Athletes of the Week
Suffield acknowledged nominees and recipients of “Athlete of the Week” at lunch on February 6. The award recognizes outstanding achievements by male and female students whose contributions embody the spirit of Suffield athletics and citizenship.
The female athletes of the week were Peyton Cahn ’18 and Hattie Bauchiero ’18 from girls’ varsity squash. Playing up a spot and in their best performances of the season, Peyton and Hattie led the Tigers to a 5-2 win against Canterbury on January 31. Each played in very competitive five-set matches, one earning the win while the other fell just short in a back and forth overtime battle. Peyton and Hattie have worked hard, continue to improve, and are playing their best squash of the season.
The male athlete of the week was Jack Cobb ’20 from the varsity alpine ski team. Jack won both giant slalom races on January 31 and led the Tigers to decisive wins over six other schools, including the always tough Berkshire team. It was Suffield’s first win against Berkshire in over seven years. Jack’s speed and leadership on the slopes have helped carry the Tigers to an undefeated season thus far.
