This year, Hackley Latin and Greek students once again competed with their peers across the US and around the world in a number of linguistic contests. Some of these occurred in the snowiest days of March, and we wondered whether they would take place at all!
Hackley kindergarten and 4th grades visited the Wolf Conservation Center in South Salem as a culmination to their ecology unit. They observed the four Ambassador Wolves in their enclosures, and even spied an elusive Mexican gray peeking out of its wolf habitat. Everyone agreed, though, that the best part was howling with the wolves!
On a cold and rainy day the Boys’ 4x800 meter relay team (Will Ballentine ’17, Will Crainer ’19, Fletcher Levin ‘18 and Onye Ohia-Enyia ’18) broke the Hackley School record on Tuesday that had stood for 6 years. The team ran a time of 8:21.68, beating the previous record set by Ian Parnell ‘13, Pietro Moran ’13, Luca Ameri ‘11 and Andrew Phillips ’11 (8:27.6) by over 7 seconds. Congratulations to the team and coaches for an outstanding performance in less than optimal conditions.
What started as just another Tuesday yesterday ended with three Hackley athletics programs coming home with league titles. Congratulations to our Girls’ Lacrosse, Boys’ Golf and Boys’ Lacrosse, which claimed the league’s top prizes with victories.
