Head Coach Pat Lake P’24 reminisced on this past season commenting that this year’s group of athletes was one of the most disciplined, and talented teams that he’s ever coached.

“The boys were led by one of the most talented sprinting crews I have ever coached, including, Quintin Craig (Hill School record holder in the 55m), Jalen Grant, and Jake Voyner,” noted Lake.  

“The girls competed with heart all season and considerable talent,” continued Lake. “This was one of the most disciplined teams I have coached, and the captains - Adele Harris, Taylor Folk, and Sarah Kenvin - set a tone of positivity and hard-work and were tireless and dominant competitors.”

He also gave a shoutout to Georgetown Track and Field commit, Noah Toole ’22, who, while recovering from an injury, was an invaluable coaching presence for the young jumpers on both squads.
