Athlete of the Week — Tamar Bulka, Girls Soccer

According to girls varsity soccer coach, Doug McCarthy, “Tamar has been the backbone of the girls soccer team early in the season. Tamar’s presence in the central midfield (along with fellow seniors Elizabeth Barry and Izi Epshtein) has had a significant impact in the team’s 4-1 start in the 2014 campaign. Her skill and physical strength make her a primary target for opponents to try and shut-down. Despite constant pressure from the opposition, Tamar is a gifted and unselfish playmaker who frequently springs teammates lose to create scoring opportunities for the Lions. Tamar led the DCL in assists in last season, and she’s well on her way to duplicating that feat in 2014.”  Congratulations, Tamar!
