Abby Seeberger ’24, who won the Jody Veeder Richards Sportsmanship Award and the Most Outstanding Senior Female Award, was also recognized as the winner of the prestigious national Under Armour Women of Will Graduation Award, celebrating female athletes who exhibit the will to win, superior academics, positive sportsmanship, and strong leadership.

Charlie Hill ’24, who was named the Ware Award Winner and the Senior Male Athlete of the Year, also became only the second King lacrosse player ever to be recognized as a US Lacrosse All-American. This is an incredible accomplishment and a true testament to Charlie’s dominance on the field and to his commitment and drive to perform and compete at the highest level. He joins 2018 graduate Kelly Gouin as the only two Vikings to earn this prestigious national honor. His banner will be added to the walls of the US Gym for all future Vikings to see!

Hauben also took time on Wednesday to acknowledge two outstanding members of the Junior class, who were each named the New England Prep School Players of the Year for their respective sports. Junior Caroline Ellis ’25 was named the NEPSAC Class B Player of the Year for Girls Volleyball after helping to lead her team to an unprecedented 8th straight New England Championship! Didn’t hurt that the team also took home the FAA title as well. Junior Ashlynn Koons ’25 was just named NEPSAC Class C Player of the Year for Girls Tennis after she was instrumental in helping the Vikings win the first-ever New England title in program history back on Sunday, May 19, with a thrilling 4-3 win over top-seed St. Luke’s! Congratulations to these two Vikings stars!

Congratulations to all 2023-24 athletes who were recognized and to the award winners for their hard earned success! Our Viking student-athletes have spent countless hours this past year representing the King community with spirit, pride, and determination; and we would like to thank everyone for making 2023-24 such a successful year. 

King Boy’s Lacrosse ended their season in emphatic and undefeated fashion last Friday defeating Berwick Academy 11-3 to win the New England McCoy Cup Championship! 

Traveling north to neutral site Pomfret School on the Friday of Memorial Day weekend is never fun, but King’s big win and championship sure made the ride home a lot better! The Viking defense dominated the game early, helping King get to the half with a 6-0 lead. The offense was balanced and consistent, with goals by Ben Bradley ’24, Grey Wildman ’28, Alex Moskowitz ’27, Bruce Hopkins ’28, and Brandon Chan ’25. Cole Preschlak ’24 remained strong behind goal, allowing only 2 goals in 3 quarters!

Congratulations to the Boys Lacrosse team for their championship win! King was able to score its revenge after losing to Berwick in last year’s McCoy Cup final. This is King’s third trip to the title game, however, it is their first championship since the tournament was established in 1986! With the win, the Vikings wrap up a historic season undefeated at 19-0 and as FAA regular season and tournament champions!

Congratulations to the King Crew athletes who competed in the NEIRA Rowing Championships on Lake Quinsigamond in Worcester, MA on Saturday!
