Saturday’s Festivities

Hello all! 

I’m sorry this is so late, but the remainder of our weekend was taken up with holiday preparations, and what wasn’t given over to that, I was grading essays. So, you know, the usual stuff associated with my day job. 

Real quick reminders and then on to the important stuff: 1) We’re on hiatus till February! Good luck to the GSC teams! (I know who I’m rooting for this year, but then, I am biased). 2) Dues! Many of you have paid for the 19-20 school year, and for that I thank you. If you haven’t, please consider it! If you need more information, please let me know!

Okay. First, thanks to Sara and her crew for a great time! The food was great, and everything ran very smoothly, in spite of a few hitches. It was a great morning for everyone!

We had 10 varsity teams, and 14 j/v teams. Once again we welcomed a new team to the fold this week, the folks from Alvirne, who came to play, and as I’m sure you all found out, and played real tough, so congratulations to them for their first outing with us. I hope they’ll be back to join us again soon! Hanover and Merrimack tied with records if 9-1, but since Hanover is already qualified for the state tournament, there was no need for any tie breaking procedures, Merrimack took the qualifying slot for this tournament! This is the third tournament in a row where the home team has won the qualifying slot, which is a good omen for me for February. (Maybe). Anyway. On the j/v side, Fall Mt. A took home the candy bag, and overall stretched out a one win lead for Fall Mtn. for the best j/v of the year. 

Here’s how the rest shook out: 


Varsity J/V
Hanover 9-1 Fall Mtn A 9-1
Merrimack 9-1 Merrimack A 8-2
BG 6-4 Merrimack M 7-3

And the all important overall standings. A tight race at the top of the charts for those three “points” qualifiers, as we have passed the half-way mark of the season.
