Alumni Athletics Roundup

 

With the fall season ending for many collegiate teams and the winter season kicking off, we wanted to recognize several of our alumni who are making headlines for their respective college programs.

Liana Hinds ’12 saw time in two international women's soccer friendlies against Panama on October 21 and October 25. Hinds is a member of the Trinidad and Tobago national squad. The friendlies served as a warmup before the CONCACAF Women’s Championships, which take place in February. When she is not playing for her country, Hinds plays professional soccer in Sweden.

Will Bellamy ’17 leads the Union College football team into its final game of the season after throwing for 1,672 yards and 18 touchdowns. His passing percentage is one of the best in the country, at 58.74 percent, and he is averaging 185.78 passing yards per game.

Maddie Giordano ’17 has gotten off to a strong start in her senior year on the University of Maine women’s ice hockey team. She has played in every game for the Black Bears so far and is averaging just over a shot per game. She currently has two goals and an assist on the year.

Michael Suski ’19 finished his junior campaign with the Boston College men’s soccer team leading the way in goals, assists, and points. Suski finished the year with six goals and three assists for 15 total points on the year.

Jess Schryver ’19 is tied for third in points on the sixth-ranked Quinnipiac University women’s ice hockey team. She has 10 assists so far in her junior campaign and has an impressive +10 +/- ranking. The Bobcats are one of the few teams in the country without a regulation loss, standing at 10-0-2 on the year so far.

Katie Begley ’19 and the rest of the second-ranked University of Michigan field hockey team lost only their fourth game of the season in the Big 10 championship game last weekend. For their NCAA first round matchup on Friday, November 12, they will host the winner of a play-in game between University of Maine and Miami Ohio University. Begley has played in two games so far for the Wolverines.

Jenna Donahue ’20 recorded her first career goal for the Dartmouth College women’s ice hockey team on November 6 against St. Lawrence University, and tacked on an assist earlier in the year against Cornell. Donahue is joined by Loomis Chaffee teammates Georgia Kraus ’19 and Caroline Appleyard ’21, who also have played in every game this year.

Kyle Chauvette ’21 was named the Week 6 Goalie of the Week in the United States Hockey League. Chauvette, who is headed to the College of the Holy Cross, posted two wins, a 1.5 goals-against average, and a .940 save percentage during the weeklong stretch. He is one of the top-ranked goaltenders in the league, with a 2.75 goals-against average through nine games, which rankes second in the league in games played.  

Jamis Fite ’20 and the rest of the University of Michigan men’s soccer team are headed to the Big 10 championship game on Wednesday, November 10, against Penn State. Fite is a sophomore goaltender on the team.

Sarah Guest ’20 played a major role in helping the Middlebury women’s soccer team capture the New England Small College Athletic Conference championship last weekend. She was brought in exclusively for penalty kicks, a situation with extra pressure, and converted her second-round penalty kick against Wesleyan in the championship match, leading to the Panthers’ eventual victory and NESCAC title.

Alex Darrah ’21 and her Lafayette College women’s field hockey teammates lost a heartbreaker in the championship game of the Patriot League tournament last weekend. Darrah has played in every game this year and recorded 14 shots in her freshman campaign.
