Congratulations to all of our fall student-athletes. GO MUSTANGS!
Our Mustangs had an outstanding fall season!

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!
Thanks to Mrs. Cauley for the photos.
We’re proud of you, boys!
Dana Tate and Alex Christie recently signed their Letters of Intent. Both will be playing Division I Basketball next year; Dana at the University of Rhode Island and Alex at Stony Brook University.
Congratulations to both…we look forward watching you play in your final season at MacDuffie!
Summer camp season passed by in a blink!
There were two camps at The MacDuffie School this summer: Our kids’ day camp and basketball camp.
Kevin Konstant, Director of Summer Programs, oversaw the day camp for rising 1st through 8th graders. Running in one-week sessions from July 10 to August 18, the camp included theater and dance, swimming, digital storytelling, forensics, art classes, and more…something for everyone. Camp MacDuffie was a success once again, and we look forward to next year.
Coach Rivera kicked off his first basketball camp (Running With Rivera), which ran from July 31 to August 4 and included kids ages 5 to 15. Forty-five developing basketball players worked with Coach Rivera, current players, and other area coaches. Coach said the inaugural camp was so well-received that he’s thinking of adding a second session for next year.
Thank you to all the families who supported our 2017 summer camps!
The good news is that our camps were fun and educational. The bad news is that summer is coming to a close…
