Athletics Update: JV Soccer Finds Bright Spots in Defeat

The junior varsity soccer team squared off against Cambridge Friends this week, and despite walking away on the wrong side of the score, head coach Vaniecia Skinner saw signs of improvement from her squad. Performances of note included co-captain Evan Griffith-Ebrahimi’s tremendous hustle all game and their great clears from the defensive side of the field. Eleanor Stine also shined for the Blue & Gold with strong positioning, some aggressive challenges, and lots of support for her teammates. With their overall play trending in the right direction, the JV soccer team will look to get their first win of the season on the road at DCD next week.

  • The JV football team remained undefeated by doubling up Shady Hill, 24-12, this week. Highlights included Ellis Anderson’s TD pass to Andrew Green and Kavi Kumar-Warikoo’s toe-tap catch on a two-point try. Zach Cash also played some solid D for the victors.
  • Classmates Quinn Clark, Rhys Kaplan, and Luke Brenneman had a great week of practice for boys’ soccer. The team has been busy preparing for three games next week, including a showdown against Meadowbrook at Friday Night Lights on October 29.
  • A trio of sixth grade athletes ran well on a challenging and hilly course during cross country’s away meet at Meadowbrook. For Ariel Duan, Simon Wright, and Jovana Zivanovic it wasn’t just about their times, but also they’re gritty approach and positive attitude.
