Winter Sports Recap - Concord Academy

CA teams enjoyed a successful winter season, highlighted by a hard-fought victory at the annual Battle of Lexington and Concord, which resulted in the return of the Red Drum trophy for the first time since 2013!

The winter of 2018–19 marked the resounding return to the mat of the coed varsity wrestling team after not having the numbers to field an interscholastic squad last year. Under the leadership of new head coach, Zach Bloom ’14, 12 wrestlers committed to bringing back CA’s proud wrestling tradition and did just that. The squad ended the season with a winning record, finished fourth at the EIL tournament, and had three wrestlers qualify for NEPSAC. We look forward to watching the program continue to grow next year!

The Alpine ski teams enjoyed another successful campaign on the slopes of New England this winter. The girls and boys team each earned a league trophy with a second- and third-place finish respectively. CA also competed in the NEPSAC championships at Sundown Mountain in Connecticut and represented the Green with pride. The girls earned fourth- and fifth-place finishes, and the boys, two fifth-place finishes on the day!

The boys and girls varsity squash teams once again represented CA well at the NEPSAC championships. On the strength of their regular-season record, the girls’ team was invited to compete in the NEPSAC class-B tournament for the second consecutive year. This is a huge achievement, as the class-B bracket comprises much larger schools with very strong programs. The boys were invited to the class-C tournament this year and competed well, finishing just two points out of third place.

The boys varsity basketball team posted four wins, including the clincher at the Battle, but lost three heartbreakers by one point in a season of near misses. The girls varsity team was composed of many new players, resulting in a rebuilding campaign. A big win on Senior Day in overtime was the highlight. The future looks bright, with the girls JV team posting another winning record, including a huge nail-biting victory at the Battle. Boys JV was also very young, but clearly improved a great deal across the season.

Go Green!
