Varsity boys’ soccer and varsity football play games at home this week
In his latest blog, Lawrence Academy Head of School Dan Scheibe coined the phrase “peak performance season” to describe mid November, writing, “It doesn’t matter whether the conclusion is a 45-second music performance, a 60-minute championship game, or a 2-hour sit-down exam, these moments are full of energy and possibility.”
This week, following LA’s successful Fall Arts Showcase, and while students prepare for final fall academic commitments, that energy and possibility will again be physically incarnate as the varsity boys’ soccer and football teams prepare to face NEPSAC opponents in playoff action:
- Saturday, Nov. 21, the boys' soccer Spartans will host Kimball Union Academy in the NEPSAC semifinals on the Shumway Fields at 12:30 p.m.
- Saturday, Nov. 21, the football Spartans will host Suffield Academy in the Wayne Sanborn Bowl (NEPSAC championship game) on Murbach Field at 1:00 p.m.
- Should boys' soccer advance, the NEPSAC boys' soccer final will be held on Sunday, Nov. 22 at the Brooks School in North Andover, Mass at 10:30 a.m.
Looking at the week, and enjoying the prospect of seeing a coda added to another successful fall athletic season, LA Athletic Director Kevin Potter said, “The LA athletic department beams with pride as the soccer and football teams qualify once again for the New England Tournament.
“Both teams have worked tirelessly to find success on the field and build school spirit and community. Congratulations to both the coaches and players - we look forward to watching you play in post season games.”
The biggest of all Spartan fans, Mr. Scheibe, added, “It's a privilege to be able to practice and play on at this time of year—and an even greater privilege to be able to host postseason games.
“We look forward to some exciting times for our school, for our teams, and for independent school athletics.”
