Girls tennis: Greens Farms Academy defeated Bancroft School of Worcester, Mass. 9-0 on Sunday to win the New England championship.

Competing in the tournament's C (small school division) bracket at Westminster School in Simsbury, the Dragons rolled through the quarterfinals, semifinals and finals without losing a set. The Dragons defeated Canterbury School (New Milford) in the quarterfinals and Winsor School (Boston) in the semifinals.

This was the first year that the NEPSAC sanctioned a New England tournament for girls tennis. The field was divided into three divisions -- A, B and C based on school size. Forty schools applied and 24 were accepted into the tournament based on strength of schedule and season record.

Boys tennis: The Dragons ended the year on May 16 with a 4-3 win over rival Hopkins to improve to 8-2.

The match started with Hopkins winning at No. 1 doubles, but the Dragons responded to take No. 1 singles with Gabe Tishman grinding out a 6-4, 6-4 win. Eighth grader Brian Niguidula followed with a 6-2, 6-3 win at No. 3 singles for the Dragons.

Hopkins then went on to win at both No. 2 and No. 3 doubles. Trailing 3-2 with two singles matches remaining, the Dragons got wins from freshman Cole Rummelsburg at No. 4, 6-4 in the third set, and junior Kyle Wolfe at No. 2. Wolfe won 7-5 in the third set.

Baseball: The Dragons ended their season 7-10 overall (5-9 in the Fairchester Athletic Association) with a 6-0 loss to Hopkins on May 13.

Senior Jonah Singer led the Dragons with two hits.

Softball: The Dragons bounced back from a 14-2 loss to Holy Child on May 14 to defeat Convent of Sacred Heart 8-4 two days later.

Senior Sarah Young took the mound for only the third time this season, pitching in place of senior Brooke Cirillo, who suffered a concussion against Holy Child. Young's previous two outings were one-inning stints, but the senior tossed a complete game.

Young also drove in a pair of runs. Senior Avery Swett led the team with three RBI, while Jazmin Reyes had two RBI.

Boys lacrosse: The Dragons ended their season with a 13-3 win over the Hoosac School of Hoosick, N.Y. on May 18.

Senior Ryan Eckert led the Dragons with five goals and two assists, while Justin Arzi and Jack Mackle each scored three times. Max Tarika and Julian Cohen had the team's other two goals.

Girls lacrosse: The Dragons defeated Wooster 14-3 on May 15, then lost to Miss Porters 12-11 the next day.

Against Wooster, six different players recorded goals for the Dragons, with sophomore Charlotte Kreitler leading the way with a career-high six tallies.

In the loss to Miss Porters, the Dragons nearly fought back from a 9-5 deficit at half. They got within one goal with nine minutes left.

Eight different players contributed on the scoring end for GFA.
