Boys basketball: Greens Farms Academy further enhanced its standing in the Fairchester Athletic Association by earning a trio of victories recently.

The Dragons (11-2 overall, 8-1 FAA) topped Hopkins 76-59 on Jan. 26. Hunter Eggers led the Dragons with 23 points, while Sean Obi had 16 points and seven rebounds. Matt Tate had 14 points and 11 assists.

The Dragons also beat Hopkins 65-45 on Jan. 22. Obi led the team with 19 points and 10 rebounds.

Featuring a rotation that's 10 players deep, the Dragons have had plenty of scoring options. Tate -- averaging 7.5 assists per game, good for second in New England Prep Schools -- has helped spur the offense with solid ball movement at the point position.

Girls basketball: After opening the week with a pair of losses to the Masters School, 72-34 on Jan. 22, and Rye Country Day School, 69-28 on Jan. 24, the Dragons bounced back with a victory.

The Dragons topped Cheshire Academy 40-27 on Jan. 26 as 8th grader Lexi Kimball had 10 points. Senior Meighan Grady and sophomore Lisa Johnson had eight points apiece. Grady also had eight assists.

Boys squash: The Dragons fell to the Canterbury School 6-1 on Jan. 23.

Senior Spencer Hartig, playing at No. 3, won in three straight games. Sophomores Scott Brown and Reilly Carter also had close games for the Dragons, but were unable to produce wins.

Girls squash: The Dragons shut out Holy Child 7-0 on Jan. 25.

Right from the start, the Dragons battled as No. 1 Charlotte Kreitler, No. 7 Kaitlin Ball and No. 6 Cole Vanacore earned wins.

On Jan. 23, the Dragons were topped 7-0 by Hopkins. Kreitler, a sophomore, and No. 4 Tia Carson, a junior, both dropped five-game matches.

Wrestling: The Dragons finished 3-1 at the FAA championships at Rye Country Day School on Jan. 26. The Dragons beat Rye 51-24, Hopkins 39-33 and Hamden Hall 51-27, but failed to top reigning league champion Brunswick, losing 54-21.

GFA senior Brandon Velez (152 pounds) and freshman Cristian Rivera (106 pounds) earned all-FAA honorable mention. The Dragons crowned one champion in sophomore Riley Grady at 120 pounds. Grady, now a two-time FAA winner, will look to become the school's first sophomore WNEISWA champion next month.
