Athletes of Week

Hazel Jacobs ’25- Girls Varsity Lacrosse

In the Wildcats first game of the season on Saturday, Hazel had a dominant game in goal. Playing behind a sturdy defense, she had a calming effect on the whole team thanks to her 13 saves. Her efforts held a quality Middlesex team scoreless through three quarters, and they helped the Wildcats secure a season-opening 11-2 victory. While Hazel continuously turned away scoring attempts, she also calmly led the team’s clearing efforts, helping transition the ball to offense after a defensive stop. Her steady, strong play and consistent communication were a huge reason for the team’s first win of the season.

Joseph Killcommons ’25- Boys Varsity Lacrosse

Joseph was a steady force for the boys varsity lacrosse team’s offensive attack during their first two games of the season. He managed an impressive stat line, racking up 10 points (7 goals and 3 assists). As a junior captain he has been phenomenal leader for Wildcats as he is consistently one of the hardest workers on and off the field, providing an excellent example for all his teammates, especially the underclassmen. His coaches can’t wait to watch him shine the rest of the year and his team will continue to lean on him as they work through the remainder of the season.

Mel McCullough ‘26-Varsity Water Polo

Mel has worked hard these first weeks of the season and her progress in goal has given the team a great deal of flexibility as it looks to three-peat as NEPSAC champions. Mel’s positioning in the cage and strong outlet passes were a major factor in the team’s opening 18-8 win over Andover. With 5 saves in the game Mel helped lead the defense in a strong outing. The team is looking forward to Mel’s continued progress over the course of the spring!
