Here are a few reports from our last week of the regular season.
What happens when you combine great coaching with a team of athletes who have been playing football together for 8+ years? You get the first ever undefeated season for Syosset South Woods Middle School Football Team. The Braves finished their 2009 football season last Saturday with a decisive win over Great Neck North, driving their unbeaten record to 6 - 0. Before Saturday’s game, Head Coach Finnegan reinforced the importance of this final game, reminding the kids about being prepared, concentrating on what’s ahead of them and making Syosset football history. To get to 6-0, Syosset also beat Glen Cove, Westbury, Great Neck South, Friends Academy and Carle Place.
The Syosset Hurricanes reached the finals of the Bruce Gary Columbus Day Softball Tournament in Bellmore on Columbus Day weekend. They lost to Merrick in the championship game but were 4-2 overall to capture second place in their first tournament. The Hurricanes, a SYAC Travel team, also compete in the NJBL Softball League, where they play up in the U12 Division.
With only one week to go in the regular season, our teams are continuing to impress with their skill, dedication and determination. Each and every team has continued to put on incredible shows that have kept our fans on the edge of their seat. Here’s what happened this week:
