Making History: Beyond Historic Firsts

I told the students assembled in Fuller Hall on Thursday morning that they were experiencing what will be called an historic era at the Academy. We have celebrated dozens of "firsts in school history" that have coincided with the 175th celebration of our founding. That morning in Chapel, we honored the members of our Math team who had placed first among all New England boarding schools in the prestigious and rigorous Math Madness competition. The mathletes were joined by athletes on four winter sports teams who were defending Division I State Champions: Girls' Basketball and Indoor Track, Boys' Indoor Track, and Alpine Skiing. Not only is this the first time in history that we have been defending champs in skiing, but it is the first time four teams have won championships in the same season (and six championships over the past three seasons). On those teams sat individual Division I Champions, as well, and two fall 2018 athletes had attained individual honors that week, which was what prompted my remarks.
