“I believe we have the proper perspective on athletics. We think students learn certain things playing sports that they won't learn anywhere else in terms of teamwork, dedication and sportsmanship. It’s an extension of what we do in the classroom.“JOHN MACKAY, DEAN of special proGRAMS
Abby Jones pitched a double header (13 innings) Saturday in Rivers' annual softball tournament. Pitching a total of 65 at bats with five strikeouts and only one walk Abby allowed the team to finish second in the tournament. As well she contributed six defensive outs from the circle. Her control on the mound provided the team with the confidence to play two solid games against teams that had mercy ruled SG earlier in the season. We look forward to three more years with Abby playing for the Dragons.

On Saturday, the SG Track team headed to the ISTA Championships to take on the best the league had to offer. Despite the stiff competition, the squad's girls' discus throwers (Diya Moolani, Maya Bardorf, and Juliana DiNapoli) rose to the occasion, garnering three of the top five places in their event. In doing so, they became the first program to achieve this level of success in any girls' throwing event since 2012. Their performances on Saturday serve as a testament to the diligence, effort, and enthusiasm they have brought to the team throughout the season.

Last week at Rivers, the team found themselves tied at 4-4 with two games left. Battling through an injury and down 5-3, Max Gilbert fought his way back to win the second game and ultimately tilt the total games won toward St. George’s. SG ended up winning the match 6-4. Thank you, Max for your perseverance and hard work.
