Rowing:  The Holy Ghost rowing team competed in their final two regattas of the season in Princton this past weekend, the aptly-named Philadelphia Frostbite and the Bill Braxton Memorial Regatta. Both races featured regional school and club teams, including local rivals such as Hun, Peddie, and St. Joe’s Prep, as well as powerhouse club programs. At the Frostbite, where temps in the morning started in the mid-20’s, HGP’s two varsity fours both placed third in their heats. The “A” boat placed 12th / 40 overall, just 2-3 seconds behind Philly rivals Judge, Radnor High School, the Hun School, and other teams they’ll be aiming to beat this spring.

At the Braxton Regatta it was time for the new rowers to shine – HGP’s novice eight placed sixth of 26 in their time trial, earning them a spot in the finals. In the finals, they placed 3rd – a great finish to a long fall. After two races already, four of those rowers – all freshmen – then jumped in another boat and raced for a third time. In their four they placed second in their heat, setting them up for a fantastic spring season. HGP’s rowers are looking forward to some well-deserved time off now, before heading indoors to put in the work before their spring season starts.

SoccerCongratulations to the 2017 BAL All League Selections!  First Team: Connor Fife '18, Alex Finney '18, Nkosi Graham '19, Sasha Rubinstein '18; Second Team: Brendan Eagen '18, Cole Martillotti '18, Ethan Ruppersberger '19, Tyler Weimert '20.  Special Congratulations to HGP Senior Connor Fife, who was named Independence Division MVP for the second consecutive year.  Congratulations to Coach Ken Lawson '91 - BAL Coach of the Year!
