Seven independent prep schools qualified for NEPSAC tournaments the last time they were held.
Dexter Southfield and Berkshire appeared in the Stuart/Corkery Elite 8 Tournament -- with Dexter losing to Salisbury in the title game -- while Cushing Academy and Brunswick appeared in the Martin/Earl bracket.
Pomfret, Millbrook and the Frederick Gunn School battled it out in the Piatelli/Simmons Tournament, with the FGS Highlanders taking home the 2020 Small School crown.
With the prep school season on pause for 2020-21, a new and full NEPSAC season is here at last for 2021-22.
