Athlete of the Week | Sarah Potter '20

Week of Dec. 4 - 10

Sarah took advantage of her first start between the pipes and earned a Cushing victory with a decisive 5-2 win over Phillips Exeter.  Sarah made 27 saves and stood her ground in the final two minutes when Exeter’s power forwards and power play looked to net a few to tie up the game.  Looking like a seasoned veteran, Sarah has worked hard for her time and earned her start in the net.  She is constantly and consistently improving with her positive attitude and remarkable teamwork and leadership.  Sarah is a three-sport Varsity athlete here at Cushing. This is her second “Athlete of Week” honor for this year; she earned her first during field hockey season.  Sarah is the epitome of a Cushing athlete with her hard work, dedication, and never-quit attitude.
