After only a few days of practice and preparation, the Maplebrook Cross Country team hosted Dutchess Day School for a cross country track meet. All of the student athletes were excited for the competition. Although the course was challenging each one of our athletes completed the course.
Our practices focused on maintaining an appropriate pace and increasing endurance. Each of our runners ran the course with those skills in mind. The top three Maplebrook students to complete the course did so in the following order:
Great job, everyone!
From all the hard work and practice, I think that Maplebrook played a competitive game. Our strongest players had a lot to prove against the strong Sherman team, and it was sure a fire cracker of a game! Nick tried very hard to help his teammates get more contact with the ball. Zach was doing a great job as a goalkeeper with the help of our defenders during the first half of the match. During that period, Nick caught the Sherman goalkeeper off guard and scored a wonderful goal.
During the second half, the Eagles made a switch in goalkeepers. Riley did a great job in net and put in one hundred percent effort. Bobby played solid defence while TD tried to move the ball up field. TD put in a lot of effort, which was much needed during this game. Also, Ben gave a lot of energy and had some brilliant touches during the match. In conclusion, I would like to say that the Maplebrook Soccer team had a strong performance despite losing 7 to 4. Nick scored four goals in the match. I wish them good luck for upcoming matches and I hope they will become legends in soccer.

Thank you, Saurabhya, for writing a well thought out recap!
The Maplebrook girls’ field hockey team had an outstanding first game against Mizzentop. Emma scored the first goal of the season with an assist from Kaylee and Eliza. Jordana played great offense while Faith T. and Sabrina played hard on defense. The Eagles ultimately lost, but showed a lot of improvement and dedication. Great job, girls! Our next game is away at Dutchess Day School on September 26th, at 3:30 pm.
Thursday, May 24th, 2018: Glenholme has informed us that they had to cancel the tennis match that was scheduled for this afternoon. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you!
The Eagles finished their season strong with a win against Glenholme. A solid team effort made it possible to come back and put five runs on the board during their last inning at bat. Jordana showed tough base running and even slid in to home plate! That slide put a much needed run on the score board. TD and Ethan put on a show with some nifty glove work in the outfield. Additionally, Ransom’s leadership was a key component. He was vocal on the field keeping his teammates aware of different scenarios happening in the game. It was a fabulous cap to the season and the team would like to thank their fans for all their support!
Tuesday, May 22nd, 2018: Hotchkiss School just informed us that because of the inclement weather, today’s away softball game at 4:00 PM has been cancelled. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us.
