ATHLETES OF THE WEEK: Ava Palmo ’19 and Sydney Jones ’21

Ava Palmo ’19
Women’s crew
Austin, Texas
“Ava is the heart of her boat and of the team, really.  She commits to bringing her best to every practice and is a ferocious racer.  But beyond that, she is the consummate teammate who cares deeply for the sport and the lessons that it imparts.”
– Head coach Kate Maloney
 

Sydney Jones ’21
Women’s soccer
Boca Raton, Fla. “Sydney made a difficult finish look easy.  Her ability to score goals at important times combined with her consistent work rate off the ball to create opportunities for us on Saturday was a huge reason for the positive result versus Tufts.”
– Head coach Michelyne Pinard

Sam Goldenring ’20
Men’s Golf
FLORHAM PARK, N.J.
“Sam had a very nice summer of golf, and it has carried into the fall season here at Williams.  He has worked very hard at all aspects of his game, and it shows.  This past weekend at Middlebury, he simply outplayed the field, making good decisions and staying positive when some breaks did not go his way.”
– Head coach Josh Hillman

Andrew Schreibstein ’22
Football
Longmeadow, Mass. “I was very impressed with Andrew’s performance.  In his first collegiate game, he was exceptional.  It is very difficult to handle of the kicking and punting duties, and Andrew did it remarkably well.”
