As we head into the last week of the season our teams are clicking on all cylinders and looking to wrap up the Spring on a high note.
Wednesday 5/9 saw a TON of action on campus as both Lacrosse teams, Softball, and both golf teams were competing. Varsity Golf hosted both Williston and Miss Porter's at Cranwell and while they didn't get the team result they were after, they did set some incredible individual scores, some being season lows for members of our Varsity Golf team. JV Golf passed the Williston bus on the road as they headed to Williston to get a round in. It was a follow-up match with Williston and our JV golfers showed what some hard work and dedication can do as they all showed great improvement from their first matchup.
A late inning rally wasn't quite enough for our Softball team as they scrapped back into their matchup with Indian Mountain. It took a few innings for the bats to wake up on Wednesday but once they did our softball team saw an offensive surge that, had there been just a little more softball to be played, would have almost certainly led to another big victory.
Also on Wednesday, Lacrosse had a doubleheader on campus. In what may have been the most exciting game of the season, our Varsity Lacrosse team kicked off the doubleheader with a "W" against visiting Vermont Academy. With just a few seconds to play and the score tied, our Hurricanes crashed the net and Raven Matias ripped a shot past the Vermont goalie causing both the bench and the bleachers to erupt in celebration. Following up that excitement, our JV Lacrosse team played a very strong Bement program. It was a back and forth battle with both teams playing some GREAT lax. Ultimately, Bement came out with the win but it was not for a lack of effort of execution from our JV lax team.
On Friday, V. Lax hit the road to Berkshire School where they jumped out to a fast and large lead. They caught the host Bears sleeping on their home turf and our quick start proved to be just what we need to ride out the game and secure a win on the road.
Rounding out the week, and despite some WET conditions, our lacrosse team hit the road again as they went to Granby to play in the mud. In this matchup our offense proved to be more than the MacDuffie School could handle as our lacrosse attack dumped in 16 goals on their way to yet ANOTHER win.
This is our last week of spring sports so if you haven't gotten a chance to check out our Hurricanes yet PLEASE get out there this week/weekend! Our student-athletes leave it all out on the field, they are a ton of fun to watch compete and truly appreciate your support!
