Congratulations to Emily Teplansky and Richard Morel on earning September’s Athletes of the Month!

Emily earned Athlete of the Month as a Junior on the Varsity Swim Team. Emily has been swimming for about 9 years and when she’s not swimming for Walt Whitman, she competes on a club team throughout the year. “My favorite part about Whitman is the spirit here, like being in Powder Puff; it was so fun.” As far as being on the Varsity Swim team, Emily appreciates how positive her teammates are when cheering each other on at meets and how they share the same competitive energy and urge to win. Emily looks forward to the rest of the season and qualifying for State Championships.

Richard earned Athlete of the Month as a Junior on the Boys Varsity Soccer Team. Richard plays striker and center attack for Walt Whitman’s offense and is one of the team’s top scorers. Being a part of the soccer team is what Richard likes most about attending Walt Whitman. He started playing on Varsity as a sophomore and in total has been playing the sport for at least 12 years. During his time off from the Whitman team, Richard plays in a club soccer league. Richard is looking forward to playoffs as the team finishes out the season.

Congratulations Emily and Richard!!
