Athlete of the Week: November 15-21, 2021

Congratulations to varsity girls basketball player McKenna M. '28 on being selected as our Athlete of the Week for the week of November 15-21, 2021.
McKenna helped lead the Cougars to an overtime win over Riverdale in the season opener, scoring a game-high 18 points in her varsity debut as a sixth grader.

"I am so proud of her and the grit she displayed on the court," said head coach Elisha Murray. "It is hard enough that it is your varsity debut, but to be a sixth grader stepping onto the court with high schools, that takes a special confidence."

McKenna hit two free throws in the final seconds to send the game into overtime. From there, she knocked down the winning free throws to solidify the season-opening victory for the Cougars.
