Nate says, “This is the best team I’ve ever played on. We are capable of having a good season and we plan on going to states this year.”

Coach Callahan: “A team is a group of people working together towards a common goal. When it comes to a soccer team, they support each other, on and off of the field. They work together to try and score goals, moving with each other up the field. My soccer team has always been like a family to me, and I am trying to create that same atmosphere with the team that I coach now. I have been playing soccer for 26 years now, and it is my life. I am trying to pass on that passion to my players!”

Gianna Castellano-Girls Soccer:

Gianna says, “I’ve been playing soccer since I was young. I love playing soccer because my team is like a family. Win or lose we still stick together and have fun. Soccer has given me friendships and memories that I will always cherish. My coaches are great role models and have taught me some really important lessons. I’m excited for this season.”

Coach Hackett: “What soccer means to me is the players, the team, the family. We are more than just a team, we are a family and a place for all the players to grow and develop together. Soccer in our program also means pride, we play for our family, our community, and most of all for each other.”

Alexa Heaphy-Volleyball

Stats: starts varsity as a sophomore.

averages 2.2 digs per set. Has a total of 40 digs. 9 kills in total.

Melania Korenovsky-Cross Country

Ran the women’s 3 mile run in 24 minutes

Melania says, “Cross country is a hard sport. It takes a lot of mental strength as well as physical strength to get through difficult meets. I always tell myself, just keep going.”

Coach Naracci: “Melania Korenovsky (junior) is the sole runner on the team. She just bested her personal record by 2 1/2 minutes at the S.C.C. Divisional Championships at Guilford Fairgrounds and is progressing in her workouts leading up to the S.C.C. Championships and the Class MM State Championship at the end of the month. She is also a high honors student and will be featured in a story on the C.I.A.C. website in a few weeks.”

Abby Brooks (Swimming):

100 freestyle 1:08:28, 100 backstroke 1:16:62, 200 Medley Relay 2:14:01, 200 Freestyle Relay 1:58:94, and 400 Freestyle Relay 4:35:77.

Coach Boisvert: “2 districts; 5 schools; 11 athletes. Swimming has always been a small team, yet we are a mighty force in the water. No matter the score at the end of a meet, our team celebrates successes rather than failures. Our love for the sport and each other makes Girls’ Swimming a team. We support one another not only in the pool but also in school and in life. This week’s player of the week who exemplifies what it means to be a team player is freshman, Diana Melnyk. At any given meet, Diana can be found cheering on her teammates, bringing the hype and team pride wherever she goes.”
