For the first time in program history, the girls’ lacrosse program will be fielding two teams this spring. Following a successful 7-2 campaign last spring, interest was high this year and 28 girls came out for the program. Despite the shaky weather to start the season, tryouts are off to a great start and will wrap up early next week. Program veterans Avery Schneider, Quincy Treisman, and Ilana Brauner have done a great job transmitting culture to the group of 13 sixth graders, and the entire program has been working on developing (and reviewing) the fundamentals of the sport. Unfortunately, the varsity team will enter the season shorthanded without the services of eighth grade standout Aria Goodpaster who’s dealing with an injury. Goodpaster was one of the team’s top offensive threats a year ago and was poised for a breakout final season before the setback. It will be a tall task, but someone will need to fill the void that Goodpaster will leave behind if the varsity squad hopes to repeat the success from a year ago.
- A trio of sixth graders (Vicente Aguerrevere, Zeke Fine, and Mylo Rosenfeld) joined the boys’ lacrosse program this spring and will be counted on for serious minutes on the undermanned squad that will field 14 athletes.
- Straight off the wrestling mat and onto the track, Quinn Clark, Alexander Meredith, and Ken MacDougall are looking forward to getting healthy and adding some toughness and grit to the track & field team this spring.
- The eight graders came out firing on the tennis courts this week. Nina Cohen-Perlmutter and Alden Largay are looking to make the jump up to varsity while Brendan Bandar and Marco Frazzoli Cassi look to compete for the top spots.
- Owen Huang gears up for his first interscholastic season of the year as a member of the ultimate program. He’s joined by eighth grade veterans Joshua Flanagan, Elise Goodman, Eike Kiecza, Daniel Peregudov, and Aleta Sandoski.
