Holderness Students Commit to Play College Athletics
Surrounded by friends and family, eight Holderness School student-athletes committed to play competitive college athletics. These students represent some of the top athletic talent in New Hampshire and New England and are testaments to Holderness School’s culture of academic and athletic excellence.
Those athletes who have committed to compete in college include:
The recent single-digit temperatures and mix of sleet and snow signal that the crisp days of fall are gone. Despite the best efforts of our athletic teams to extend the fall season, we’ve traded soccer cleats and football helmets for downhill skis and hockey sticks. We’ve even transitioned the hustle of daily life to our winter schedule in an effort to improve student sleep habits and take full advantage of wintry bluebird days. At a time when the surrounding environment is preparing for a period of dormancy, Holderness School is meeting this change in season with a smile and sense of energy -- this community blooms in winter.
That’s why, for most of November, Holderness students and faculty took part in an innovative Study Hall Pilot Program. Shaped with input from this year’s senior class, the pilot program made several changes to students’ evening schedules – all with the goal of improving their shared sense of community, sleep health, and general well-being.
