Maroon and White Celebrates Scarsdale Athletes

mwcheerleadersThe Maroon and White winter awards dinner was a big success at Lake Isle Country Club on Tuesday night March 6. About 660 parents, student athletes, coaches and administrators were on hand to celebrate the achievements of Scarsdale students in gymnastics, ice hockey, cheerleading, wrestling, basketball, swimming, track, skiing and bowling. Highlights of the season included the boys’ ice hockey team’s participation in the Section 1 finals and senior Jacob Berkowitz’s success at the state wrestling final in Albany where he placed second in his class.

Perhaps the biggest surprise of the night was the absence of Lake Isle’s famous chicken parmesan dinner – this year, much to everyone’s surprise, the menu featured Chicken Milanese!

Congratulations to the athletes, Maroon and White Presidents Charlotte Carr and Liz Whitney as well as the entire board. Below please find photos of the graduating seniors and team records and individual awards.  (pictured above: Senior Cheerleaders)
