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!
