Captain of the varsity soccer team Karsten Monteverde reports on a highly successful pre-season camp that also included members of the cross country team: Fully rested from a relaxing summer, the Browning boys and coaches set out for the annual soccer and cross country camp at Camp Mah-Kee-Nak in Lenox, Mass. The boys used the four days to mentally and physically prepare themselves for the fall season ahead, no matter what level they will end up playing in. Overall, the camp was a great success, both in helping the coaches see the improvements of each player on the field and also in beginning new friendships between the returning boys and the new boys. Ranging from the seniors to the seventh graders, each member seemed to almost always have a smile on his face, which not only makes the coaches happy but also makes for a much better experience for everyone. When a new student was asked about his experience at soccer camp, he said, “Everyone was very friendly, and I felt as if I had already been a part of this school for years. It was a huge relief for me and makes me really excited to start the new school year with these guys.” Overall, the new season has already started on a very high note, with potentially strong varsity soccer and varsity cross country teams that have set high goals for each of their respected seasons.
