Athletics Highlights: Fall Season 2020-21

Despite the fall athletic season looking very different this year, many of the athletes were able to safely compete in their sports. View a video created by Latin's Athletic Department that was played at the virtual fall sports banquet and take a look at their individual and team accomplishments below.

Boys and Girls Cross Country
ISL: Boys First Place; Girls First Place
Regional: Boys First Place; Girls First Place
Sectional: Boys Third Place; Girls Second Place

The upper school cross country teams were the best teams in Latin's long strong history of producing excellent teams. The girls were ranked number one in the state for most of the season and the boys as high as fifth. At the conference meet, Latin swept all four JV and varsity races with the girls varsity team earning a historic perfect score!

JV Boys Golf
Overall Record: 4-3
Highlights from the JV boys golf season included a barnburner win against De La Salle Institute at Jackson Park Golf Course and a rowdy team scramble to finish up the season at Sydney Marovitz Golf Course.

Varsity Boys Golf
ISL: Third Place
Regional: First Place
Sectional: Third Place

In a year unlike any other, the Latin boys varsity golf team displayed grit, enthusiasm, optimism and zest in a time that did not always present the environment to do so. In a "normal" year, the boys' would have qualified for the IHSA 1A State Tournament, something to hang their hats on and their chins held high. A special thank you to all of the seniors who, in too many ways to list, were the building blocks to this program in recent years.

Varsity Girls Golf
Overall Record: 9-1
ISL: First Place

Regional: First Place
Sectional: Third Place
The team was 9-1 in dual matches this season with their only loss being to a really talented Fenwick squad. The girls won a dual match against Loyola Academy on their home course and also on their Senior Day. Though they qualified for the State Finals, the final round of competition was not held. 

Girls Swimming
Overall Record: 5-3
Sectional: Fifth Place

Placing in the top 12 individually at Sectionals and scoring points for Latin included: 
Elena S.- 9th in the 200 free, 5th in the 500 free 
Zoe S.- 9th in the 100 fly, 10th in the 50 free 
Alexa S.- 7th in the 200 IM, 5th in the 100 back
Ashley R.- 6th in the 200 IM, 2nd in the 100 breast
Elro S.- 8th in the 50 free, 10th in the 100 fly 
Katie C.- 10th in the 200 free, 12th in the 500 free 

JV Girls Tennis
Overall Record: 9-2   
The Romans became closer as a team, worked hard, and overcame difficult opponents such as Walter Payton and Lane Tech. The coaches were so proud of what they all accomplished this season and are looking forward to the next season.

Varsity Girls Tennis
Overall Record: 14-1
ISL: First Place
Sectional: First Place

Sectionals was a repeat of history for Latin's first and second doubles teams to face off in the finals. This isn’t always the best-case scenario but it is pretty impressive and shows the hard work they had put into the season. The coaches were proud of the resilience and adaptability of the players to have a successful season.

State Championship Regatta: Fourth Place
Chicago Yacht Club Team: First Place

The sailing team had a wonderful season, especially with summer-like temperatures in November. The regattas were few due to restricted inter-state travel and limits on clubs hosting outside teams during the pandemic, but Latin endured and the eight varsity and two JV sailors practiced three times per week. This paid off at the November 7-8 State Shepard's Championship Regatta with Latin placing fourth out of 15! Though falling short to Lake Forest High School,  U of C Lab School and Loyola Academy, Latin defeated local rivals St. Ignatius, New Trier and Walter Payton, as well as Jones and Whitney Young.
