Nicholas Alessandro '17

As a new captain this year, Nicholas Alessandro '17 has taken on a lot of responsibility for the team. He is always focused on getting us prepared for whatever we are doing, whether it is practice, a game, or even just a drill. He cares about and supports his teammates, demonstrating effort and team spirit. Along with the other captains, Nick has helped lead the team through the early weeks of the season. He is a strong role model for the younger players as he embodies the mission of the athletic department. Congratulations Nick on being named this week's "Knight of the Week"!

Gwen Gould '18

This week's "Knight of the Week" is a basketball player that always gives it her all in practice as well as games. Gwen Gould '18 can be seen as a leader on and off the court. During the Knights first game, Gwen hustled up and down the court, played smart, and did not give up despite a loss. Following the team's loss, she made sure everyone of her teammates remained optimistic and positive about the season. As a leader, she is always making sure her teammates are motivated and in practices is willing to help those who are struggling with a particular skill or drill. The leadership, work ethic, and great attitude make Gwen well-deserving of being named this week's "Knight of the Week"! Congratulations!
