Wrestling

This week the Beaver wrestling team had a pair of tri-meets against CHCH, PA, Concord Academy, and Marianapolis.  Senior captain Josh Berland continued his undefeated season in style with 3 pins and a technical fall (winning by a score of 15-0), keeping himself on pace to peak for the upcoming post-season. Also recording wins this week were freshmen Jacob Weil and Ben Snyder, as well as Dan McDonald and junior classmate Drew Cannistraro. Beaver’s small but focused team looks forward to the upcoming week, including matches against BB&N, Thayer, Middlesex, and their first tournament of the year in Cape Cod on Saturday. Keep supporting your boys in blue!

Squash

The Beaver Squash team played another Squashbusters team this past Monday. The match was lost 5-2, but Beaver won 6 of the 13 overall matches played. Each and every player has worked very hard this season, and it shows in their match play.

Clay Starr ’15 played a match against the Squashbusters #2 player that ended in Clay winning 3-2. Clay won the first two games 11-9, 11-9 and lost the 3rd and 4th games 10-12, 10-12. Clay battled through the final game despite being overly exhausted and ready to collapse. In the end, Clay walked away victorious with a well earned 12-10 win in the 5th game against a very tough opponent.

Gabe Belkind ’15 also played a tough 5 game match. Gabe lost the first two games but came back to win the 3rd and 4th games, only to be defeated 11-9 in the 5th game. Despite losing, Gabe performed very well on court. He has improved drastically in such a short amount of time this season.
