Waldorf School’s Varsity Boys Soccer Team Wins IPPSAL Championship

Friday, 04 January 2013 00:00

For the fourth time in the past five years, Waldorf’s Varsity Boys Soccer Team traveled on Friday, Oct, 26 – just before Hurricane Sandy hit the region – to Locust Valley’s Portledge School, (a neutral site), in order to play in the IPPSAL Boys Soccer Championships. This year’s opponent was Lawrence Woodmere Academy (LWA) who split the regular season games with Waldorf, each earning a win and suffering a loss.

Waldorf started the game with the season’s trademark offensive surge - and with just a little more than six minutes into the game, junior tri-captain midfielder Peter Escribano neatly tucked the ball into the far post off a throw-in from senior tri-captain midfielder Orin Pearce. After five more shots that kept the LWA goalkeeper very busy, Pearce had another long throw-in that senior forward Marco Spitaliere fired into the near post for the 2-0 Waldorf lead. LWA started its own offensive rush and scored; cutting the Waldorf lead at the end of the first half to 2-1.

OBHS Athletes Excel In And Out Of Classrooms

Written by Donna Duffy Wednesday, 12 December 2012 13:29

After the last goal has been scored and championships have been won or lost in a season, statistics are relegated to history and coaches look ahead to next year. There is one statistic that lives on and is perhaps the most important of all, that is the GPA‘s of the athletes. At the end of each season, each team takes an average of the GPA’s of all students on the roster.

If the team average GPA is 90 percent or better, the team earns a Scholar/Athlete Award. In the 2012 Fall Sports Season, all but one of the teams garnered the average GPA to merit Team Scholar Athlete Awards. The football team had an average team GPA of 89.92 percent. They missed by eight one hundredths of a percent.

 

Vernon Mileage Club Goes The Distance

Friday, 30 November 2012 00:00

With the Internet and video games keeping more and more children inside and sedentary, the physical education team at the James H. Vernon School has been proactive in promoting fitness above and beyond the requisite gym classes.

This year the Vernon physical education teachers Jennifer Doxsee, Tom Neary and Keven Degnan brought an international program called the Mileage Club for third and fourth-graders to Vernon. The Mileage Club is a voluntary lunch time program that gets children to walk on the playground several times a week. Each child gets a mileage marker card that is checked each time a student completes a lap. For every mile completed the child will receive a “toe token” that can be put on a shoe lace or worn on a chain. A “5-mile charm” is given to commemorate that milestone. Almost the entire third and fourth-grade classes have already earned at least a one-mile token so far.
