Rock Climbing:
12/11/2018 –
Our top three climbers with equal points were Laura S ‘19, Viv G ‘19 and Grace T ‘21. The girls climbed very well, outscoring the Bullis girls team 84-87. Our team was paired with The Heights boys team, who also defeated Bullis’ boys. We have a strong group that is off to a strong start this season, already exceeding their achievements from last year. Our team doubled in size this year and has embraced this new environment with a great attitude and camaraderie. The girls continue to push one another daily, and we’re hopeful that this perpetuates further successes throughout the season.
