The girls lacrosse team had the entire school captivated throughout the spring. Following an appearance in the 2022 district playoffs, the 2023 team was ready to dominate, and dominate they did. The Spartans, led by Coach Conover, finished with a 17-1 regular season record. 

With a sole loss to Upper Dublin, the team cruised to their first league championship in 11 years, beating rivals Abington, Wissahickon, Upper Moreland, and even a team from Connecticut. 

Junior, Amelia Price  said that the season went “really well” and talked about the team’s tone-setting overtime win against Mount St. Joseph’s early in the season and how it was “one of the first games, and everyone played super hard.” 

Another important ingredient in any successful team is team comradery, and the Spartan girls lacrosse team sure had plenty of that. Price noted the team’s closeness and how they “grew a lot closer as the season went on.” 

The Spartans charged into the district playoffs as the number one seed and dominated their first game against Merion Mercy. Although they came up just short in their next matchup against Gwynedd Mercy, this will not be the last we hear of this team. 

Everyone in District 1 and the state of Pennsylvania (and maybe even Connecticut) should fear the 2024 Spartans. With rising seniors like league MVP and goalie Tess Talbot, Emma Yoder, Maddie McDevitt, Amelia Price, Fiona Rizzo, and Sam McDevitt, alongside the other rising players, such as sophomore, Shannon Silvius, the Spartans are not going away. 

Additionally, there is no doubt that senior, Shannon Meder has left a big imprint on this program. Shannon was an important part of this league championship team and will continue playing lacrosse at Millersville University. Congratulations to Shannon and all the members of the girls lacrosse team on a great season!

2023 was another great year for the baseball team. Led by Coach Primavera, the Spartans won some tough games throughout the season, including against Lower Moreland and Cheltenham, to finish the season with a 7-9 record and earn themselves a spot in the district playoffs. 

Sophomore, Owen Hastings, the catcher, acknowledged the team played some “great games” and, as a young team, there were “a lot of ways they could learn from the season.” 

A young team indeed, the Spartans will return with Hastings and stars junior, Brett Smith, sophomore, Matt Caruso, senior, Jack McKittrick, and many more to lead this team back to the district playoffs. 

Ultimately, this year, they fell to Pope John Paul II in the district playoffs but, nonetheless, had a great season on the diamond.

The 2023 boys lacrosse team finished the season very strong. The team, led by Coach Resch, finished with a 4-13 record, and had some unfortunate injury struggles throughout the season. 

Junior, Adam Fluehr referenced these early struggles and how the team managed to “keep their heads up.” Fluehr referenced Coach Resch’s message that the team should always be playing their best lacrosse in May and believes “we did just that.” The sense of brotherhood that has always defined the boys lacrosse team was very present. 

The tradition of a team barbeque was a season highlight for many, representing the team’s sense of community. 

The Spartans are definitely to be feared next year. The return of the junior Fluehr Brothers, Adam, and Gabe, alongside other rising seniors Tommy Coppol, Matt Hood, and many more, will lead to great success for the team in 2024. 

Great season Spartans!

The 2023 Spartans softball team had an amazing and historic season. Finishing with a 10-10 record, Coach Gehlhaus’ team clinched a spot in the district playoffs. 

Junior, Sophie Seslow acknowledged the “great season” and that the team performed great with having “two new coaches this season.” 

The team had some very big wins against rivals Lower Moreland and Abington. 

The team’s berth in the district playoffs was very impressive, and it was their first time in five years to make it to such a spot. 

Although ultimately falling to Villa Maria Academy, it was unmistakable that the Spartans softball team had a great 2023 season. 

With returning players such as sophomore, Ashley Shultz and Sophie Seslow, everyone should keep an eye out for the 2024 Spartans!

Another strong season is in the books for the boys tennis team. The team, led by Coach Wetton, improved significantly throughout the season. 

Unlike girls tennis, boys tennis competes in the spring, which may be to the team’s advantage, as many players ran cross country in the fall. Henri Kremmer (Class of 2025) acknowledged that everyone on the team “had a lot of fun” regardless of their past experience. 

Although many might think of tennis as an independent sport, senior, Julian Casabon-Aznar and sophomore, Eoin Anto showed the state of Pennsylvania their dominance in the doubles competition. Julian, the best soccer goalie in the state of Pennsylvania (in my opinion), paired with Eoin to earn themselves an impressive district championship. 

Not stopping there, Julian and Eoin made it all the way to the state championship match, where they fell just short. 

Although Julian will move on to college, the future is still bright for the boys tennis team, especially with Eoin at the lead. Great season all around, Spartans!



Another great season is in the books for the Spartan track & field team. The team, led by Coach Mazurek, had great success throughout the season. Starting the year running in cold March weather, the team quickly became very close. 

Freshman, Murphy McGranaghan attributed the “inclusive environment of the team” as a direct contributor to the team’s success. All athletes on the team saw a significant impact throughout the season. 

Senior, Julia McBride, like usual, made it all the way to states in the pole vault. 

Junior, Libby Kline earned a third league championship in the high jump. Yeah, do the math; she’s won every year! Libby earned herself a spot in the district long jump competition. 

Sophomore, CJ Johnson ran his way into the 400 and 200-meter races at the district, where he performed awesomely, especially in the 400m, where he broke 50 seconds! 

With such a big team, it is impossible to note all the amazing achievements of every athlete on the team, but there is no doubt this success will continue. 

One aspect of the team to keep an eye on for the spring 2024 would be the Spartans 4×400 meter relay team. This very young team, composed of sophomores, Vincent Kerper , CJ Johnson and freshmen, Caden Bronson, and Keder Moore, were only two seconds off from qualifying for districts. 

I’m not a betting man, but if I were, I would put everything I had into this group returning stronger and faster to put up some stunning times in 2024. Great season Spartans!

There are few better experiences in our school than Unified Track & Field. 

Athletes from across many grades and experience levels came together to have a great 2023 season. Led by Coach O’Neill, the Spartan Unified Track & Field team saw great success.

 Junior, Danny Bailey acknowledged how everyone “finished with a medal.” There is no doubt everyone on the team had fun, and Danny especially focused on how the “practices after school were the most fun by a mile.” 

As you can tell, the Unified Track & Field team is a great environment for athletes to exhibit their skills, as they did all season long. Great work, Spartans!
