Athletics Week in Review: May 6-12

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 (11-8)
The boys varsity golf team put up another two solid performances, carding their 18-hold best 401 on Wednesday. The score was good enough to beat Berkshire 401-407, but the Bearcats fell 401-378 to K-O. On Saturday, the team split another pair of matches, posting a nine-hole 194 at home, which beat Canterbury but not Avon, who shot an eye-popping 178. Coach Jason Maier gives kudos to team captain James Horrocks ’19, who shot a 73 on Wednesday, good for his sixth consecutive team low round.

Girls Tennis (9-2)
The girls varsity tennis team began with a comfortable 9-0 sweep at Miss Porter’s on Wednesday, then followed up with a key 5-4 Founders League home win over Taft on Saturday. The Bearcats swept all three doubles matches, but needed key singles wins by Ginny Barnes ’19 at #3 and Savi Roberts ’19 at #1 to clinch the match. The girls JV team split a pair of matches, winning 6-1 over the Daisies on Wednesday and falling 3-4 to Taft. Head coach Wendy Levithan gave kudos to Ava Hingson ’19, Emily Beutner ’22, and Sydnie Miller ’19 in the loss.

Boys Tennis (10-2)
The boys varsity tennis team rebounded from its first loss in nearly six weeks, a tough 2-5 decision to Deerfield on Wednesday, with a triumphant win at this year’s SNETL tournament on Saturday. The performance for the Bearcats at the event was a resounding success, with no fewer than five Hotchkiss players reaching the finals of their draws. Jerry Qiao ’22 (#3), Jack Louchheim ’20 (#5), and Max Beckwith ’21 (#6) all won their draws. Cole Maura ’19 and Clay Glovier ’20 also reached the finals of the #1 doubles draw. The boys JV team became road warriors on the week, winning 5-2 at Taft on Wednesday and winning 5-2 at Avon on Saturday. Kudos to Kevin Zhao ’20, Andrew Oliver ’20, and Federico Arengi Bentivoglio ‘22, who won their singles matches on both days.

Ultimate Frisbee (12-4)
The varsity Ultimate Frisbee team finished fourth at this year’s Connecticut state championship tournament, hosted here on campus. The team opened with wins in pool play, 8-4 over Staples HS and 8-6 over Wooster, before dropping the semifinal game 6-9 to Xavier. The team then lost its third-place game 9-11 to Choate.
