Athletes of the Week – November 16, 2017


Ali Gordon’s impact on the field may not garner the same attention as the leading goal scorers enjoys; however, this does not downplay the importance of her presence. The Ohio State Commit marked each team’s top player, was critical with her tough tackles in the center of the field, and consistently set up the attack for the Division II State Champion Dolphins. As the center of the field, Ali has been the rock for Varsity Field Hockey.



Andrew Jaycox was thrown into a situation no one could anticipate. Always ready for whatever is thrown his direction, Andrew was in goal for the biggest game of the season– the Division I state-finals. Andrew’s defining moment came on a counter from St. Christopher’s. With the game’s tying goal sure to find its way into the net, Andrew came sliding out confidently, knocking the ball just off frame, and preserving the first state title for the Dolphin soccer program.



Cape Henry’s first Division I Men’s Volleyball commit, Grayson Browning accumulated over 300 kills throughout the 2017-2018 season. In addition, Grayson earned a spot on the TCIS Invitational All-Tournament Team, and took home TCIS Invitational MVP honors. Grayson’s stellar leadership and immense talent led the Dolphins to a 17-3 record.



The freshman sensation took off running in her first year with the Cape Henry Cross Country program. Impressively, Logan earned the 5th spot on the Girls Cross Country record board. The freshman finished the season 7th in the TCIS finals, and 16th in the State finals.



Owen Richards’ onslaught on the competition continued throughout the 2017-2018 season. Owen earned TCIS Runner-Up honors in the TCIS finals, and earned a 6th place finish in the State finals. Owen will have eyes on the top spot in the TCIS and State next year as the Cross Country star enters his senior season.



The future is bright for a young Varsity Girls Tennis program. Anne Porter Hudgins finished strong in the TCIS tournament, earning more points than any other competitor in the TCIS tournament. Anne Porter’s impressive TCIS tournament effort earned her 3rd in the TCIS, and guided Cape Henry to a 5th place TCIS finish.



Accumulating over 80 digs in the last four matches of the season, Bayla consistently demonstrated the poise and maturity to lead a Cape Henry Girls Volleyball program. Bayla’s stellar defensive presence has been a staple for the Dolphin Girls Volleyball program, amassing over 250 digs throughout the 2017-2018 season.
