Spring Athletic Information and Winter Recap!
Posted 03/03/2020 10:00AM


Good Morning Families!

It has been an exciting few weeks at Mount Greylock. I have included a summary of recent co-curricular and athletic successes as well as information to make sure anyone interested is ready for the upcoming spring athletic season.

This past Thursday, Friday and Saturday, under the direction of Mr. Welch and Mr. Moors, members of the School Musical Cast, Crew & Pit Orchestra performed “Anything Goes”.  All three musical performances were a success and the Auditorium was packed. There were 50 student participants this year! The Spring Drama group will begin rehearsing in the next few weeks with performances scheduled for May 15 & 16.  If interested in participating, be sure to register to be on the email list!

The Mechanical Mounties attended a FIRST Robotics District Event this past weekend in Woodstock, CT. The team performed really well during qualifying rounds but unfortunately lost during Quarterfinals, finishing 5th for the weekend. The team now heads to Springfield, MA on March 20th for the next District Event.

The Nordic Ski Teams finished a great season at the MIAA State Championship Race on Tuesday, February 25th.  The Boys Team earned a first place finish and the State Title with excellent performances by Col McDermott(4), Corban Miller (13), Foster Savitsky(T15), Owen Tucker-Smith(T15), Quinn McDermott(18),Cedric Lemaire(19), Gabe Gerry(22) and Ollie Swabey(25). The girls also had a successful day finishing in 2nd place as State Finalists!  Racers includedAnnie Miller(9), Brandi Gill(10), Jackie Wells(12), Lily McDermott(16), Juliann Lawson(20), Miriam Bakija(22), Elizabeth Dupras(31) and Sophia Mele(41).

The Wrestling Team finished 15th in the MIAA Western Mass Championship.  Students Jack Rosier and Ty Lepicier placed 4th in their respective weight classes qualifying them for the MIAA Divisional State ChampionshipsJack finished 5th and therefore qualified for the MIAA All-State Championships this past weekend.

The Boys Basketball Team had two come from behind games in the MIAA Western Mass Tournament.  They entered the tournament as the #9 seed beating Greenfield(#8) on the road this past Tuesday in the first round of games and then travelling to play Narragansett on Friday.  The team closed a 16point deficit to tie the game and force overtime play. Unfortunately, the team fell to the #1 seeded Narragansett squad within the last seconds of the MIAA Quarter-Final game. It was a fantastic game and season for the Mounties. Senior Toby Foehl accomplished the 1000point milestone earlier this season and finished his career as the second highest scorer in Mount Greylock history with 1,203 points.

The Girls Basketball Team qualified for the MIAA Western Mass Tournament for the first time since the 2017 season.  Finding themselves at 5-10 with five games left of the season, the team had to win the last five games to qualify – and they did! The Mounties earned the #11 seed and unfortunately fell to #6 seed Granby in the first round of competition.

The Cooperative Hockey Team including five students from Mount Greylock just missed out on the MIAA Tournament this season finishing with a 4-11-4 record. 

 

SPRING ATHLETIC INFORMATION
The spring season begins on Monday, March 16th and the Parent/Athlete Meeting (required for all student athletes and a parent who have not attended this year) will be on Wednesday, March 11th at 6pm in the School Auditorium. During the first few weeks of the season, practices could fall anytime between 2:45m and 9:00pm. Once teams are able to be outdoors consistently with proper weather and field conditions, practices will be during the traditional 3-5pm time slot with buses each direction at 5:15pm.

Please ensure that any student interested in participating has completed the online registration and that a copy of a recent physical exam is on file with the school nurse.
Registration must be completed by 8pm the evening prior to the start of a practice or tryout to ensure student will be eligible to participate.
Students that register after 8pm the evening prior will not be cleared in time to participate and students that do not register will not be able to participate.
Missing a practice may affect team selection for those sports with a tryout period.
