JOHN CAHILL ’20

Varsity Wrestling

What is your favorite part about wrestling?

“My favorite thing about wrestling is beating the other team and working hard everyday to improve myself at my sport.”

Who do you admire as a wrestler and why? 

“The person I look up to the most as a wrestler is probably Jordan Burroughs. He is a wrestler that went to the Olympics for team U.S.A., and he’s really good.”

 

NAMLHUN JACHUNG ’20

Varsity Girl’s Waterpolo

When did you start playing water polo and why?

“I actually started this year because it looked really interesting, and I wanted to try something new and play a team sport.”

What is it like playing with upper school students?

“All the girls on the water polo team are really fun, but they also know when to be serious. They’re really good role models for balancing their athletic life and their school life, and they guide us [freshmen] a lot.”

 

HENRY SANDERSON ’20

Varsity Boy’s Soccer

When did you start playing soccer and why?

“I began playing when I was two or three because my dad had me start, and I have played ever since.”

Has being on a varsity team helped you in other aspects of life, if so why?

“Being on varsity helped me with other aspects of life because our coach likes to relate to stuff to the real world too. He said ‘two plus two does not equal four because you can make your world however you want it to be,’ so I have taken that upon myself. If there is anything I want to achieve, I can strive for it.”

 

MASON HOOKS ’20

Varsity Boy’s Basketball

What is your favorite aspect of basketball?

“Basketball is really great because there are so many different ways that you can succeed. One can be a post player play inside and get rebounds, but one can also be someone that can shoot from the outside. You don’t need that much natural ability to be really good; you can just learn a lot.”

What advice would you give to younger players?

“Just keep working as hard as possible, and that is how you are going to make it. That is how you get better.”
