With the arrival of warmer temperatures and longer days, the spring sports season is off to a racing start. Afternoons are bursting with energy and enthusiasm as students began training for track and field, baseball, softball, tennis, sailing, rowing, and surfing. Teams are meeting with coaches and getting in shape for the athletic season.
More than 100 students signed up to participate in junior varsity and varsity athletics this season. Track and field coach Dan Bruni notes, “The start of sports season is hectic, but I’m excited.” With the weather improving each day, students eagerly anticipate getting active with their teammates.
The East End of Long Island presents Ross students with opportunities to learn nautical sports like rowing, surfing, and sailing from experienced coaches in a premiere environment. Surfing was first offered last year, and it has grown from a group of three surfers to 24, some of whom have never stepped in the ocean before. The rowing crew consists of 23 local and international students, most of whom worked to maintain their fitness training throughout the winter. They will soon be sculling in the waters of Sag Harbor. Sports present the chance for local and international students to join together, share their passions, and be a part of the community that makes Ross School so special.
The excitement this season is palpable. Let’s go, Cosmos!
