Boys' Varsity Basketball

Before this week we've played 5 games. This week alone we are playing 4! Can you say, "Get all the sleep!"

At the time of this print, we have already played 2 of those games. On Tuesday, we hosted Benedictine and won 82 to 56. Last night, we hosted defending state champs Miller School, in front of a packed house! This was a back and forth game that tipped in our favor 60 to 66.

This leaves us at 7-0 for the season and rankings hopefully come out next Tuesday and we will see how we do!

Have a great week!

 
Girls' Varsity Basketball

The Lady Dragons went 2-1 in the Boo Williams Christmas College Showcase Tournament. The girls defeated Tallwood High School and Armstrong High School before losing 46 to 42 in the championship game. Congratulations to Jade Roberts ‘20 and Alexis Maynard ‘19 for making  the All Tournament team.

The girls then hosted Miller School on Thursday night’s double header with the boys and fell to a talented Miller School team.

Varsity Equestrian

The MA Equestrian team competed at Stonegate Stables in Aldie over the Christmas break, with some excellent results. Team captain Salem Twiggs ‘20 took second in her jumping phase with a fluid round over a tricky course, while Kat Doherty ‘21, in the same division, was third on the flat. Isabelle Horn ‘21, in only her second show with the team, won her jumping! Congratulations to all riders on an excellent show!

The team shows this coming Saturday, January 12th in Gaithersburg, on January 27th at Madeira, and January 26th at Stonegate Stables again, where we also co-host by bringing our own horses. Our horses will go into a draw with other horses from which they are randomly chosen for each rider. It challenges the riders to quickly adapt to a new horse and tests their skills in a safe environment.

Varsity Swimming

The Varsity Swim Team travels to Fredericksburg Academy today for their first swim meet! Go Dragons!

Alumni News
If your team is already out of the play-offs, cheer on a former Dragon and the Indianapolis Colts. Pictured above is Mo Alie-Cox ‘12 making an amazing one handed touchdown catch this season. Mo graduated from MA in 2012 and went on to play basketball for VCU. Before trying out for the Colts, Mo had not played football since his freshman year in high school.
