Field hockey coach talking to team.

After a successful preseason program, Vikings Fall Athletics are in full swing. All of our fall programs are off to strong starts. The athletes continue to work hard, and the results are starting to show. 

Boys Soccer Team Photo

Varsity Boys Soccer is off to a hot start; they remain undefeated at 4-0. with impressive wins over GCDS, MacDuffie, Canterbury and Gunnery. The team has looked very strong to start the season with balanced scoring and solid defensive and goalie play leading the path for the Vikings. They will look to continue their winning ways on Saturday against Wooster.

Boys JV Soccer is also seeing a successful start to their season. The team opened with a strong 7-1 victory vs. Hamden Hall. They sit at 1-0 on the season and look to move to 2-0 vs. St. Lukes on Friday.


Varsity Girls Soccer

Varsity Girls Soccer record is 1-1-1. The girls started off strong with a 0-0 tie against FAA opponent Holy Child. The team showed composure and possession skills throughout that were indicative of the hard work and commitment over the offseason and summer. The performance was highlighted by the exemplary defensive play of center backs Taylor Ansel `25 and Charlotte Black`23. The next match was a 4-0 win against French American in a dominant offensive game for the Vikings. Emily Cook `23 had a goal and an assist, while Anya Anderson `25, Sofia Acosta `25, and Sam Lockyer `23 added to the score sheet. The Vikings fell to FAA power Greenwich Academy 4-1 despite a strong team effort. Ava Bakes `23 was a dominant presence in the midfield to challenge the very physical Gators. Cook won and executed a free kick in the second half of play to put the Vikings on the board. The Vikings are looking to come out strong against Masters School in FAA action on Saturday, September 24 and earn their second win of the season. 

Cross Country is also enjoying some early season success. At the opening race of the season in a tri-meet with Wooster and Watkinson, the Vikings had three boys runners place in the top 7, with Lucas Rodrigues `23  coming in second overall, and two girls runners, Ava Gillespie `23 and Louisa Simon `23, also finishing in the top 6. Ava came back as our top runner, finishing first for King at the initial FAA league race, with Louisa, Nicole Berrera `23, and Chloe Zanga`23 also putting in solid performances. On the boys side, Lucas continued his strong start, finishing first for King and 14th overall in the league-wide event, running a 19:06 for the 5K.  Nathan Trepanier `24, Henry McEvoy `24, Andrew Beck `24and Nick Butler `24 were our other scorers. King will next take part in the challenging Canterbury Invitational this Saturday.

Girls Field Hockey team shot.

Field Hockey started the season 2-0 with impressive wins over Horace Mann and Hamden Hall before dropping a 1-0 thriller at King on September 21. When asked about her team this season Coach Emily Prince said, “They don't say ‘Work Easy.’  They say ‘Work Hard.’” And that is just what the King Varsity Field Hockey team is doing.  We are working hard every practice and every game to get better.  We are also having fun together and have enjoyed our team dinners, zumba classes and other bonding experiences!”

Football is 0-1. After displaying some early preseason success, the football team opened up a new era in the Metropolitan Independent Football League (MIFL) against last year’s league champion, Hopkins. While the Vikings stepped up their intensity and play in the second half, with big defensive plays and scores by Jack o’Callaghan `23 on the ground and Chris Ippolito `25 through the air from Freddy Melton `26, it was just not enough to overcome a 1st half deficit in the 27-13 loss. The Vikings played with heart, effort and enthusiasm all game long and will look to use this momentum as they travel to Long Island Lutheran on Saturday for MIFL game number two.

Volleyball continues to show it is a perennial powerhouse. Varsity volleyball is currently 3-0 in match play! We are continuing to put the pieces together and grow together as a unit. Hoping to continue our win streak with a couple of long trips this week before welcoming Sacred Heart Greenwich in for an FAA match next Wednesday at 4:30 p.m.

JV Volleyball is also making some waves. The JV Red Team is 3-0. While JV Blue is 0-1 but lookes to even their record with a home match yesterday afternoon.

Crew is always working hard prepping for a full October schedule. The team trains daily at the newly refurbished state of the art RowAmerica Greenwich.
