Weekly Athletic Update – Upper School and Middle School (12/13/19)

We are rapidly approaching the holiday break with almost all of our athletic teams competing. Swimmers from 5th-12th grade have been competing in the pool. Basketball players from 7th- 12th grade have been up and down the hardcourt. After the break, 5th and 6th grade ballers will have their first games.

Varsity Swimming: The Varsity Swim Team lapped Dwight this week in the Athletic Center pool. There were strong swims on both the boys and girls sides for race and point victories. Alex R. '22 set PR's in the 50 Free and 100 Free. The team has one last meet next week against Grace Church before going on break.

7/8 Girls Basketball: The girls defeated Friends Seminary in their first game of the year on Wednesday in the Lincoln Place Gym, 30-7. Taylor S. '25 scored 16 points and Margo S. '24 scored 12 points. Zoey S. '25 rounded out the scoring.

7/8 Boys Basketball: The boys defeated Friends Seminary in their first game of the year on Wednesday in the Lincoln Place Gym, 32-27. Trent W. '24 scored 10 points, Nick H. '24 scored 8 points, and Ozzie W. '24 had 6 points.

JV Girls Basketball: After winning their first contest of the year in a non-league match up, the girls dropped their first league match this week at Sacred Heart. The team looks to rebound on Monday against Hewitt (game played at Trevor Day) before breaking for the holiday.

JV Boys Basketball: The boys competed in two tough non-league match-ups in the past week, dropping close games to Trinity and Collegiate. Those contests seemed to prepare them when they got back into league action as the team routed Dwight at the Athletic Center on Wednesday to move to 2-0 in league play. Everyone chipped in and played hard all three games. Jonatan P. '22 had a breakout game against Collegiate, at one point hitting 3 threes in a row.

Varsity Girls Basketball: Varsity Girls contended with two city powerhouses this week, dropping two tough games to Poly Prep and Sacred Heart. The team looks to rebound next week in the Brearley Holiday Classic. A match up with Nightingale on Tuesday opens the tournament and then either a 4:00pm consolation game or 5:00pm championship game on Wednesday.

Varsity Boys Basketball: Varsity Boys opened this period with a non-league road victory over Trinity. Johnny K. '21 led the way with 17 points and Elijah B. '22 added 11. The team dropped its next two games in heartbreaking fashion. A back and forth game on the road at Collegiate ended in a loss. Alex J. '21 had 18 points and Elijah B. '22 had 11 again. This split of tough non-league games had the team prepared for a huge home game against Dwight. The game was back and forth in the first half with neither team able to open up more than a 3 point lead. Evan W. '22 had 18 points in the first had Johnny K. '21 had 9 points. Unfortunately, both boys suffered injuries that kept them out most of the 2nd half. A 4 point BC lead disappeared and the team lost a heartbreaker. They look to rebound Friday at Friends Seminary before a slate of challenging games next week at Packer, at home versus Fieldston, and then against Dalton in the first round of the Rye Country Day Holiday tournament on Friday at Rye.
