Athletes of the Week
Suffield acknowledged nominees and recipients of “Athlete of the Week” at lunch on February 13. The award recognizes outstanding achievements by male and female students whose contributions embody the spirit of Suffield athletics and citizenship.
The female athlete of the week was Chelsea Han ’19 from junior varsity squash. Chelsea battled back from a 1-2 deficit to defeat her opponent 3-2 in the Tigers’ match against Williston on February 10. The comeback-win from the #6 slot swung momentum in favor of Suffield and led to the team’s 5-2 overall win. Chelsea has worked hard on her game throughout the season and has improved significantly.
The male athletes of the week were Rory Tettemer ’18 and Nick Vardakas ’18 from Tiger B basketball. Rory and Nick helped lead Suffield to big wins over Hebrew High and Taft on February 8 and 10. Playing particularly well in the game against Taft, the duo combined for 31 points during the Tigers’ 33-30 upset victory. Their efforts spearheaded a great team accomplishment in taking down a very talented Rhino team with only one loss on the season.
