Yesterday in the girls’ student-faculty game the Lady Mustangs basketball team defeated the women faculty in a very close game by the score of 41-36.
Ms. Wynus led the women faculty scoring 12pts followed by Mrs. Purtill with 8pts. Rookie Ms. Dehaan showed off her great ball handling skills on the court and scored 6pts. Another rookie, Ms. Clark, also showed some talent on defense with 5 steals and holding two of the Lady Mustangs top scorers, Hayleigh Lagase and Julianna Fazzino, to zero points in the game. Ms. Clark also contributed 4pts while Mrs. Carbone, Ms. Wolfrum and Ms. Esterheld each contributed 2pts. Ms. Hebert played an integral part on the faculty offense with 8 assists while Mrs. Funaro was very disruptive to the Lady Mustangs offense with her defensive skills.
The women faculty excelled in their defensive efforts and were within 2pts of the Lady Mustangs with about 2 minutes left in the game, with the score of 38-36. Caitlyn Hunt, who led all scorers for the Lady Mustangs with 12pts, put in a 3-point shot with 1 minute left in the game to seal the victory. Others that scored for the Lady Mustangs were Mia Mills scoring 8pts, followed by Maddyson Horobin 4pts, Dempsey Lajoie with 3pts, and Jayna Mackenzie, Jocelyn Petrillo, Amelia Mansfield, Jaime Koons, and Katie Webb each contributing 2pts Lauren Lindberg, Ryen Wolcheski, and Sydney Rossacci also played well in the game.
Congratulations to both the girls’ basketball team and the women faculty for playing such a great game!
Two years ago 15 German students and their teachers visited our Moran/Sheehan school communities. That initial visit has generated a lot of excitement and interest in the exchange program among Moran students. Last year 14 Wallingford students traveled to visit our exchange partners in Germany and had a wonderful experience.
Last week Mr. Fleischmann gave a brief presentation to all 8th graders and provided application forms to students who indicated interest in hosting a student from Germany this year.
The following information is for 8th grade parents whose child is interested in hosting a student visiting from Germany this May.
Planned arrival date is May 21st and departure is planned for June 4th
The visiting students will be staying at your home and attend school
There are several trips planned during their stay (New York, Boston etc.)
Early applications will be given preference
Students are not obligated to take German next year or to travel to Germany next year
We are looking for up to 15 host families at Moran. This will be an incredible opportunity for our students to make new friends and potentially travel to Germany in 2018.
If you are interested in becoming a host family and your child did not get an application please contact Mr. Andreson at Moran or Mr. Fleischmann at Sheehan.
Monday afternoon we hosted our annual boys student-faculty basketball game. This year, the faculty team was victorious once again with the final score of faculty 51 and students 39.
Though the faculty was at times out of breath, they proved themselves to be a vicious five man wolfpack and put out a fantastic performance. Mr. Robinson was the lead scorer with an outstanding 18 points. Mr. Almeida followed with 14 points and Mr. Sofiane scored 10. Mr. Devine and Mr. Bologna completed the rest of the points of this triumphant squad of teachers!
On the boys side, Joe Amarone was the lead scorer with 7 points. Anthony MarkAnthony followed with 6 points while Chris Murzak and Jack Swierczynski tallied 5 points. The rest of the team all contributed to what was a very well fought battle. The boys showed that they are a very talented group.
The crowd was loud and encouraging and it was another fun filled afternoon. Great job to all the faculty and students that participated.
The boy’s basketball team made it to the 2nd round of the Woodrow Wilson tournament losing to Porter. The Moran boys were one of the most watched teams, gaining support from fans in the stand – scoring over 50 in all games. The boys put on a great showcase of teamwork and grit. 8th graders Jack McDonnell, Garrett Harrison, Joe Amarone, Jack Swierczynski, and Chris Murzak played their hearts out, leaving everything they have on the floor.
