Winter was an exciting season for Forman Athletics! The Alpine Ski Team competed at the highest level ever, and Boys’ Varsity Hockey had an historic run as well.
“Hockey had a great season,” Athletic Director Scott McCarty ’76 said of the team’s 13-7 record and Tommy Gramando ‘16 passing 100pts for his career. “This was a culmination of a few things: a good number of players were four-year Forman students and had been playing together for a long time. They know each other well and know how to play together. The team also really worked hard this year for success.”
The Girls’ Varsity Basketball team made it to the Housatonic Valley Athletic League (HVAL) Quarterfinals before they fell 38-51 to The Harvey School. Still, two student-athletes from the team made the New England Preparatory School Athletic Council (NEPSAC) First Team: Lacey McCaw ’16 and Dani Oddo ’19. Oddo was also named to the All New England girls’ basketball All-Star Team and competed in the annual “Super Sunday” game at Noble and Greenough School. Boys’ Varsity Basketball had a solid season. Qualifying for the league tournament. Unfortunately, losing to Harvey in a hard-fought quarterfinal game 52-44.
