The Athletic Department is thrilled to share the highlights of the 2012-2013 winter season. We are proud of all of our athletes’ hard work. That effort translated into many success on the courts, mats, ice and pistes.
The Girls Varsity Basketball capped off an undefeated season by beating KUA 52-33 to win the NEPSAC Class C Championship. Their 25-0 record included winning the regular season EIL title and the EIL Tournament.
To get to the NEPSAC Championship, the #1 seed beat talented Stoneleigh-Burnham and Ethel Walker teams. In addition, Kaila Duarte ’13, Jr. Stephanie Soto-Rivera ’14 and Ciara Dillon ’15 have all been chosen as NEPSAC Class C All-Stars.
“I am thrilled to have three of our athletes recognized for their hard work and dedication all season.” said coach Sherry Levin. “Their individual skill and unselfish play has been a driving force in the team’s overall success. In addition, I am proud to say that both the Boys’ and the Girls’ Varsity Basketball teams have completed undefeated regular seasons in the EIL to capture the EIL Banner. This marks the boys fourth consecutive title and the girls second consecutive title.”
The Boys Varsity Basketball team completed the regular season with an overall record of 20-4. They captured their fourth consecutive EIL Title with a 13-0 record. Unfortunately they fell to Brooks School in the NEPSAC Class B Quarterfinal game.
The Fencing season culminated in the 2013 Fencing State Tournament at Beaver on February 24. Beaver’s Cam Mayer ’15 was named State Champion for the second year in the Men’s Foil – A.
