Nils won his first career Mt. Institute Ski League race with great skiing in the opening meet last Wednesday.

Girls' Varsity Swimming

Taylor returned from vacation with a renewed sense of determination and a new set of goals. Over the past week, against Kingswood Oxford and Choate, Taylor won two individual events: the 500 free and the 200 IM (generally considered the most grueling races). She also led two relays to 1st place finishes. Even though today's Medley relay finished second, Taylor swam her anchor leg in under 26 seconds, which was the fastest time of the race, and her season's best.
