Many of the winter sports are winding down, although men’s basketball and hockey have tournament games to play and there are many individual races still to be run (or to be swum). The women’s hockey team put up a great fight at the NESCAC tournament, and the men’s team continues this weekend against Colby College. The women’s basketball team finished a strong season by making it to the NESCAC semifinals, while the men’s squad lost a tough game to Williams in the finals. The men continue their season in the NCAA tournament AT HOME this weekend.
Our wrestlers have had a tremendous season, with graduate student Devon Carrillo and senior Isaiah Bellamy winning their regional tournaments, and senior Dominic Pirraglia also qualifying to go on to the national NCAA tournament in Cleveland. We have swimmers going on to compete in the national tournament, with our 400 meter freestyle relay team (senior Zoe Kerrich, and sophomores Caroline Murphy, Hannah O’Halloran and Grace Middleton) setting a school record!
One early morning last week I ran into a couple of softball players getting ready for an indoor scrimmage, and so one can feel spring on the horizon! The men’s and women’s lacrosse teams take their respective fields on Sat., March 3 at 1 p.m. to take on rival Williams College.
Spring is almost here. Good luck to our student-athletes finishing up the winter!
