Congratulations to Seniors Davis Miller and Kate Kiesow for their selections as February Athletes of the Month for the Willow Glen Rams!
Davis Miller started off strong, pitching a complete game no-hitter in the opener for the Rams. In 18.1 innings of pitching work, he has struck out 15 while not surrendering a single earned run. Miller has been equally impressive at the plate, batting .435, driving in 8 runs, and scoring 8 of his own. He has been an instrumental part of the Rams 7-2 record to begin the season.
Kate Kiesow has shown that the Willow Glen Lacrosse team is for real this season. The Senior Captain has done a little of everything to start the season. She has netted 20 goals, while dishing out 18 assists. To add, she has won 18 draw controls, caused a turnover and has recovered 7 ground balls. Kiesow’s knowledge and leadership has led the way to an early 6-1 record for the Rams.
