First the Boys Ski Team cleans up at NEPSACs with a gold. Then the Boys Hockey Team claims its first Eberhart Trophy since ’85.
Now this weekend, the Girls Hockey Team and both Boys and Girls Basketball Teams are/were up for a championship.
The Girls Hockey Team won a thriller in 6OTs vs. rival Southfield, but then fell short in the semi finals on Saturday.
Now the Boys and Girls Basketball teams are in the finals hoping to give Rivers its 3rd and 4th Winter Championships this year.
A 4 out of 6 championship success rate with scholar athletes is something you don’t find outside of prep school.
Good Luck Rivers!
The annual Beanpot Hockey Tournament is probably Boston’s most iconic college sporting event. Involving Northeastern, Harvard, BC, and BU, the tournament features some of the best talent the country has to offer.
In the championship game tonight, dozens of prep school attendees fill the rosters of BC and BU. I’ll do my best to list off the schools, but forgive me if I missed any.
Nobles & Greenough, B.B.N., Thayer Academy, Belmont Hill, Roxbury Latin, Lawrence Academy, Tabor Academy, Avon Old Farms, Phillips Andover, South Kent, Salisbury School, Brewster Academy, Catholic Memorial, Marshall Prep, Northwood School, Westminster, and Choate Rosemary Hall.
This Wednesday at Fenway, The Rivers School’s Girls Varsity Ice Hockey Team will be facing off against St. George’s. Both schools have historically successful girls programs sending players to Boston College, Harvard, the U.S. National Team, and many others.
A few years ago, boys prep powerhouses collided at Fenway as shown in the above videos.
I’ll be there to witness history Wednesday. Will you?
