Athlete of the Week | Ethan Whitney '21

Week of Jan. 8 - 14

Ethan is a freshman multi-sport athlete here at Cushing who has made an immediate impact on the Alpine Ski Team.  Despite his youth, Ethan is one of the most experienced racers on the team.  Ethan’s debut for Cushing resulted in a strong race where he won first overall in a field of over 80 skiers.  This placement helped to assist the team to an overall third place finish out of seven competing schools.  Skiing is Ethan’s passion and he works hard every day at Cushing practice, as well as putting in hours on the weekends for his non-Cushing team.  Ethan is not afraid to give pointers to the less experienced racers on the team and he will be a top contributor in the team this season.
