Deerfield Day - 75th Anniversary - Recap

The historic rivalry between Choate and Deerfield celebrated its official diamond anniversary on November 10! Since 1944, Choate has hosted athletic contests in even years and Deerfield has hosted them in odd years.

Lab and the Johannes J. Shattuck '93 Robotics Lab in the Lanphier Center for Mathematics and Computer Science. A recap of the athletic contests follows:
