After trailing by 3 points at the half, the boys’ JV basketball team exploded in the second frame and came away with a 6-point win on the road against Dedham Country Day yesterday. Team captain Anurag Mujumdar powered the comeback with ten points after the break and stout defense in the paint. Anurag, who also captained the squad last winter as a seventh grader, is a much different player and leader this time around. Head coach Zach d’Arbeloff describes him as a game-changer this winter who can impact the game on both ends of the floor. Equally as important as his skills on the court has been his strong leadership on a team with eight underclassmen. “It’s been really fun to watch his development,” said Coach d’Arbeloff. “He’s a real leader out there.” With the win, the boys’ JV basketball team improved to 4-0 on the season and will square off against Fenn and Carroll next week.
- Olivia Garrity, Marco Frazzoli-Cassi, Kesariya Nallari-Jhala, and Nina Cohen-Perlmutter all shined on the volleyball court this week. With only one set of games, the highlight was a dramatic win by the Grey team in a tie-breaker over Gold.
- The IMBB team had a pair of games this week. Calum Dunbar’s last-second three-pointer just missed in the first showdown, which ended in a 2-point win for Gold. Kiernan Patel, Ben Fleming, and Leeul Miteku all scored for the victors.
- Both varsity basketball teams won their games against SSDS this week. Brendan Bandar finally got going offensively for the boys, while Ilana Brauner and Cassie Greiner had breakout games for the girls. Both teams will play twice next week.
- Roudi Youssef and Yara Ibrahim both tallied hoops during girls’ JV basketball’s commanding win over DCD this week. The team has looked unstoppable so far, with a 4-0 record and every player in the scorebook halfway through the season.
- Unfortunately, wrestling and fencing matches were canceled this week due to the early dismissal. Ellis Anderson and Kavi Kumar-Warikoo put in some good work on the mat. Emmett Mack and Josie Stevenson improved on the strip.
