Spring Sports Season Update, June 9
Softball: The Softball team ended their season and celebrated Sharon King ’17, Maddie Neff ’17, and Helen Aroush ’17 in their senior game against Ursuline on Monday, May 22. The girls played hard until the end and the coaches were proud of their effort and improvement over the course of the season. In our final celebration as a team, the players were recognized with top team awards. For her outstanding work as a rookie, a consistent starter at first base, and third on the team in batting, Lindsey Freeman ’20 won the Rookie of the Year Award. The Coaches Award for consistent effort and excellent leadership went to Sharon King ’17. The team MVP, for the overall best performance from defense to batting average, went to Alex Chaisson ’18.
Girls’ Tennis: The Girls’ Tennis team had a great season, ending the year with an 8-9 record. Season highlights included two wins against Lowell Catholic and Annie McElroy ’19 winning in a 2.5-hour set at first singles versus Pope John. Jada Ross ’17 lead the team with seven wins at second singles along with Emily Taranto ’17 and Audrey McDonough ’17 at first doubles, also with seven wins. Team MVP was awarded to Jada Ross ’17, Coaches Award was awarded to Kyasha Ambroise ’20, and Most Improved went to Sanaya Panthaki ’20. Jada, Audrey and Emily have been awarded League All Stars. The team is graduating seven seniors this year, but is excited for rebuilding the team next year.
Track and Field: The Track season ended with an excellent performance by both the Girls’ and Boys’ teams at the CCL Championships. Several competing athletes received medals for their performances. Phillipe Legagneur ’17 came in 1st in the 200m sprint, earning him League All-Star in that event. JoJo Duplan ’17 came in second in the Triple Jump, and earned League All-Star for her event as well. Other notable performances include: Legagneur, 4th place in the mile; Fred Lu ’18, 2nd place in discus; Vova Quigley ’17, 3rd place in javelin; Camille Taylor ’19, 5th place in 200m and 8th place in the 100m sprint.

Boys’ Tennis: The Boys’ Tennis team finished the season with an overall record of 4-11 (4-6 in the CCL), with wins over Matignon (twice), St. Mary’s (Lynn), and Arlington Catholic. All eleven student-athletes committed themselves to the team and to their individual development as players throughout the course of the season. With only one graduating senior and two returning juniors, there is a lot of talent and depth for the program to build around in the coming years. Dante Salvucci ’17, who helped establish the team three years ago, received the team’s Most Valuable Player award for his leadership as a captain and first singles player. Anthony Khoory ’19 earned the Coaches Award for his positive attitude, excellent sportsmanship, and dedication to the sport. Jaehun Kim ’19 was named Most Improved Player for his hard work and a thoughtful approach to developing his game.
Girls’ Lacrosse: The Girls’ Lacrosse team ended the season with seven games in ten days and continued to demonstrate the progress they made throughout the season. Katelynn O’Connor ’20 finished the season with 36 goals and 41 points, placing her fourth in the CCL Small in goals and fifth in points. The team honored seniors Cayleigh McMullan ’17, Jackie Joyce ’17, and Jillian Kelley ’17 (Academy of the Pacific Rim) during the final game of the season; McMullan notched her second goal of the season against Ursuline that day. The team will miss the seniors but the girls are looking forward to next season already!
