Sports Recap, Week of October 24

The Girls’ JV Soccer team won on Tuesday against The Center School by an impressive 11-0 score.  The players were in positions to which they weren’t all accustomed but they played amazingly, working on back passes and crosses at goal. Elaina Gibb-Buursma scored an impressive 5 goals in her first game back from an injury. Tess Marini-Rapoport scored her first 2 points of the season, with Corrine Laird, Ruby Chase, Celeste DiLeo, and Eliza Bigelow (her first too!) pitching in a goal apiece. The defense played extremely well and kept most of the action on the Center School’s half with Ruby Chase and Juliet Corwin playing well in goal. The girls practiced excellent sportsmanship and team spirit in their last JV game of the season.
The Boys JV Soccer team lost 9-2 to Four Rivers on Tuesday. Raymond Mossman scored the team’s two goals, while Alec Draxler had a great game as an aggressive striker. Nick Hallenbeck, Zander Frangie, Sam Rancourt and Tor Olsson were strong on defense, and Nick Forbes played an energetic game at midfield.

The hiking group embraced the cold weather on Tuesday to hike to the summit of Mt. Monadnock. They enjoyed snow flurries and views of Boston from the top.
