I cannot believe the Fall sports season is almost complete. There has been so many great things to celebrate. During the month of October, our sports teams have honored Breat Cancer Awareness month in many fashions. The Swim team started off the month by doing a swim-a-thon to raise money for Lionheart - a local charity lead by our swim coach, Martha Phelan. To wrap up the month and PINK week, Volleyball and many other teams raised funds for another local charity - The Sister's Project. The charity chapter serves the communities of North Haven and Wallingford providing financial assistance to those families affected by this horrific disease. Volleyball junior - Antonia Barbiero spearheaded this campaign and helped raise just over $5000. Numerous other teams were involved as well.
Athletically, the teams and their members had some memorable experiences. Boys' Cross Country runner - junior Ryan Brennan, finish in 8th place in the Class L State meet which qualified him for the State Open (finishing 40th overall) and earning him All State honors - Great job! Ultimately, earning him a spot on teh New Haven Register All Area Team. Boys' Soccer team and Oronoque Division co-champions, senior captain - Ryan Chieffo was awarded the Greater New Haven Soccer Officials Sportsmanship award and honored with a dinner and plaque this past weekend. He was the second member of his familiy to recieve the award - his father Reid was awarded the same award when he played for North Haven...a few years ago. Congratulations Reid family. In Girls' swimming, the team racked up some huge wins, beating Branford for the first time since the team's inception in the 1970's and beating the Daniel Hand lady tigers for the first time in 14 years. Many swimmers are still competing in the Class L state meet this weekend with hopes of qualifiying for the State Open - Great job and keep it up! Finally, the football team led by Coach Anthony Sagnella continues to accumulate victories, beating Daniel Hand earlier this month and leading the team to a 7-1 record. The final three games with Foran, Darien, and Thanksgiving Day rival - Amity High School will determine if the Indians return to the Class L Football Playoffs this year.
