Favorite Class/Team/Club/Activity: The 2019-2020 boys varsity basketball team was not only my favorite team at SAS, but our playoff run was also the most memorable period of my entire 18 years on earth. With our three playoff wins pre-COVID-19, we set the record for most wins in a season (17) and became the first boys basketball team to reach the Final Four in the 91-year school history. This run was a culmination of all the work the seniors had put into the team since our freshman year going 7-12. We helped changed the culture of not only basketball at SAS, but athletics as a whole. We may be a "private boarding school," but we want it as bad as the rest of the state, and this team helped prove that for future St. Andreans.
What I miss the most Due to Virtual Term: What I am missing most right now being away from campus is the enjoyment and excitement of senior spring, the time where we can finally celebrate our years at SAS. I also miss my roommate Chefskii, but I am thrilled to be rooming with him next year in college to make up for this lost time.
Favorite SAS memory/tradition/place: Favorite places are the new/old gyms & dorm, specifically Hillier/Fleming. I’ve shot thousands of jump shots in these gyms and have created unbreakable bonds on the court and dorm. Being an RL on Fleming, it was my job to bring underclassmen together and do all I could to help create a safe, comfortable, and caring space for them to enjoy living. And I feel like I did my job—freshmen boys dorm was truly something special this fall/winter and I will most definitely miss those freshmen I had the pleasure of living with.
Three Words to describe SAS: Home, beautiful, transcultural.
