    Character Development in Athletics

    Emily Magnus
    The Holderness athletic philosophy centers on graduating healthy kids and recognizing that what happens on the playing fields impacts learning in many ways. Certainly Holderness cares about competitive challenges and winning contests but there is something far greater about athletics -- striving to be your best, working together as a team, and emphasizing character development. In the service of developing good citizens, Athletic Director Rick Eccleston announced the Carry the Luggage initiative last year and he is doubling up on the initiative this year. Below is last year’s post describing the award and how it came about.

  • 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.
