In this article, you will find a collection of game summaries from our various athletic programs, as posted by the coaches, captains, and managers of those teams. Thanks again to all our coaches, athletes, and managers for their hard work on and off the field:

Boys Golf (9-6)
After struggling through their highest-scoring round of the year, posting a 226 on Wednesday against Westminster, Taft, and Avon, the boys golf team rebounded with a sizzling 194 on Friday to sweep T-P and Salisbury. It was the team’s third-lowest combined team score in the last four years on a nine-hole course. Up next for the team is a doubleheader on Wednesday at Berkshire and a three-way match on Saturday.

Girls Tennis (6-2)
The girls tennis team enjoyed an exciting week, with a dominant 8-1 win at Westy on Wednesday, and then a thrilling comeback 5-4 win over rival Greenwich Academy on Saturday. In the match against the Gators, the team dropped the first three singles matches before rallying to win the final three and clinch the match. Next up for the varsity are Miss Porter’s on Wednesday and Taft on Saturday. The JV team split their pair of matches, winning 4-3 at Westy and losing 2-5 at GA. Coaches praised the play of Sydnie Miller ’19 and Amy Ionescu ’21, who won her #3 singles match 10-0 on Wednesday.

Boys Tennis (9-1)
For boys varsity tennis, the hits just keep on coming, with two more wins, a 6-1 victory over visiting Avon on Wednesday and 7-0 shutout at Kingswood-Oxford on Saturday. The sweep of K-O was especially impressive because it was the first victory of any kind over the Wyverns in many years. The boys JV team swept Salisbury 7-0 on Wednesday to maintain their perfect season, dropping a total of 17 games across six singles and three doubles matches.

Ultimate Frisbee (10-2)
The varsity Ultimate Frisbee team dropped a tough 11-12 game to in-state rival Middletown HS in a rematch from earlier this season, won by the Bearcats. In this game, Hotchkiss jumped out to an early lead, but Middletown rebounded to take the lead at halftime and never looked back. The game showed the diverse collection of talent on the team, with eight different players scoring points and six players tossing assists.
