The JV and Varsity tennis team played tough against Walsingham Academy, with the Varsity match coming down to the wire! Although the Gators couldn’t get the tiebreaker, they showed much improvement from the first match with WA earlier in the year! The Field hockey squad traveled to the always tough Collegiate School on Tuesday and showed that they can play with anyone this year. The team is gearing up for some non-conference action next week, starting with an away game on Tuesday, September 24 at Walsingham Academy. The Volleyball teams are traveling to Saint Anne’s Belfield today, Friday, September 20.
