Gator of the Game: Casey McTague '18

Highlight: Despite controlling the game tempo with great offensive ball movement, the Gators let in two early goals and struggled to finish multiple on goal shot attempts. Coach Gloria felt it was the most consistent hockey they have played all year. Senior Casey McTague was a brick wall on the defensive end and played her best game yet.

Decorated in blue and gold spirit regalia, the Stone Ridge gym was the place to be on September 15, as students gathered to celebrate one of Stone Ridge's newest traditions – the Blue/Gold Induction Ceremony.

Each year, new students to Stone Ridge learn whether they will be on the Blue or Gold teams. For 2017, 127 new students learned their lifelong color of True Blue or Bold Gold. They watched a video learning about school spirit throughout the year culminating in Father/Daughter Field Day. And yes they learned the winning team at the end of the year gets to ring the bell at the aquatic center as well as fly their flag all year at Gator Field.

The event, which was organized and led by Athletic Association leaders Sophie Lovett '18 and Mollie Carr '18, along with Blue/Gold captains from each grade level, consisted of dance-offs, cheer-offs, lip sync contests, knockout basketball competitions, T-shirt tossing, and good old fashioned suspense when calling students down to join their lifelong team. In short, it was a blast!

The show got started with an impromptu singing of Sweet Caroline, and for anyone present they will never forgot it because literally the entire student body grade 1-12 displayed a synergy only a true community could. Likewise, there were many memorable moments for all Lower, Middle and Upper school Gators. #GatorStrong #goSRgators

The Stone Ridge Cross Country program has a long and successful history competing in the ISL – a legacy growing even stronger through the leadership of this year's senior class. Over the past four years, the senior leaders on the varsity cross country team have brought a hard-hat mentality to the program. In fact, their simple approach of improving every day has become the mantra of the program, with each athlete on the team pushing and supporting each other to simply be their best. This tactic has been so successful that team members are improving their race times from practice to practice and race to race throughout the season.

According to AD Jason McGhee, "It's been really great to watch these seniors grow over the past four years. The coaches have supported them, of course, but the student-athletes have embraced the opportunity and challenged themselves every step of the way, especially when there were setbacks or adversity. I couldn't be more proud of what they've accomplished as leaders. This season the team is off to a great start, and I can't wait to see where the team finishes this year."

While a legacy is not what they set out to accomplish four years ago, it's what they will be able to look back on as they wrap up their senior seasons and become successful alumni. Led by Genevieve DiBari '18, Isabelle Barnidge '18, and Maddie Rodgers '18, this group of seniors also inspired the creation of the Middle School Cross Country program as well three years ago. Despite only being in its third year of existence, the SR MS Cross Country program has solidified itself as one of the best in the area, so the future is extremely bright for the SR Cross Country program. #GatorStrong #goSRgators
