Boys Varsity Basketball vs. Groton School - Loss (21-67) - December 3, 2016

Boys' Varsity basketball took one under the chin at home on Saturday, losing big to a deep, talented Groton School squad, 67-21. Co-captain Will Campbell '19 was knocked out of the game early on with a possible concussion, and the Wildcats couldn't find any momentum offensively, trailing 18-2 after the first eight minutes. Sophomore Kyle Mincey '19 gave Dublin a lift off the bench, scoring his first five points in a Varsity uniform, but the rest of his teammates had a tough shooting night, going a combined 7-for-37 from the floor and turning the ball over a whopping 35 times. Jaydon Belliveau-Ryan '20 had 7 points and 5 rebounds, and Nate Gryczka '20 played important minutes for Dublin, grabbing 6 rebounds and adding 3 points.

Dublin (0-2, 0-0 RVAL) travels to Worcester on Friday for the opening of the two-day invitational tournament at Bancroft School. Dublin has drawn Watkinson School for the first round, and game-time is 6:30 p.m.

Kindness is Difficult.

Kindness is Difficult.

The recent presidential election brought about an unprecedented level of vitriol, hate and anger in our country. As a history teacher I had to go back to the election of 1800 between Thomas Jefferson and John Adams to find such a divisive campaign. As an educator I am deeply disturbed by the number of stories coming from college and high school campuses that talk about students being threatened based on their race, gender identity, religion, sexuality and beliefs. Now more than ever schools like Dublin must engage in intense conversation and encourage active listening.

Boys Varsity Basketball vs. Cardigan Mountain School - Loss - (40-46) - November 30, 2016

Dublin's Varsity boys' basketball team dropped a tightly contested season opener, losing to Cardigan Mountain School 46-40. Dublin came out hot on their home court in the first six minutes of the game, jumping out to an 11-1 advantage on buckets by Will Campbell '19 and Jaydon Belliveau-Ryan '20, but Cardigan soon closed the gap and took a 19-16 lead into halftime. Dublin briefly regained the lead, 33-32, with five and a half minutes remaining, but turnovers caused by Cardigan's scrappy defense proved costly to the home team down the stretch. The taller and stronger Wildcats dominated the boards throughout, led by Idriss Traore '19 and Wyatt Switzer '19, who collected 13 and 12 rebounds, respectively. Belliveau-Ryan led the team with 18 points on the night to go with 7 rebounds, followed by Campbell with 14 points, 7 rebounds, and 3 assists.

“Perfect is the Enemy of the Good:” Caroline Robbins on Balance, Stories, and Self

Caroline Robbins knows that, while she may be introverted, there are many new students at Dublin this year, and she would love to get to know them. “I like learning people’s stories and finding out what’s important to them,” she says.

“In those [getting-to-know-you] conversations, whether it’s a hello or people coming into my room during study hall or during sports, there are a lot of places I can get to know people and their stories.”

Caroline brought many stories to Dublin, herself, just last year.
