Girls at George School enjoy the challenges of a wide variety of interscholastic sports. Most teams compete in the Friends Schools League against eight schools including Westtown, our oldest rival, with whom we share a spirited “Moose Point” rivalry for the Patterson Cup. George School varsity, junior varsity, third team, and developmental athletes compete in an atmosphere that emphasizes teamwork, respect for opponents, and passion for the game.
In the fall, the athletic fields are alive with cheers and roars as the field hockey and soccer teams compete. The equestrian team goes through its paces in our two riding rings, preparing for weekend competitive adventures. When the cross country team hosts a prestigious invitational meet each fall, crowds of students cheer the runners through Red Square and then hustle over to the finish line at the track. The tennis team fills our courts with the satisfying sounds of well-played matches. For those who seek to bump, volleyball spikes and rolls with the best. In addition to the enthusiastic fans, the football team is often cheered on by the GS cheerleaders, who proudly wear green and white on their sleeves and Cougar pride in their hearts.
In the winter, the Fitness and Athletics Center is a hive of activity. The basketball teams hoop it up as the performance gymnasium rocks with noise and enthusiasm. The swimming team enjoys meets and endures grueling coed practices in our 25-yard, eight lane pool. The winter track team braves the weather, forges mental toughness, and runs in a series of meets at neighboring schools.
The spring season provides a welcome return to the outdoors. Lacrosse and softball create excitement on the athletic fields, while the golf team practices and plays off campus. The equestrian team builds on its fall and winter success, and track is in full force.
