The varsity ultimate team returns eight players from last year’s squad including five eighth graders. Giddy Borisy, Luke Brenneman, Zach Cash, Theo Kelman, and Jaden Park are all back for the second and final season on the pitch. The team will look to improve on their 4-5 record from a year ago and will rely heavily on their experience to do so. Coaches Zach d’Arbeloff and Kathy Jo Solomon feel like the team is off to a good start and are eager for their first game, which is still two weeks away on Thursday, April 4.

  • Aman Singleton, James Shields, and Sam Doyle have been quick studies on the boys’ lacrosse team and will be counted on for some minutes on the attack this season.
  • Classmates Mame Gensler, Sylvie Fry, and Fatoumatah Bah are new to girls’ lacrosse, but the sixth grade trio has brought great energy to the junior varsity team this spring.
  • Junior varsity tennis fields one of the deepest teams in program history with 13 athletes, including 3 sixth graders; Nuria Kumar-Warikoo, Henry Mallet, and Colby Schneider.
  • The track & field team welcomes six sixth graders to the program. Christine Deng, Frankie Dowers, Pippa Ellner, Violet Hancock, Colin Parry, and Lee Piechota are all running strong.
  • Eleanor Stine has set a great tone for the JV ultimate team so far and will be counted on for her leadership this season. Newcomers Annika Cash and Noah Yang are off to great starts.
