Student Athlete of the Month: Somers’ Donovan

Adam’s accolades on the field and in the gym include being selected as the NCCC pitcher of the week last May. He has played varsity basketball for four years and varsity baseball for three, and also boasts a 9.3 GPA.

How Adam prepares for a game: Listening to music

Why Adam is excited for the winter season: We have a great group of guys

and we have very good chemistry. We’re going to make teams work on every possession.

Adam’s most memorable moment in a Spartan uniform: Last season’s win at Canton in double overtime. With two seconds left, Nick Elia received a full court pass from Brendan Coverdill and he made the lay-up to force overtime. Just being a key part of that game was a great experience.

What Adam will miss most about being a Spartan: Our home games against Stafford. The student section is packed and it’s the loudest game of the season.

The toughest challenge Adam has overcome: Coming in relief to close out a tournament game vs. Wamogo last season and walking the first three guys of the inning, then giving up a grand slam to tie the game. After that, I retired the next 6 guys I faced and we won in the bottom of the eighth to advance.

Adam’s favorite pro athlete: Kobe Bryant.

Kaley’s college plans: After high school I plan on attending a four year college to study psychology, and I plan on playing soccer while in college.
