EHS Lacrosse Coach Greg Passineau put together a collection of links for anyone interested in attending an athletic summer camp:
The summer is a great chance to improve your skills in whatever sport(s) you enjoy playing here. Below, I’ve listed some summer camps you may want to look into attending. The two general websites each have a thorough list of camps for every sport, so I would recommend looking through those, along with the sport-specific ones I’ve listed. You obviously don’t have to attend a summer camp, but if you are able to, it can be a fun experience and really help you going into next year.
If anyone has any questions about camps or summer leagues in their area, I’d be glad to help.
Short sleeve shirts and sunglasses were on the menu for today’s home opener against Eaglebrook. Brendan O’Day and Dever Mack were again tasked with taking on the number one and two spots and they did not disappoint. Brendan closed out Eaglebrook’s number one player on the 7th hole winning 3up. Dever Mack won in similar fashion going 3up on the 6th hole and then halving the 7th hole to close out Eaglebrook’s number 2 player far from the clubhouse.
Veteran player Jack Couillard had the match of the day gaining and losing the lead until he arrived on the 9th green with a one hole advantage. He lost the hole by one stroke leaving his match all tied up. Things didn’t go as well for Andreas who picked up his ball halfway up the 9th fairway conceding his match after 7 holes. Andrew Zimmel suffered a similar fate ending his day on the 6th green as his number 6 opponent played more like a number one. Connor Herrera matched up in every way with his opponent. They even shared the same name. Connor and Connor battled back and forth with the EHS Connor holding a commanding lead coming down the stretch up two holes with two to play. Victory would slip from his grasp as he lost the last two holes ending his match in a tie. So with two wins, two losses, and two ties, the day ended with both teams all even.
The Varsity Ultimate home opener versus the Watkinson School was a great game to start off the season. After starting the game with a couple turnovers, the Pioneers found themselves down 1-0, the only time they would trail in the game. The starting seven responded nicely with rookie Brandon Watford throwing the first goal of his ultimate career to second year veteran Joe Forest. Gonzalo Chavez connected with Alex Marklyn for our second and third goals to take a 3-1 lead only to see a couple careless EHS turnovers lead to a pair of goals for Watkinson and a tie score at three.
That would be as close as the game would be as the home team settled down, completed passes and found the open receiver while also playing a tough defense. Eagle Hill took the half 8-4 with goals thrown or received by Kendall Clark, Logan Lindemann Cohen, Gonzalo, Alex, Brandon, Ridge Newcomb, and Jesse Jacobs. The Watkinson School was unable to get the disc into the end zone in the second half and Eagle Hill won 15-4.
