Fourteen years! I knew we could do it. We worked so hard throughout the season and it’s amazing to see the hard work pay off.

It’s that time of year again, Mawrtians. As AP exam weeks are coming to an end and finals are quickly approaching, let’s take a moment to remember the very successful spring sports season. Lacrosse, softball, track, golf, and badminton all did extremely well this spring, and all teams participated in championship games, matches, or meets. In fact, both the varsity golf and badminton teams won their championships! This is the golf team’s third consecutive season taking home the A Conference championship cup -- what an accomplishment! Varsity golf team member Sereena K. ‘20 excitingly recalls her experience of this season’s victory, saying “It was amazing to win, especially because this is our third time. The team and I were so proud to bring the [championship] cup home again.” In addition to the success of our Mawrtian golfers, the varsity badminton team also brought home their own A Conference championship cup for the first time in fourteen years! Way to go Mawrtian badminton! Varsity badminton team member, Esha G. ’20, shares Sereena’s excitement for the badminton team’s victory, saying “Fourteen years! I knew we could do it. We worked so hard throughout the season and it’s amazing to see the hard work pay off.” Both teams’ dedication to their sport and team camaraderie allowed for their recent success. Whether they were cheering their teammates on from the sideline, laughing off a mess-up during practice, or staying laser-focused on the game or match, our spring student-athletes worked together to do Mawrtian Nation proud. As the famous NFL football player Billy Bowman once said, “Victory is in having done your best. If you’ve done your best, you’ve won.” Congrats on an amazing spring season, Mawrtians!
