Liv Lusitani- Cromwell (Soccer): Lusitani scored a goal in each of the Panthers tournament games last week. The junior found the back of the net in a 3-0 win over Wolcott on Nov. 8 and again during a 3-0 shutout of Watertown on Nov. 20. Goalie Lily Kenney was again perfect in goal during the tourney wins.
Austyn Howe- Newington (Football): Howe has posted some ridiculously impressive stat lines this season but last Friday (Nov. 13) may have been his best one yet. Howe had 123 scrimmage yards, hauled in two receiving touchdowns, and ran for another offensively, while also intercepting three passes and recovering a fumble defensively. He literally did all he could during Newington’s 43-35 loss to powerhouse Windsor.
Sadie Ruiz- Wethersfield (Field Hockey): Ruiz scored two goals last week as the field hockey team at WHS breezed through the first two rounds of the Class M tournament. The sophomore scored both goals as the Eagles eliminated Brookfield 2-0 in the opening round and then scored a third tourney goal as the team knocked out Easy Lyme in the quarterfinals round. Molly Bowers tallied the other goal in the quarterfinals victory.
Jack Polke- Xavier (Soccer): Polke scored the game-tying goal on a penalty kick in the 69th minute, sending the game into overtime, and then made the first of four PKs as Xavier outlasted Glastonbury 2-1 on PKs (4-2) in the second round of the Class LL tournament. The senior captain has been one of the main scoring threats for a Falcons team that, entering this week, has yet to lose this season.
Layla Solberg- Middletown (Diving): Solberg finished 11th overall at the Class L diving finals at Middletown High School on Nov. 10. The junior had an overall score of 336.15, besting 15 other divers at the competition.
