Athletes of the Month | November 2017
Maddie Lamontagne ’19 & Duncan Forbes ’18 Named Athletes of the Month for November 2017
From Field Hockey Head Coach Kelly Hood:
Fit, feisty, and fast, Maddie Lamontagne has become a stand out right forward on the field hockey team. She showed commitment, enthusiasm, and a competitive spirit all season long, giving 100% at every game and practice. Throughout the fall, she developed her ball control and stickhandling skills, making her an offensive threat. Maddie’s hard work culminated in a timely goal against Hebron, securing the 1-0 win during the MAISAD championship game, ending a 17-year-long drought for the Huskies. She is deserving of this award for many reasons but mainly because she beat me in a plank contest mid-season, an impressive feat that I am still upset about. Get ready for a rematch this spring, Maddie. Game on.
Duncan Forbes ’18
From Cross Country Running Head Coach Adam Leff:
Duncan has excelled as captain of our team – he serves as a mentor to all our younger runners, is able to support and bring the entire team together, and he puts his heart and soul into each and every training session. Everything we do has a purpose and Duncan pays attention to all the details be it preparation, strategy, and even shortening his race by taking turns full speed by following the apex. He runs with heart and is a model of determination on the course! At New Englands, Duncan ran a strategic race that had him purposefully take it out from the start a little easier than normal so that he could finish hard, run by people on the completely uphill middle mile, and contest the end of the race with a lot of energy in the tank! Duncan carried out this strategy to perfection, finishing 22nd overall on a hard and hilly New England course, leading our team to a third-place finish in a field that comprised 45 schools! Duncan’s leadership helped Gould to a podium finish in each of his four years here and we wish him all the best for the next leg of his career at the college level!
