Athlete Spotlight: Clementine ’18

By, Ellen O’Hare

Winsor sports are red hot! All of the fall teams have had wonderful seasons. I was able to sit down with one of our star Wildcats, Clementine P., Class VIII and take an inside look into her experience with Winsor sports.

Clementine rows for the Winsor Crew team in the fall and spring and plays as a center for the ice hockey team in the winter. She loves that, in rowing, “the work you put in directly leads to the results you get.” In other words, hard work pays off. One of Clemmie’s crew teammates says, “For the last few years that I have been on the crew team with Clemmie, she is always offering supportive advice and acting as a great leader.” Clemmie’s favorite memory from rowing is when the team won gold at the New England Interscholastic Rowing Association championship regatta during her sophomore year.

In ice hockey, Clementine loves the feel of the team and the way she gets to play with people of all ages. Her most memorable moment in her ice hockey career is during her sophomore year when Winsor beat Pingree (for the first time) with a score of 8-1. Incidentally, it was the then Winsor seniors’ last game.

Clementine is looking forward to enjoying a successful spring season, rowing in the NEIRA regatta, and continuing the sport in college. During the winter, she is looking forward to enjoying her last season playing ice hockey. Clementine is a fantastic athlete, and we wish her all the best during her last few seasons of Winsor Sports!
