Sports Captains’ thoughts on their homecoming games

Emma VanPraagh – “Cross country’s homecoming meet was a great day of competition. Both teams ran their races in strong packs, and the JV girls took home a first-place medal. All of our training from preseason until now is paying off, with fast performances across the board. I’m proud of our team’s continued commitment and positive outlook as we move into the championship season.” 

Luke Green – “It was terrible to have our homecoming game canceled, no high school kid wants to miss out on a game under the lights in front of their town, especially on homecoming. However, on the bright side of things, it was beneficial for us because we get to head to Somers for a full two weeks of rest and be healthy!”

Aidan McCafferty – “It was a great experience being a senior and a captain playing in the homecoming game. We played against a Somers team who have been one of the best teams throughout the years, but we put up a really good fight. We had more fans there than we’ve ever had before and it’s unfortunate we lost in overtime, but we gave Somers a battle.”

Julia Gunster – “We didn’t win which was unfortunate, but it was still fun because most of us know girls on the other team, so we were all cheering for each other.”

Katie Prisco, – Field hockey, doesn’t usually get crowds, so it was incredible to play when there was so much energy in the stands. The team was so grateful for the opportunity to give field hockey some much-needed exposure!

Tiana Richardson – “On Friday’s match, we played well as a team and deserved the win. Homecoming was a great day, and it was nice to end the day on a positive note!”
