  • Snow Sports Athletes Compete for the Podium in Post Season Events

    Emily Magnus
    Snow sports athletes don’t always get the attention they deserve. Imagine training in the dead of winter, on the coldest and windiest days, often on the edges of darkness. They are a tough breed. They also travel a great deal, both for training and races; plane rides across the country are common and most weekend races involve missing classes and sleeping in hotels all over New England. On top of their rigorous academics, these athletes train long hard hours, get up early on weekends to compete, and relentlessly pursue ways to drop fractions of a second to pull ahead of their competitors.

    Instead of giving out awards to players who have made impressive goals or outstanding plays, Holderness plans to recognize the students who have stepped up and carried their team’s luggage. Athletic Director Rick Eccleston says, “It’s nice to win, but the students need to learn that it’s about participation and about working together to accomplish something greater than one person can alone. That’s what it means to carry the luggage.” The Carry the Luggage award winners are nominated by teammates and coaches. See the previous article here:

  • KC Carter ‘19 Scores Her 1000th Basketball Point

    Suzanne Dewey
    We are so proud of KC and her accomplishment of scoring her 1000th point while playing for Holderness. She hit the mark on our home court against Vermont Academy on January 17. For those who don’t know, scoring 1,000 basketball points is a significant feat for a high schooler and even more impressive as an eleventh grader. KC might be the first to indicate that hitting such a goal was the result of hard work, consistency, and the support of her coach and teammates.

On Monday, we caught up with Head Coach and History Department Chair Kelsey Berry to learn more about their victories.
