Eagles Prepare for Winter Season

Eagles Prepare for Winter Season

The Fall Sports season is officially over and basketball and wrestling conditioning begin this week! Official practices will begin at the end of the month. The Bowling team will also begin visiting the lanes soon.

Eagles Soccer ended the regular season winning their third game in a row. Led by Michael '16 with five goals the Eagles were able to soar to a 6-1 victory against Saint Martin de Porres High School. Pedro '16 also had a goal and two assists. Dylan '16 had another great game in goal and Liam '16 continued to lead the defense.

GRA hosted Lawrence School in the first round of the LEC playoffs on Tuesday, October 15th.  A tense first half saw one of GRA's starters get sent off, only to have the Eagles rally for a goal just before halftime by Michael '16. After Lawrence tied the game midway through the second half, a tough call sent another Eagle off. Playing two men down, GRA's defense, led by John '15 and Dylan '16 held tough for the final 20 minutes of regulation and all 30 of extra time. After 110 minutes of play, the game came down to penalty kicks. The Eagles' tired legs didn't have quite enough to pull through, and Lawrence prevailed on PKs, 2-0. The loss ends the season for GRA. The team finished with a 5-7 record, and placed third in the Lake Effect Conference regular season.
