Congratulations to Bard College sophomore Mikala L’Hote 17, who was named to the Liberty League’s Fall All-Academic Team for women’s volleyball.
Mikala, an Environmental & Urban Studies major playing her second season with the Raptors, was one of five Bard players named to the team, which requires student-athletes to be sophomores or older and hold a minimum 3.30 Grade Point Average.
Overall, Mikala played in all 28 of the Raptors’ games, starting 24 of them, and she played in all of the team’s 94 sets. She led the team in blocks, with 24, and her 164.5 points and 135 kills were third on the team. Mikala also added 42 digs, 15 aces, and 6 assists on the season, recording a career-high 12 kills on October 16 against Mount St. Mary.
Mikala, who was twice named a league all-star during her four years as a starting setter/outside hitter for the MHS varsity volleyball team, is one of four Miss Hall’s Hurricanes currently playing athletics in college —
• Diamond Best ’17 recently wrapped up her second season on the Eastern Nazarene College women’s soccer team. A sophomore midfielder/forward for the Lions, Diamond played in 12 games, starting 10 of them, and recorded 9 goals and 6 assists. A three-sport varsity athlete while at MHS, Diamond excelled in soccer, basketball, and lacrosse, serving as captain of the soccer and lacrosse teams, and was named a league all-star for the 2015 and 2016 soccer seasons.
• Grace Guachione ’17, a sophomore at St. Anselm College, is starting her second year as a guard on the women’s basketball team. Last season, Grace played in all 29 of the Hawks’ games, averaging 4.5 points per game. She scored a season-best 14 points on January 9 against Southern Connecticut State and made at least one three-point basket in 13 straight games last season. The MHS all-time leading scorer with 1,929, Grace was named to four consecutive league all-star teams, and led the Hurricanes to three straight appearances in the NEPSAC Class C postseason tournament.
• Indiana Ravenhill ’16, a junior at Agnes Scott College, recently completed her third season on the women’s soccer team. A defender, Indy played in 17 games, starting 16 of them. Overall, she has started in 51 of 53 games in her career on the Agnes Scott squad. Indy was also a three-sport athlete at MHS, playing four seasons each of varsity soccer, basketball, and lacrosse, and was named a lacrosse league all-star after her junior season.
Well done, Hurricanes!
