A lot of hard work and dedication has earned Avery McKenzie the Male Athlete of the Month for April. Avery runs the 100M and performs the Triple- and Long-Jump for spring track. “Lower body strength requires a lot of time in the weight room,” said our Boston College bound senior who will be running track at college and majoring in accounting. “I love all the activities you can do here at Whitman,” said Avery, who also played basketball for the Wildcats. “It’s a good place to be.”

Whitman junior Taylor Epstein is an outstanding pitcher for the Wildcat Softball team and will be a key component, as the ladies get ready for the playoffs. “We’ve had a lot of wins in April, and the whole team is playing really well,” said Taylor, who also works very hard at her sport with her dedication to a travel team. Taylor also played field hockey for the Wildcats and looks forward to her senior year on the turf next fall. “Whitman has good athletic programs, good teachers, the whole environment makes it a fun place to be,” said Taylor.

Congratulations to both of our dedicated and hard working April Athletes of the Month!
