Athletes of the Week Nov. 20

November 20, 2020
Reagan Ciabattoni

Reagan has been so prolific and dominant on the hockey field over the last two weeks that it is impossible to keep her out of the Athletes of the Week lineup. She has been stepping over defenders and running around players in the midfield. Her slap shots and backhanders on corners have been lethal. Reagan had five goals in the 9-1 regular-season win over Indian River, then came back with two penalty strokes versus Milford. The goalie didn’t have to guess right or left, but rising shots luckily went past the goalie’s helmet. Reagan is a junior who has verbally committed to Duke University.

Nathan Horn

Nate is a sophomore, a late bloomer who has been planting runners this football season. “He comes out of Beacon. He played football but didn’t see the field much, but man, he has arrived with a vengeance,” said coach J.D. Maull. “He just plays better every game.” When asked for this bio, “How’s your size?” he said, “Somewhere between large and extra-large.” A 6-foot-2, 220-pound sophomore backer, he has left the large size way behind. Nate is a 3.0 GPA kid and just perhaps a next-level player. His emergence has resulted from his dedication to the weight room, according to his coaches. 

Ian Robertson

Ian is a 6-foot-7, 220-pound, left-handed forward for the Randolph Macon Yellowjackets basketball team. The Yellowjackets are rated No. 1 preseason in Men’s Division III basketball by the Basketball Times. Ian was an ODAC All-Academic team member as a sophomore after appearing in all 30 games with 15 starts. He was third on the team with 50 three-pointers and still has that Beacon Middle School sweet stroke. Last season, Ian had 17 points in an NCAA Tournament win over TCNJ. The tournament was canceled due to COVID in the round of 16. Ian is listed as a returning starter on the Randolph Macon hoops website. Younger brother Dane is a long stick middie/defender in the Cape lacrosse program. All sports in the ODAC Conference will begin play in January 2021, and will compete for conference and national titles. 

Kurtis Wells

”Kurt Wells has had an all-conference season,” said Cape football coach J.D. Maull. Kurtis had nine tackles and blocked a punt in the Vikings’ Nov. 14 home win over the Sussex Tech Ravens. “Kurtis has been flying around the ball all season. Our goal is to find Kurtis a college to go to next year for football,” Maull said. Kurt is a solid 3.0 GPA student and a senior who will be playing on some college defense next season. He is an athletic defender who played quarterback in middle school, but prefers defense.
