Varsity field hockey finished fourth in their tournament.  They lost 5-0 to the British School of Netherlands in the semi-final. The  Eagles then lost 4-0 to the International School of Brussels.


Cross Country

The cross country team raced at Zurich International School for ISSTs, placing fourth overall. They battled challenging conditions as they ran in rain and 40 degree Fahrenheit weather. The varsity girls cross country team won gold, with Madeleine Ashton (’21) placing 6th and Maddy Whitman (’22) winning bronze. On the boys side, Lorenzo Collier (’22) led the team to 7th place with a 16th place finish. 

The race expanded considerably from previous years. With the redevelopment of the ISST, the number of participating teams increased from nine to 13, while the JV races were removed from the tournament. Previously, there were around 60 runners in each race and that number neared 100 this year. 

Captain Colette Gagné (’20) said it’s the perfect way to end her senior cross country season. “It’s the cherry on top for everything,” she said. Gagné said all their training prepared them for their good performances. “We obviously worked so hard for this,” she said. 

Gagné said that despite the short season, the team battled to meet their goals. “The season is so short and it’s so hard to get enough training to compete at the end against everyone else,” she said. “All that hard work paid off even though we all had our tough races.”
