Over the past few weeks, the winter sports teams have been finishing up their regular seasons with great shows of sportsmanship. Here are some of the end-of-season highlights from Basketball, Squash, Swimming, and Track & Field.
Junior Varsity Basketball completed another undefeated season! Finishing up their season with strong wins against The Marymount School and The Léman School positioned them to be the #1 seed heading into the AAIS tournament. In the quarterfinals, they took on Chapin and boasted a strong win, which set them up for another win against Marymount in the semifinals. The team then moved on to finals where they took on Brearley. The game went back and forth with numerous lead changes but with just three seconds on the clock, the Cardinals triumphantly took the win after an unbelievable 3-pointer by Ella M. ’25. This game-winning point gave the Cardinals the lead by one point and the gym erupted in cheers! Congratulations to the entire team and coaching staff on a terrific season.
On a similar note, Varsity Basketball completed another undefeated season! After receiving a bye in the quarter-finals, they headed into the semifinals where they earned a strong win against Marymount. After a thrilling semi-final game against Packer, the Cardinals took home the AAIS championship title, putting an end to their regular season. Congratulations to the coaching staff and team and good luck as they move forward to compete in the NYSAIS tournament.
Throughout the season, Varsity Squash continued to make huge improvements, with some amazing strides in play during the final week of the season and into AAIS playoffs. They ended the season with a big win over Grace Church and will take that momentum into next year. Congratulations to the coaching staff and team on a terrific inaugural season.
Varsity Swimming continued its undefeated record and earned the title of AAIS Champions for an unprecedented 8th year in a row! The whole team swam phenomenally at the championship meet, with several swimmers qualifying for NYSAIS. Congratulations to the team on the AAIS win and good luck to those who will be competing in the NYSAIS competition.
Varsity Track had a great end to their season when they gave Spence a run for their money at the AAIS Championships! The Cardinals left it all out on the track and came within just six points of winning and breaking Spence's 5-year stranglehold on the title. A total of 13 personal records and two school records were set at this year's meet. We wish them luck as they go on to compete in the NYSAIS competition.
Congratulations to all of the teams on their great seasons so far and good luck to everyone who will be competing in NYSAIS championships over the next few days. Go Cardinals!
