Weekly Athletic Update – Upper School and Middle School (2/21/20)

This week was the final for our Winter contests. That means we must extend our thanks to all the coaches, parents and student athletes who sacrificed their time to make this such a successful season. We will have a 5 week break before contests begin again for the Spring. Please be on the lookout for an email regarding uniform return.

7th/8th Grade Boys and Girls Basketball: The programs finished off huge seasons with a doubleheader sweep of Brooklyn Heights Montessori School at the Athletic Center on Thursday. After four years of having two teams for Boys Basketball, I was extremely excited to have enough interest to create two teams for Girls Basketball for the first time. This year more Berkeley Carroll 7th and 8th graders played basketball than ever before. Playing, not watching, is the best way to experience athletics and thanks to the coaches for all their hard work.

JV Boys Basketball: The JV Boys Basketball Team capped an amazing season with a league championship last Friday night with a decisive victory over Friends Seminary. The team went undefeated in league play, capturing the regular season title, and with the two victories in the playoffs completed a season where they did not lose to a single league team and had an overall record of 17-2.

Varsity Boys Basketball: The Varsity Boys Basketball program qualified for the NYSAIS State Tournament, a mark only shared by 4 other schools in New York State. It is an honor we are very proud of. The team was chosen for an at-large bid based on their record and strength of schedule. The team defeated Brooklyn Friends School in the opening round game behind 27 points from Elijah B. '22 before falling in the quarterfinals to Friends Seminary.
