This year’s Fall Play was THAT’S THE SPIRIT, a murder mystery spoof directed by Mr. Lyman and produced by Ms. Benedict. The zany whodunit follows the murder of Hollywood psychic in a home that once belonged to a famed illusionist. The cast of characters–complete with a walking lampshade–make for a colorful and unusual list of suspects.
Congratulations to all who participated in the play, and thanks to Ms. Tew and Mr. Epaul for the photos!
Congratulations to Girls’ Varsity Soccer on winning the NEPSAC Class C Championship! The Mustangs capped an excellent season (11-1-1) by edging out Brewster Academy 2-0, with Emilee Auclair ‘18 and Mia Levesque ‘19 scoring and Ryleigh Cauley ‘19 with the clean sheet. This marks the third NEPSAC Championship in the past four seasons (previous wins were in 2014 and 2015) for the team.
In addition to winning the NEPSAC Class C Championship, the team was ranked #1 in New England Class C and Western New England Class C Champions, both for the second consecutive year.
Way to go, Girls’ Varsity Soccer–we are proud of you!
