It was a season that started out as “not meant to be,” but ended with gritty and heartfelt wins at the Long Island championship and regionals – and ultimately a historic return to the state championship.
“These girls never gave up and never stopped believing,” said Coach Gail Baker, last year’s Coach of the Year. “We had a lot of obstacles, including low numbers for both the JV and varsity, but we were still able to make it to the state semifinals and compete against our co-champion from last year, Hoosick Falls.”
New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks knows that and showcased those ideals at his recent ProCamps Worldwide Ultimate Fan Experience presented by Citi at Hofstra University on Saturday, Nov. 17. Nicks, a four-year veteran, used the team’s bye week to give future gridiron greats an inside look of what it is to be an NFL player.
