Athletes of the Week

This week we have three athletes of the week.  First up is equestrian team member and freshman Courtney Lestock.

Courtney has been a very consistent rider, scoring well in each of the meets. She was the team’s high point rider this year and our high point rider in the State Meet.

According to Equestrian Coach Joe Szmania: “Courtney exhibits many virtues, but I think that the virtues of composure and bravery describe her best.  I have never seen her lose her composure or seem rattled during a meet.  I have never seen an equestrian as calm and composed as Courtney. Courtney is brave.  Horse riding is a very dangerous sport and Courtney specializes in the jumping classes, which are the most physically demanding and dangerous classes an equestrian can do.”

Next up is JV and varsity soccer player and junior Jillian Cendol.  Jillian play midfield for the JV soccer team.

According to Head JV Soccer Coach Michela Krieger:  “Jill is always willing to go above and beyond to help out the team and coaching staff no matter what the task may be. She is continuously working hard and pushing her teammates to become better athletes, on both the JV and the Varsity teams. Her positive attitude and constant support of the other girls makes coaching her so much fun!”

Next up is varsity soccer player and senior Katie Wisniewski.  Katie is the varsity goalkeeper.  She has had a tremendous year in goal this year playing against some of the best teams in the country. Katie has made some incredible saves, like a PK stop against nationally ranked Walsh Jesuit, to keep us in some big games.

According to Head Varsity Soccer Coach Chip Smith:  “Katie’s intensity, leadership, and passion have really stood out at times this year. She has worked really hard to hold others accountable but also provide an ear to help build teammates up when they are struggling.

Katie’s passion for the sport has really sparked our training sessions and games at times over the season. She is thoughtful about her performances and how she can help the team improve. And even when she herself has struggled this season, she has always come back to try and refocus and get better.”

Congratulations to Courtney Lestock, Jillian Cendol, and Katie Wisniewski, this week’s Atheltes of the Week!

Research Project

Jessica Kusina, a 2010 graduate from Notre Dame Academy, is conducting a research project about teenagers’ self-image and personal values and needs your help! Jessica is in the Clinical Psychology PhD program at Case Western Reserve University, where she researchers and conducts therapy with children, teens, and family members. For this project, Jessica will be coming to NDA on Thursday October 24. If you would like to be a part of this study and have permission from your parents, Jessica will have you complete an anonymous survey about the beliefs you hold about yourself, others, and the world. Then you will be in a small group, where you will discuss some of these beliefs. Parents will receive an email about this study, with a link to the electronic permission form. If you are interested in participating, we encourage you to talk to your parents about this opportunity.

Congratulations to all three NDA volleyball teams as they beat the Fremont Ross Little Giants in last night’s contests on Senior Night! Freshmen won in 2, JV in 3, and Varsity in 3. A special congrats to the two seniors in the program, Hailey Kaufman and Jennifer Ngo!

Athletes of the Week

This week, we have three athletes of the week, all from our volleyball program.  First up is freshmen volleyball player and middle hitter Katelyn Jones.

According to Head Freshmen Volleyball Coach Tammy Kaseman: “Katelyn’s hard work, effort and concentration makes her a very coachable team player. Katelyn’s “Enthusiastic” personality is contagious.  She helps out others on the team and lifts everyone up when we may be facing a difficult set. She is the loudest on the team, our biggest cheerleader and a real pleasure to coach.”

Next up is JV volleyball player and sophomore Emma Kapszukiewicz.  Emma is a middle blocker and outside hitter for the JV team.

According to Head JV Volleyball Coach Matt Trzcinski:  “Emma 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. Emma embodies the virtue “enthusiastic.” Her positive attitude and willingness to push herself and lift others allows her to help herself and her teammates in moments of adversity. Additionally, she also 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!”

Next up is varsity volleyball player and junior Anna Busse.  Anna is a libero for the varsity team.  According to Head Varsity Volleyball Coach Jeff Pitzen:  “Anna she leads the team with 180 digs, but her effort and willingness to hit the court has been outstanding.  Anna’s resolve has been strong in her quest to be the libero on the varsity team.  She has been pushed hard and “persevered” through tough competition to get to where she is and the coaching staff is very proud of Anna.  Keep it up young lady.”

Congratulations to Katelyn Jones, Emma Kapszukiewicz, and Anna Busse, this week’s Athletes of the Week!
