Owen has been a steady presence for the thirds basketball team all season. He is a great teammate who always brings a positive attitude and a solid work ethic to practice. Owen is a smooth shooter with a soft touch a real knack for putting the ball in the basket. Against Tabor last week, his deep three-pointer in overtime broke open a tie game and helped lead the thirds team to victory.
- Girls Varsity Basketball
Leiya was key to two road wins for Girls Varsity Basketball this weekend. She tallied 46 points in two games, including a clutch three-pointer to send Saturday's game into overtime. She has established herself as one of the best players in the league, and despite other teams swarming her constantly, is able to keep her composure and find a way to be effective. Her athleticism and tenacious defense are a force to be reckoned with.
- Boys Varsity Hockey
In Saturday's 4-2 road win over Millbrook this senior forward was the catalyst, factoring in all four SG tallies with three goals and one assist. His third-period hat trick overwhelmed the Mustangs and paced the way for the Dragons en route to the statement-making victory. His leadership and offensive prowess have proven essential early in the season and have given balance and depth to the SG scoring attack.
- Girls JV Soccer
This Dragon has made positive strides all season, playing in various positions although making her biggest mark as center midfielder. In our game last week against Milton, Caroline fought for each ball, winning 50/50s in the air and keeping her head up in order to create plays down field. She has been increasingly hard working, vocal, and supportive on the field and therefore an asset to the team.
- Boys Cross Country
Saturday’s race and ISL victory over St. Sebastian’s was the last home meet for this Dragon. During his tenure on the team, Spencer has been the epitome of what the team stands for: hard work, camaraderie, and mental and physical toughness. He has battled our home course for four years, a track that proudly boasts the single toughest mile on any course in the ISL. He saved his best for last, running his best time ever and improving his Hilltop personal record by 33 seconds.
- Varsity Football
In Saturday’s game against St. Mark’s, this Dragon proved to be a real warrior. Will played a full 48 minutes in the trenches, and although he doesn’t have a showy stat sheet, he blocked well on offense and opened paths for teammates on defense. In addition, he played on all special teams. Consistently outweighed by 50-80 lbs, he has battled all season and has improved each week.

Ryan has brought consistent energy and 100% effort since the season started. He has overcome an injury, and his grit has helped his team in several close games
- Girls Cross Country
This Dragon has been a great addition to the girls cross country team. In the last few meters of the team’s race against Groton last week, Camryn kept pushing to the end and passed another runner on the final stretch. As the only third former on the team, she has quickly solidified her spot on the varsity ranks. She puts forth her best effort on and off the course and this has made her an inspiration to her teammates.
Thanks to members of the girls varsity and JV programs who played in the Maddie Potts Invitational Tournament at Middletown on Sunday. Maddie was a senior at Chariho High School who tragically passed away on the field during a game against Middletown last September. Middletown Senior captain Kate Homer organized the fundraiser as her senior capstone project and SG competed against Portsmouth and Middletown in the round robin. Tiverton and Rogers also participated. It was a great day of soccer and the Potts family was on hand to see the joy brought together to celebrate Maddie’s legacy.
Thanks to: Kate Rogers, Alafair Cutler, Lilly Connell, Rayne Kayzee, Grace Tatirosian, Alex O’Loughlin, Maizy Nunes, Maya Bardorf, Brady Pattee, Pippa Shaw, Olivia Mastrangelo, Chiron Rose, Caroline Rios, Sion Park, Maya Florendo, Callie Holland and Peyton Mulhern. Coaches: Kate Farrell, Neile Golding and Sarah Mongan. Trainer: Jeff Nadeau offered volunteer coverage for the tournament on behalf of the RIATA.
- Girls JV Soccer
On and off the field, this Dragon has been an incredible support to her teammates and a player her coaches can rely on. Before the game last week against Nobles, Alafair and her fellow captains got the team together for a pregame pep-talk and it proved to be effective since the team won 4-1 and this player scored all four goals. Her positive energy, team first focus and work ethic have been quiet valuable all season.
- Thirds Field Hockey
In her first game in goal for the Dragons, a week after she donned the pads for the first time, Eloise stopped 12 shots in the first half, including a penalty stroke. She's off to a great start for the season!
Girls Cross Country
Sophia is new to the cross country team but has quickly made a huge impact. While her strong finish at Saturday’s race led the team to victories over Brooks and Lawrence, it is her daily focus and determination in practice and strong work ethic that makes her a role model for others.
Boys Varsity Soccer
A hard working, motivated player, Tate has been a stalwart for the Boys’ Varsity Soccer team this season. Playing as the central defensive midfielder, he has controlled the ball and stymied multiple attacks. Moved to the wing against Governor’s Academy, he was involved in creating all three goals and multiple scoring opportunities during Wednesday’s 3-0 win.
- Varsity Field Hockey
Bailey has brought consistent energy and 100% effort since practices began. She has already made noticeable improvements to her skills and game sense on the field, and has embraced an important midfield position. In last week’s game against East Greenwich, she held the right side of the field together and served as an important connector between the forwards and the defense.
- Boys Thirds Soccer
Christopher is always on time and ready to give his best during practice. He is a supportive team player and is constantly encouraging others to try their best as well as focusing on ways to improve his own skills. There is no doubt that he will continue to be a leader on the field and an encouraging member of the team from the sideline.
Going into the final event at the New England Championship one point away from a top three finish, the girls 4x400m relay team gutted out a fourth place finish and secured third place in the Championship for the Dragons. They ran a team record for the season and are one of the top five 4x400m teams in SG history. Congratulations to Sophia Petrovas, Alex O'Loughlin, Zoe Petrovas and Liliana Froehner!
Girls Varsity Softball
Beste has gone from a virtual novice to softball in her freshman year, to our starting third baseman as a senior. Her quick reflexes have made her a formidable defensive player on “the hot corner” and is also a solid hitter. Beste brings a positive attitude to practice each day which is much appreciated by players and coaches alike.
Girls Varsity LacrosseBailey has been a solid contributor to the team playing at her midfield position all season. On Wednesday’s tough back and forth game against Rivers, Bailey was first to the ball at the draw several times which often resulted in points scored for SG. Bailey is a focused and committed player and she is an encouraging and faithful teammate.
Girls JV Lacrosse
This past weekend, Lizzie's efforts in the goal propelled the JV girls lacrosse team to an exciting win over Brooks, 9-7. From the first minute of the game, Lizzie came to play, setting the tone early, with some key stops on point-blank shots. Throughout the game, she maintained an even-keel, playing well from start to finish. Her inspirational play throughout the contest provided the foundation for the team's excellent play and positive outcome.
