FIELD HOCKEY – Season record: 10-4-1

Varsity field hockey wrapped up a fantastic season by qualifying for NEPSACs, where they were knocked out in overtime, for the second year in a row.

Highlight: An amazing comeback win over Newton Country Day School. After going down 3-0, the Wildcats fought back to score four goals in the second half–in just twenty minutes! Said co-captain Elizabeth Brewster ’14, “Best senior day ever!”

Despite not fielding a JV team this year, Wildcats soccer had a great season. Everyone worked hard throughout the fall to embody the team’s signature possession-based style of play.

Highlight: A 2-1 victory over ISL team BB&N. Seniors Delancey King and Taylor Lynn-Jones both scored in a tremendous exhibition of skill against a talented team the Wildcats just love to beat.

Crew’s impressive fall season was, as co-captain Lindsey Ruggles ’14 put it, “full of lots of hard work and fun.” The first varsity four-person boat began the season with a strong third place finish at the Textile Regatta. The novice boats also made a splash at Head of the Housatonic, with one of Winsor’s eight-person boats placing in the top third of competitors.

Highlight: Head of the Charles, of course! Says co-captain Kate Elfers ’14, “For the first time in years, all of varsity had the opportunity to race at Head of the Charles!” Of the 20 rowers who raced, 12 had never taken part before.
