At the conclusion of each season, coaches in each FSL varsity sport hold a meeting for business and arrive at a sense of unity around which participants from the member schools are worthy of recognition for excellence in skill and sportsmanship they exhibited over the course of the season. Kai Haynes ‘20 (soccer), Lilli Wallace-Larkin ‘21 (soccer), Von Curry ‘22 (cross-country), Charly Avril ‘21(cross-country) received All-Friends Schools League First Team honors for their exploits. Clare Robinson ‘21 (soccer) and Dexter Zapf ‘22 (cross-country) were designated as worthy of All-Friends Schools League Honorable Mentionrecognition. Kudos to Kai, Lilli, Von, Charly, Clare and Dexter. (Shown photographed above, in this order, top to bottom, left to right.)
