Co-captain Sabrina Harden did not earn her spot at #1 on the Girls’ Varsity Squash ladder by accident. She earned it by playing all fall after school and attending the Egypt squash trip over Thanksgiving break. Sabrina has gone four wins and two losses this season and on average she gives up a mere four points to those who play her. If you have never watched a 3.5 US Squash ranked player, come and see how Sabrina dissects her opponents with length and drop shots. In practice, she leads by example during conditioning and footwork. She is humble as she plays with teammates in order to make them better. Sabrina is instrumental to Tabor’s success this year because she knows that “champions are made in practice” where her mindset transfers to hitting good strokes in her competitive matches.
Boys’ JV Squash: Henry Worden
Henry has worked his ways up the squash ladder over the past two years thanks to his internal drive and intensity. In the fall, he invested time and energy into improving his basic drives and honing his wrist position. His progress has been significant. He has earned the top spot on the ladder through hard work.
Girls’ Varsity Basketball: Nicole Gallagher
Great players don’t just play great, they elevate the effort and play of their teammates. Nicole does that for us. She practices at game speed every day and by doing so forces everyone to play to their potential all the time. During games she quarterbacks our press on defense and looks continually to create shots for her teammates on offense. She combines effort, skill, and determination at the highest level, and that is very rare. She has made herself into a scholarship athlete and is daily helping to do the same for her teammates.
On our first Saturday School Day of the new year, we will enjoy working with Dennis Febo, a guest speaker who will help us raise social consciousness through his talk and various small group activities following.
Audiences describe Dennis Febo as 'Genuine,' 'Engaging,' and 'Extraordinary.' "He delivered a powerful message in a very humble manner, and I think that was what I appreciated most," said a student who attended one of his workshops.
A native of Brooklyn, NY, Febo was raised in many different parts of the United States and Puerto Rico. Through experiences with the disparities of poverty, racism, and prejudice, Febo had an early goal to help people reach their true potential through education on social consciousness and culture.
Beginning in high school, Febo targeted youth in disadvantaged communities through art, music, and entertainment. Knowing youth internalize messages provided through the arts, he hoped to explore the social conditions in which students are a part, and how they could overcome them through unity and work.
Continuing this work in college through Lambda Sigma Upsilon Latino Fraternity, and after as he earned a Masters of Arts in Humanities at the University of Buffalo, Febo found that his speaking abilities were able to draw the attention of many, allowing him to organize on larger social levels as he discussed topics including race, ethnicity, the mind, identity, and social consciousness. Today, he does this work through his consulting group Guazabara Insights. http://www.guazabarainsights.com/
We look forward to spending a morning with Dennis Febo and learning from his insights!
