The May Male Co-Athletes of the Month is Alex Rives and Jake Dulac, Alex is a member of the Men’s Varsity Baseball Team. Alex hit a huge .564 in the month including 22 hits and 21 runs scored. On the mound, he went 2-0 with wins against Holderness School and in the semi-finals against Tilton School.

Alex leads by example and loves playing the game every day. Jake Dulac is a member of the Men’s Varsity Lacrosse team. Although Jake has the green light to cross the midline into the attacking zone, this quiet leader does his best work on the defensive end. All season long, Jake consistently shut down opposing teams top offensive threats. Coach Simon states, “he is the best defenseman in our league”. He leads by example with his competitive nature and fierce defensive play. For their leadership and outstanding performances in May, Jake Dulac and Alex Rives were recognized by the New Hampton Athletic Department as the May Male Co-Athletes of the Month.
