Usually, the beginning of Spring coincides with gradually increasing temperatures. This year, that was not exactly the case, but Spring sports began anyway. Our teams, such as Girls’ Varsity Softball, Girls’ Flag Football, and Girls’ Handball, worked tirelessly to maintain undefeated or nearly perfect records.

First up, we have Girls’ Flag Football, one of the few teams with no male counterpart. The team made school history by not losing any of their twelve regular season games. They started the season with a few roster changes, ensuring that the team had a fresh start. An increased number of junior team members ensured strong leadership for next season. The captain and quarterback, Georgia McKay ’18, held a special place in the team’s foundation. There was a lot of trust riding on her decisions, and she executed them exceptionally. Her leadership and guidance was instrumental in the team’s undefeated season.

“The most memorable part of the season was going undefeated. On a more personal note, I’ve been able to lead the city in passing yards and currently in touchdown passes, which has been special for me,”Georgia McKay ’18 said. 

Next we have Girls’ Varsity Softball team, who won the division title for the fourth consecutive year after having an undefeated regular season. Captain and pitcher Anna Leidner ’18 played a major role in that success as someone with years of experience.

“Softball is a team sport, so everyone has to contribute in order to win. Learning how to do that has been a rewarding experience,” Leidner said. With many newcomers on the team, there was a bit of a learning curve in creating a new team dynamic, but all of their hard work clearly paid off.

Finally, we have the Girls’ Handball team. Handball is generally thought of as a ‘street sport,’ and not many people know that it is played competitively. The team consisted of seven starters and eight other team members. Because of the relatively small size of the team, the players developed a strong bond and sense of unity. Handball is not usually seen as a cooperative game, but the alliance beneath the surface was powerful.

“I learned a lot while playing this sport, such as one loss does not define us. We all have the capability to bounce back,” said Hellen Zhang ’18. This idea was clearly ubiquitous, as shown by the team’s undefeated season.

All of these Bronx Science teams worked incredibly hard to earn the distinction of undefeated and should be immensely proud of their hard work.

“The most memorable part of the season was going undefeated. On a more personal note, I’ve been able to lead the city in passing yards and currently in touchdown passes, which has been special for me,”Georgia McKay ’18 said.
