Looking for the Take-aways after 0-7 Loss to Deerfield

Suffield Academy v. Deerfield Academy: 0-7 Loss                                  April 16, 2014

Deerfield were gracious hosts and brought solid ground strokes to the match, and even though there was wind and some snow on the ground, we were grateful for a bright sunny day. Overall, the team adapted better and raised levels of play throughout the match. We’ll now look back to capture our best moments today and try to sustain them longer in our match against Berkshire. Most impressive was Emily adding more dimensions to her groundstrokes by moving her opponent more during the second set. She was down 4-5 and turned the match towards a dramatic close. Well done!

About Bill Sullivan

I am an English teacher working with great students at Suffield Academy. I also teach seniors in various project-based learning environments. Some of the #PBL topics included global issues, such as Pandemics, Climate Change, and Water; more recently I have asked students to research and identify topics important to our school community and their generation. We curate these topics with a #StudentCenteredPBL. For the past eleven years, I also created a driving question for a class to research a local history mystery and present their findings in a community program partnering with our local historical society. These topics encompass researching the lives of enslaved individuals who were contributors to the foundation of our community.
