We lost to Miss Halls and our record was 0-2-0. Luckily, it was early in the season so we had plenty of time to improve.

In the end, it was a tough loss for the Owls against Putney School. In spite of it, they had a winning season and finished as league champions. Perhaps the most heartening moment of the season came after the game had ended. As the students and guests from Putney School celebrated their win, our own fans, proud of their team and their school, ran across the field to support and encourage their peers. In spite of the loss, our fans were there to celebrate everything the team accomplished this season. Regardless of the final outcome of the game, they were proud of their friends and classmates. This is what Stoneleigh-Burnham is all about.
