SPRING SPORTS WRAPUP
HARD WORK. TRUE COMMITMENT. ACCOMPLISHMENT &StatsACCOLADE. Alone Can’t Tell Season’s Story
UCCESS IN sports is often measured by the numbers — wins and losses, goals and assists, minutes and seconds. It’s so much about the ESPN bottom line, the box scores, the stopwatch. Across ’Wick athletic fields and facilities last spring — and on the waters of the Mianus River and Long Island Sound — the Bruins, too, played the numerical game, earning their fair share of statistical success. Baseball players hit for average. Tennis players served up aces. Golfers made birdies. Rowers, runners, and sailors raced swiftly against the clock, the opponent, and the tides. The lacrosse team won a New England championship. Statistics, though, fail to tell the whole story of the spring athletic season for the Brown & Gold. ’Wick sportsmen shined through because of their willingness to work hard and commit to the competitive task at hand. They banded together to create meaningful memories and connections with their teammates that will far outlast any accomplishment or accolade achieved on the field of play.
