On Monday, May 20, Stoneleigh-Burnham School celebrated Team Night, and spring teams came together to celebrate the end of the athletic season. Throughout the year, the athletics department has been celebrating a “healthy mind in a healthy body.” Athletics is about trying something new, experiencing failure and celebrating success, and being a member of something greater than an individual. Throughout the season, individuals and coaches set goals to define what success looks like for individuals and the team. The final couple of weekends of the spring saw the SBS Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA) team qualify at various levels and win numerous awards, softball clicking on the final game of season leading to a victory over our school rival, personal records being set on the track team, lacrosse dramatically improving from last year, and the dancers performing “We’re All Bettys.” Congratulations to the success of each of the teams and individuals this season and throughout the school year. Go Owls!
