This past Thursday the boy’s soccer team suffered a tough 8-0 loss at the hands of Division 1 opponent Mt. Anthony Union. On the bright side the young SMS Bears squad played a strong first half, hanging in there by a score of 2-0 headed into the break against the top ranked Patriots. Despite the floodgates opening in the second half, assistant coach Christian Herzog remarked, “the team played some of the best soccer I have seen in the first half.” Hopefully the boy’s can take that good play into their upcoming game against Twin Valley this Saturday.
Last night the SMS girls soccer team defeated a strong Mt. Anthony team at home by a score of 5-2. In what was a hard fought battle the SMS Lady Bears managed to pull away in the second half with clutch late goals by Carolyne Claire and Olivia Holm. Congratulations girls! Keep it up!
Today the girls have another tough game away against Leyland and Gray.

SMS hosts Mt Anthony Union in the first soccer game of the season today at 4:30. Thanks to Dan Pawlak, the field has never looked better. Beauty day to come out and watch some soccer.
This past Thursday the entire SMS alpine program gathered for an all Alpine Cross Fit. This event involved dividing the kids up into teams and having them race to complete a series of exercises. These exercises included jumping rope, hurdles, body weight squats, sit ups, and burpees. After a competitor completed an exercise they raced around the field and tagged the hand of the next teammate to go. Every person on the team had to complete the exercise and run before the team moved on to the next exercise.
In what turned out to be a real nail-biter, with no one team managing to gain much ground on the rest the field, the team of Michael Fischer, Alex Abdow, Sophia Holm, Jenna Braun, Jay Poulter, Spencer Solaz, Marina Sckripnichuk, Maeve Fiske, and Mollie Goetze took advantage of the long final run to finally pull away, taking the victory. Great going guys!
After a long first week of testing and getting back into the swing of things on campus the U16 Women’s team headed down to Pikes Fall for a dip. Fun was had by all in the cannon ball contest!! Here is a couple pictures of the girls taking the plunge.
Yesterday, a handful of the alpine boys got off of campus in order to do interval training up the back side of Stratton. This workout started at Stratton-Arlington road and saw the boys run up 3.8 miles on the Appalachian Trail to the summit of Stratton. Along the trail the boys alternated between periods of two minutes of hiking followed by one minute of sprinting until they reached the summit. Congratulations Sylvan Kaufman on being the first to reach the summit.
Today for senior orientation the senior class headed down to the Deerfield river for a whitewater rafting trip. Luckily for us, it couldn’t have been a nicer day to be out on the water. Blue skies and warm temperatures made running the rapids, swimming, and having boat vs boat water fights a blast. Thank you Berkshire Whitewater for such a great day!
