As we enter the last week of the regular season, I want to first congratulate all of our student-athletes on a great Fall season. The work you have all put in has made the entire community proud as you have demonstrated what it means to be a Hurricane.
Last week provided some incredible action and excitement as many of our teams were able to wrap up some impressive victories!
On Wednesday, JV and Varsity Volleyball hosted the Berkshire School Bears in the Thatcher Gymnasium. JV Volleyball continued the dominance of Berkshire as they sent the Bears packing after three very strong sets. With the quick victory, the team was able to head over to the other side of the gym where they got to see an INCREDIBLE 4th set for varsity. Heading into the 4th our Hurricanes held a 2-1 and looked to put the Bears away. If only it were that easy! After a MARATHON of a set, showcasing tons of grit and determination, our Hurricanes defeated Berkshire 36-34 to avenge an early-season loss in Sheffield. This victory was a highlight of the fall season and a "W" the entire school should be proud of.
On Saturday our Varsity Soccer team traveled to Master's in CT and played their hearts out in a winning effort. With a new goalie, a number of injuries, and a long road trip, the traveling Hurricanes managed not only to win but to shut out host Master's in what was surely one of the better games of the year.
Speaking of best efforts, our Cross-Country team traveled to Suffield Academy on Saturday for a HUGE meet. On a unique course on the road, our Hurricanes took advantage of some great conditions and finished with a number of personal records and a great overall showing.
This week brings us to the end of the fall regular season and just a few more home games, including SENIOR DAY on Saturday, November 11!
