Well into its second year of existence, the Dragon Nation Sports Blog Athlete of the Week has a couple of firsts.
First is that due to a crazy schedule over the past 14 days, we are presenting two weeks' worth of Athletes of the Weeks.
And, for the first time ever, the blog is honoring an entire team.
The GFA fencing squad competed in a tri-meet at Fairfield Warde High School over the weekend and not only did the Dragons sweep the meet, but all five of the fencers went undefeated.
Seniors Amy Petschek, Eva Zhang and Willem Schuddeboom joined junior Zach Rothwell and freshman Alex Valbuena in going unbeaten on the day.
Two basketball players, meanwhile, are honored for their efforts from two weeks ago.
Greg Lawrence of the boys team netted the 1,000th point of his career in a game against Redemption Christian Academy while Kelly van Hoesen netted a career-high 16 points in a game against and 14 points against Holy Child.
