Year in Review

Athletics

By Mr. Gary Schnell, Athletics Director 

What a difference a year makes. Thanks to the leadership of Headmaster Wilson and the Governing Board, the Development Office, the generosity of our alumni, the Parents’ Association, parents and friends of the school, and the careful eye of Capital Projects Director Mike Carline, we have one of the best outdoor facilities in the area. Not only is it a great place to practice, play and work, it is absolutely beautiful. The athletic department and the boys are very grateful for this great athletic venue.

This year the Bulldogs won four IAC championships, two DCSAA state championships, and a rowing championship.

Cross-country won its seventh consecutive IAC championship.

Soccer won the IAC regular season and IAC playoffs to earn their third championship in four years and a number-three final ranking in the Washington Post.

Tennis won its IAC regular season as well as the playoffs to earn its sixth consecutive championship.
Track and field won the IAC championship for the second time in four years.

Crew won the Virginia State Rowing Association title, and soccer and baseball won the DCSAA state titles.

Track and field finished third in the DCSAA meet.

There were many more exciting things that happened during the athletic year, including winning our first football and soccer games played on Steuart Field.

Our aquatics team set nine new school records and finished the season with an 8-3 record, Ice Hockey had the most wins in team history (ten) including its first-ever win over DeMatha.

We hosted our first track meet in more than years led by an honorary first lap around the track by former athletic director and head track coach Skip Grant.

The varsity crew second eight captured the gold medal at the Stotesbury Cup regatta in Philadelphia.

Individually we also had some tremendous accomplishments.

Theo Bates ’16 was the Robert Rice Award winner. Theo was a three-sport athlete (football, aquatics, track and field), and all IAC in football and track, as well as All-Met Honorable mention in track.

Our three-sport varsity letter winners were Stefan Adebajo ’16, Theo Bates ’16, Miguel Burelli ’16, Chris Crafton ’16, Adam Langenbacher ’16, Nico Mandel ’16, Alex Pack ’16, and Jabari Wilbon ’16.
