Teagan has been incredible all season for the girls varsity soccer team. Playing in the back for the Wildcats, her play has been critical in shutting down major opponents in every game. Her speed and athleticism make her a tough part of the defense, and her play has, without a doubt, helped the team be successful this season.

Jersey Strum ’20- Girls Varsity Volleyball

Jersey has provided a steady, reliable presence to the varsity volleyball team all season. From her position as libero, she is the ultimate security blanket as the last line of defense. She is unflappable whether standing in the way of a rocketing attack or diving for a corner tip. By roaming the backline with such diligence, she has earned the trust of the blockers and sideline defenders- this has helped transform the Williston defense into one cohesive unit.  Jersey also gets involved in the attack as well. Her control on her serve comes in the form of her delicate placement, as well as the speed of the ball. As a backrow attacker, she is fearless, having the confidence to aggressively send the ball back in play trying to win the point. Finally, as one of the co-captains of the team, Jersey has provided consistent leadership since the preseason. This leadership will be crucial as the team heads into the final weeks of the season.

Dylan Haaland ’20- Boys JVA Soccer

Dylan has been a force in the midfield all year long for the boys JV A soccer team, both offensively and defensively. In the team’s most prolific win of the season to date, a 1-0 victory over Taft, he scored the lone goal in a scrappy battle in front of the net off a free kick. He embodies the full effort and heart our whole team needed to defeat a tough opponent. His leadership, energy, and positive attitude have been a big part of the team’s success this year. The Wildcats will continue to lean on Dylan as they head into the final stretch of the season.

Jenna Perry ’21- Girls JV Cross Country

Jenna, a new runner to the girls cross country team, has brought the energy and interest that is needed to succeed in a sport that is demanding both mentally and physically.  In practice during the week, she works with determination and effort, and she is one of the few runners who has decreased her 5K time every Saturday. At the Westminster Invitational JV race, Jenna had a tough fall on a treacherous downhill in the second mile, but got up and finished the race, passing several runners to place 9th out of 55 runners, good enough for an individual award.  Against Taft, her time of 25:46 gave her another personal best, almost four minutes faster from where she started a few weeks ago. The team looks forward to her continued growth during the last few weeks of the season.

Charlie Vachet ’21- Boys Varsity Cross Country

The Wildcats were so excited to have Charlie join the team this fall with a strong cross country background, and the hype was definitely real. Charlie has consistently contributed to the varsity team this fall. He had his best race of the season on Saturday against Taft finishing 5th for Williston and 12th overall in 19:40. This was his fastest time on the team’s home course and he improved 27 seconds from last week’s race.  He moves from 11th to 8th on the Honor Roll with this performance. The Wildcats are excited to see Charlie continue to improve and push himself as they head into the final stretch of the season.

Brendan Capshaw ’25-Boys Junior Soccer

Brendan has had a great season for the boys junior soccer team this fall. His strong play continued Wednesday as he scored three goals against a strong opponent from Eaglebrook School. His huge performance was critical to helping the Wildcats earn their first victory of the season.
