Like most everyone at a prep school, over the spring break, I got a load of emails.
However, there remain a couple of notes I’ve meant to highlight ever since everyone returned to campus. This one — from coach/Spanish teacher Donna Mastrangelo — excitedly listed the number of LA student-athletes whose names appear on the winter season All-NEPSAC list:
Nicolette Arnold ’19, Girls’ Basketball
Ashley Evans ’20, Girls’ Basketball
*Corinne McCool ’18, Girls’ Hockey
Joey Luchetti ’18, Boys’ Basketball
*Martin Mann ’18, Boys’ Basketball
Neil Shea ’18, Boys’ Hockey
“Nicolette Arnold and Ashley Evans both made All-Nepsac, which is an extraordinary accomplishment since only 10 players are selected within New England,” said the girls’ basketball’s guru, brimming with pride for the girls and the team. “I was hoping for Nikki, but getting Ashley, as well, is quite remarkable for LA.”
The veteran coach also extended her congratulations to all the students and programs on the list (including NEPSAC champion boys’ hockey), adding, “Huge recognition [for boys’ basketball, playing at] AA, with Joey Luchetti getting All-NEPSAC and Martin Mann receiving Honorable Mention.
“Cool stuff and recognition for our school, especially as we head into revisit days!”
We couldn’t agree more, coach! Mr. Bishop
