Early November Victories!

Tuesday, November 6, 2018

November started off with a string of victories for our Girls Volleyball and our Coed Flag Football teams, and both are in great shape for the upcoming playoffs.

By the end of the evening, they finished the regular season with a record of 9 - 0.  This is the third consecutive year that they have accomplished this feat.

Despite missing 5 key players, our Flag Football team achieved a shut out victory  over Bronx Prep Charter School.  The final score was 21- 0.  Truly an impressive victory under trying circumstances!
