Athletics Update: Fencing Victorious Over Shady Hill

In a season marred by cancellations and uneven match-ups, the fencing team finally faced a full team on Thursday afternoon when they squared off against Shady Hill at the Boston Fencing Club. When it was all said and done, the Blue & Gold took 15 of 27 bouts and emerged with a narrow 15-12 victory.

Highlights of the meet included Zach Cash and Olivia Zhou’s solid foil wins, Asher Sutton’s timely sabre win, and Simon Wright and Simone Pattisall’s first interscholastic wins of their career. One of the most impressive performances of the afternoon, however, was turned in by seventh grader Joshua Flanagan who demonstrated strong technique and tremendous poise in a pair of epee wins. The fencing team will be back at it next week against the International School of Boston.

  • Matthieu Small and Nikos Axiotis both pinned their opponent during Belmont Day’s wrestling match against Belmont Hill on Thursday.
  • Girls’ varsity basketball fought back for a dramatic one-point win over DCD. Eliza Kuechle and Ruby Kokinos led the charge.
  • Olivia Dawson had a season-high 8 points and 11 rebounds during girls’ JV basketball’s big win over Carroll this week.
