Led by Madi Huffman's 10 points and 11 rebounds, the JV girls won their second game of the year. Ellsworth Sullivan sparked an energetic second half for the Wildcats with 6 third-quarter points all earned on drives through traffic to the basket. Sullivan added seven rebounds and three steals. Celia Sandoval was seemingly everywhere on the court, leading the fast break and hustling after 9 rebounds. The team continues to improve on both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball and the bench was highly energetic, tipping the tide of the game with two raucous new cheers. —Coach Lammers and Huseman

Swimming Highlights

Varsity Swimming – Middle School Meet 

Fri, Jan. 10 – CDS vs Providence Day and Cannon School

15 Middle Schoolers from Carolina Day competed against Providence Day and Cannon School. Louisa Koon was our only first-place swim in 50 Breast with a time of 36.28. She also placed second in the 100 IM, taking (-13.17) off her previous time. Our only other second-place finish was Charlie Pommerer in 200 Free. He shaved (-13.98) off his previous time. This was one of the most exciting races of the meet, as he finished:31/100 of a second in front of a Cannon Day swimmer. Charlie would pull ahead on the even number lengths, and the swimmer would get closer to the odd lengths. After 8 lengths we came out on top. Gibby Curwen finished in fourth place in this race. For the girls in the 200 Free Audrey Alexander finished in third place. We had a strong showing in the Boys IM as Ryan Copenhaver finished third with a solid swim taking (-5.40) off his previous time. Dale Garner finished 5th in the IM. We had 9 swimmers competing in events #7 & #8. Our highest finish in both of these events was 5th place. Sally Quarrier finished in 5th and took (-0.98) seconds off her time. Maia Kiiss finished in 13th place, putting her in the middle of the event but took an impressive (-3.69) seconds. As one of the younger swimmers at this meet, this is quite notable. Nathan Flaherty and Robbie Wade finished in 5th and 6th place. Robbie dropped (-1.28) seconds from his previous best. Anthony Nolletti swam this event as well, and it was his first-ever swim race experience. It is always exciting to see a new swimmer join in the competition. In Event #9 and #10, 50 Fly we placed well. Hazel Chernosky finished in 3rd place. Ryan Copenhaver finished in 4th place. Events #11 and #12, 100 Free had Dale Garner and Brayden Wilson each taking (-3.35) seconds and (-2.31) seconds off their previous times. Event #13 and #14, 50 Back had Charlie Pommerer finishing in 5th place, but taking (-12.67) seconds off his previous time. Miai Kiiss was our top finisher in 10th place. Event #15 and #16, 50 Breast was the only event we won a first place. Louisa Koon swam an impressive 36.28. Her closest competitor was over 3.0 seconds behind.  Sally Quarrier finished in fourth dropping (-2.78) seconds. Another huge improvement in this event was Addison Copenhaver. She dropped (-5.37) seconds. For the boys, Nathan Flaherty and Robbie Wade placed 6th and 8th respectively. Great job everyone!  —Coach Kathy Rabenold
