On Friday, April 29, CA hosted Bancroft in the CA/Bancroft Cup on a cool and sunny afternoon. The inaugural rivalry event included games across six sports with the winner of four contests or more earning the right to “take home” the coveted trophy.
CA’s girls and boys varsity tennis teams provided the Green with an early 2-0 overall lead by comfortably winning their matches on the beautiful Moriarty Athletics Campus tennis courts. Meanwhile the baseball and softball teams were locked in very tight and well played contests as the boys and girls varsity lacrosse teams took to the field. Concord’s boys lacrosse team jumped out to a commanding lead whereas the girls found themselves in the opposite position as Bancroft jumped ahead.
While CA’s softball and baseball teams played hard, they were ultimately defeated in very close contests resulting in a 2-2 overall score in the event at the midway point. All eyes then turned to the two lacrosse games in which both CA teams held a comfortable lead and ultimately secured those decisive victories. With CA earning the needed four wins to capture the Cup, following a short trophy presentation on the fieldhouse deck, the CA captains hoisted the Cup in celebration!
Along with an exciting afternoon of competitions, CA’s student organizations, CASA and the Student Athletic Council, organized two successful fundraisers at the event with proceeds going to a Ukraine charitable organization. The Concord and Bancroft communities look forward to continuing this spirited event as it moves to Bancroft in 2023.
