Noble & Greenough offers a highly competitive softball program; the team plays 11 ISL games combined with 5 to 7 non-league games against some of the most competitive prep schools in New England. The season begins with an optional “spring training” in late March, and continues through late May with games.
The goal of the program is to annually compete at or near the top of the ISL in a manner consistent with the mission and ideals of the school. Nobles softball stresses skill development and maintenance through strong commitment in a fun atmosphere and features an aggressive style of defense and base running. This approach over the last 5 years has resulted in an undefeated season, one ISL title, four second place finishes, and first place in the Big East Invitational Tournament hosted by Andover each year. We believe that our continued commitment to this approach will keep Nobles in its place as one of the top teams in the ISL.
