Although Dutchess Day has no swimming pool, once a year the school  “fields” a team to compete against Maplebrook School in Amenia. On March 5, the DDS team, with Athletic Director and coach Nigel Pink, travelled to Maplebrook to race their team in that school’s indoor pool. Dutchess Day’s team was made up of 16 students in grades 5 through 8, some of whom swim competitively outside...

Dutchess Day 5  Steiner 5    Game played on Wednesday October 23rd, 2013

With Dutchess Day comfortably ahead 4 - 1 at half-time with goals from Jack Ellis (3) and Connor Finemore, it seemed very unlikely that steiner would get back into this match. But get back into it they did. A second half DDS defensive collapse  in a desperate 15 minute...
