Sports Recap 5/15-5/20

It’s crunch time in the woods, as we have reached the most exciting point of the spring sports season yet. Between some NVL tournament action this week, and the anticipation of even more next week, stakes are higher than ever for our sports teams at Woodland.


It’s only right to open this week’s recap with the NVL championship winning boys tennis team. Our boys tennis team went into Friday with hopes of coming out as NVL champions, and were able to do just that. They won their semifinal matchup the previous day to set up a final showdown against Naugatuck. When Friday came around, the team knocked in an overall 4-1 victory and were crowned NVL champions.

“Everybody wanted to know what I would do if I didn’t win,” said captain Kayo Niebryzdowski. “Well, I guess we’ll never know.”

The girls tennis team sadly did not have the same success as the boys this year, however had an extremely impressive season. The girls made it all the way to the NVL semi finals this year before losing to Wolcott, and had one of the best seasons in recent team history.


The boys baseball team will play in the NVL tournament next week, and had a very productive week leading up to it. They had their last regular season game on Monday against Crosby and won 10-0 in the team’s senior night game, finishing the year with an overall record of 16-2. Following this game, the boys had an extremely productive week of practice in preparation for their first round matchup against Oxford on Saturday. Unfortunately, the game got rained out on Saturday and was moved to next Monday. The boys will look to get past the first round, which would potentially set up a semi-final and even a finals matchup on Wednesday and Thursday of next week.


The girls softball team capped off an undefeated regular season this week, finishing the year with an overall record of 18-0. They took care of business on Monday beating Crosby in their last NVL matchup of the regular season. They then were able to beat competitive Newton 3-2 in a non-conference game to close out their regular season. The girls will look to continue their dominance in the NVL this year with the tournament next week, coming in as the overall #1 seed.

Outdoor Track

The boys and girls outdoor track teams opened the week with a meet in Oxford. They were able to beat both Oxford and St. Paul to advance their respective records to 11-1. The boys and girls trained the rest of the week in preparation for the NVL championship, which was thought to be on Saturday. However, the championship was rained out, and moved to Wednesday of next week. The team will now have a few extra days to train in preparation for the championship, where they expect to perform well.
