Key Upcoming Games

Varsity Boys Cross Country

Independent School League (ISL) Championships | November 1 | Away at St. Mark’s School

Boys Cross Country is already looking ahead to its first championship meet at St. Mark’s School. “For ISLs, I think we have a great chance for a top 3 finish given the strength and depth of the team this year, and I believe that we should have for a top 3 finish again,” said Captain Derek Chang ’20. Fellow Captain Joshua Guo ’20 added that the boys are focused on beating the teams they’ve lost to earlier this season, like Tabor Academy, St. Mark’s School, and Belmont Hill School. 


Varsity Girls Cross Country 

VS BB&N, Governors and Thayer | October 26 | At Home 

This weekend, the Girl’s Cross Country will race for the final time at home in an important, four-way meet. Coach Michael O’Donnell looks forward to the race, noting how he “thinks we’ll have some great racing on Saturday. Our girls tend to race very well at home, and it will be a particularly big day for the sixth formers who race for their last time at home. We’ll have strong competition, but we’re looking forward to seeing how we stack up.”


Varsity Boys Soccer 

VS St. Mark’s | November 9 | Away at St. Mark’s School

Last season the team came out in an exciting, decisive victory against St. Marks, beating the team 2-0 in less than ideal conditions. Captain Max Steinert ’20 acknowledges that while “St. Mark’s is a long way away, just like every other game, we are looking to work for each other, play our game, and come out with the win.” 


Varsity Girls Soccer

VS St. Mark’s | November 9 | Away at St. Mark’s School

Last year, the soccer team suffered a tough loss against St. Marks, played not at home but at a nearby turf complex due to the rainy weather. Despite last year’s disappointment, the team is looking hopefully towards getting revenge. According to captain Katie Stovall ’20, the team has already “scrimmaged them during the preseason and won 2 – 0 which was a good start to the season, but both teams would have developed more and transformed since then, so it could look very different. The team wants to be prepared for everything.” 


Varsity Girls Field Hockey

VS St. Mark’s | November 9 | Away at St. Mark’s School

Last season the team lost to our school rival in a hard-fought but ultimately disappointing 0-1 battle. Memories of the near lost has motivated the team to train hard for the rematch, which will undoubtedly be another close game. Coach Kathy Leggat noted how her “players have been training very hard and she can see the massive improvement.” 


Varsity Volleyball

VS Tabor Academy | October 26 | At Home 

Last season, the team narrowly lost their contest with Tabor 2-3. This year, building off their experiences throughout the past two seasons, the team has high hopes to avenge their loss. Captain Rachel McMenemy ’20 hopes the team “gives a full effort and stays energetic throughout the matches.” Ultimately, she wants the team “to put into the game what they have been practicing and get a bump, set, kill every time the ball comes on to our side of the court.”


Varsity Football

VS St Mark’s | November 9 | Away at St. Mark’s School

A hallmark of St. Mark’s Day, last year’s football game was a resounding success: Groton decisively beat St. Marks 28-0 in an exciting home match-up. This year, the team hopes to build on its success. Captain Caleb Coleman ’20 said the players “know it’s always a crazy game but the hope is to have a similar outcome.”
