Middle School

Girls MS Basketball

The Girls MS Basketball team had an incredibly successful season, ending with a 14-1 record. It was amazing how much they grew and worked together as a team. By the third game, all team members had scored, and by season’s end all players had scored in the double digits. Highlights on the season include winning the Hackensack Memorial Tournament for the second time in three years, and of course sweeping our toughest opponents: Roy Brown, Montclair Kimberley, and Teaneck Charter. The only loss came on a buzzer-beater in Maywood to a very strong team. We had battled from being down 9 points to taking a 5-point lead, but lost it in the final minute. Eighth graders Karina Pink ’23 and Montana Nicks ’23 led our team in scoring and assists and were tremendous leaders and team players. All of the 8th graders, including Sofia Robertson ’23, Raina Saini ’23, Sydney McKoy ’23, and Ava Opper ’23, made significant contributions to the team. The sixth and seventh graders also played a strong role this year and look to become leaders next season. A terrific season overall for the Middle School girls and a bright future for Bulldog basketball! 

Boys MS Basketball—Blue Team

With six sixth graders and seven seventh graders, these young Bulldogs played each game with tremendous determination and a feisty spirit, even as they faced opponents that were sometimes older and taller. The sixth graders brought much toughness, quickness, and energy to the squad. The seventh-grade players brought in a wealth of fire, determination, and experience to the Bulldogs. The only returning players from last year’s team, Rhys Bowie ’24 and River Smith ’24, helped to anchor down the guard position along with other exciting players such as Alex Soracchi ’24, Aaron Harrison ’24, and Lenny Park ’24. The “Boys on the Block,” Carson Reinhardt ’24 and Miles Krieger ’24, brought rebounding tenaciousness and aggressiveness to anyone who dared to play against them! Finishing with a team record of 4-7, the young Bulldogs played hard, were willing to be coached, and learned some important philosophies and strategies of the game of basketball.

Boys MS Basketball—White Team

The White Team had another strong season, finishing with an 11-2 record. The team was deep and balanced, with as many as 10 players scoring in several games. In almost every game, the Bulldogs controlled the boards and played suffocating half-court defense accompanied by the occasional press to create even more turnovers. Two notable highlights: first, getting revenge at the Buckley School, the only team to beat the Bulldogs a year ago; and second, finishing undefeated at home. This marks the white team’s third straight year without a loss in the historic Silberfein Gymnasium. A strong group of current sixth and seventh graders from the blue team will make up next year’s squad.

Upper School

Boys Varsity Basketball

The Boys Varsity Basketball team had an outstanding season, capturing the league championship for the fourth consecutive season. This was also second consecutive year for going two rounds deep in both the County Jamboree and State Playoffs. Major individual milestones were achieved by Jordan McKoy ’19 for becoming the second leading scorer in school history and gathering 1st team all-county honors. Judah McIntyre ’19 was voted 3rd team all-county and set a school record for career assists. The top defenders included Aidan Pink ’21 and Jayden Lemond ’22. With a strong group of underclassman, including David Mager ’22, Tyler Koutros ’20, Noah Pean ’21 and Harry Ruff ’20, the future is looking bright.

Girls Varsity Basketball

The Girls Varsity Basketball team finished the season 5th place in the league with a 10-13 overall record. With such a small number of girls in the program, the dedication and perseverance of each person was important. Four-year players Ryan Rodgers ’19 and Mya Most ’19 put forth their best effort this season to finish their basketball careers on a good note. For this team, the wins and losses were less important than the lessons learned and relationships developed along the way. These girls committed to making themselves better athletes, and their hard work paid off. Sidney Conner ’20 was an incredible addition to the program this year, and because of her positive attitude and work ethic she received the Coaches’ Award. Caroline Yaffa ’20 stepped up and led the team with 44 3-pointers on the season. Our Most Valuable Player was Ryan Rodgers ’19, who led the team in points, rebounds, free throws, and blocked shots, and who received 1st team all-league honors. Sidney and Caroline received 2nd team all-league and Mya Most ’19 received all-league honorable mention.

Indoor Track

Indoor Track’s exciting season saw 16 total school records broken: eight individual and eight relay records, with nine of the records broken by the boys and seven by the girls.


On the boys’ side: Jeremy Bronstein ’19 is now the record holder in the 800, 1000, 1600, 3200, and in the sprint medley relay as the anchor leg. Alec Hoffman ’19 and Jeremy each broke the longest-standing records, held since 1985. The team finished 2nd in the State Group Relay Championships and 3rd for Individual Group Championships. Jeremy was 1st team all-league (3200m) and Alec was 2nd team all-league (triple jump). Both also finished with state honors. Jeremy finished 2nd NPB (Non-Public B) all-state in the 800 and 1600, and Alec was honorable mention in the high jump. Jeremy was also 2nd all-county in the 1000.


On the girls’ side: Caroline Lee ’20 broke two individual records (55m, 200m) and became #3 on our all-time list in the 200. She also made the all-time list for long jump at #6. She was an all-league honorable mention for the 55m. Linsey Lam ’22 broke the school record in the pole vault and is all-time #1 at D-E. She was all-league honorable mention. India Marseille ’20 was the only girl to advance in the state finals, placing 4th in the shot put.
