Athletics

The Marianapolis education continues on athletic fields, across dance floors, and behind camera lenses. Each student must participate in two seasons of extracurricular activities every year. 

With over 17 varsity options to choose from, the elite, competitive athlete is in good company here. Students can learn a competitive sport for the first time, too, accessing JV and IIIs level options. And for some of our brightest scholars, the Math Team is the ideal venue for competition.

Many students use extracurricular activities to stay healthy - mind and body. Whether they take center stage in a dramatic production, or find spiritual balance through yoga, students grow in countless ways outside the classroom. For a list of non-competitive extracurricular activity options, click here

Results & Recaps

vs.
MacDuffie School
Win 60-42

Kualim Johnson '21 scored 19 points and Ehmil Johnson '21 added 13 as Marianapolis steadily pulled away in the second half for an impressive 60-42 win over MacDuffie in the second home game of the season for the Golden Knights.

     Ryan Martin '20 played his most well-rounded game, scoring 11 points while grabbing many key rebounds.  Senior co-captain Luke Lageman also delivered a phenomenal effort on both ends of the floor, combining an intense defensive presence with a host of offensive rebounds.

      Marianapolis jumped out to a 7-0 lead in the first two minutes before MacDuffie countered with a 16-4 run to take a five-point lead on a number of fast-break opportunities.  The back-and-forth first half ended with a one-handed fall-away circus three-pointer by Ehmil Johnson that just beat the buzzer for the slight advantage.

     In the second half, a small change to the zone defense clogged up the middle to great effect; and, a three-pointer by Martin midway through the half extended the lead to 12.  A perfectly-executed fast break from Martin to Danny Moors '20 to Ehmil Johnson proved to be the final blow and the Golden Knights coasted from there for the 18-point win.

     Marianapolis continues its home stand Saturday in a rematch against Northfield Mount Hermon.  

 

vs.
Rectory School

 

The Golden Knights took on the Rectory School in a scrimmage at Hale YMCA in Putnam, CT for their first home competition. While there were many great swims, some notable performances were H. Cao '21 in the 100m Individual Medley, A. Robert '20 in the 50m Freestyle, G. McGovern '21 in the 50m Backstroke, and R. Barnwell '21 in the 100m Freestyle.

As always, the coaches are incredibly proud of the hard work the swimmers have been putting in, though practices at the start of this week saw some of the greatest leaps in progress this season, particularly to the team's newcomers. Great work! Certainly, a good part of the team's successes today was from the great fans that came out to support the Knights. The team was very grateful for the enthusiastic encouragement.

The Knights look forward to their meet against Thayer at the Racquet & Fitness Club in Scituate, MA on Saturday. Go Knights!
