Tiger grads honored for college play
COLCHESTER — Two St. Michael’s College senior athletes who are Middlebury Union High School alumni were named to the Northeast-10 Conference Weekly Honor Roll for the week ending on Sunday, March 23.
Men’s lacrosse player Cooper Quenneville, a Shoreham resident, made the league’s athletic honor roll for the third time in four weeks after posting four goals, three assists, six ground balls and an eight-for-16 showing on faceoffs as the Knights split two games.
The midfielder is tied for 13th in the NE-10 in ground balls (22) and faceoff wins (23) while standing 14th in faceoff winning percentage (56.1). With a team-high eight goals, he is just four goals shy of his career high.
Softball pitcher Lea Gipson, a Bridport resident, was honored after going 1-0 with a 2.33 earned run average in six relief appearances in of her team’s eight games last week. She allowed four earned runs in 12 innings and fanned five. In her longest outing, she allowed only two unearned runs in 5.1 innings at Pace University on Sunday to earn her first college victory.
