By: Bella Egress and Maddy Santangelo

Boys Hockey: The boys have attained a close bond throughout the season, which has helped them perform better as a team. With their strong morale and winning mentality, the boys hockey team has secured their title as state champions, which has only been achieved one other time in Conards history. 

Wrestling: After an extremely successful season, the wrestling team has fulfilled its goals of improving as a team and making it to states. Overall, after countless hours of practice and getting better as a team, everyone was able to grow individually and as a team. 

Indoor Track: As the track team prepares for Nationals, the captains are extremely proud of the overall progress and the number of amazing runners stepping up. For example, several top-6 finishes at the state and regional levels, as well as multiple national qualifiers. Additionally, captain Gracelyn William mentions how proud she is of the girl's team and is looking forward to seeing them carry the momentum of the indoor season into the outdoor season. Lastly, the track team is looking to defend their state title and better themselves this spring season. 

Boys Basketball: As the boy's basketball season comes to a close, the boys are pleased with how they played, and although they didn't make it to where they wanted to be, they played together as a team. The boys ended the season with a record of 18-7 and hope to improve next season. 

Girls Hockey: The Conard-Hall girls hockey team had an extremely successful season, where they had to make important decisions that brought the girls closer. Captain Varya Atsian said that despite having to practice at five o’clock many mornings, the team had a lot of fun each practice, and one of their favorite times was riding the bus together to far-away games. The seniors also mentioned that their senior night game was very special to them, as they were playing with a group of girls who became close on and off the ice these past several years. Although the season has ended, the team believes that they exceeded their expectations and that they have great potential for the future.

Gymnastics: The constant support the Conard gymnastics team had for each other and from the coaches helped the individual gymnasts and the team improve greatly throughout the season. The team found that their themed meets and practices and pasta parties helped bring them together and make the season more enjoyable. 

Girls Basketball: Conard Girls Basketball had a great season, finishing 21-5 overall. Two players, Emily Knowles and Callie Cosgrove, hit 1,000 career points, and the team advanced to the semi-finals in both the CCC Conference and State Tournament, the farthest Conard girls basketball has gone in 43 years.

Boys Swim and Dive: The boys swim and dive team had a very rewarding season with a thrilling win over Hall and multiple swimmers placing at both the CCC and state championships. 

 We can’t wait to see what our spring seasons bring us!
