“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.
Nur Jahan (1577-1645) was an empress who effectively acted as co-ruler of the Mughal Empire. Named Mirh-un-Nisa by her Persian noble family, she married Emperor Jahangir only after her first husband was executed for treason in 1607. Renamed Nur Jahan (meaning “light of the world”) by her new husband, she was renowned as a poet, expert tiger hunter, garden designer, and architect. She also quickly established herself as a political force: Jahangir sought her advice before issuing most orders and she sat alongside her husband at court. She issued at least one order independently, signing it “Nur Jahan, the Lady Emperor.” and she was the only Mughal empress to have coins struck with her name on them. After Jahangir died, she was imprisoned and then exiled by the new emperor, Shah Jahan.
