Girls’ Tennis: Hotchkiss, 4/30. “I guess it would be Hotchkiss. For over a decade we consistently defeated Hotchkiss. They have aggressively recruited the last 5 years and now rank about #2 in the Founder’s League. DA was soundly defeated by them during seasons ’09 and ’10. What will ’11 bring?” – Mr. Dickinson

Track: New England’s, 5/21. “[The] meet we work toward throughout the entire season across all our events is our only championship meet. Not only is it our goal as a team for the entire season to perform well at that meet, but it is also a great showcase for the sport of track and field that takes place right here at Deerfield.” – Mr. Schloat

Golf: Andover Invitational Tournament, 5/25. “For the varsity golf team the highlight of the regular season is the Andover Invitational Tournament, a five-member,18-hole team competition with eight of the strongest New England boarding schools, played at the historic Newport Country Club, one of the oldest courses in America. We won the event three years ago, setting a team scoring record that won’t soon be broken. – Mr. Albertson

Boys’ Crew: NEIRA’s, 5/28. “All of our racing during the season is in preparation for the New England Interscholastic Rowing Association meet… Based on a season of comparative results and margins the NEIRA seeding committee invites the top crews from New England to compete. This is the most important race for us because all crews in the league get much faster throughout the season and this is the final opportunity to demonstrate our speed.” – Mr. Hamilton

Boys’ Lacrosse: Salisbury, 5/18. “Our perfect season has hinged on this game for the last two years and both years we have lost. We have to be prepared for every game, but revenge against Salisbury is definitely motivation.” – Captain Bobby Osgood ’11,

Girls’ Softball: Stoneleigh Burnham, 5/16.“The Stoneleigh game is always really fun and exciting… my freshman year we won after 13 innings (our games usually last 7)! Hotchkiss was also very close in extra innings last year, so I’m excited to take a few more swings at their pitcher.” – Willa Gustavson ’12
