Ala Legowski ’19: Rising Soccer Star

Alexis “Ala” Legowski ’19 is a member of the Girls’ Varsity Soccer team, which won the Class D Championship in 2014 and again in 2015. Now she can add two more achievements to her soccer resume: playing at the Olympic Development Program U.S. National Training Camp and playing for the U17 Polish National Team.

MassLive recently published a story about Ala’s accomplishments. We’re proud of you, Ala, and we look forward to watching your continued success both on and off the field!

Girls’ Soccer Takes Championship

Our Girls’ Varsity Soccer team capped off a stellar 14-0-0 season with a 3-1 victory over Hamden Hall in the NEPSAC Class D Championships, notching back-to-back titles for the Mustangs.

The superb effort–a rematch of last year’s final–came together with a goal by Ania Ludkiewicz ’19 (assisted by Emilee Auclair ’18) and two goals by Mia Levesque ’19 (assisted by Cassidy Bailey ’17, then Ania Ludkiewicz). For a more in-depth game summary by Coach Meirion George, see the Coaches’ Corner entry.

Congrats on another phenomenal season!
