Athletics: Senior Awards

The Class of 2014 left a lasting impact on Proctor’s athletic program during their four years donning green and white. Seniors have been a part of league championships, been named All-Americans, Academic All-Americans, and have helped continue the long tradition of athletic excellence at Proctor.

Ten student-athletes were recognized by coaches for their outstanding contribution to Proctor athletics at Friday night’s Senior Dinner and Saturday’s Commencement exercises. Congratulations to the entire Class of 2014 and thank you for your dedication to Proctor!

CHARLES A JONES OUTSTANDING ATHLETE AWARD is awarded to the most outstanding male and female athlete in the graduating class.

Katherine Pattison (Hanover, NH) has been a three-sport standout athlete on the field hockey, girls’ hockey and girls’ lacrosse teams during her time at Proctor. A quiet, yet intense leader, Kate led the field hockey team to a NEPSAC tournament berth during her senior year and sparked the girls’ lacrosse team to a solid Lakes Region tournament semi-final appearance. Kate will play both field hockey and lacrosse at Williams College next fall.

Samuel Barrett (Andover, NH) was the starting quarterback for the varsity football team and starting shortstop/middle infielder for the varsity baseball team. As a starting quarterback, Sam had a 14-2 record during his junior and senior years, while also leading the 2012 team to an undefeated regular season and NEPSAC Bowl appearance. Despite two devastating injuries to his shoulder and knee during his freshman and junior seasons, Sam blossomed into a quiet leader on the football field and the baseball diamond, providing his teams with an uncommon grace. Sam will play football at RPI next year.

SPENCER WRIGHT TEAM PLAYER AWARD is awarded to a graduating male and female athlete who demonstrate selflessness; display enthusiasm for team, fair play and sportsmanship; and recognize the talent and determination of teammates all while demonstrating qualities of leadership.

Baird Davis (Wilmington, DE) has been a mainstay in the backfield of both the varsity field hockey and girls’ lacrosse programs during her three years at Proctor. Never one to show up on the stat sheet, Baird is described by her coaches as the backbone of the defense in both sports. Her intensity on the field was balanced by her knack for playing hard without earning penalties, quietly dictating the flow of the game while inspiring those around her to compete with class. Baird will play field hockey at Sewanee University next year.

Cortland Begor (Wilton, CT) has been a standout skier and lacrosse player since his freshman year at Proctor. His dedication to both sports and ability to compete at a high level commands respect from his peers, while his personality allows him to connect with every player on the roster. Cortland was recognized by US Lacrosse as an Academic All-American this spring and will attend Dartmouth College next year.

DOC HOWARD SPORTSMANSHIP AWARD is awarded to a graduating male and female who value the ethos of the game above all else during competition through outstanding sportsmanship on and off the field.

Emily Morison (Andover, NH) has been a standout cross country runner and Nordic skier during her four years at Proctor. She consistently finished as one of the top female racers in the Lakes Region and traveled to ski the Birkebeiner ski marathon in Norway last winter. Her contributions to the Proctor community extend well beyond the racecourse through her involvement in student clubs. Emi will be attending Macalaster College next year. 

Sawyer Meegan (Newbury, NH) arrived at Proctor as a freshman and made an immediate impact on the boys’ varsity soccer team and Nordic ski teams. Sawyer played nearly every minute of every game for coach Ian Hamlet and the boys’ soccer team, gaining a reputation around the Lakes Region as a fierce competitor who played incredibly fair. On the Nordic team, Sawyer emerged into a leader who trained and raced hard each and every time he hit the snow. He inspired others to love the sports he loved. Sawyer will take a Gap year next year before pursuing higher education.

VARSITY AWARD is presented to a graduating male and female in recognition of significant contributions to two or more varsity sports for two or more years.

Meaghan Sheehy (Wilmot, NH) leaves Proctor as the all-time leading scorer for girls’ lacrosse with 262 career goals. Her impact on both the girls’ lacrosse and soccer teams has been significant. Meaghan will play lacrosse at St. Anselm’s College next year.

Jonathan Goodnow (Wilmot, NH) has been an integral part of the boys’ varsity soccer team, snowboard competition team, and boys’ varsity lacrosse teams during his four years at Proctor. Earning ten varsity letters during his career, Jonathan will continue his lacrosse career at Connecticut College next year.

Julia Sargent (New London, NH) has been an impact athlete on the girls’ varsity soccer, girls’ varsity lacrosse and alpine ski teams during her four years at Proctor. As a solid midfielder in both soccer and lacrosse, Julia’s presence on the field may go unnoticed by the casual observer, but to her coaches, her presence has been invaluable and will be sorely missed as she heads to California Polytechnic State University next year.

Joel Villa (Bronx, NY) joined Proctor’s varsity basketball team as a sophomore and made an immediate impact with his speed, intensity, and ability to score the ball. As a junior and senior, Joel played cornerback on the varsity football team, developing into a very solid defender during his senior season. Joel will play basketball at Endicott College next year.
