Athletics Update: Elias and Kaplan Net Game Winners for Boys’ JV
The boys’ JV basketball team had a flair for the dramatic this week with a pair of one-point wins at home against Shady Hill and Dedham Country Day. In back-to-back games, the Blue & Gold trailed by one point with under 30 seconds to play before receiving game-winning shots from Nebiyou Elias and Rhys Kaplan. It wasn’t all about the final bucket, however. Seventh grade classmates Petros Samuel and Ezra Wolfson were spark plugs in both games, providing energy, hustle, and grit on the defensive and offensive sides of the ball. With the wins, the boys’ JV team improved to 2-1 on the season and will look to keep things rolling next week against Fenn and Carroll.
- The girls’ varsity basketball team improved to 4-1 on the season with commanding wins over SSDS and Rashi. Team captains Ruby Kokinos and Eliza Kuechle were steady on both ends of the court for the victors.
- Braiden Dargon and Andrew Green paced the boys’ varsity team in a pair of hard-fought losses to SSDS and Rashi this week. The duo combined for 75% of the team’s offensive output in both games.
- Annika Vital showed great hustle for girls’ JV basketball this week. The team split their two games with Alex Kadnar dropping 20 in a big win over Shady Hill and Olivia Dawson controlling the boards in a loss to DCD.
