Maroon and White Honors Winter Athletes

basketballteamOn Thursday, March 9th, Scarsdale Maroon and White continued their annual tradition of honoring the season's athletes. At Lake Isle Country Club in Eastchester, winter athletes, parents, and coaches gathered to celebrate the successes of the season. With several teams making it to their respective finals, there was much to celebrate. Excitement and pride still emanated from the boys' Varsity Basketball Team, who made it to the County Center finals against Mount Vernon, just a week earlier.

Reminiscing on their 18-6 record, varsity Basketball captain Max Bosco recalls "our chemistry was a really big part of our season, everyone was incredibly close with one another from seniors to sophomores, and that played an incredible role both on and off the court. "After defeating Yorktown 61-44, at the Class AA semifinals, the team continued on to play Mount Vernon. While they lost the game, the team had a lot to be proud of. After rallying 26 points in the fourth quarter, and ending the game 55-55 in overtime, the raiders went out on a high note. The team looks back on their two games at the Country Center as their "dream from first stepping onto the court in high school."

bowlingteamAfter losing only three matches, the Bowling team proudly ended their season second in the section. Varsity captain Ryan Minster, who spent his entire high school career on the team, said, "it was a lot of fun, I made a lot of friends, and it was a really great learning experience, and an even greater four years." Minster believes that the future team is in great hands and that "the juniors are really great and are only going to make the team stronger."

wrestlersBoys Wrestling welcomed 18 new freshmen to the team this season, and senior Harrison Booker stated that, "for a very young team we really didn't expect to end second in the league, as we did, and I was very proud of that." Joey Ballan also looked back on the team's successes mentioning that, "the seniors and juniors mentored the freshmen into the whole season, and had a really successful season after essentially starting from scratch."

skiteamSki Team: The team's record improved as the season went on, ending by winning their final race. Senior Captain Katie Hirsch, who has been on the Varsity team since her sophomore year, mentions her love for "the long bus rides, because that's were everyone really bonds as a team." Although it is an individual sport, Hirsch states, "it really feels like a team, whenever I am skiing I can always hear my team cheering me on, and gives me a lot of confidence." Male captain, Rohan Gharekhan says " the season was really awesome, I loved every part of it. We succeeded at a lot of races at varsity and we had one skier (Nick Coeytaux '18) go to states, which was really amazing."

gymnasticsGymnastics Team: Despite a losing record, captains Chloe Shuster and Laura Pollack, look back on their final season, "really proud of how hard everyone worked, especially the freshmen." Pollack says "the freshmen were really sweet, and really dedicated to the team. The future of the Gymnastics team is definitely good in their hands."

TrackTeamTrack and Field Senior, Jilly Mehlman mentions "that spending time together at the Armory, and at practice has caused them to grow as a team and as people", and despite her personal season not ending the way she had wished, due to health reasons, Mehlman looks forward to continuing the sport at Yale in the fall. Greg Crowley, mentions how "the team mostly consisted of underclassmen, but they pushed each other to get better, and kept the seniors really close." He reflects on personal sickness preventing him from having the ideal season, while still winning Leagues, Counties, Sectionals, and Placing 6th at States. While not being "completely back, yet," Crowley '17, will run at Dartmouth in the fall. Kendall Bensche also reflects on her season, recalling that "the team was even closer than it has been in previous years, and that the same core group of girls has really grown up together." Bensche looks to next year saying "I'm excited to run next year at Harvard, but I'm really going to miss this group of girls"

HockeyTeamHockey Team: Senior Captains Robbie Kramer, and Jonathan Schwartz remember their 8-7-6 record, proud that "despite having a really tough schedule, we competed throughout, playing some of the best teams in the state," said Kramer. Schwartz mentions how the team "started from the beginning, constantly working hard and playing well. Every game was close, we were really in every single game." The captains recall season highlights like "the first time we beat Suffern and playing against Mamaroneck." Leaving behind some of their strongest players and their star goalie, Sam Seltzer '18, the future of the team is very strong.

swimteamSwim Team: Liam McPhillips mentions that "there is so much camaraderie on the swim team, and it is more than just an individual sport, despite the results being all you." McPhillips discusses sportsmanship on the team, stating that "We're really always cheering each other on and rooting for one another." The team had an extremely successful season, placing third in the section and having six swimmers, Liam McPhillips, Tanner McFarland, Ryan Lee, Aidan Wilson, Jack Callahan and Haofeng Liu, qualify for States.
