Nov. 11, 2020: The Bronco teams are headed into the final stretch of the regular season and will head to playoffs next week. In an effort to limit travel due to COVID, the usual sectional tournament will not be held but instead teams in Section 1 will compete in regional playoffs. It is a shortened playoff season, which starts Monday and continues until November 23rd so that the fall season will be completed prior to the Thanksgiving break.  All of the Bronco teams will compete in the Southern Westchester Small School Region.

Below is a look at how the teams fared in the past week, and where they stand as they head into playoffs.

Boys’ Soccer

The boys’ soccer team won the League Championship in this abbreviated season, and is currently the only undefeated Bronco team with an 8-0-0 record. They are the top-ranked team in Class B with Pleasantville and Valhalla trailing behind in the No. 2 and 3 spots.

The team is led by seniors Henry Sheehan, Liam Sands, Macklin Pettee, Griffin Patterson, J.P Swenson, Chris Aherne, Jack Bodell, and Casey McKhann. Underclassmen Will Redman, Aidan Sulmiski, Albert Van Ness, Ellis Goodson, Mark Pytosh and Chris Patterson have been a huge addition this year. The ,Broncos, ranked No. 1 in Class B by LoHud, have two games left before heading into the regional playoffs on Monday. They play home against Scarsdale B today.

Girls’ Tennis

The girls’ tennis team entered the Southern Westchester Small School regionals this past week, and Bronxville’s top doubles team, Katie Formato and Rory Christian, defeated Rye Neck 8-1 in the semifinals on Saturday to advance to the regional championship. In a thrilling two-hour match at Irvington yesterday, Formato and Christian defeated Irvington’s Charlotte Calick and Clio Salles-Spar 6-1, 7-6 to win the regional title.

Girls’ Soccer

The girls’ soccer team (6-2-1) is ranked second in Class B and third in the regional playoffs behind No. 1 Pleasantville (10-0) and No. 2 Tuckahoe (5-1-1).  In the game Monday against Horace Greeley, Alex Doukas scored twice and Lily Jebejian added one more to give the Broncos a 3-1 victory. Goalkeeper Milly Koenig had six saves. According to LoHud, Jebejian is ranked 6th in scoring in Section 1 with 11 goals and 6 assists. The Broncos have two regular season games left. They play at Dobbs Ferry today at 2:00 and at Lakeland on Saturday at 11:00.

Field Hockey

The field hockey team (6-3-1) suffered three losses in the last week including  a 3-0 loss to No. 1 ranked Mamaroneck and a 2-1 loss to White Plains. In the game against White Plains, Carmen Phillips scored with an assist from Ellie Clifford, and Rachel Roberts played a great defensive game with nine saves.  Last week, Bronxville forward Olivia Gunther was voted LoHud Player of the Week for her performance in the 3-0 win over Valhalla at the end of October. Gunther scored two unassisted goals in that game. The Broncos will play their final game of the regular season at home against Rye on Saturday at 10:00.

Cross Country

The cross-country championships will be run at the Hudson Valley Sports Dome in Milton on Nov. 21-22.

Go Broncos.

Bronxville Girls’ Cross Country Team Wins League Title Against Irvington

By S. Quinn DeJoy and J. Murrer

Nov. 4, 2020: There has been steady improvement for the girls on the cross country team since they received the go ahead to practice and compete in late September. At the League Championships held on Halloween at the Hudson Valley Sportsdome in Milton, the varsity squad won the league title with seven of the top ten Broncos running a personal best for that course. 

Eighth-grader Maddy Williams won the individual league title in 20:21.4. Williams joined the varsity team this year after having run on the modified team in seventh grade. She is off to a great start during this abbreviated season. At the 2nd Milton Invitational on October 24th, Williams placed 2nd in 19:34.9 while competing against athletes from Eastchester, Fox Lane, Nanuet, Lakeland/Panas, and Pleasantville. Her time in that race was the 3rd fastest 5K time in Section 1 this season. 

Co-captains Betsy Marshall and Avery Widen placed 3rd and 4th at leagues with times of 21:03.5 and 21:17.1, respectively. Rory Denning, also a captain of the team, placed 7th in 21:54.4.

“It was my PR for the course,” said Marshall. “I was running with my good friend and co-captain Avery Widen. We have a really good pace together, and we both push each other pretty hard. If I am falling behind, she will help me get going and same goes for her. We always finish close to each other.”

Because of COVID, the League Championship only included two teams. “We only ran against Irvington because Hastings and Dobbs Ferry had been shut down due to COVID,” said Marshall. “We were looking forward to competing against Dobbs Ferry because we lost to them in sectionals last year.”

The Broncos hope to compete against Dobbs Ferry in a few weeks at the Section 1 Championships. Bronxville had an edge over Dobbs Ferry at the 2nd Milton Invitational. In the merge of the four races that day, Bronxville finished first and was followed by Dobbs Ferry (2), Irvington (3), and Albertus Magnus (4).

The Broncos have adjusted to training and competing in masks even though at the beginning of the season, it was quite a challenge. Despite the COVID restrictions and the shortened season, the team has come together earlier this season than usual. 

“Last year, our team really started to solidify towards the end of the season,” said Marshall. “This year, we have been a really strong tight pack the whole season. It may be because we were all training so hard before team practices started.”

The Broncos only have two meets remaining. The Westchester County Championships will take place on November 14th and the Section 1 Championships on the 21st. The State Championships will not be held this year. 

Runners who finished in the top fifteen in both the League Championships and 2nd Milton Invitational are listed below.

Bill Barton and Matt McKenna Play All 13 NYC Municipal Golf Courses

By Bill Barton, Former Bronxville Village Trustee and High Net Worth Banker for Goldman Sachs

Dec. 7, 2016:  Have you ever passed Van Cortlandt Park or driven over the Throgs Neck Bridge and seen golf courses in the city and wondered what playing them would be like? Well I have, and after retiring at the end of 2015 decided to make it my mission to play each of the 13 municipal golf courses within the city limits.

My good friend Matt McKenna also loved the idea, so we played them together. Our adventure started in the nearby Bronx on a 9-hole track, Mosholu Golf Course, on April 25. We first met for breakfast at the Riverdale Diner on Kingsbridge Avenue. I should add that we have combined our rounds with interesting borough dining experiences. We were paired up with two local Bronx gentlemen, Cornell and Ted. They gave us hints about the course and Matt and I each broke 45--a goal for us.

Our next round was at the iconic Van Cortlandt Park Golf Course, America's oldest public course, founded in 1895. Joining us were Steve Mills and a former Bronxville resident friend, John Curtis. What an experience, and we each paid only $45 with a cart! The locker room was featured in a scene from the movie Wall Street. There are replicas of the original lockers that held the golf shoes of a few famous New Yorkers--Moe, Larry, and Curley, as well as Joe Lewis, Willie Mays, and The Babe. Despite a few holes running along busy highways, there are some spots where you'd swear you were in the country. One hole is even over 600 yards long. We all played decently. For lunch, we visited the king of Irish pubs, The Rambling House, not even 15 minutes south of Bronxville, in Woodlawn. Shepherd's pie and Irish sausages are popular meal choices. This is a neighborhood where you might see red-headed residents walking down the street carrying hurling sticks.

In late May, Matt and I hit Pelham Bay and immediately ran into our partners Cornell and Ted from Mosholu. We were already becoming part of the regular crowd! This is one of the less interesting layouts but well kept. Our pace of play was much slower than our first two rounds, so we had to quit early because of previous obligations. A funny memory stands out. At a particularly bucolic spot on the course, Matt observed that we could be in Maryland or Ohio. But we kept hearing a sound like clanking golf balls being washed in a big bin as you would at a driving range. I finally figured out what was causing this--we were pretty close to the NYPD shooting range at Rodman's Neck, so this wasn't Maryland, it was the Bronx!

Our final Bronx course was Split Rock, considered one of the gems of the publics. We played it on June 7 with the same group who played Van Cortlandt. It is a challenging, nicely designed track, but the tees were pretty bare. The northern edge of the grounds borders Westchester County. I had a particularly good round and won a little money from my fellows. A lobster roll lunch at the Sea Shore Restaurant on City Island followed and was terrific.

Next, we crossed the bridge into Queens and played Clearview, the busiest of the municipals. It is fairly routine with holes paralleling each other but like the others, in decent shape given all its play. Matt, Steve, and I were paired up with a nice gentleman originally from Korea named Kong, who was good company. Following the round, we walked into a nearby restaurant in Whitestone for lunch, the Jägerhaus. The bar was filled with Croatian supporters of the FIFA World Cup match between Croatia and the Czech Republic. Another trip into a foreign world in the restaurants of the boroughs!

Forest Park, along the Jackie Robinson Parkway, followed and was one of our favorites. It is quite wooded (thus the name) and on the second hole a hawk swooped down onto the fairway. Matt, Steve, and I had good rounds and we played the blue tees at 6053 yards, pretty typical of the city courses, although some are longer. Our hearty lunch was at one of Queens's most authentic German restaurants, Zum Stammtisch in Glendale. Glad we didn't eat before the round!

On August 8, we chalked up another round in Queens--Douglaston, which used to be a private club and was acquired by the city in the early 60s. A couple of the holes were shortened to allow for a few houses to be built on the former grounds but was pretty nice and quiet, near the Nassau County border. Lunch was at Il Bacco, a classy ristorante on Northern Boulevard.

Then it was off to Brooklyn, home of two courses--Marine Park and Dyker Beach. Marine Park is very open, almost links-like, and skirts the wetlands of the borough. Joe Marshall, Matt's friend from Point o' Woods, accompanied us and it was his first NYC golf experience. We all agreed that this was a terrific course and a new greens keeper is working hard to bring it into excellent condition. How could we be so close to Coney Island and not try the original Nathan's Famous for a hot dog? They taste better there!

We played Dyker Beach on September 26. This was where Earl Woods, Tiger's father, learned to play golf when he was stationed at Fort Hamilton in 1972. It was a fun course and has a wonderful view of the Verrazano Bridge. Matt, Steve, and I then enjoyed a few slices at Lenny's on 86th Street in Bensonhurst which perhaps served the most famous pizza in a movie--the two slices John Travolta ordered and folded together in the opening scene of Saturday Night Fever as he was walking to the cadence of "Stayin' Alive." Good pizza!

Our final Queens course was Kissena, played on November 11, a short track (4665 yards). Matt, Steve, and I were joined by our Bronxville friend Frank Bergold, who grew up in that area and came along for neighborhood guidance. It was a nice course and had some challenging holes. We also started having to play the "leaf rule," as we were hitting that time of year. Frank suggested Flushing for lunch and we enjoyed an upscale restaurant experience at Mulan, self-described as "Modern Asian Cuisine."


Staten Island hosts three public courses (and a private one). Matt and I played La Tourette and South Shore on Election Day. We started quite early and were hit with an hour frost delay before teeing off. While we waited, we saw a number of deer grazing by the clubhouse. This borough is certainly suburban in its feel and at places even rural. In the afternoon, we played South Shore, which we finished just before dark. From what we observed, plus the folks we talked and played with, it was clear that this area was leaning toward Trump. La Tourette is in great shape and very attractive, less so South Shore, but it too was a nice track.

The final outing was to Silver Lake, in Staten Island, on November 21, with snowflakes accompanying our round, almost seven months to the day since we started. Silver Lake is known as "the working man's golf club" and was a very attractive course despite its seasonal bareness and leaves spread everywhere on the ground. I even parred the number-1 handicap hole. Matt concluded that it was his worst round, as wool gloves are a lot bulkier than a regular golf glove. We concluded with a very tasty tapas lunch at Beso, only a few minutes up the hill from the Staten Island Ferry entrance, where we took our favorite picture of our borough excursion, Matt and Bill holding our golf clubs with the skyline and Freedom Tower in the background.

A word about Trump Links at the Whitestone Bridge. This is not a true municipal course so it wasn't officially included on our list. It is, however, a spectacular layout and is in world-class shape. The cost per round is over $200, so out of reach for many NYC golfers. Having splurged and played it once before, we did not include it in this experience.

NYC plays a major role in the history of golf in the U.S. All in all, our tour of the NYC golf courses took us into some previously unknown neighborhoods and introduced us to gems of nature within the world's greatest city. The addition of restaurants rounded out the fullness of this most fascinating adventure!

Bronxville Field Hockey Opens the Season With a 4-0-1 Record

By S. Quinn DeJoy and J. Murrer

Oct. 28, 2020: With all the COVID restrictions that Bronxville athletes have been facing this year, it was comforting to see one tradition continue. On Sunday, the Bronxville field hockey team gathered for the annual painting of the shed. It was a good team bonding moment for all the girls during these unusual times.  

“It has definitely been pretty tough,” said Co-captain Marielle Dibbini. “Honestly, I am just so thankful that we have a season. My co-captain and I try to do everything we can do. We have planned several outdoor team dinners so we could all be together.”

The Broncos won the Class C State Championship last year and are off to a good start this season despite losing almost half of the 2019 team. 

“After graduating ten last year and losing a key starter to private school, we had ten positions to fill,” said Coach Jacquelyn Frawley. “The girls have all stepped up to the challenge and have been very flexible as we adjust positioning around the field.”

Despite the large turnover of players, the Bronco defense has worked well together, giving up only three goals in five games. There are three seniors on defense, including Co-captain Caroline Palermo, Annabelle Krause, and goalie Rachel Roberts. In her first year as starting goalie, Roberts was recognized by Coach Frawley as a “super solid senior leader.”

The Bronco offense is led by junior Olivia Gunther and sophomore Isabela Fenner, who teamed up to score the first two goals in the 4-0 win against Pleasantville last week. 

Mid-fielder Dibbini is the only offensive senior starter on this relatively young team. There are twenty girls on the roster, but only five are seniors. 

“We have a lot of rising stars including freshman Frannie Krause, sophomores Ellie Clifford, Lucie Curran, Fiona Denning, and Hudson Zivic,” noted Coach Frawley. 

These young players are already making an impact. Zivic scored the final goal in last week’s Pleasantville game, and Frannie Krause scored the only goal in the 1-0 win over Croton last Saturday.

The Broncos are currently ranked 6th in the Lohud Power Rankings, a list that includes schools of all sizes across Section I. The top five schools, Lakeland, Horace Greeley, Mamaroneck, North Salem, and Suffern, have yet to suffer a loss. The Broncos tied North Salem 1-1 on October 17th and will play Mamaroneck on November 5th.

There is an away game against Valhalla today, and the Broncos return home on Friday for a 4:00pm game against White Plains. 

Go Broncos.

The Bronxville School Athletic Department Launches a New Website and Introduces Live Streaming

By Katharine Outcalt

Oct. 28, 2020: The Bronxville School Athletic Department is pleased to announce the launch of their new website. The new site https://athletics.bronxvilleschool.org/  is the work of former Athletic Director Karen Peterson, the PTA HS Athletic Council, and current Athletic Director Joe Haven.

In addition to up-to-date content, the new site features game schedules, athletic forms, news and event information, and full color photos of student-athletes. The website, which is mobile-friendly, is powered by FinalSite and was designed to provide students, parents, coaches, and community members with easy access to all Bronco Sports information.

As Bronxville enters their third week of Fall sports, the Bronco athletes are enjoying some sense of normalcy as they continue to compete. Though their Homecoming events were canceled due to Covid-19, the High School Athletic Department and PTA Athletic Councils made it a priority to honor the fall seniors at the start of the season to ensure their recognition in the face of a very uncertain season. With the luck of good weather on their side, 48 seniors were honored before the start of their first home game. Fall sports competing this season include boys and girls soccer, boys and girls cross country, girls tennis, and field hockey. Jackie Frawley, Bronxville's field hockey coach, expressed her appreciation for Senior Day in the following note;

Dear BXV Athletic Council & Athletic Department, 

I want to express my appreciation on behalf of the Varsity Field Hockey team. Yesterday's senior game was above and beyond any expectations going into such an unknown school year and fall sports season. The organization behind the scenes certainly did not go unnoticed. From senior banners, game music and announcements, balloons, flowers, and most of all COVID considerations, it truly was a great day to be a Bronco!!

Sincerest thanks for making it happen for our 2020 student athletes!

-- Jacquelyn Frawley
