Humans of Northwood: Rachel Rosner ’20

My name is Rachel Rosner. I’m a junior and a day student. I’m originally from Carthage, NY, but I moved up to Lake Placid three years ago when I first came to Northwood. I repeated ninth grade at Northwood, but I think taking the extra year has really helped me prepare not only for college but also for the real world and life in general. It has also shaped me in a couple ways. Since Northwood is such a small community, I feel like everyone here is one big family. People have really encouraged me to come out of my shell, be more open, and express my beliefs.

I do a conglomerate of sports here. I rock climb, rec ski, and I actually started the equestrian team here at Northwood after two years of petitioning and driving my points home. The classes I’m taking this year are Honors Calculus, Honors Physics, AP Environmental Science, AP English Language, and Spanish IV/V. Everything is going really well so far, and I’m super excited to see what happens.

The first game, from the start, started with Niagara in control as they scored within the first minute of the game taking the lead 1-0. Just a couple minutes later Niagara put another one on the board pushing the score to 2-0. In the second period, the Huskies started to get opportunities as Margot Rouquette ‘20 (Defense) scored off a shot from the point making the score 2-1. Niagara wasn’t going to hold back as they added another two to the score controlling the game at a score of 4-1. In the third, Niagara had added another four to take the win 8-1.

The second game of the weekend proved to be a better game for the Huskies as they held with the Eagles without many scoring chances.

With this weekend’s game, the Huskies move to 1-1-1 on the season. Up next for the Huskies is a two-game series at home against Trinity. Follow the Girls’ Hockey Team on Facebook and Twitter for live play-by-play updates year round.
