Congratulations to Grace Weigele and Michael Aloisi on earning Athletes of the Month for November!

Grace Weigele earned Athlete of the Month for her outstanding Cross Country season. Grace is a Junior runner who qualified for the Cross Country State Meet in Plattsburgh this year. “The state qualifying meet was the best race I ran this season,” Grace shared when reflecting on the season’s highlights. “It was definitely the most competitive and it really paid off.” At States, she came in fourth overall throughout all of Section XI in this very challenging and esteemed race, with a time of 17:58. As a Junior, Grace will continue to run Cross Country and long distance for the Winter and Spring Track teams. With her Senior year approaching, Grace knows she would like to study nursing after graduation and continue running in college.

Michael Aloisi earned Athlete of the Month for November as a Senior Football and Basketball player. Michael was captain and quarterback of the Varsity Football team in the Fall, making notable passes, runs, and touchdowns that advanced the team throughout the season. His ability to make major plays while communicating with his teammates made him an effective captain and leader. This winter, Michael is a guard on the Boys Basketball team for his third year as a Varsity player and is looking forward to his last season on the court as a Walt Whitman Senior.

Congratulations Michael and Grace!
