Way to Go, Dragons: Spring Season 2024 Wrap Up

Way to Go, Dragons: Spring Season 2024 Wrap Up

In spring, Kent Place offers flag football (varsity), golf (varsity), lacrosse (Middle School, JV, and varsity), softball (Middle School and varsity), Fundamentals of Volleyball (Middle School), and track (Middle School and varsity).

The flag football team showed nice improvement in its second year, with three wins. The players completed the first year of a two-year pilot program, on the way to flag football becoming a fully sanctioned NJSIAA sport.

Golf continued its success from last season. Competing in a combined Essex/Union County league, the team went undefeated in its division. The golf team won the Super Essex Conference Tournament and three players finished among the top 10.

Lacrosse excelled at all three levels: the Middle School team reached the final of the Middle School Athletic Conference Tournament; the JV players won six of their games, finishing with three consecutive victories; and the varsity athletes enjoyed a 14-game win streak that spanned more than a month. The team made it to the Union County semifinal, the Prep Tournament final, and the State Tournament semifinal.

Varsity softball was elevated to the Valley division following an excellent 2023 season, during which the team faced fierce competition. This year, pitcher Emma Geppel struck out 105 batters across 83.1 innings. Middle School softball also did well. Competing in the Middle School Athletic Conference, the players upset a higher-seeded team on their way to a semifinal appearance.

Track and field had great results at both of its levels. Middle School track saw seven athletes medal at the Middle School Athletic Conference Championship meet: in hurdles, distance, relays, sprints, and throwing. At the Upper School level, athletes achieved personal bests in all events. At the Union County Conference meet, Addison McGoey ’24 won the 1600m and 3200m races. In the final race of her high school career, she logged a personal best of 10:41 in the 3200m, earning her fourth place at the Meet of Champions.

Congratulations to all of our spring athletes on another outstanding showing!
