Sarah Glaser, and her teammates on the softball team, got off to a rough start at 1-4 but even before the weather turned, Sarah and her Lady Wildcats turned their season around, winning the next 14 out of 15 games and launching them into a memorable playoff run. “We worked really hard and took third place in Suffolk County,” said our Molloy bound softball star. Sarah also played basketball at Whitman, she is a member of the Girls Leaders Organization, the National Honor Society, volunteered for the Booster Club, and is involved in numerous community service opportunities. She ended her high school softball career as All-County.

Camilee Getchell had a solid lacrosse season. “While we struggled in many of our games, we saw improvement in the program overall,” said Camilee, acknowledging the rebuilding goal.   “We had one of our best year in a long time, and I’m excited for the programs future with the players we have.” Camilee also played soccer and basketball at Whitman. She is a member of the Girls Leaders Organization, and the National Honor Society. Camilee was awarded All-Division for the 2017 season and will be attending the University of Alabama in the fall.

It surprised Whitman junior Aiden Smyth to have such a strong spring track season. He took the winter off with an injury, and came back even stronger winning most of his races that included the 1600m and 3200m and placed 4th in the division for both events. He continued his success in the county meet placing in the top tier and finished in the top ten for the state qualifier. Aiden was awarded All-County for the 1600m. Aiden runs cross-country in the fall and winter track. He is a member of the National Honor Society, the World Language Honor Society and keeps a busy volunteer schedule. We should see plenty more of him as he enters his senior year in the fall.
