Posted 11/16/2018 09:51AM

For the fifth consecutive year, the field hockey team has earned a berth to the Class B New England (NEPSAC) tournament. Coming off back-to-back New England titles, the field hockey team (9-7-1) is led by captains Samantha Davidson '19, Delaney Bashaw '19, and Reanne Burgess '20. Davidson was named ISL MVP and led the team in scoring. Bashaw and Burgess have been the anchors of a strong defensive unit and Steph Tamasi '19 has been an outstanding leader all year. 

In their quarter-final game on Wednesday, Governor's field hockey upset third-seeded Lawrence Academy on the road 2-0. Isa Brown '20 and Tamasi scored for Governor’s, and Bashaw made four saves in the shutout win. Governor's will now face second-seeded Rivers on the road this Saturday at 12:00 p.m.

For the sixth time in the last eight years, the volleyball team has earned a berth to the Class B New England (NEPSAC) tournament. The volleyball team (14-3) is led by captains Gracie Kenkel '19 and Caroline Gow '19. The combination of star setter Kenkel setting to Gow, the team leader in kills, has been a winning combination all year. Excellent back row defense, anchored by libero Makayla Boucher '19, helped transition the ball from defense to offense smoothly all season long. 

In their quarter-final game on Wednesday, Governor's volleyball defeated sixth-seeded Tabor Academy 3-0. Playing at home in a packed Alumni Gym, Governor's came out strong and took the first set 25-20. The second set was a tight, back-and-forth affair with Governor's coming through to win 26-24. The third started just like the second before Governor's slowly pulled away to take control, eventually winning 25-19. The team will hit the road on Saturday to face second-seeded Pomfret at 1:00 p.m.
