Two Nobles athletes making the news

Noble & Greenough junior forward Chris Calnan has committed to play hockey for Jerry York and the Boston College Eagles starting in 2013. Calnan will join a strong Boston College team that has dominated Hockey East in the past decade, as rival Boston University has slipped.

Oliver White of Noble & Greenough School was selected as the 2011-12 Gatorade Massachusetts Boys Soccer Player of the Year. White is the second Gatorade Massachusetts Boys Soccer Player of the Year to be chosen from Noble & Greenough School.

The 5-foot-11, 165-pound senior forward scored 15 goals and passed for six assists this past season, leading the Bulldogs (13-3-1) to the New England Prep School Athletic Council Class A tournament quarterfinals. White is a two-time Independent School League Offensive Player of the Year. He concluded his prep soccer career with 41 goals and 16 assists.

White will be taking his soccer skills on the road to Harvard next fall.

Prep school entrepreneurs introduce Boston Rockhoppers pro lax team

The Boston Rockhoppers are the newest team in the newly formed North American Lacrosse League. The NALL will start playing soon, and the team is owned by two Babson College grads.

Co-owner Tyler Low graduated from Noble & Greenough and was a 4 year player for Babson’s lax team, while co-owner Jason Wellemeyer graduated from Catholic Memorial and was a 4 year player on Babson’s lax team as well. The two launched PrimeTime Lacrosse a few years ago, and they have been featured as “America’s Top Young Entrepreneurs” in Bloomberg’s BusinessWeek magazine.

Belmont Hill & Nobles prep hockey rivals now stars at Princeton

From Boston.com/Marvin Pave

1/22/2012

Mike Condon and Derrick Pallis are best of friends now, Princeton University teammates focused on trying to keep the puck out of the net for the men’s hockey squad.

Condon, a 6-foot-2, 195-pound junior goalie from Needham, shares time in goal with sophomore Sean Bonar.

A 6-foot-1, 190-pound senior defenseman from Medfield, Pallis anchors the blue line for the Tigers.

The two were rivals in the Independent School League, with Condon tending goal for Belmont Hill School while Pallis suited up for Noble & Greenough School in Dedham. They went head-to-head four times, with Belmont Hill winning three, according to Condon.

“We’re always chirping at each other, sometimes about our private school days, but in a respectful way,’’ said Condon, who helped Princeton complete a 1-0-1 weekend with 27 saves in a 3-3 tie against ninth-ranked Cornell last Saturday night.

Nobles and Belmont Hill represent some of New England’s  prep school hockey at it’s finest. Lots of players from both schools have gone on to play DI or DIII college hockey, and there are a few NHL players or alumni from both schools.

This would be more of a story of it were Nobles and Milton grads, but it’s a good story anyways. Nobles’ biggest rival is Milton, and not Belmont Hill. St. Seb’s hates Belmont Hill. In fact, when I toured St. Seb’s, they told me that it was a requirement that you do your best to beat Belmont Hill whenever possible.

Nobles v. Belmont Hill would make a pretty good Frozen Fenway matchup. Both teams are battling to get up in the standings in the Keller division of the ISL. A lot of people thought that Nobles would be better this year, but they lost a few really good players to graduation and to juniors.

Mid-terms are here and life is less than fun

Mid-terms are definitley here, and they are not fun. We’re all just trying to get through them and do our best.

If you are taking a break, click on the video for a laugh. Sometimes the video loads with an anti-Scott Brown ad. If it does, wait 5 seconds and then skip it. Senator Brown is the father of Ayla Brown, prep school basketball legend from Nobles. He’s the man.

And the celebrity prep school grad of the week is…

…Wyc Grousbeck, co-owner the Boston Celtics.

Wyc graduated from Noble & Greenough before going on Princeton, then getting his law degree from Michigan and his MBA from Stanford. After 20+ years of school, Grousbeck went on to become a venture capitalist (probably providing jobs for some of the parents of the students at Occupy Boston) before purchasing the Boston Celtics and returning them to glory.

Now that the NBA is back, look for Grousbeck on the sidelines at Celtics games.
