Boys Varsity Track:
After an undefeated regular season, Boys Varsity Track finished the season strongly with an ISL championship and a solid showing at New England’s. Led by captains Chris Lewis (I), Connor James (I) and Bobby Gilmore (I), as well as record holders Jeff Brown (I) and Domenic Cozier (II), the team took down defending champions Thayer to earn the team’s first title in over 20 years. The relay team, comprised of Clay Desir (I), Mike Silva (III), Cozier, and Lewis, set a new record in the event, effectively wiping Mr. Heard off the board.
“I couldn’t be more proud of our performance as a whole this season,” writes James. “The ISL championship was not won by any one individual, but by a collaboration of hardworking and supportive teammates working together to achieve one goal.”
The future is bright with many strong junior and senior athletes as well as a great coaching staff. However, it is unlikely that next year’s squad will be able to match what has been dubbed “the greatest track team in school history, ” according to the team’s coaches.
Girls Varsity Tennis:
Girls Varsity Tennis has continued the dominance they displayed in last year’s New England Championship run, beating every team they have faced and not losing a single match against ISL competitors, leading them to their New England Prep School class A championship, the second one in two years. The team only had three returning players from last year—captain Maddie Dewire (II), Te Palandjian (III) and Semi Okolo (III)—but the team finished the 2013-2014 season with the prospect of strong incoming freshman players. The addition of so many new players had seemingly no effect on the girls, and they continued to wipe up every opponent they faced. The tennis team depended quite a bit on their manager, Izzi Emerson (II), to make sure the season ran smoothly, so they could focus on their tennis skills. Make sure to come out and support the girls in their last matches of the season against Nobles today!
