Congratulations to Taft’s Girls’ Varsity Cross-Country runners who, for the second consecutive year, earned a spot on the podium at the Division I NEPSTA Cross-Country Championships. The Rhinos finished in 3rd place overall, thanks to stellar performances by Charlotte Murphy ’25 (4th place) and Kate Cicchetti ’24 (8th place). Their top 20 finishes earned them both All-NEPSTA honors again this year. A great race by Annabell Sorensen ’23 (22nd place) and solid pack running by Rina Kurihara ’24, Sydney Grogean ’24, Leyla Zhaksybek ’23, and Lena Rukkas ’23 ensured the 3rd place finish out of the 14 schools and 100 runners.
More congratulations are in order for Taft Varsity Field Hockey as they will begin their postseason play on Wednesday, November 16, at home on Camp Field against Loomis at 2:15. They finished the season with an overall record of 15–1–1 while going undefeated in league play, beat Hotchkiss 5–0 on Hotchkiss Day, claimed the Founders League Championship for the first time since 2005 as well as the Western New England Championship, and earned the No. 1 seed in the NEPSAC Class A Tournament. Props to Coaches Ann Bell and Jillian Danaher.
