SCC Athletes of the Month for NOVEMBER 2021, presented by j.roo’s of North Haven

The November SCC Female Athlete of the Month is Guilford field hockey midfielder Maddie Epke.

The 2021 SCC Field Hockey Player of Year, Maddie led the Grizzlies to the SCC and Class M state titles in November.  On November 3, she scored two goals to lead Guilford to a 3-0 victory over Branford in the SCC championship game – the team’s fourth straight league title.  In the Class M state tournament, she recorded 4 goals and 9 assists in four games, culminating with a 3-assist effort in a 4-0 state championship victory over Wethersfield on Nov. 20 – the team’s third consecutive state title.    For the season, Epke finished with 38 goals and 29 assists as the Grizzlies finished 22-1.  

Also an outstanding ice hockey and lacrosse player, Epke recently signed a national letter-of-intent to attend James Madison University to play lacrosse.

The November SCC Male Athlete of the Month is Xavier senior cross country standout Eamon Burke.


The 2021 SCC Boys Cross Country Runner of Year, Eamon led the Falcons to the Class L state title and a runner-up finish at the State Open on November 5.   Individually, Eamon finished sixth at the State Open, and then one week later, finished 13th (16:53) at the New England Championships in Thetford, Vt.   His 13th-place finish earned him All-New England accolades.

On November 27, Eamon participated in the Nike Cross Northeast Regional race at Bowdoin Park in Wappingers Falls, N.Y.   He finished second (16:16) in the race, and his performance would have qualified him for Nike National High School Championships (the Nike championship was unfortunately cancelled for 2021).

One of the team’s captains, Eamon is an outstanding student and was nominated for academic all-state with a current gpa of 3.38.
