Wilton Phung – BPolo October 2018 AofM

Boys’ Water Polo:  Wilton Phung   10th Grader Current GPA: 4.00 Varsity

“Wilton is a 2nd year water polo player who has shown absolutely stellar improvements over the year.  Due to injury he was asked to step up into the primary defensive position of 2-meter defense and has become a key part of our defensive strategy.  He may be small, but he is incredibly smart and is able to slow plays down enough to either steal the ball or cause poor shots.  His intelligence in positioning and understanding of the game around him often sets up steals for his team mates, these stats go unrecorded for Wilton but are incredibly important to his team as a whole.  Even with these unmarked stats Wilton averages close to half a dozen steals a game.  As one of several sophomores on our team he can only continue to improve and will become a powerful defensive player for our program in the years to come.”  Coach Morris

 

Lupita Nieto – GVolleyball October 2018 AofM

“I nominate Lupita Nieto for October Athlete of the Month.  Miss Nieto has grown so much this season and has become a reliable key player.  She’s usually the first one in the gym and the first one to set up the court.  She has so much potential and I can’t wait to get her there.  I am honored to have her again for two more years and I can’t wait to see how great a player she will become.” 

Coach Sok
