As fate would have it, Waring and St. Andrews would draw each other again in this year's NEPSAC first round match. Only this year there would be no last minute heroic performances reminiscent of last year's match up, where Waring fought back from being down 4-0, tieing the game late in regulation, winning the game in penalty kicks... No, the scoreline would read much different, as St. Andrews had something to prove after last year's defeat, and they did it in a dominating fashion.
Adrienne Ogle (’11) has been awarded the Pamela Daniels Fellowship at Wellesley College. The fellowship allows for seniors to fund their own personal projects to develop and solidify their identity as “maverick scholars”. Each year students are chosen for this prize but in the true spirit of innovation, Adrienne entered the pool with a group of fellow filmmakers. The six students are the first group to be chosen for the fellowship and their proposal focused on the power and stimulation of collaboration. We are looking forward to seeing the series of short films created by Adrienne and her classmates, a project that with the help of the $3,500 prize money will bolster their experience as professional filmmakers.
Coach Jan Lindsay knew what she was doing when she subbed Sammy Stewart (Alum '07 and Boy's Assistant Coach) into the game with under 10 minutes to play in the second half. Sammy scored on a beautifully placed corner kick by Dean of Faculty, Francis Schaeffer, to put the faculty up 1-0. "I remember watching Sammy play when he was a student at Waring," said Lindsay. "He was a special player, and obviously still is. We needed a spark, and Sammy provided it for us."
For the MBIL and IGC champions, it was a tough defeat. "We had high hopes this year," said senior Nat Lyman.
The faculty are now 3-0 in the annual series.

The Waring School boys varsity soccer team defeated Cambridge School of Weston 3-1 on Wednesday to become champions of the Mass Bay Independant League. Waring won the title at home in front of a packed crowd of Waring and CSW fans. Senior Isaac Stuart scored once and junior Aidan Wood scored twice, while recording an assist, all within the first half. The second half saw Waring continue to dominate the game with the majority of possession as senior Nat Lyman and junior Nick Wigglesworth controlled the middle of the field. The Waring defense, led by seniors Adrien Hupin and Isaac Ogle, snuffed out all but one late CSW attack. A true team effort, every member of the team played a role in the victory.
