Athletes for Month of March
Fran Keating (lk)
Congratulations to our athletes Elise Mallon and Riker Pratt who are our athletes for the month of March.
Junior Elise Mallon has been on the varsity girls lacrosse team for three years. She began her transition from low defense to defensive midfielder this year, and she immediately made her presence known across the whole field. During five games in March, many of which found the team short-handed due to illness, Elise scored 4 goals and an assist, fielded 15 ground balls and 7 draw controls, caused 6 turnovers and blocked 2 shots. Often playing through injury, she set a great example for grit, determination, and coolness under pressure.
Freshman Riker Pratt has been on the varsity boys lacrosse team for two years. He is 69% FO percentage, 110 wins, 50 losses. His efforts at the face-off has strengthened our overall ability to execute our game plan.
