with a Varsity Squash Recap by Trex Proffitt

The Girls’ Basketball team enjoyed the most successful season in school history, finishing the regular season with an overall record of 18-2, capturing the Lancaster-Lebanon League Section 5 Title with a 9-1 record, and qualifying for the L-L playoffs. The Cougars defeated Ephrata (Section 2 champ) in the Quarterfinals 49-40 in front of a packed Parents Fieldhouse before bowing to eventual L-L champion Lancaster Catholic 59-43 in the semifinals. Despite the lopsided score, Country Day had a strong showing on and off the court as alumni, former teachers, and parents filled the stands to show their support.

Ranked No. 1 in the District 3 Class A Power Ratings all season, the Cougars defeated Veritas Academy 59-43 and Lebanon Catholic 60-32 in the District 3 quarterfinals and semis, respectively, to reach the PIAA District 3 Championship Game for the second consecutive year. Just like last year, LCDS prevailed with a thrilling 44-42 victory over Greenwood to capture the PIAA District 3 Class A Championship.

In the PIAA State Class A Tournament, the Cougars defeated Northeast Bradford 45-30 in the first round before falling to Susquehanna Community School 35-25 in the second round to end the season with an overall record of 23-4, the most wins in school history.

Having lost eight seniors to graduation — including 4 starters — the Boys’ Basketball team had many holes to fill in the lineup. The season started with great optimism as the Cougars won their first four games, capturing the LCDS Tip-Tournament Title with a 78-58 win over West Shore Christian. However, the Cougars would only manage to win three more games in an injury-riddled season to finish the regular season with an overall record of 7-15, 3-7 in L-L League Section 5. The overall record is misleading as the Cougars were competitive and in a position to win each night. In fact, LCDS lost the last three games by a combined total of just nine points. The Cougars finished the season ranked No. 11 in the District 3 Class A Power Ratings, missing qualifying for the District 3 playoffs by one spot.

The J.P. McCaskey Boys’ Swimming team finished the regular season with an overall record of 3-7, 0-5 in L-L League Section 1. With only seven swimmers on the roster, the theme of the season was quality versus quantity. Christian F. ’20 and Owen W. ’20 led the Red Tornado in every statistical category and enjoyed strong senior seasons. At the Lancaster-Lebanon League Swimming Championships, Christian placed fifth in the 50 freestyle (22.13) and eighth in the 100 freestyle (49.44). Owen placed third in the 50 butterfly (53.97) and seventh in the 100 backstroke (56.86). Both Christian and Owen were members of the 200 freestyle relay and 400 freestyle relay teams that finished sixth and fourth, respectively. At the PIAA District 3 Swimming Championships, Christian placed 17th in the 50 free (22.28) and 21st in the 100 free (49.64), while Owen placed 21st in the 100 butterfly (55.39) and 29th in the 100 backstroke (57.53).

****************************************************************************************************

The JPM Girls’ Swimming & Diving team finished the season with an overall record of 1-9, 0-5 in Section 1. At the L-L League Swimming Championships, Alexa A. ’22 recorded personal bests in all four events, finishing 14th in the 100 free (57.58), 13th in the 100 back (1:04.30), and was a member of both the 200 medley and 200 freestyle relays that finished ninth, one place away from the medal stand. Riley K. ’22 also posted a career-best time in the 200 free relay.

After winning bronze as junior, Evie A. ’20 placed 2nd overall to earn a silver medal at the PIAA District 3 AAA Diving Championships with a total score of 392.80. Evie competed in the PIAA Class AAA Diving Championships, and advanced to the final round of diving before finishing 16th with a total score of 336.20.

****************************************************************************************************

Competing as a member of the McCaskey Indoor Track & Field team, Arielle B. ’21 placed 15th in the mile run at the Pennsylvania Track & Field Coaches Association Indoor State Championships held at Penn State University March 1. During the winter season, Arielle set JPM program records in the indoor 3,000 meters (10:36.62) and 1,600 meters (5:11.85). Milana B. ’23 also set a program record in the 800 meters (2:27.57).
****************************************************************************************************
Wesley G. ’20 (6 goals, 13 assists), Thomas K. ’22 (1 goal, 3 assists) and Shaan T. ’20 (1 assist) helped the Penn Manor Ice Hockey team finish the season with an overall record of 7-11 in the Central Pennsylvania Interscholastic Hockey League.

The 2019-2020 squash season was very successful from a player development viewpoint. So many students came out to play we had to turn a few away this year, for the first time ever. Those who stayed involved had opportunities to develop all aspects of their game on court, in the classroom, and in the fitness studio.

We appreciate the time of our full-time coaches, Solomon Klombers and Trex Proffitt, with part-time coaches Mark Doody, Diane Wilikofsky, Gary Monge, Steven Frick, and Bridget Umble; and, a special shout out to Chris Wilson for expert help with our fitness portion of our workouts! We had 56 players in Middle and Upper School, and sent a record number of teams to the national tournaments, two to high school and four to middle school competitions. We cheered for the two best players LCDS has ever had as they compiled winning records. And we built up the pipeline for future seasons.

2020 was the first year all of our regular season opponents were other varsity teams. In the past we sought matches against JV teams from other schools, but this year we were strong enough to compete at a higher level. In the top nine girls squad, veterans Whitney Finney, Grace Gardner, Delilah Taylor, and Amera Hemming welcomed first year Grace Rutter and junior Caroline Spire, and first-time senior squash players Lauren Wassell, Abigail Gardner, Haley Morphy.

During regular season play, our varsity girls finished 3-8 against other varsity teams. Many of the losses were close, with five-game contests common. Three players competed in every match. Whitney Finney (11-4) and Grace Rutter (9-5) put in consistent wins at the top of the roster and played in every match. Newcomer Lauren Wassell fought hard in every match as the No. 4 player. Everyone else won at least one match during the season. At the national team tournament at Trinity College and Loomis Chaffee School, the varsity girls finished 69th in the country and sixth in Division V with a tournament record of 2-2.

Our young varsity boys team finished 2-8 on the season. Veteran varsity sophomores Eddie Proffitt, George Warfel, Luca Fimiani, Look Zook, Andrew Sigmund, Andy Jaramillo, and Ben Armitage were joined by first years Winston Thai and Brayden Fantazzi. This enthusiastic squad has two more seasons together and earned accolades for their sportsmanship and composure on court from our opponents’ coaches and players. They were all fighters and many matches were won or lost in the maximum of five games. The varsity boys finished 84th in the country, and fourth in Division VI also with a record of 2-2.

Girls Make Basketball History

Led by the most dominant player ever to don a Cougar uniform, the Country Day girls won their first Lancaster-Lebanon League section title, earned a District 3 playoff berth, and made the L-L Final 4 in a season of historic triumph.

Senior Ashanti Duncan became Country Day’s all-time leading scorer in their semifinal loss to Lancaster Catholic Tuesday night, topping the record previously help by Sydney Fasulo ’05.

Boasting four double-digit-average scorers in the starting five of Duncan, Genesis Meadows, Kaela Stankiewicz, Annabelle Copeland, and Anna Sotirescu, the team also has two 1,000-point career scorers in Duncan and Copeland.

The Cougars started out winning 18 straight, before a Copeland injury sidelined her for two games. Country Day finished the regular season 18-2 overall and 9-1 in the L-L League, Section 5. Their season continues at 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 21 at home when they host the winner of the Veritas-Lititz Christian game in the PIAA District 3 quarterfinals.

“This season has been amazing,” said Head Coach Hilary Waltman. “I think a lot of the reason we’ve been so successful comes down to the leadership of our seniors. There’s a maturity there, and a trust between the players and coaches that lifts the whole team up.”

While the girls balanced each regular season loss with nine wins, Waltman’s message to the team has stayed the same: “As long as you put in a great effort, you can be proud, win or lose.”

With their 51-43 win over Halifax in the District III-1A championship game at the Giant Center Feb. 27, the varsity boys became the first Country Day team to take the District crown. The next day at the Giant Center, varsity girls edged Greenwood, 35-30, to win the District 3 Class A girls basketball championship and earn a second school record. Next up for both teams is states, which means the fiercest competition and no rest for voices ragged from cheering.
