hockeyThe Scarsdale Youth Hockey Organization took home their first championship victory, winning The International Silversticks Regional PeeWee B Tournament on October 3rd in Ashton, Pa.

The team travelled south to the tournament that started on Friday, October 1, 2010 and got off to a great start, winning 3-1 over the Virginia Wild Green team. Determination and hard work gave these players another two winning games on Saturday, with a 10-0 win over the Virginia Wild Red team and an 8-3 win over the Jersey Penguins.

They entered the semi-finals as the #1 seed out of 16 teams. Another well skated and focused game led to a 5-0 win over the Brewster Blackhawks and a 2-0 win over the North Jersey Avalanche Blue team. Scarsdale was onto the championship game!

In game three of the day, and six for the weekend there was no sign weakness. Team work and dedication lead the team of 10 and 11 year old boys to a championship win of 3-1 over the North Jersey Avalanche White team.

The Raiders are coached by Dr. Steven Nicholas, Andrew Brotmann and Tim Bock and the player line-up is as follows: Matthew Bock, Will Bock, Sep Boeschl, Eric Brotman, Jonny Emmerman, Drew Leffler, Stephen Nicholas, Jonathan Schwartz, Sam Seltzer, Justin Staropoli, Sam Stemrman, Corey Walman and Henry Zurkow.

fieldhockey1 Since the beginning of last season the Scarsdale Varsity Field Hockey team has a grand total of one loss. That remarkable feat has coincided with the Raiders combined record of 14-1-6 under the direction of Head Coach Sharon Rosenthal over the past year. That strong play carried into 2010 where the Raiders began the year beating a Suffern team, that went undefeated a season ago, on their home turf. That win preceded victories against Hastings, Irvington and Pelham by a combined score of 15-0 demonstrating the growth of a squad that features nine seniors.

“We have a lot of great leadership,” said Rosenthal after her team’s victory Wednesday over Pelham 6-0. “I think they’re really playing as a team instead of as one individual player…from the first day of preseason they have taken the sense of belief into practice and that carries over into the games.”


Midfielder Julie Mayer
Rosenthal, the captain of the varsity team back in 1992, has a squad devoid of selfishness. She also has a roster much larger than in years past. Anticipating the upcoming loss of nine seniors, Rosenthal has eight underclassmen and five juniors for a total of 22 varsity athletes. The early results suggest that the decision paid off as the girls are constantly cheering each other on, clapping their sticks together to celebrate each goal they score. And they do score quite often.

“I think we’re putting pressure on teams early (and) were coming out strong in the first half,” said Rosenthal. “My goal is to score in the first 5 minutes and we’ve done that in the last few games.”

Two players in the Raiders starting lineup share something more than their placement on the field. Senior goalkeeper Emily Knapp and freshman forward Caroline Knapp are sisters. They may also be two of the team’s most important players. “They’re both very hard workers and its very hard to teach that,” said Rosenthal. “When you have that naturally you’re a step up.”

The two play on opposite ends of the field, as Caroline and fellow teammate senior Margot Ehrlich provide the offensive firepower. It was the freshman that scored the team’s first goal of the season against Suffern setting the tone for what has been a tremendous rookie campaign. On the back end, the senior captain has allowed just two goals through 20 quarters aptly earning the captaincy along with seniors Kathryn Peruski and Carly Levine.

With a roster full of talent and intangibles, there’s a reason their coach is brimming with confidence heading into tough matchups with Class C favorite Bronxville and Class A favorite Mamaroneck in the next eight days.

“I think we’re really setting precedence from the second we step on the field,” said Rosenthal. “No matter who you are playing you have to play hard and we always have to be the best team on the field.”

varsityrokitosIt’s a year of firsts for the Scarsdale Girls Varsity A Tennis Team. This is the first time that Coach Jennifer Roane has had three sisters on the team at once and the first time in recent memory that eight of the thirteen girls on the squad were new to the team.

With so many graduating seniors playing in the top spots last year and the loss of junior Chloe Kaufman this year, Coach Roane was left with many openings on the team. Kaufman, a junior who has played first singles for the past two years opted not to play on the team this season in order to play more USTA tournaments and work on her ranking. Fortunately, junior Michelle Furnari, who is ranked 56 in the Eastern

Henkoff and Furnari
16-and-under category is still playing for Scarsdale and is a strong first singles player. Furnari, who has played on the team since she was a freshman won her first match against Horace Mann in three sets, defeated her Pelham opponent 6-0, 6-4 and scored an easy win against Hastings on Tuesday September 21. She feels confident this year and is comfortable in the number one spot due to all of her tournament experience.

The three Rokito sisters are all playing key roles on the team. Senior Ariel Rokito is one of the team captains and is playing second singles. At the Hastings match, she

Seniors Hom, Curlan and Travis
breezed by her opponent, winning 6-0, 6-1. Her twin sister Shelby Rokito and co-captain Cali Kurlan are in the first doubles position and won their match against Hastings when their opponents forfeited for medical reasons early in the match. The youngest and tallest Rokito, Lindsay, is the only freshman on the team and is playing second doubles with sophomore Stephanie Henkoff who has moved up to the team from Varsity B.

Parents Andy and Susan Rokito were on hand to watch the three girls play and Andy said, “As a parent it’s a great feeling to have the three girls all play on the same varsity team. I have watched them play tennis since they were four years old and fed them balls until they got too good for me and moved onto professional coaches. It is good to see that all of their hard work paid off.”


Junior Ciara Willaims
In third singles the team welcomes Junior Ciara (pronounced Sierra) Williams who did not play tennis for Scarsdale last year but played junior varsity as a freshman. So far she is ahead this season, winning her matches against Pelham and Hastings but falling to Horace Mann.

Moving up from Varsity B are sophomores Jessie Somekh and Shelby Zucker. At 5’6” and 5’9” the athletic duo bring some height to the team where they play doubles together. Though they feel more pressure playing on Varsity A, both enjoy the challenge and are finding it fun to be part of the team. The won both of their matches against Pelham and Hastings.

Somekh and Zucker
Seniors Alex Travis and Meagan Hom are returning members of the team and play doubles, alternating positions with juniors Jenna Karp and Julia Morris who have moved up from Varsity B. Karp and Morris played in the fourth position against Hastings on Tuesday, while Travis and Hom playing an extra doubles match. Both teams won and the overall score for the match against Hastings was 7-0.


Jenna Karp at the net
The team did score two early losses in matches against Horace Mann and Edgemont, losing 2-5 against Horace Mann, who is not in the league and falling 2-5 to Edgemont who is in the league. Edgemont’s team includes eighth graders and the team is young and tough.

This Thursday, September 23, the team crosses the bridge to play Suffern, and next week they will play Solomon Schechter at home on Monday, away at New Rochelle on Wednesday and home against Mamaroneck on Thursday September 30. Both Mamaroneck and Bronxville are said to have strong teams this year so it may be difficult to maintain the number one position in the league that Scarsdale has held for years. We’ll be watching.

Junior Julia Morris
