At the end of October we look back on Pride success in athletics this fall. As always, there were great highs and lows on the field and cross country course.


The varsity cross country runners have improved their standing from last year fall, with three runners consistently placing in the top 10 at their NEPSAC meets. Jimmy Nolan ’21, Robbie Accomondo ’22, and Harry Clark ’23 placed in the top ten at Avon and Kent, and Toby Berner ’21 joined the group in the top placing group at Hotchkiss. Chris Pellitteri ’21, Ben Yoon ’20 and Lucas Hughes ’20 have also completed many races with high effort and standing. The team recently placed 6th out of eleven teams at the Shaler Invitational at Williston Northampton School on October 26th. Early in November the top runners will compete in the Founder’s race, and then New England’s on the ninth of November. 


After the varsity football team lost their opening game at Avon Old Farms, The Pride jumped out to a 3-1 record against with wins against Loomis Chaffee, Taft, and Williston Northampton. PG quarterback Kyle Bicho leads the offense with 14 total touchdowns and has recorded the most overall yards for the Pride. Captain Donte’ Williams ’20 has found the end zone five times on the season, and Bicho’s other favorite target, PG Jaden Clark, has been a consistent big play threat. Tailback Eddie Torres ’22 had a breakout performance against Williston with 131 yards on the ground and his positional partner Kam Katsch ’22 adds to the offense with his relentless motor. Defensive rocks Williams, Matt Bologna ’20, Stuart Phillips ’21, Liam Dietrich ’21, Mason Clark ’22 and Cebastian Searight ’22 lead the team in tackles and takeaways. The past two weeks the Pride have suffered heartbreaking losses on Coratti Field with the chance to win on the final play of each contest. Next week the team travels to Brunswick to avenge last years loss on Coratti Field.


After a promising 4-3 September record, the Pride has suffered a backbreaking eight losses in a row. The team has been plagued by injuries in multitudes from game, practice, and incidents off the playing field. Leadership by team stalwarts Pat Murphy ’20, Trevor Cole ’20, Andrew Belcher ’22, and Farhaan Rashid ’23 have kept the Pride moving with their best foot forward, and the team looks to take on their final foes with excellence to end the season on a good note.

Roll Pride!
