Aardvark Alumna Hits a Volleyball Milestone
OES alumni frequently make headlines after they've left our hallways, and the latest example came earlier this week when we heard that Lucy Stevens '14 achieved an impressive athletic milestone.
Lucy, a senior at Carleton College in Minnesota, had her 1,000th college volleyball career kill while playing in two matches on Saturday, September 2. (A "kill" in volleyball is a successful, legal, point-scoring play.) This makes her only the fourth player in Carleton volleyball history to reach the 1,000-kill mark, and the first to do so since 1992.
She had 29 total kills in the matches against the University of Wisconsin-River Falls and Valley City State University.
Well done to Lucy from the entire Aardvark community!

Our Upper School Debate team has had some stellar successes lately!
Last week young adult novelist Adam Silvera spoke to our Upper School community about everything from the craft of writing to explorations of identity.
Recently Ms. Duden's fifth-grade class clambered into canoes and set off to paddle around the wetlands . . . and then encountered something entirely unexpected.
What do you get when you add 10 Middle School Math Club members, the hours of a Saturday morning, and four different rounds of mathematical competitions? That would be the OES Math Meet!
