“I believe we have the proper perspective on athletics. We think students learn certain things playing sports that they won't learn anywhere else in terms of teamwork, dedication and sportsmanship. It’s an extension of what we do in the classroom.“JOHN MACKAY, DEAN of special projectS

AJ has been on a mission since the start of the season. She arrives at each practice ready to train. Over Winter Break, she was diligent about following the team practices. She is focused and determined on race day and has the results to show for it. Last week at our meet against Milton, AJ Chicharro swam two personal bests in the 200 individual medley (2:22.99) and 100 breaststroke (1:14.55). She was also a member of both the winning 200 medley and 400 freestyle relays.

Chiron has been key to the Dragons' success this week as they went 2-1 and improved to 8-5 on the season. She tallied 38 points, hitting clutch outside shots at times when the Dragons really needed it. At only 5'6" she has been tasked with shutting down the opponent's post player, who often towers over her. She has stepped up to this challenge, and through her strength and determination has held some talented players to single digits, an effort that has had a tremendous impact on the team's success.

With a 19 save shutout in Friday evening's 5-0 at BB&N and 44 saves on 45 shots faced in Saturday's 4-1 win over Pomfret, this SG senior goaltender backstopped the Dragons through two hard-fought wins to kick-off 2019, setting up the team to make a run as they enter the bulk of ISL play. Time and time again his steady demeanor served to quell SG's opponents' attack. The only thing cooler than his well-tailored burgundy gameday suit was his .984 save percentage on the weekend.
