Athletes of the Week: Sam Reynolds and Alexandre Reissman

Congratulations to Sam Reynolds and Alexandre Reissman on being named Athletes of the Week for November 10-16.

Sam Reynolds '15 (Chelmsford, MA) had an incredible week to wrap up a stellar Cushing field hockey career.  This past week against Brooks in the NEPSAC quarterfinals, Sam had 12 saves in regulation and 3 saves in both OTs. Sam then made spectacular saves against the first 4 Brooks’ shooters and only allowed the final shooter to slip a ball past during the shootout.  On Sunday against St. Mark’s in the NEPSAC semi-final game, Sam had 14 saves, only letting a single goal squeak by with 3 minutes left in the game.  Sam is a phenom between the pipes and we would not have had the season we did without the tremendous play of this talented young athlete.
 
Alexandre Reissmann '15 (San Paulo, Brazil) is a 2-year captain, 4-year senior who has led the Varsity Soccer team to back-to-back Class B tournament appearances. He has started and played in every game on the Cushing schedule since his arrival, and during this time has amassed 39 goals and 28 assists. In 2013, he was named to the Junior NEPSAC All-Star team and in 2014 he has been named to the Senior NEPSAC All-Star team as well as an All-State selection. Alex will move on to Northeastern upon graduation from Cushing to reunite on the soccer field with Cushing graduate Ackim Mpofu ’14.
