The swimming and diving team, girls varsity basketball team, and girls varsity squash team enjoyed record-breaking winter seasons!
Boys Varsity Basketball played their final game of the season against Loomis Chaffee, losing in a close game, 60-57. The game was the final home game of the season, so it was the team’s Senior day. Banners were hung for each of the seniors, and there were special team announcements to start the game. A moment was reserved for the injured Brandon McCreesh ’23, with him dribbling the ball for 11 seconds in honor of his jersey number being 11. With that done, the first half would commence.
