Although the season is not filled with victories, the cross-country team is running some of its best times in years. Led by Captain Nick Grande ’19 the team has improved with each outing. Tommy Howell ’20, Jimmy Nolan ’21, Toby Berner ’21, and Jack Long ’21 have filled out the top five for the Pride in each of the harriers’ races.

A very young varsity soccer team has started the season playing some of the top teams in the country. This difficult schedule has not fared well for the Pride. Each game, the squad displays improvement in all areas of their game. Captains Mark Trainor ’19 and Jack Haims ’19 have worked hard to keep the team’s spirits positive. Coach Clougher hopes that as the team continues to improve, victories will follow in the second half of the season.

JV, third, and fourth soccer are all playing with young, inexperienced teams and their records reflect as much, yet the players show determination to keep improving with every game.

Varsity football has started the season with two wins and two losses. The victories came over Loomis Chaffee and Williston Northampton; the defeats came at the hands of Avon Old Farms and Taft. Donté Williams ’20 has taken over at quarterback and he has done a wonderful job guiding the offense. Zack Conlan ’19 has been terrific on both sides of the ball with impressive runs on offense and some important stops on defense. Aleksi Olavuo ’19 and Christian Keyes ’19 have contributed on the defensive side of the ball. The team is looking forward to the second half of the season with contests against Hotchkiss, Salisbury, Brunswick, and Kent.
