The winter season at George School has been marked by exemplary displays of skill, teamwork, and resilience across various disciplines, showcasing the indomitable spirit that defines George School athletics. Student athletes achieved personal, school, and conference records within the Friends Schools League (FSL) and Pennsylvania Independent Schools Athletic Association (PAISAA). As the winter season draws to a close, we celebrate not only the victories on the scoreboard but also the lessons learned, the bonds forged, and the memories made. 


Twenty-three student-athletes earned FSL All-League or Honorable Mention honors. Our swimming teams dominated the all-league selections with 19 team members earning recognition for their exceptional achievements.


The Swim Teams’ dedication and hard work propelled them to individual successes and contributed significantly to the collective triumph in the Friends Schools League. For the first time since 2002, the Girls’ Varsity team secured the FSL Championship, ending Friends Central School’s twenty-one-year run. The team earned a record of 9-2, setting five new George School Varsity records. The Boys’ Varsity team earned a record of 12-1 and set seven new George School records, winning their second consecutive FSL Championship by the largest margin in conference history. During the championship meet, George School Boys broke four school, pool, meet, and conference records in the 200 Medley Relay, 200 Freestyle, 100 Backstroke, and the 400 Free Relay, respectively.


Indoor Track

Boys’ and Girls’ Indoor Track witnessed the rise of a young and talented squad, led by freshmen and sophomores eager to make their mark. The team showed remarkable promise, culminating in a historic third consecutive PAISAA State Indoor Track & Field Championship win for the girls’ team and a third-place finish for the boys. Overall, the team set five school records and forty-four personal records at the championships. 




The wrestling team faced its share of challenges but emerged stronger, with young athletes stepping up and contributing. Their unity and determination remained unwavering. There were several new faces in the first two weeks of tryouts, with two new managers, a new student athletic trainer, and 14 new wrestlers. Anna Gluschuk ’25 had an outstanding season, culminating  in the girls’ national prep tournament, where she finished in the top 6 of the 126 lb division.








In basketball, both the Boys’ and Girls’ teams displayed commendable performances, with standout players making significant contributions on the court that helped both teams qualify for the FSL playoffs. Gianna Johnson ’24 earned a college scholarship to play at the University of Delaware and Sophia Martinez ’24 will continue her career at Skidmore College. Gianna was named to the FSL Honorable Mention team and Tristen Guillouette ’24 was named to the FSL All-League Team.




The Cheerleading team balanced participating in both the Boys’ and Girls’ Basketball games all while preparing a competition routine. The team participated in a competition on February 25, taking first place and receiving “hit zero” awards, indicating a flawless routine with no deductions. 






The Varsity Equestrian team participated in three competitions this winter, finishing 1st, 2nd, and 4th, with Ace Snyder ’24, Penelope Harding ’25, and Olivia Marshall ’24 all moving on to the IEA Zone Finals.




This winter, George School proudly introduced its newest addition to the athletic lineup— fencing. Athletes engaged in strategic bouts, wielding foil, épée, and saber to master the art of parry and riposte, fostering agility, precision, and mental acuity on the piste. En garde!
