Homecoming Hosted Fans, Friends, and Shoppers
On a crisp October day, Quakers took to the fields, the courts, and the turf to compete in front of cheering fans and friends at Homecoming.
The football team took on another Quaker school and, despite a great game, lost to Wilmington Friends 26 to 35.
The soccer teams faced strong competitors and both emerged victorious. The girls’ varsity soccer defeated the Stone Ridge Gators 4 to 2, and the boys’ varsity soccer beat St. Anselm’s 5 to 1.
Varsity and JV volleyball teams jumped high but were both defeated by Trinity Christian.
Girls’ and boys’ cross-country took the field at Georgetown Prep, Girls’ varsity tennis lost to Potomac School 3 to 4, and the varsity field hockey lost to Brookewood 0 to 1.
Game photos are available online.
Many alumni returned to campus to cheer on the Quakers and attend a session in the Meeting Room hosted by history teacher Ellis Turner. Ellis shared his knowledge of US history and his experiences from the cross-country road trip that he took visiting alumni last year. You can read more about Ellis’ trip online. Friends also gathered at an alumni reception in Zartman House mid-afternoon; photos are online.
After fans cheered on student athletes, many shopped at the annual Next-to-New Sale. This popular sale of quality used items also closed out the weekend in specular style thanks to more than 300 volunteers and of course all those who shopped. All proceeds from the sale benefit student financial aid, and unsold items benefited local charities.

Lions are not typically vegetarians. With one notable exception: the lion that performed in front of the Sidwell Friends community during the Lunar New Year celebration on January 26. To help kick off the Year of the Rat, that lion enjoyed a hearty vegan meal.
