The cheerleaders came out to support the boys, Mr. Rollman did a play by play, and we had a great crowd! The guys were really pumped up for this game and put in their most complete performance of the season. The way they passed and moved as a team demonstrates how much the team has grown and improved from the summer. Sophomore Roland Zanger scored the first goal and Senior Besim Restelica scored the second on a free kick. It's always great to win on senior night, especially when we have so many supporters in attendance. This has been a great group all season and we will really miss this senior class!

Varsity Girls at the Shannon Miller Ovarian Cancer Presentation - 2017

September 20, 2017 - Port Jervis, NY - Our female Varsity athletes and coaching staff attended the Shannon Miller Ovarian Cancer Presentation.

The message resounded with our athletes and coaches in attendance. The photo is of some of the female Varsity athletes with Seven-time Olympic Gold Medalist gymnast and ovarian cancer survivor Shannon Miller.

Here's the live feed from the presentation: at 1:08:48 is a question from our own Julyanna Sauschuck regarding how lessons learned as an athlete transfer to 'adult' life.  I think Shannon Miller's answer is amazing.
