Wyvern Nation Sports Wraps – December 5, 2019

The Varsity Boys’ Basketball team participated in a thrilling game against perennial double A powerhouse St. Andrews School on Dec. 4 and lost 66-82. The Wyverns played the defending New England champions even throughout the first half and took brief leads in the second half. The team played with great confidence, selflessness, and toughness. In the end, St. Andrew’s depth and talent proved too much as they pulled away in the last few minutes of the game. It was a wonderful effort by our team and a fantastic start to our season. The Wyverns were led in scoring by Gavin Griffiths ’23 (31 points) and Carter Meshanic ’21 (20 points).
