Grant Raffel ‘17.5
Men’s golf
Palo Alto, Calif.

Grant has been playing solid golf all fall, and he is starting to peak at the right time with the NESCAC Championship coming up. He is also a fantastic team leader and always pushes and challenges his teammates, helping them become better golfers.

– Head coach Josh Hillman

 

Raffel shot a two-under 69 on Sunday at the Williams Fall Invitational. His two-day total of 143 placed him second individually, as the men finished second to Trinity in the team standings.

 

 

Libby Dolan ’19
Field hockey
Barrington, R.I.

 

“Libby is a scoring machine. She is incredibly deceptive with the ball and manages to beat defenders in the offensive circle.  While she is an offensive powerhouse, she is also a great teammate who will do anything to help the team.”

Head Coach Alix Barrale ’93

 

Dolan scored just six minutes into Saturday’s loss to Amherst. She added two goals, including the game-winner, on Sunday versus Bates. Her 10 goals this season make her the top scorer in the NESCAC.
