Athletes of the Week: Bobby Maimaron and Holly Davenport

Bobby Maimaron ’21
Football
Duxbury, Mass.

Bobby has done a tremendous job. He has shown great poise and has performed well in critical situations. [The Middlebury game] was a great win for our team. The players’ commitment and belief in each other was very evident Saturday. We continued to fight and make big plays when they were needed most.

-Head coach Mark Raymond

 

Maimaron connected with wide receiver Frank Stola ’21 for a 15-yard score as time expired to take football to a 27-26 upset of Middlebury on Saturday. He finished 21-of-29 for 195 yards and two touchdowns, adding 93 rushing yards and a touchdown on 15 carries. The rookie quarterback led an 80-yard touchdown drive in the final two minutes, earning NESCAC Offensive Player of the Week honors for the second straight week.

 

 

Holly Davenport ’21
Women’s golf
Palm City, Fla.

 

It was fantastic to see Holly finish as medalist in her first season. She worked hard this summer to prepare for the season, and now her work is paying off. Last weekend she played smart, kept the ball in play and made key putts. Holly has been a great addition this year, and the medalist finish will give her confidence for the spring.”

Head coach Tomas Adalsteinsson

 

Davenport won the individual title at the NYU Invitational last weekend, finishing with a two-day stroke total of 152.  Her 75 on Day One was her best collegiate round to date, and she bounced back from an early double-bogey on Day Two to putt for three birdies en route to a 77.  The first-year was instrumental in the NESCAC champion Ephs’ third team victory of the season.
