Award Season!

One of the best times of the year is when the recognition and awards start to trickle in - especially after a season of hard work and dedication.  It means a great deal to me that our athletes received the acknowledgement they very much deserve.

First off is Charlotte Green and Peem Chatikavanij. Our two senior captains were voted, by there teammates, onto the All-NESCAC Sportsmanship Team.   We've talked at great length as to what it means to demonstrate "good sportsmanship" and below are the bullet points I asked the team to consider when voting.  Furthermore, and impressively, this is the third time Peem has won!

Sportsmanship is much more than just being respectful - it is demonstrated by those that are...
Confident, AND humble.
Supportive and knowledgeable.
Respectful and dedicated.
Acting courageous with humility.

The next award winners are our All-Academic NESCAC team members!  Rules are you have to be varsity team member for a minimum of 2 seasons and have a 3.35 cumulative GPA.  Life is all about doing more than one thing well... and the group below are distinguishing themselves both in the pool and the classroom.  What an fantastic accomplishment.
