Congratulations to our student-athletes who signed their National Letter of Intent. Cameron Morra '18 will play tennis at the University of North Carolina, Mollie Carr '18 will play lacrosse at the University of Notre Dame, Maggie Bellaschi '18 will head to Stanford University to play lacrosse, Casey McTague '18 will play lacrosse at Denison University, and Carter Leahy '18 will head to Colgate University to play field hockey.

This is a significant accomplishment, as there are approximately eight million high school athletics and only a small portion go on to play at the collegiate level. Congratulations, Gators!

Congrats to the Stone Ridge Middle School Cross Country team for winning the Independent School League (ISL) Middle School Cross Country Championship!

Three years ago, inspired by a multitude of talented Middle School and Upper School runners, coupled with a vision to become a championship program top to bottom, the Stone Ridge cross country coaches and athletic staff conspired to launch the Middle School cross country program.

"Everything made sense," said SR Athletic Director Jason McGhee. "We had inspiring runners at the Upper School and Middle School levels, and we had great coaches in Upper School and new teachers in Middle School that we knew would make great coaches."

With coaches and runners in place, the Middle School program was launched in Fall 2015. Since that decision was made, the team has averaged more than 30 student-athletes and their results have been impressive. In its first two years of existence, the team scored second place in the ISL. This year, the team broke through becoming the first ever SR Middle School Cross Country team to win the ISL Middle School Cross Country Championship!

To show support and inspire the team more, the varsity coaches and athletes planned their practices around the championship and were able to attend and cheer the young Gators to victory.

With all the success of the program, what stands out most is the positive energy, enthusiasm, and fun that were evident at each and every practice and meet. Even more impressive is that each student-athlete supports and believes in each other, consistently striving to achieve their personal best (PB) or personal record (PR) from race to race.

Nothing better sums this culture up more than the highlight provided by the coaches in their "Notes from the Swamp" following the championship race which stated, "Working together as a team to take home an ISL Championship Win!" Congratulations Gators! #GatorStrong
