Student Athletes of the Month – January 2017
Priscila Berdeja ’17 & Skyler Nash ’17 have been leading their teams on the basketball court this season. We’re proud to announce they have been named the Athletes of the Month for January. See what their coaches had to say below.
Priscila Berdeja ’17
From Varsity Girls’ coach Todd Siekman:
“Priscila is a true leader on the basketball court. Her tenacious on-the-ball defense has set the tone for our overall defensive plan. She has controlled the ball handler, pressuring opposing point guards into repeated mistakes over the last month, and the team has averaged 20 steals per game over the last 5 games.
Offensively, Priscila is the starting point guard, competently assessing the opposing defense and choosing the appropriate offense. She has averaged over 13 points, 3 steals and 2 assists per game. She hit some key 3 pointers in a tightly heated win over rival Hebron. She is a tireless worker and co-captain/leader of the team.”
Skyler Nash ’17
From Boys’ Varsity Coach Cory McClure:
“Skyler is averaging 23 points, 5 rebounds, and 4 assists per contest in the month of
January. He recently had a 40 point game with 6 rebounds and 4 assist performance over Cheshire Academy at the
AA showcase. Skyler recently opened up our MLK Day program
with an emotional speech
that received a standing ovation. He’s a leader at Gould, both on and off the court.”
