This piece also appears in our November 2019 print edition.

Boys Crew

The boys crew team ended the season near the top of public schools in the area, narrowly losing to Duxbury in one of the season’s final races. With the top boys boat being all seniors, the team is preparing for a newer line up in the spring and next fall. On the weekend of October 19th, the boys team raced a four boat in the Head of the Charles Youth Fours. Although they did not come in the top fi...

Girls Crew

The girls crew team had an impressively strong fall season. The team received a gold medal at the Textiles Regatta and a silver medal in regionals. The team branched out from their past seasons, racing a varsity eight instead of a four in notable regattas. They raced a varsity four and eight boat at the Head of the Charles, with the four boat coming in eighteenth out of 85 in the Women’s Junior Y...

Boys Soccer

The boys soccer team broke new ground this year by making the playoffs in the Dual County League for the first time. Led by captains Abderrezzak Alfrid ’20 and Peter Murphy ’21, this season they had the best record (10-6-2) in years. The team was able to clinch a playoff berth in front of an enthusiastic Senior Night crowd by winning 1-0 to Burke High School. The game had the whole crowd on the...

Girls Soccer

The girls varsity soccer team struggled this year, rounding out the season with a record of 4-13-1, missing the cut for playoffs. The season’s highlight was the team’s final game of the season, Senior Night, with a 5-0 victory over Everett High School. The team hopes to build a winning culture around their first-year coach, Meg Willette. Junior Anna Betancourt, the team’s leading scorer, said, ...

Football

This fall’s football season has not been what many on the team were looking forward to after a large opening season win. Starting quarterback Ashur Carraha ’21 attributed the team’s lack of success to “a lot of people [thinking] they were more prepared than they really were.” However, he sees this year as an opportunity to teach many of the younger players how to dedicate themselves to a...

Golf

The varsity golf team experienced a rebuilding year this season, finishing with a winless record in the ultra-competitive Dual County League. According to Ryan McLaughlin ’21, “It’s pretty difficult [to play in the DCL] because a lot of the kids on the teams we’ve played have been playing for a long time, whereas most of the kids on varsity [at CRLS] have only started playing [during] the la...

Boys Cross Country

This season was a building year for the cross country team. Oscar Benedek ’21 said, “We have a bright future ahead of us because we have a very strong, young base of excellent runners.” The group of CRLS’ seven fastest runners representing the boys varsity team at States only had one senior. Although none of the runners from this group qualified for the All-State meet, the team had a strong sho...

Girls Cross Country

“The season went okay for the team as a whole,” said Sophia Price ’21 of the girls cross country season. “Many people on the team were able to get new personal records.” Price herself achieved a new personal record and was the only runner that represented CRLS at the All-State meet for boys or girls, after she finished in seventh place in the Eastern Massachusetts Divisional meet. Senior Annie M...

Girls Volleyball

The girls varsity volleyball team ended the season with only three wins over eighteen games. The team is underclassmen-heavy, which gives them hope for future seasons. Coach Kelley Leary attributed the team’s struggles to the youth of the team, but she said, “If [the team] can apply what we are doing and learning consistently, [the team has] a big upside.” This year is the second year in a ro...

Orienteering

The CRLS orienteering team continued to compete in nearby meets this fall. The team pushed themselves this year, in both the physical endurance aspects and the mathematical side of the sport. Cian O’Toole ’22 said of the team, “[Orienteering is] more of a personal thing, and we feel rewarded by working really hard ourselves. So when we look at numbers and trophies, orienteering doesn’t have muc...
