AWS vs Olmstead

Posted 3 weeks ago

On October 9th, another fine fall day, the AWS Eagles soccer team challenged the Olmstead school at Rumsey Field in Delaware park. With a full team, the Eagles scored first at the 5-minute mark. The Nussbaumer siblings were back in action. Calloway (G8) crossed a pass in front of the goal to allow George (G7) an exciting first goal. The Olmstead strikers had excellent footwork, but the Eagles speed and excellent defense limited shots on goal.

The morning started with a lovely assembly filled with singing, performances by the Grade 1- 8 students, which highlighted various aspects of our rich curriculum.

Middle School Sports - 9/20/19

Posted 1 month ago

On September 20th, a gorgeous fall day, the AWS Eagles soccer team opened their season against the Gow Ravens. The final score was 6-3, with Gow taking the lead early in the first half, including a “bicycle kick” by a Pele-like Raven. Our Eagles, led by Coach Mark Lim, appeared to have great chemistry and aggressiveness to come from behind to score three goals in the second half. Calloway Nussbaumer (G8) with an assist from Elias “Wheels” Nojaim (G6) had the first goal, George Nussbaumer (G7) was unassisted on the second, and Nojaim had the third goal on an assist from C. Nussbaumer.
