Athletics Update: Volleyball Kicks Off Intramural Competition

Betel Zewude’s stellar serving led the Gold squad to a definitive 2-0 win over White in volleyball’s first intramural contest this winter. Kesariya Nallari-Jhala chipped in with great touches for the victors, while Eike Kiecza led the White squad with strong play at the net. The volleyball team has divided into three separate squads this winter and will be competing against each other on a regular basis. Collectively, the team is improving tremendously and even newcomers like Aleta Sandoski, Nina Cohen-Perlmutter, Alden Largay, and Sahana Miduturu are developing into consistent contributors during game play.

  • PEAK braved the cold and headed outside this week for some sledding and hiking. Owen Bantham-Livermore, Allie Haile, and Grace Sullivan have all transitioned from competitive athletics this fall to a more relaxed approach this winter.
  • Ken MacDougall and Alexander Dainora-Cohen have been great additions to the wrestling program. Both athletes are demonstrating strong work ethics during practices and an eagerness to learn a new sport.
  • New fencers Simone Pattisall and Charis Liu have been improving steadily on the strip thanks to strong footwork and attention to detail. Veteran Joshua Flanagan has worked to help bring the newcomers up to speed.
  • Basketball will resume interscholastic competition next week. JV players Jovana Zivanovic, Mimi Cradick, Yaseen Saeed, and Theo Kelman are excited for their first games. All four will be counted on to contribute solid minutes against Rashi.
