Senior Field Hockey Captain Susan Dappen

Q: What is you favorite thing about field hockey?

Dappen: The team, because we have a lot of returning girls and most of the girls have been playing together since middle school so we’re all good friends.

Q: What do you look forward to most for the upcoming season?

Dappen: This year we have a big opportunity to be one of the strongest teams in the league because we have a lot of returning players and a big senior class.  Our defense is very strong this year, and I’m think they will pose a big threat to other teams.


Junior Boys Cross Country Captain Drew Devore

Q: What is you favorite thing about cross country?

DeVore: There’s a strong sense of unity. Everyone is really supportive of each other.  Also, it’s a great way to stay in shape and have a lot of fun with some friends and to meet new people.

Q: What are you most looking forward to this year?

DeVore: This year, I’m probably looking most forward to being able to get my letter. I’ve been working to get that for my entire cross country career. Getting that will be a great achievement for me.
