According to a press release from the school, the five rowers were integral in the crew team’s best finish in program history at the 2019 Head of the Charles Regatta, which is the premier scholastic regatta held in Boston each year. CBA finished sixth in a field of 85 boats in the Men’s Youth Four division.
While they unfortunately missed their 2020 season, the four lacrosse athletes were
contributors to the 2019 team that advanced to the Shore Conference championship.
D’Andrea was the starting goalie as a sophomore, saving 73 shots against 39 goals allowed. Martin scored 41 goals as a sophomore.
Longo and Sieg were starters on the 2020 soccer team that finished undefeated and won
the state sectional tournament. Longo was a main cog in a defense that only allowed four goals all season, while Sieg was a midfielder who notched five goals and four assists.
Santos was a leader on the 2019 and 2020 cross country teams. He finished sixth
overall to help CBA win the 2019 Non-Public A state championship, and he placed
second overall when the Colts won the 2020 Non-Public state sectional championship.
Miksic is a javelin thrower and pole vaulter on the track and field team. He finished third in the pole vault when the Colts won the 2020 Non-Public A indoor track and field state championship earlier this year, according to the press release.
