  • 2016 Fall Athletic Update

    Athletics
    Friends-
     
    It has been an extraordinary fall for MB athletics.  For the first time in several years, ALL of our varsity teams participated in post-season play.  Below are some highlights and a brief recap of the playoff season, we are so proud of our athletes and their coaches!
     
    CROSS COUNTRY-- Abby G. was selected for the “first team” on the All Class C Team. We had two girls compete in the state meet, Abby G. finished 46th and Julia G.  finished 107th out of 138 runners. This will be the fifth consecutive season that we have had at least one girl qualify for the state meet. 
     
    FIELD HOCKEY -MB Field Hockey completed the 2016 Division 1 season with a 13-3-1 record.  The team was defeated in the RIIL state semifinal by eventual state champion Barrington. It was the seventh straight season that the program has won 11 or more games.  Our seniors (Lauren B., Liza F., Molly F., Grace L., Tori R., Kayla U., and Caroline V.,) concluded their high school field hockey careers with two State Championships and an overall record of 64-8-4,  (a remarkable stat).   
     
    GIRLS SOCCER--The team ended the regular season on a hot streak, wrapping up their final two games outscoring their opponents a combined 9-0. They hit their stride at the perfect moment  performing at one of their highest levels during the first playoff game, beating West Warwick 2-0, earning redemption after a regular season loss against the same team. During the quarterfinal game against 2nd seeded Scituate, the team held strong for a full 80 minutes, a single goal by Scituate was the only flaw in an otherwise exceptional game. 
     
    FOOTBALL—In a quarterfinal showdown last Saturday, #1 seed MB, took on #4 seed Middletown.  From the start, both teams exchanged the lead several times throughout the game.  With less than two minutes to play and MB up by 2, Middletown marched down the field looking to get within field goal range to win the game. In an amazing heads up play, Eric D. intercepted the ball to seal the victory for MB.  Our 2-time defending  Division II state champs will play Mt. Hope in the semi-finals, Friday night, at Brown University at 8:00 pm. 
     
    BOYS SOCCER—As many of you know, the boys varsity soccer team won their first Div. II state championship in our school’s history.  Going into the final with an undefeated regular season, MB routed Mt. Hope 5-0 dominating the game from the first whistle.  Geoffrey G. was named the tournament’s Most Valuable Player.  Poom M., Euan S. and Drew Y. were named to the All-Tournament Team. 
     
    Please join me in congratulating all of our athletes.  For many, it’s an incredibly long season that requires a masterful balance of both work and play.  
     
    Best,
    Sarah

  • Faculty of the Year Barry Marshall

    Susan Cordina
    Each year, the Moses Brown Alumni Association honors a member of the faculty for his or her impact on the school community. Chosen from many fine teachers, the recipient is recognized as an outstanding professional, educator, mentor, and friend.

    Barry writes, "For me community is at the heart of theater and Moses Brown’s students, families and friends comprise that community.  I love that I am able to create theater across the different divisions of our school.  My 12th
    graders help 3rd grade write plays, and my middle schoolers perform those plays for the 3rd graders and their families.  Cross pollination creates beautiful flowers.
     
    When I came to Moses Brown 27 years ago, I embraced the weekly Quaker meeting whose silence gave me precious time for reflection and meditation.  I am touched by the rich egalitarian ethic that runs across every element of the school—students, staff, faculty and administration now all have a chance to partake in Quaker meetings. 
     
    Teaching at MB has taught me more about theater and people than I ever imagined."
