Spring Athletic Awards Honors a Successful Season

Spring Sports Awards

As the 2022-2023 school year draws to a close, we stopped this week to celebrate an outstanding spring athletic season. The boys made great progress in their skills and fitness, celebrating their chosen sport every day with commitment and hard work. 

The very last day of the season this year was marked by Eaglebrook Day, and the boys played with heart and focus to the end. The afternoon of competitions began with variable rain and ended with a drenching downpour, but that didn’t stop the Cougars. And if they weren’t out on the field fighting hard for a win over the Eagles, they were on the sidelines cheering on their brothers, raindrops dripping from their noses. As the coaches recalled in the recap of the varsity lacrosse game, “The support from the Cardigan Brotherhood was unbelievable, as they could be heard echoing out the Cardigan hymn and engulfing the team as they celebrated the win to end the season and the year of athletics.” It was a moment to remember at the end of a season well-played by all.
