Upper School Athletes of the Week - Sept. 19

Rudy Brandl

Mike Romeo, Athletic Director, announced the Upper School Athletes of the Week at Monday’s division meeting. Congratulations to soccer player volleyball player Elyssa Ortega '26 and cross country runner Vineeth Reddy ’23.

Elyssa embodies the true spirit of what being a Wardlaw+Hartridge student-athlete is all about. Her contribution to the volleyball team was on display last week as she was asked to play different roles swinging back and forth between JV and Varsity. Elyssa’s effort and focus was always 100% on both levels of play. 

Vineeth chose to be a cross country runner way back in fifth grade. Now a senior, Vineeth was elected as a team captain by his running peers. This past Saturday at Oak Ridge Park, Vineeth lowered his career personal-best time by 45 seconds to 19:40, making him only the sixth member of the exclusive W+H “Sub-20 Club.”
