Falcon Report: Spring Sports Begin
Our teams are gearing up for plenty of competition this spring. Adam Marcia shares this brief Falcon Report on the first matches of the season.
Varsity Tennis has been busy so far this spring. As of today they’ve played five matches, winning four of them. They played Renbrook in a highly competitive match yesterday. The Falcons battled for every point, but unfortunately the opponents had the edge. Varsity Tennis looks to bounce back in their next match away against Trinity Pawling on Friday.
JV Tennis played their first match yesterday away vs. Renbrook. Huxley and Bright won their singles matches. The pairs of Cyrus and AJ, Eva and Naomi each won their doubles matches. The final score ended up being a 4-4 tie. It was exciting to see JV tennis play with such ambition. Stay tuned for their next match tomorrow away at Rumsey Hall.
Varsity Girls Lacrosse played Miss Hall’s Varsity Lacrosse team yesterday afternoon. The game started off at a slow pace, but the Falcons caught their stride by halftime. They began to win a majority of the face-offs and locked it down on the defensive end. Anna, Rosie, Helen, and Emma played especially well in this game. The final score was a 12-6 win over the high school’s squad. Girls Lacrosse plays again tomorrow at Hotchkiss. Wish them luck!
Varsity Boys Lacrosse traveled to play Kingswood Oxford yesterday. Oliver, James, Papa Kofi, Jeremiah, Charlie, Fritz, and both Leos all scored. Nosa tried his hand at offense for the first time. Jeremiah and James tried out defense. David played his first couple of face-offs. It was a thrilling match up, and IMS made the far drive back in high spirits after their 13-2 win. Boys Lacrosse plays again tomorrow at Taft.
Golf played Hotchkiss’ JV team yesterday. Jayden, Zach, Margaret, Evonne, Emma, Chloe, and Kenden all went down the road to represent IMS in this match up. Jayden scored 45, Margaret 49, and Chloe 51. A few Falcons were even paired with some Hotchkiss Varsity players. It was an afternoon of good competition, and while IMS came back with a loss, they gained valuable experience going up against older, more seasoned golfers.
