Talia Feinberg, Dance: The Dance Athlete of the Week is sophomore Talia Feinberg. Talia is an unstoppable force of positivity on the team; she is consistently on time and prepared to dance, even with a challenging class schedule and numerous other commitments. Outside of the Dance team, Talia spends her time volunteering as a tutor for students with learning differences and as a dance teacher for younger children in the community. Talia is a fabulous dancer, and we are so lucky to have her as part of our team!
Finn Berquist and Thomas Blum, Cross Country Skiing: When I think about who should be the Cross Country Skiing Athlete of the Week, it’s really two people who have consistently been my athletes of this season, as well as last season. They are the captains—Finn Berquist and Thomas Blum. They complement each other well. Finn is the best skier on the team and a leader on the snow, though Thomas nips at his heels. On the other hand, it’s Thomas who keeps the athletes organized and focused and thus very much a team. Therefore, together they form a bond and unity that makes me proud to call them my athletes of the week.—Coach Jeff Riklin
