Honoring Spring Senior Athletes

Twenty-four baseball, crew and lacrosse senior athletes will not have a chance to wear the Waynflete uniform and represent the Flyers this spring.  But their impact on Waynflete athletics has been significant.

The crew team had the best season in program history in 2019 winning three regattas. The boys and girls lacrosse teams qualified for the post-season every year with this group of seniors. Boys lacrosse won a state championship in 2018. And the baseball team was loaded with talent and poised to make a play-off run this spring. Boys lacrosse coach Parker Repko says about the seniors:  “…They represent the very best of Waynflete. While we won’t have the chance to make new memories, we should be grateful that they helped us make wonderful memories that will last forever.”

Thank you spring senior athletes!

Congratulations Class of 2019!

It was a whirlwind week at Waynflete, but final events have come to a close and suddenly the hallways feel oddly quiet. We had two wonderful ceremonies for our graduating seniors—Baccalaureate and Commencement. Click below to see photos and poetry readings from the events.

Stargazing, Love, and Peru

Anna Louise Wildes ’20 reflects on her Students Shoulder to Shoulder experience in Peru

I believe a good dosage of stargazing is healthy for the soul; it can really put into perspective how small human beings are, and remind us of the things that truly matter. After all, it’s not often enough that we’re humbled by mother nature’s displays. It was there, laying on the hay under the stars, surrounded by some of the most amazing friends I’ve ever made, (and supplemented by The Book Of Joy quotes, courtesy of Brian), that I realized it’s love that moves me. Not romantic kind of love; more like the deep fondness that expands into other things such as passion, curiosity, and compassion.

There’s love in everything I do, and it’s love that motivates me to do more. I realized I love being with kids, moreover people in general, and giving them the attention and nurturing they deserve. I realized I love nature and all it has to offer, and it ignites a curious spirit within me, encouraging exploration and appreciation. I love life itself, and I cannot wait for the people I’m going to meet, the places I’m going to see, and everything in between. I love the people I’ve met and that have touched me during this trip, and I’ll implement that love into each new endeavor I face. I’m beyond grateful for this experience and the love it has filled me with.

-Anna Louise (Peru 2018)
