Athletics Update: Boys’ Varsity Basketball Finishes 8-2

Coach Tzelnic took the helm of the boys’ varsity basketball team three years ago. That team started a pair of sixth graders, lost Friday Night Hoops by 20 points, and finished their season with a 2-6 record. Fast forward to the present, and those same sixth graders, now eighth grade captains Rami Flummerfelt and Andrew Green, just put together one of the most impressive back-to-back seasons in program history, finishing with a combined record of 15-5 and a pair of lopsided Friday Night Hoops victories during a two-year span. Green finishes his career as one of the most prolific scorers in school history, topping the 30 point threshold a handful of times in his final season. Flummerfelt has been a steady presence under the basket and provided the muscle to complement Green’s skill. Under the guidance of Coach Tzelnic, the talented duo has turned the program around and created a culture of excellence for boys’ varsity basketball. Needless to say, their shoes will be tough to fill.

  • Congratulations to the athletes who pioneered our badminton/squash and climbing/hiking teams. Both programs enjoyed successful inaugural seasons and will surely be back next year.
  • The girls’ varsity basketball team bids farewell to eighth graders Clem Cradick, Roudi Youssef, Jovana Zivanovic and co-captains Liv Dawson and Annika Vittal. The group led the team to a 7-2 record this season.
  • The JV basketball teams put together a pair of successful seasons thanks to strong leadership from team captains Kalkidan Shiferaw, Samantha Cuming, Mylo Rosenfeld, and Kiernan Patel.
  • Seventh graders Jack Ward and Maraki Shiferaw brought a sense of purpose and commitment to the intramural basketball team this winter. They were joined by classmates Makenzie Ekechukwu and Leeul Miteku.
  • The fencing program completed its first season as a multi-team unit, offering both JV and varsity programs. Varsity finished the season undefeated behind tri-captains Carter Bradshaw, Anna Bibler, and Zach Cash.
  • Co-captains Quinn Clark and Alexander Meredith set the tone for the wrestling team this winter, leading the squad to a winning record and setting themselves up for a successful showing at the NE Championships.
