Have you read Lukas Weese’s ’14 interviews with former CDS students and hockey players Jonah De Simone ’20 and Victor Mete ’16 yet?
The sports fanatic and journalist recently caught up with both players for his articles at The Last Word on Sports. In each interview, Lukas asked both athletes how The Country Day School helped them develop into the players they are today.
“Going to CDS was a huge part of my life. The relationships I have built there are for life,” says De Simone. “Every time I go back, I make sure to say hi to the staff. They built my confidence to pursue my dream of hockey. I am truly thankful for that.”Jonah De Simone
“CDS helped me prepare for a busy schedule and to achieve the balance between academics and hockey.”Jonah De Simone
“Being at the school for nine years, seeing how the faculty and students treat me when I go back and visit means a lot.”Victor Mete
“I was a different case, knowing that I wasn’t gearing up for university. But the people at CDS did a great job teaching me what to expect for the future.Victor Mete
