Fay Wins Hillside Track & Field Jamboree on Busy Tournament Weekend
This past weekend was an exciting one for the Fay athletic program with several big tournaments taking place on campus and at surrounding schools.
On Saturday the boys and girls track teams competing at the annual Hillside Jamboree. It was a picture perfect day for running, both teams competed hard and earned top finishes. For the boys, this was the first win since 2015, while for the girls, Saturday marked their first ever Jamboree victory. Throughout the day, many Fay athletes could be found on the top of the leaderboards in various events, but it was the overall depth of both teams that won them the day. Highlights include Ral N. ‘20’s three medals in the shot put, 100M, and 200M; Priscilla C. ‘20 finishing second in the pentathlon; Ryan T. ‘20 and Aidan R. ‘19 taking second and third in the pentathlon, and an upset win for the girls 4x100M relay team to close the meet out. In all, it was a great day to be a Fay track runner!
Fay Varsity Boys Tennis also competed in the Fessenden Tennis Tournament on Saturday. The top four players from eight different schools met at the Fessenden tennis courts. From Fay, Yan N. ‘19, Jai D. ‘19, Mostafa E. ‘19, and Tyler S. ‘20 all competed well. Each time a player won a match, they moved forward in the bracket and earned points for their team. With excellent results, highlighted by Jai D. ‘19 winning the entire tournament, Fay earned 25 points, beating out rivals Fessenden, Fenn, and Eaglebrook. Ultimately, the team finished one point behind the team champions, Roxbury Latin. It was a great day for Fay tennis, and the coaches were very proud of the boys.
The Boys Varsity Lacrosse team had a spectacular day at the 2019 Junior School Lacrosse championship at Fenn. The team came out of the gates firing on all cylinders winning their first three games of the day. The boys took down Fessenden, Fenn, and Indian Mountain with a combined score of 14-4 to start the tournament. These three wins, combined with a tie in their final game, secured them a spot in the championship game vs Indian Mountain (IMS.) Unfortunately, Fay could not overcome an early deficit and fell to IMS in the final. The second place finish marked one of the best finishes Fay has had in many years. Congratulations to the Fay team for their earnest effort and excellent play!
