A Parade for Scarsdale's Champions

FireEngineIt was a banner fall for Scarsdale High School athletes, with two teams winning the state championships and another going all the way to the regionals.

Why not a parade for Scarsdale’s stellar athletes?

That’s just what was arranged by booster organization Maroon and White to celebrate the boys’ soccer, girls tennis and boys volleyball teams on Monday afternoon November 27, 2023.

Prior to the parade the athletes and parents were invited to the gym where “the resilience of each team” was noted by Scarsdale Athletic Director Ray Pappalardi.

Each player was recognized, given a t-shirt and photographed with their team.

Pappalardi lauded the Varsity boys’ volleyball team for their 9-0 league record, 22-2 record for the season and their designation as a New York State Athletic Association scholar athlete team.

Next up were the Varsity boys soccer team who secured the league, section and state championships without a defeat for the second year in a row. They were 8-0 for their league and ended the season with an overall record of 21-1-0.

The Varsity girls A tennis team have now won their league, section, region and the state for the third year in a row. In fact, Coach Jennifer Roane provided an amazing statistic: The team has not lost a match for five years ….. that’s undefeated for five years.

Following the ceremony and photos, there was an old-fashioned parade on the grounds of the school. A fire engine with lights and sirens led the way. The teams marched and were accompanied by several police cruisers also flashing their lights.

Parents and friends lined up with maroon noisemakers to celebrate Scarsdale’s number one athletes.
