GA’s Ellie H. ’22 and her brother Alec Brunswick ‘ 26 sailed into history this past summer at the ILYA X-Class Championship held in East Troy, WI. Ellie skippered a boat to first place in the senior division while her brother crewed a boat to first place in the junior division. Funny enough, their counterparts in the boat were also siblings. Ellie had a great first season skippering at GA helping the team to a 3rdplace finish at NESSA girls championship/Herreshoff trophy.
GA's fall programs have been gearing up for the season ahead with two weeks of training. Whether on the Mianus River, running about town or on GA's terra firma, our rowers, runners, field hockey, soccer and volleyball student-athletes and coaches have been preparing for the end in mind. For many, GA athletics is the foundation of what lies ahead as a record number of seniors have made DI commitments for next year. For some it is their current sport while others will showcase their college commitment in the spring. But whether a college-bound athlete or not, we are all eager to see these GAtors represent!
