At the Varsity level, both the Baseball Tigers and the Softball Tigers made their way to the postseason! For Varsity Softball, the Tigers’ 6-4 regular season record landed them in the playoffs. The Tigers put up a strong effort but fell to Léman Manhattan in the first round . Varsity Baseball advanced to the semi-final game of their playoffs after a victory over Lawrence Woodmere Academy in the first round. In the semi-final game, the Tigers found themselves down double-digits early on against The Stony Brook School, the top team in the league.
