Winter Sports Round-up: March 1
March 01, 2021
TA has had a slow, steady and COVID-compliant start to its winter sports season…but the games are on! The alpine ski team is training hard at Pico Mountain and Storrs Hill three afternoons a week. Competitions started on February 9 at Suicide Six, where TA’s skiers turned out some strong performances. Last Friday at Bromley Mountain, the TA boys solidified their spots in the state championships for the fourth year in a row. Shout out to Jack Hastings (15th), Riley Burkins (20th), and Ben Acker (23rd).
Competitions began for basketball in mid-February, with our teams’ first games before the February break. As of March 1, the Panther girls are 3-2, the boys are 2-3. No spectators are allowed at games, so check out livestream coverage for home games on the TA YouTube page. Both the boys and girls’ varsity teams are on the road this week, heading to Windsor on Friday.
The Nordic skiing club is having a great season with over ten percent of TA students participating. The group skis TA’s many miles of well-groomed trails three afternoons per week. The club is recreational, not competitive, and students of all abilities are enjoying getting outdoors with one another.
