At St. Paul’s, athletics are much more than an extracurricular activity; they are an extension of the classroom, providing opportunities for students to set goals, learn new skills, and gain exposure to the community of a team.
Students are encouraged to try out for sports in which they are competitive, but the vast athletic offerings at St. Paul’s create opportunities to compete at both the interscholastic and club levels, depending on the skill and interest of the individual athlete. The structure of the varsity and junior varsity levels allows students to progress through the program while learning new skills and gaining experience. The club sports system provides healthy competition and camaraderie at the intramural level.
Interscholastic teams meet four days a week for afternoon practices, while competition days are primarily reserved for Wednesdays and Saturdays. St. Paul’s is a member of the Six Schools League. The School prides itself on its work ethic and sportsmanship while striving for athletic excellence.

Caroline Taggart ’21 (Girls JV Squash): Caroline has been a strong competitive force on the JV girls squash team this season, inspiring her teammates to play hard while maintaining a positive attitude.  During her match on Wednesday, Caroline was down 2 games to her Winsor opponent.  She acted on the advice of those who coached her between games and went on to win the next 3 games, using her strength, stamina, skills, and sheer determination to power through to a 3-2 win.  
Will Shiber '21 and Will Thayer '21 (Wrestling): Both W. Shiber (195 lbs) and W. Thayer (220 lbs) held seed  and won matches in their divisions at the New England Wrestling Championships and both qualified for the National Prep Tournament with their 5th place finishes.
Cal Schrupp ’19 (Nordic) Cal successfully defended his Lakes Region title by going undefeated for the second year in a row. He was seriously pushed by skiers from Holderness and Dublin schools every Wednesday afternoon and somehow, he managed to come out on top time after time.  Impressive job Cal.
Adia Burrows ‘19 (GV Basketball): Dia has been dominating the offensive end for the Pelicans this season.  In the just the last 4 games she has averaged 15.5 points and 10 boards.  She has also been an anchor on the defensive end.  Her enthusiasm and effort on both ends of the court are contagious.  Adia has proven to be a leader both on and on the court.  In addition to helping her club beat Beaver Country Day yesterday, Adia scored her 1000th point as Pelican.  Awesome accomplishment Adia!

The entire boys’ varsity basketball team: 
for sportsmanship, grit, and game-saving clutch plays by multiple players to win in triple overtime against Deerfield on Friday night.
Possibly more important than the teams’ victory is that they helped raise more $2,035 for the American Cancer Society by breaking the season record with sixteen 3-point buckets.
A well-deserved shout out to Sydney Bednar, Bridget Babcock and Liv Hughes for organizing the 3-point challenge!
