Meet Bennett Close and Kelly van Hoesen. They had been rebounding weeks last week, amongst other things, all of which led to their being named Athletes of the Week for the week ending Feb. 17.
Welcome to Dragon Nation
Welcome to Dragon Nation!
Jack Conroy bleeds GFA red … and white and blue. A 2006 graduate, who took his wrestling prowess to Bucknell, returned home seven years ago and took over the Dragons wrestling program. Now he is New England Independent School Wrestling Association Coach of the Year.
Two Greens Farms Academy wrestlers and one coach left the 2018 NEISWA Prep Tournament with some hardware over the weekend.
Statistically speaking, the four senior members of the Greens Farms Academy girls basketball team haven’t offered a lot of numbers. Intangibly speaking, however, they’ve given everything they’ve had to the program.
Last week's Athletes of the Week have come a long way this season.
Greens Farms Academy junior Griffin Seyfried (Westport) and freshman Nico Provo (Stratford) won Western New England Prep School wrestling championships over the weekend at the Taft School.
The Dragon Nation Athletes of the Week, for the week ending Feb. 3, traveled long and far to earn their honors.
The Greens Farms Academy boys basketball program runs deep. Just consider last season when the Boys Thirds team went undefeated on the season. Many of those players make up the present-day GFA JV program which on Saturday remained undefeated on the season and won the FAA JV Championship on its own Coyle Gym Home Court.
It hasn't been that long since former GFA baseball and basketball player Mac Muller and Lexi Kimball saw each other. After all, the two just graduated in the spring of 2017.
