Cambrie finished her senior season with 102 goals, the most by any girl in SGS history.  Her soccer accomplishments include First Team All-League ('16, '17, '18, '19), League MVP ('18, '19), Second Team All-State ('16), First Team All-State ('17, '18, '19), WIAA State MVP ('18), WIAA Athlete of the Week ('18), playing in three State Championship games and helping to win two State Titles.  Congratulations, Cambrie!

Cambrie Rickard scored four goals against Reardan in the girls soccer District Semi-Final game on Thursday, March 25.  That was part of a seven-goal barrage that the Dragons landed in the first half of the game, leading to a 9-1 victory and the right to host the District Title game.  Then the Dragons outscored Davenport 3-1 to capture the District Championship on Saturday, March 27.  Playing on their home field, the Dragons finished their shortened season with a 9-2 overall record.  Cambrie Rickard added one more goal for a career total of 102 goals.  She is the first SGS girl to score over 100 goals, and only the third Dragon to reach that mark.  Go Dragons!

Ngozi Asinga, a sprinter who was the first woman to represent Zambia in the 1992 and 1996 Summer Olympics, joined junior and senior students from Mark Rickard's Sports, Exercise and Health Science classes on March 10 via Zoom from Lusaka, Zambia.  She answered their questions about her physical and mental preparation for the Olympics.  After attending college in the U.S. and living in Atlanta for 30 years, Ngozi returned to Zambia to open Go-Go Fitness, where she is a pioneer in bringing fitness and health to Zambian women.  She is also a good friend of Francesca Mulazzi, the Head of Upper School at SGS.  Watch the 25-minute Video of the students insightful questions and Ngozi's thoughtful answers!
