After returning from the first Florida training trips since 2019, the regular season has started for many of our King spring teams.
Varsity Baseball kicked things off, on Thursday, March 30, with an incredible come-from-behind victory over Rye Country Day School. After trailing 9-3 in the sixth inning, the Vikings scored seven runs over the final two innings for a thrilling 10-9 win! View recent photos from baseball here.
Varsity Girls Lacrosse followed up, on Friday, March 31, with a big 18-3 win over league opponent The Harvey School in the home opener for the Vikings. Great goal play and defense set the tone with ten different Vikings scoring! View photos from Girls Lacrosse Vs. Harvey here.
Varsity Boys Lacrosse dropped their opener, on Saturday, April 1, to a very tough Canterbury School squad but showed incredible fight and determination in the second half holding the visitors to only four goals. View photos from Varsity Boys Lacrosse Vs. Cantebury here.
Varsity Baseball was welcomed at Canterbury two days later, on Monday, April 3, for a non-league game. Although the team came up short 8-4, the Vikings built up positive momentum for the start of FAA play by getting the bats going late in the game with multiple base runners each inning.
The biggest day so far for the spring saw 10 King teams in action on Tuesday, April 4, including the start of Middle School play! Shutouts were wild at home, as Varsity Softball took down Greenwich Country Day School (GCDS) 13-0, and Middle School Red Baseball took it to New Canaan Country School (NCCS) 10-0! Middle School Girls Lacrosse was at home for their first game of the year and came away with a well-played 6-3 victory over New Canaan Country School! Middle School Blue Baseball was the only team to travel to NCCS, the team came up just short in the final inning, falling 4-3.
After a rainout over the weekend, Varsity Baseball got back on track with a big 9-3 FAA league win on the road at St. Luke’s School! Senior Jonathan Decker ’23 kept his incredible pace going with his fourth home run in the first four contests of the year! JV Baseball was also on the road, at Hamden Hall, and although filled up the stat sheet at the plate, fell 13-9 to the Hornets.
Our Upper School Tennis teams also had their first matches of the season on Tuesday, April 4, with Varsity Girls and Varsity Boys playing GCDS, JV Girls playing Rye Country Day, and JV Boys taking on St. Luke’s. The Varsity teams each had outstanding and competitive matches, with many spots going to third-set tiebreakers, but they came up just short against the Tigers. Boys JV had an exciting match that came down to the last point, defeating the Storm 4-3! The Girls JV match was also extremely close in a 4-3 loss.
Varsity Boys Golf and Varsity Boys Lacrosse were the only teams to play on Wednesday, April 5. Lacrosse used a strong performance on both ends of the field and outstanding goalie play to earn their first win of the season, 8-4, on the road at Suffield Academy. Golf fell on the road to non-league The Hotchkiss School and will look to bounce back on Monday, April 10, against Brunswick School.
