Athletics Update: A Pair of Wins for the Football Program this Week

On Tuesday afternoon, the junior varsity flag football team opened up their season with a commanding 28-14 win over Fessenden. Yesterday, the varsity team followed suit with a 32-21 win over Solomon Schechter Day School and improved to 2-0-1 on the season. Team captains Andrew Green and Gianni Squillante were responsible for all of the offense for the junior varsity team and provided a few highlight-reel plays in the process. Defensively, the JV squad relied on strong QB pressure from Yaseen Saeed and Tadhg O’Sullivan who were in the backfield most of the afternoon. The varsity team’s captains also had strong performances with Bernie Mattox leading the team in flag pulls and Liam Brodeur spinning multiple TDs, including a dime to Rami Flummerfelt who toe-tapped the sideline of the endzone. Speaking of Flummerfelt, Rami’s twin brother Kaden single-handedly shut down the opposition’s passing attack with three first-half interceptions and a pair of pass deflections. The football program will look to remain undefeated with games against Carroll and Fenn next week.

  • Alexander Meredith, Veronica Wang, and Brendan Bandar all knocked significant time off of their previous PRs during cross country’s dual meet loss to Pike this week.
  • Eliza Kuechle commanded the field and demonstrated strong leadership during field hockey’s hard-fought 1-0 loss to Shore this week. Audrey Chuang played solid D and moved well off the ball.
  • The girls’ soccer team came up just short (2-1) on the road against Pike. Nora O’Brien was active all game and banged one off the crossbar in the second frame. Emma Kass was solid in net.
  • Both the boys’ and junior varsity soccer teams were blanked at home this week by Pike and Shady Hill respectively. JV received strong goalie play from Lila Abruzzi and Wisdom Badgett was active up top.
