The Girls Team beat the school’s all time record for the Girls Sprint Medley Relay and six other runners/jumpers made the all time top ten list. (You can find those details here.)

We’re nearing the end of the regular season for Basketball and Hockey. This morning the latest Power Rankings showed that Girls Basketball creeped closer to the cutoff for their D2 state playoffs (#32 out of 33 slots). But, according to the Community Advocate, they secured their spot with a 55-24 win over Shrewsbury on Friday. 

(The Boys also beat Shrewsbury, but are still just 51st in their rankings.)

In Hockey, the Gonk Boys lost two more games, but kept their 11th place in the D2 Power Rankings. Girls Hockey shot back up to 3rd place following two more wins.
