Bridget Condie, the phenomenal freshman from MICDS, who leads the Rams in goals and total scoring this season, was nominated for the Patch MVP "Athlete of the Week" award, after scoring two goals and three assists in a pair of exciting victories over Edwardsville and Notre Dame de Sion.
Since then, Condie has added two more goals and two more assists, to raise her season totals to 14 goals and 11 assists -- the fourth-most goals and second-most assists in the Metro League conference this fall -- as MICDS has advanced to the Midwest Field Hockey Championship Tournament quarterfinals after defeating Rockwood Summit and Kirkwood this week.
This week, the Week 9 Ladue-Frontenac Patch MVP "Athlete of the Week" will lead the No. 5 Rams into a showdown against No. 4 Visitation, where the winner will earn a trip to the championship semifinals and a likely date with No. 1 ranked Cor Jesu.
Other MVP candidates this week were Matthew Hooper of Ladue football, Taylor Revling and Ellie Bisig of St. Joseph's tennis, Meghan Donovan of Villa Duchesne volleyball, and Chris Wetzel of John Burroughs soccer.
Here's just a little bit of what we found out about this week's MVP, Bridget Condit of MICDS field hockey:
Usually we ask upperclassmen their thoughts about college, but since you're just starting high school, we'd like to know, how have you enjoyed your first few months as a high schooler?

Comment on any special accomplishments this season so far.
The passes the team creates is definitely an accomplishment, but also our resilience and ability to play no matter the circumstance.

My favorite memory of our season has been every time the team has come back in a game when we were losing.
What is the favorite tune in your I-Pod? And why?
