For the second straight year the Greenwich Academy hockey team won the St. George's tournament in Rhode Island, beating the host school 4-2 in the championship game.

Janka Hlinka scored two goals in the championship with Charlotte Gilland and Pam Schulman adding goals.

Annie DeFrino made 16 saves for the Gators.

Schulman was named MVP of the tournament and Sarah Kaplan was named defenseman of the tournament.

"We ended up outshooting our opponents and outscored them 14-2," GA coach Mo Tarrant said. "They played pretty much as well as they could play. We hit the mark on every shot. It was a great tournament for the girls."

The Gators (7-1) will play Ridgefield Wednesday in their last game before Winter Break.

Wrestling

The Brunswick wrestling team earned two quality wins on the team's fourth road trip in eight days.

Brunswick (7-2) regrouped from Thursday's loss to Horace Mann and came out strong and confident against one of the better teams in the league in Suffield Academy 51-25.

Suffield Academy, who came into the match at 9-0 on the season, won the WNEISWA in 2011 and were third in 2012, one half point behind Brunswick.

The junior duo of Owen Schubert and Jimmy Bell got the day started for the Bruins with two first period pins.

Gregg Nabhan lost a close one at 160 and then the Bruins got rolling with pins from their next four wrestlers to seal the match.

In the match against Suffield High School, Brunswick proved to be the deeper team, winning 54-28, facing several strong wrestlers en route to the team victory.

Alex Tucker, Schubert, Bell and Tyler McMillian were each 2-0 on the day.

McMillian continues to fill in for Michael Keating who remains out with an illness.

Brunswick has its last match before Winter Break at Iona Prep on Tuesday.

Girls swimming

The Convent of the Sacred Heart lost to Suffield Academy 95-80 at Suffield.

Diver Kirsten Parkinson set a pool and Sacred Heart record with 278.05 points.

Grace Isford won the backstroke with a time of 1:08.14 and finished second in the IM. Lauren Marsilisi swam well in the 500 freestyle and 200 IM and freshman Erin Chick finished third in the 100 butterfly.

The Tigers (1-2) swim at Chase Collegiate Tuesday.
