"The Basketball Program at US is unique and has impacted me in ways that other sports never could. Being a part of a team with only twelve guys allows a tight bond to be formed between each player and coach that other sports can't offer. Being able to enjoy a team lunch together before playing some of the best teams in Ohio is truly what makes the program special. I can't thank my coaches and teammates enough for the countless hours they put into this program, as their drive is what makes me better every day. I believe for these reasons and many more; it was a privilege to play for University School Basketball." - Duke Brennan '24


Hockey fell in the State Championship Game at Nationwide Arena after defeating St. Charles Prep 6-0 in the State Semifinals. US won the GLHL Tournament after an outstanding regular season and finished the year 36-4. Luca Garofalo '24 and Sam Wade '24 served as team captains, and the assistant captains were Anthony Messina '24 and Michael Matthews '24.

"Coming to US, I knew that there would be a strong emphasis on community. However, as I joined the hockey team, I soon realized that it would become my second family. US Hockey is a space where I have met some of my closest friends and fostered some of my best relationships. Playing hockey at US gives you an opportunity to be yourself both on and off the ice while simultaneously accomplishing many great things." Luca Garofalo '24


Squash defeated Milton Academy 5-2 to win the consolation bracket of the Division ll National High School Championships.

"Playing on the University School squash team has taught me invaluable lessons as to who I am and what it means to be a part of this community. I’ve transitioned from seeing myself in the reflection of the back wall to seeing through it to my teammates behind. The program has shown me the greater satisfaction in the shared experience and provided me with brothers and mentors that I will cherish for the rest of my life." - Chase Greppin '24

Wrestling competed against many of the best programs in Northeast Ohio throughout the regular season. Doyle Grosz '27, Phin Kasubick '27 and Mac Hurley '27 all qualified for the OHSAA District Tournament. Oliver Thomas '24 and Noah Quisenberry '24 served as team captains.

“Although an individual sport, the wrestlers at US have a unique bond. This sport has worked me mentally and physically harder than anything I have ever done. That work not only forged a better man out of me, but it helped forge a family for every wrestler to be united, both in and out of school.”
