Congratulations to our George School athletics teams as they head into playoffs and for their successful fall seasons to date. “We had a great attitude as we came out of last spring season and started preseason. The student-athletes came in with more commitment and effort this fall season,” said Athletic Director Mike Bailey.
The varsity girls’ field hockey team had a tremendous season, climbing to first place in the Friends Schools League (FSL). They won all but two games this season; eight games as shut-outs.
