Atlantis Charter School Spring Sports Report
The ACS spring season has come to an end, and our Triton athletes have several great accomplishments to look back upon. ACS Athletic Director Chad Gormly provides this update.
Another City Championship for Atlantis
The ACS Middle School baseball team won its fourth consecutive city championship by defeating Kuss 15-0 on Saturday, June 8th, 2019. Dylan Amaral started the game by throwing a perfect three innings (eight strikeouts). Christian Connell came in for the final six outs. The offense was led by Dylan Amaral, Christian Connell and Kam Pereira. Guided by coaches Tom Furman and David Roache, the baseball team dominated all the teams they faced this year, outscoring opponents 76-3.
JV Softball Team Achieves Winning Season
The high school girls’ JV softball team achieved a record of 10-3 on the season, securing the first-ever winning record in HS softball in our
high school’s young history. The Tritons were led by MVP Sydney Bednarz. The team defeated local JV squads from Westport, Bristol Aggie, and Diman on their way to the winning record.
Sydney is a 7th grader, but plays like a high school star at the JV level. This season, Sydney pitched 20 innings, struck out 20 batters, and also had 15 RBI’s while hitting 3 homeruns.
Coach Travis states, “She was a joy to coach. She is very smart and respectful, and her softball IQ is very high.”
New Track Team for the High School
The Atlantis track & field team had a successful inaugural spring season. The team competed in two tri-meets this season, with several of our athletes placing in many events.
In the girls’ events, notable accomplishments included Joanelys Sosa placing 3rd in the 200m and 4th in the 100m; Andy Colon placing 6th in shot put; Jessica Walker placing 3rd in the 100m, and 2nd in the long jump and Maddison Stevens placing 3rd in the long jump as well. For the boys’ events, Adam Holt-Lopes placed 3rd in the long jump, Jairin Perez placed 2nd in the 200m, Jonathan Aguilar placed 4th in the 200 m, and senior Brian Arruda took home first place in the shot-put.
The team did very well, especially considering we had only had half the number of athletes that all of our competitors had. Next year, coaches Hank Madeira, Julie Mara, and Erin Lordin look to add more athletes to the roster and compete in a full set of Dual and Tri-meets.
ACS Athletics gets a golf cart!
A very special thanks goes out to Bruce and Sandy Thomas, Dunkin Donut franchise owners, for their generous donation of funds to purchase a golf cart for ACS Athletics.
Members of the community, including parent volunteers and the Triton Booster Club, worked with the Thomas’s in order to make it all possible. The cart will be used to move field and sports equipment and transport game day personnel. This donation goes a long way in helping the Athletic Department set up for outdoor athletic events and recreational activities. The cart is painted in our school’s colors and sports the Dunkin logo. From all of our athletes, coaches, parents and staff, we thank the Thomas’s for their wonderful donation!
