Athletes of the Week

This week, we have two athletes of the week.  First up is equestrian team member and junior Jayna Lonsway.  Jayna has been a member of NDA’s Equestrian Team for three years.  Jayna places in both English and Western classes.  She excels in Equitation, Pattern, and Bareback classes which demonstrates her superior horsemanship and technical abilities. At a recent meet Jayna placed second in Saddle Seat Equitation, second in Saddle Seat Pattern, fifth in Hunt Seat Bareback, and then followed that up with seventh in Western Bareback. She is a very dependable and versatile rider.

According to Equestrian Coach Joe Szmania: “Jayna is the type of athlete that any coach would love to have on their team. She combines a quiet confidence with the virtue of Determination and a positive attitude.  Jayna competes in very physically demanding classes and she is always willing to sacrifice for her team. I asked Jayna to enter a class in the State Meet that I know will be a bit of a challenge for her.  After telling me that she would train for it she said, “Go ahead and put me in that class, I will just go for it.” As a coach, you can’t ask for anything more than that.”

Next up is varsity soccer player and junior Rachel Spencer.  Rachel is a forward on the varsity soccer team and currently has three goals and three assists for nine points.

According to Head Varsity Soccer Coach Chip Smith:  “Rachel always puts team first. She does not care about how many goals she scores or awards that she gets.  She simply wants the team to be successful.  No one works harder than Rachel.  Her energy and effort often set the tone for practices and games, and always gets her teammates and coaches fired up.  Rachel’s Passion for competition is contagious and her intensity level is always at a high standard.  Rachel is simply first and foremost an amazing person, and it’s been a pleasure coaching her.”

Congratulations to Jayna Lonsway and Rachel Spencer, this week’s Athletes of the Week!

Athletes of the Week

This week, we have two athletes of the week.  First up is freshman volleyball player Alexandria Roth.  Allie is a right side hitter for the freshmen volleyball team.

According to Head Freshmen Volleyball Coach Allison Rossler:   “Allie has the willingness to jump into any role or position that is asked of her during practice or in matches.  Allie emulates the virtue “Other-Centered” because she puts her team first and always wants what is best for the team.”

Next up is JV volleyball plyer and sophomore Abigail Radabaugh.  Abby is a right side hitter for the JV volleyball team.

According to Head JV Volleyball Coach Matt Trzcinski:  “Abby is a talented athlete and her love of volleyball is very apparent! She is constantly working to improve her own skills and continuously pushes her teammates to work hard, too. Abby embodies the virtue “enthusiastic.” Her positive attitude and willingness to push and lift allows her to help herself and her teammates in moments of adversity. Additionally, Abby embodies the virtue of “teamwork” because when she is on the court or waiting to play, she is always cheering the loudest for her teammates!”

Congratulations to Alexandria Roth and Abigail Radabaugh, this week’s Athletes of the Week!
