Posted 02/16/2017 10:24AM

    Friends’ Central School did it again in the pool at the Friends Schools League Championships held at George School on Saturday, February 11th.  In front of a packed crowd, the Phoenix boys (5-2) defended their league title successfully for the 14th consecutive time. The Phoenix girls (6-1) won 8 out of the 11 events and set a number of records in the process.

 An elated FCS Head Coach Iain Anderson was able to gain perspective on what had just happened,“The kids were thrown all sorts of “cold & flu” curve balls this winter, but they certainly found a team way to rally and turn in great overall performances in the Championship!"
