This week's athlete of the week is Melina Belenardo '20 from the varsity field hockey team. Belenardo '20 had an amazing week with several goals and assists in the first few games of the season. She knocked in 2 goals in the win over Cheshire Academy and earned a hat trick with three goals in the win over Kingswood-Oxford. On Saturday, against Wilbraham and Monson, Belenardo '20 assisted on the first goal of the game, and she consistently pressured the goalie and kept the ball in the circle to score. Her offensive speed and skill with the ball and her strong work ethic and intensity have helped the Porter's field hockey team get off to a positive start this season! Congratulations on athlete of the week, Melina.
In the fall of 2018, Porter's will welcome two new faculty members who will also be taking over varsity athletic programs. We could not be more excited to welcome these game-changing coaches and educators to our community!
