27 members of the Class of 2011 will be playing sports next year and their accomplishments in other than sports PLUS the summary of the 2011 BLTF

Hoping that technology will work, the below link SHOULD take you to a chart which

  • catalogues that these young men will be playing 7 varsity sports at 23 colleges
  • more impressively the chart chronicles their contributions to Landon and the community (PLEASE NOTE: I am sure that here are omissions, understatements and incomplete facts; getting information from Landon.net is NOT easy and getting information from the boys during their senior projects was akin to pulling teeth without any anesthesia)
    • as the US president, student council leaders,  4 prefects and other leadership positions
    • cum laude, national merit honors, commended scholars, honor rolls, Latin and Economics scholars
    • leadership roles at Model Senate, Ivy MountProject Smile, MSA, Peer Advisors, and other Community Service organizations
    • editors of Landon News and Brown & White
    • participation in Hand BellsArt Competitions, the Concert Band, Bearitones, Chamber Singers
    • creators/directors of a one-act play; creator of a new school wide activity (the Bear Games)
    • recognition as extraordinary teens and other external/internal awards
    • plus a number of athletic awards
  • NOTE– THIS TABLE DOES NOT INCLUDE THE AWARDS THAT ARE DISTRIBUTED AT THE BACCALAUREATE AND GRADUATION CEREMONIES!

John Nichols has done a great job keeping track of Bears playing at the next level this season and has performed an extraordinary service to Landon by summarizing their work in the following table

The fates were  not kind to Bear alumni this weekend.  In the D-I tournament, the two Bear laden teams, Denver (Harrison
Archer
) and Duke (Josh Offit and Joe Tkac) dropped their semi-final games on Saturday.  In the Duke-Maryland game, a game with more stalling

than a 70’s era Vega, Josh Offit recorded one goal on 2 shots and got a ground ball.  Josh’s play was also instrumental in one of Duke’s early
goals.

The slaughter of the Bears continued on Sunday as Tufts (Nick Rhoads and Mark Findaro) sought to repeat as the D-III champion in its
rematch of last year’s championship game against Salisbury.  Suffice it to say that it was not close this year.  Nick Rhoads of  Tufts
recorded an assist, 5 ground balls and was 13 for 27 in face-offs in the D-III final.

Congratulations to Joe Tkac of Duke and Max Feely of Cornell who wrapped up their NCAA lacrosse careers this year. 

THANKS TO JOHN NICHOLS FOR HIS DILIGENT WORK ON BLTF
