Athletes of the Week

Zach Pincus ‘24-Boys Varsity Tennis

Zach, a senior Captain, has shown tremendous leadership over the first few weeks of the season. Zach has worked tirelessly to transfer the routines, expectations, and culture that was established last season, and has even improved upon them. Boys varsity tennis has a deep and dedicated squad, and it is thanks to Zach’s role-modeling and passion that the team has begun on such a strong foot.

Lucy Hoyt ’25- Varsity Water Polo

Lucy was an instrumental piece in the three big Wildcat wins this past week. She has embraced the role of swim-off-swimmer, earning extra possessions for the team each game. Additionally, Lucy has used her speed to be all over the pool, seemingly she is in more than one place at a time both on the offensive and defensive ends of the pool. Lucy’s development this spring as an effective two-way player for the Wildcats has helped to make the team even more versatile and a formidable league wide matchup!

Bryan Moore ’26- Boys Varsity Lacrosse

Bryan has been a commanding force for the boys lacrosse team’s defense so far this season. He has an ability to create turnovers and chaos in the middle of the field. In the Wildcats’ game on Saturday against Fredrick Gunn, he had multiple caused turnovers and ground balls which helped bring the team back from a 3-goal deficit at half.  Despite his youth, Bryan brings a veteran presence, and his coaches can’t wait to continue to coach him for the next 3 years.

Elle Christakos ’24- Varsity A Ultimate

In our huge Friday night game under the lights, Elle provided a spark on offense and defense. When we were down early, she fired up the team and crowd with a big layout D, popped up and fired a deep throw leading to a goal. While only throwing one score on the night, she provided much needed stability as a thrower, hitting open in-cuts and helping us move the disc. Elle will be a critical part of our team moving forward!

Andrew Doubleday ‘29- Boys JV Lacrosse

Andrew got his Williston lacrosse career off to a great start spearheading a 7-2 victory over the Frederick Gunn School. He has shown great instinct all year long, especially saving point-blank shots in both practice and in this first game, as well as demonstrating considerable ability to escape pressure and start our transitions into offense. He’s a pleasure to work with and will be crucial to the success of the team this season.

Bella Marinello ‘25- Girls JV Tennis

Bella stood out this week with the only singles win in the team’s first match and win against Suffield. Bella played in cold, windy conditions and displayed skill, determination, and a powerful forehand. She not only excels on the court, but she also demonstrates strong leadership qualities, sportsmanship, and teamwork. She is always ready to help, leading drills or offering to play singles or doubles matches as needed. Bella consistently arrives early to practice and diligently engages in extra skill work, setting an example for her teammates. Bella is a player to watch this season as her coaches and teammates look forward to her continued growth.

Nick Leigh ’27- JV Ultimate

In a very close game against Hartsbrook in cold pouring rain, Nick was a star. He played hard without complaint and exemplified the spirit of the game.  As a consistent handler, he leads the team in his own careful, quiet way, teaching patiently and serving others without hesitation. His teammates and coaches look forward to his continued growth and contributions as they work through the remainder of the season.
