The Girls’ Tennis program earned wins at both the JV and Varsity levels, last week, against Bancroft. The Varsity win was capped with a hard earned win by Freshman Hayley Zukerberg ’16, who came back to win her second set in a tie breaker. Similarly, the JV win was capped with hard earned victories by Micaela Furman ’15 and Sophie Basseches ’16 who both played in their first competitive singles matches. The Varsity team’s record currently stands at 2-0 (1-0 in the league).
The Boys’ Varsity Lacrosse team evened their season record at 2-2 with a sound victory over league opponent Concord Academy on Friday. On a cold dreary day, the visiting Beaver team traveled to the beautiful new athletic complex in Concord and completely dominated the first half of the game, with a score of 12-0 at the end of 24 minutes of play. Sophomore goalie, Dan McDonald, and the Beaver defense led by Junior Captain, Sam Vidal, did a tremendous job stifling Concord’s offensive efforts. Beaver’s offense controlled time of possession with good ball movement, slow methodical offensive sets, and finding the back of the net. Junior midfielder, John Kalnins, led the way with 5 goals and 4 assists. Michael Gray and Nat Brown worked very well together at the attack position capitalizing on a combined 7 goals and 3 assists.
The second half allowed for some younger players to get some much needed playing experience and were able to ward off some relentless Concord offensive pressure. By the end of 48 minutes Beaver led by a score of 17-8 securing their second victory of this short season.
Beaver will take on Gann Academy Tuesday afternoon on Upper Field.
The Beaver Girls’ Softball team faced a tough Dana Hall team to start to their season, losing the home opener 29-3. Zoe Sarason ’13 had two strike outs and Arielle Silbersweig ’14 had two catches in center field. Clara Dinkin ’16 had a great single to right field scoring Emma Lynch ’14 of third.
