Icebreaker Elizabeth Wulf

January 12, 2011

In four years with the Rye Country Day girls’ hockey team, Elizabeth Wulf has blown away the school’s previous record — 50 — for goals scored in a varsity career. The scary part is that Wulf, a sophomore on the girls’ hockey team, still has the rest of this season and then two more after that to add to her gaudy total of 81.

Wulf first picked up a hockey stick 11 years ago, and has since become the driving force behind the Wildcats’ success. Blinding speed and a superior knowledge of the game are the attributes that allow her to skate past defenders and pour in the goals.

Against Preston the day before, the Garnets were 57-31 victors. Lillian McCabe paced the team with 29 points, Greer chipped in 12, and senior captain Karly Fitzgerald recorded six steals.

After falling 71-62 to Lakeland in the first round of the Walter Panas tournament, the Rye boys’ basketball team dropped a 53-52 decision to host Panas in the consolation game.

The offensive-minded pair of Elizabeth Wulf and Kayti Faustini combined for six goals — each scored a hat trick — as the Rye Country Day girls’ hockey team bested visiting Princeton 7-0. Freshman sensation Wulf reached 50 goals for her career, and continues to add to her all-time scoring record at the school. Fellow freshman Nicole Grosser saved 27 in goal.

On Friday at Rye Country Day School, the boys’ basketball team defeated Hopkins 62-56. Jason Rogers scored 27, and Darren Douglas tossed in 13.

Jeffrey Horowitz scored all four of his goals in the third period of Rye Country Day‘s 5-4 win over Pingree in the second round of the Pingree tournament.

Lillian McCabe paced Rye in that contest with 23 points and six assists.

On the girls’ side, Rye Country Day faltered in the Fieldston finals after thrashing NYC’s Convent of the Sacred Heart in the opening round. Alexandra Osborn-Jones recorded a double-double with 14 points and 11 rebounds, and Carolyn Binder scored 13, but Staten Island Academy eked out a 48-45 win in the championship. The Wildcats 52-19 defeat of CSH one day earlier came thanks to another double-double from OJ. She paced RCDS with 18 points and 11 rebounds, while Binder added 15 points and dished six assists.


Afternoon Round-up: Wildcats Roar in Season-Opener

December 3, 2009

The Rye Country Day boys’ hockey team began their season with a thrilling overtime victory yesterday. Shayne Bingham didn’t allow the drama to last in the overtime session, as he scored one minute in to give his Wildcats a 3-2 victory over visiting Rye Town/Harrison. Omeed Alidadi recorded 10 saves in net, and Chris Seter and Cole Kleinberg scored goals in regulation. Jeffrey Horowitz assisted twice.

The girls’ ice Wildcats weren’t as fortunate. They fell 7-1 on the road at Cantebury. Nicole Grosser faced a deluge of shots on goal, and was able to save an incredible 48. Kayti Faustini scored Rye Country Day’s lone goal.


Morning Round-up: The Winter Season Begins

December 2, 2009

It has only been a few short weeks since the last of the autumn action, but it has felt like an eternity! Fortunately, the winter season kicked off last night with a couple of contests. Rye Neck’s bowling team opened the season with a 5-2 win over Harrison, and Nicole Grosser made 35 saves in goal, but the Rye Country Day girls’ hockey team fell to Portledge on the road 6-0.
