Athletics Update: Ultimate Program Unites

With a slight drop in numbers and only 18 athletes playing ultimate this spring, the program has combined forces for practices. Despite splitting into two separate nine-person squads for game days, head coach Zach d’Arbeloff wanted to unite the program for practice to promote a “one-program” feel and to maximize the opportunities for larger drills, skill stations, and scrimmages. Early returns on the structure have been positive as the varsity team gears up for their first game next week. Led by co-captain Quinn McCaffrey the varsity squad will host Shady Hill next Thursday, April 7 on Claflin Field. Accompanying Quinn on the pitch will be seventh grade classmates Braiden Dargon and Eike Kiecza who will both need big performances if the Blue & Gold are going to be competitive.

  • Calder Wilmot and Lucy Targum were elected the first-ever captains of the mountain biking team. With the arrival of some dry weather, the team was shredding the trails all week.
  • A trio of seventh grade classmates are off to a great start for the JV tennis team. Nina Cohen-Perlmutter, Natalie Jean, and Alden Largay have all shown marked improvement thus far.
  • Track & Field will kick off the interscholastic season next Tuesday, April 5 at home against Shady Hill. There are high expectations for Sam Amaratunga, Matthieu Small, and Asher Sutton.
  • Sixth grade rookies Andrew Green, William Li. and Jaden Park have been quick studies during boys’ lacrosse practice and will be counted on for significant minutes this spring.
  • Despite being relatively new to the sport, Audrey Chuang, Maddie Cutie, Yara Ibrahim, and Lydia Scharer have been working hard to improve their skills for the girls’ lacrosse team.
