Post-season highlights put SPS student-athletes in the spotlight

An incredible fall season for St. Paul’s athletics, highlighted by notable team and individual performances, was covered locally by the Concord MonitorFootball capped off a perfect 8-0 season with a win in the Ken Hollingsworth Bowl by a score of 16-6 over Pingree School. It was the team’s first bowl game appearance since 1989, which is also the date of their last unbeaten season. Sixth Former and tri-captain Marshall Mather summed up the key to his team’s success: “Looking back on previous seasons, that missing piece was trust. Everyone bought into the team this year, whether they only played one snap or never stepped off the field.”
Sixth Former Catherine Reynolds led the girls volleyball team to an undefeated regular season and the No. 1 seed in the New England Preparatory School Athletic Council (NEPSAC) Tournament. In the process, Reynolds became the first player in School history to surpass 1,000 career assists. She is also the career leader in games played and service aces and helped the Big Red compile a 58-19 overall record during her four years.
