Sahnet Ramirez ’20- Girls Varsity Squash

Sahnet has had a great season for the Wildcats. This past week she earned 2nd place in the 4th flight at the NEPSAC Class C tournament held at Suffield on Saturday. Her performance helped the girls varsity squash team earn sixth place at the tournament. Seeded 7th Sahnet played her finest squash of the season and upset the 2nd and 3rd seeded players before taking the title match to a fifth game. She played with a combination of physicality, intensity, and intelligence that at times, simply overwhelmed her opponents.  In matches of four games, five games, and five games, she displayed discipline and focus throughout. Sahnet’s exceptional play puts an exclamation point on her season and gives promise of even greater squash to be played in 2019-2020.

Insoo Kang ’19 – Boys Varsity Basketball

Insoo has been the consummate teammate throughout his two years on the varsity basketball team.  His commitment to improving his skills is unmatched on a team that has several boys with similar traits. His tremendous work ethic has paid off with improved play throughout the past two years.  It was on full display when he buried a three pointer from the corner to kick off a big senior night win over rival Suffield.  Additionally, Insoo is a tremendous teammate who’s encouragement and support of his teammates is unyielding.   His senior leadership has been a huge part of the success of our season to date.

Jordyn Meunier ’21- Girls Varsity Basketball

Jordyn has been a valuable weapon for the Wildcats this season. This past week her great play continued with a strong performance against Miss Porters on Wednesday, leading the team in scoring with 11 points. She was a great leader on the floor and her defense sparked not only her own offensive weaponry, but that of her teammates. In the team’s senior game against Kent, Jordyn had 5 three-pointers en route to scoring 23 points. She was strong with the ball and commanded the court with confidence. Jordyn provides a positive example for all her teammates as she is consistently one of the hardest workers on the floor. Constantly working to be a better player helps to drive her teammates to do the same. The team will continue to lean on Jordyn as they head into the NEPSAC tournament.

On Saturday, in the Cats’ 3-0 win over BB&N, Kate had a goal and an assist, capping her senior season on a high note.  Kate has been a catalyst on offense for the team since she arrived in 9th grade.  She has tremendous hockey sense and sees plays before they even happen, a trait that allows her to be a serious contributor to the success of the team.  Additionally, Kate is a fierce competitor and sets the bar for the team with her work ethic. Leading by example, she has been a terrific captain for the Wildcats this season.

Joe Easton ‘23– Boys JV Hockey

Joe is one of the most dedicated and hardest working players for the JV hockey team this season.
