On Wednesday, November 15, Porter's varsity soccer hosted last year's New England Class B Champions Pingree School in the NEPSAC Quarterfinals. This marked the second year in a row Porter's made the postseason tournament.
This week's athlete of the week is Adi Jalinskas '18 from varsity field hockey.
Jalinskas '18 has been a model captain and teammate this season. She persists in the face of adversity, loves to train hard, and her favorite days are the ones where she is pushed to work the hardest. She rallies her teammates with her positivity and her competitive drive. We love to witness her sprint ahead to keep a ball in bounds or her quick hand-eye coordination whenever there is an opportunity to tip it in.
Jalinskas '18 was chosen to play in the Western New England Prep School All-Star game, and she led her team to a 4-0 victory, posting 2 of the goals! Arguably, this made her the game's most valuable player. In the face of such amazing competition, it was fantastic to see her create and capitalize on the opportunities to score. Congratulations to the Athlete of the Week, Adi Jalinskas '18.
