The middle of April produced some outstanding weather in the northwest corner of Connecticut, and the Indian Mountain Falcons capitalized on a number of different opportunities across the board.

The boys lacrosse program thrived on both levels, as the varsity and junior varsity teams combined to go 3-0 over the last week and a half, doing so in dominant fashion. The junior varsity team defeated Rumsey Hall 9-3 and capped the victory off with a 13-1 win on the road at Mizzentop. Alex Marti led the way on attack, and Eli Widener played strong in net allowing only 4 goals over a two-game span. The varsity boys team exemplified grit and toughness against a physical Salisbury thirds’ team, defeating them by a score of 5-2. The defense was anchored by strong play from Changeun Lee, Leo McCray, and Diego Suinaga. Contributions from the midfield by Henry Hoyt and Kaleb Mucius stabilized the Falcon’s offense.

The Tennis program also built upon their success from the middle of April and recently capped off a dominant performance over the Kent JV by a score of 6-1. Savannah Roberts, Alejandro Gonzales, and Leo Li combined to go 24-1 in their respective matches, and their play at the top of the ladder set the tone for the rest of their team.

The girls lacrosse program had a quiet stretch, as the varsity team was rained out against Westminster last week. The team worked hard in practice and responded to the layaway with a 13-12 victory over Renbrook on the road. Ellie Traggio and Emma Wynne anchored the midfield, while Leslie Herold and Virginia Breen scored the tying and game-winning goals respectively.

Softball suffered a tough defeat at the hands of Rumsey Hall by a score of 4-14, and Varsity Baseball fell to Rumsey 2-10, despite strong pitching and a double play turned by Max Rhie.

Grandparents Day is next Friday, May 6. We hope to see you out on the field!
