Safi is a human backboard! He wears his opponents down with his relentless consistency. However, he is not by any means one-dimensional – he hits hard when he needs to, attacks the net when the opportunity strikes and is not afraid to hit moon balls if that is what it takes to win the point. He is the winningest player on our team with a personal record of 8-0, giving up only 1 set in 8 matches and outscoring his opponents 95 games to 24! Way to go Safi! – Jami Cashin, Head Coach, Varsity Tennis

“Carson excels at tennis because of her hard work and perseverance. She shows up to every practice ready to improve, always with a smile on her face and a great attitude. She works so hard to create a positive atmosphere so that practices are fun and the players enjoy their time together, all while inspiring her peers to work hard to improve their game. The team is so lucky to have her as their team leader this year, leading by example on and off the court. Even when she was injured, she was at every practice and every match, cheering on her teammates and helping them to stay focused and work hard. We are so excited to have her back on the courts and can’t wait to see what the season holds for her and the rest of the team! Congratulations Carson!” – Jami Cashin, Head Coach, Varsity Tennis

Women’s History Month

Women’s History Month was established by Congress in 1987 to celebrate the achievements of women in American history. Each day this month, we will recognize women from America and other parts of the world who have made important contributions to humanity.

Manuela Sáenz

Manuela Sáenz (1797-1856) was an Ecuadorian feminist and revolutionary. Sáenz grew up in Quito as the illegitimate daughter of a Spanish noble, but moved to Lima in 1819 with her wealthy English merchant husband. After learning about resistance efforts against Spanish rule at the social gatherings she hosted, Sáenz joined the conspiracy to liberate Peru. In 1822, she left her husband and returned to Quito where she met and fell in love with Simón Bolívar. Not merely Bolívar’s lover, Sáenz did political work that included distributing leaflets, advocating for women’s rights, and spying. She also served as a soldier, supply runner, and nurse during several battles and she was awarded military rank (ultimately Colonel) for her efforts. After Bolívar’s death, Sáenz was forced into exile by his enemies and largely forgotten. In recent decades, Sáenz’s memory has been revived in Latin America and she is seen as an important figure in the struggle for independence and a feminist role model.

Thank you so much for being diligent about wearing your masks! A few of you are still having trouble and for clarification, here is the process for you:
1. A faculty member will give you a warning.
2. After the warning, that faculty member will infract you and you will serve detention. This will be communicated to your parents as well.
3. After you serve detention, if another infraction occurs, you, your advisor, and your parents will meet with Mrs. Zalac and there will be escalated consequences.
