John Nash

Veterans and newcomers at the both the varsity and JV level shined on the official opening day of the fall sports regular season on Monday.

On campus, the GFA boys soccer team raced out to a four-goal lead in just 16 minutes and never looked back en route to a 7-3 win over Harvey on the plush natural grass of Field 5.

On the road, meanwhile, the GFA girls varsity soccer team got three goals from a freshman and two from a senior while posting a 6-0 win over Rye Country Day, and two juniors and a freshman led the JV Volleyball team to a 3-1 win over St. Luke’s.

In other words, a very good opening day for the Dragons.
