Mar. 1, 2017:  The Bronco winter sports season is winding down after two weeks of playoffs and state qualifiers. On February 18, the boys’ basketball team lost in the first round of playoffs to Putnam Valley, and on February 22, the girls’ basketball team lost its bid for a spot in the Section 1 Class B final four with a 72-58 loss to Woodlands. 

In the girls’ sectional quarterfinal game against Woodlands, the Broncos and Falcons were evenly matched, with Bronxville leading 33-31 at halftime, but in the second half Woodlands found their rhythm, outscoring the Broncos by 41-25. The final score was 72-58.

Bronco eighth-grader Brook Tatarian contributed to the Bronco offense with five three-point shots and a total of 23 points, but Woodlands had a weapon of their own, sophomore Teisha Hyman, who also hit five three-pointers and had a total of 28 points in the game.

The Broncos have played well together on the court this season, and during the Woodlands game, seven Broncos contributed to the scoring: Tatarian, Olivia Jensen, Ellie Walsh, Natalie Kister, Ashley Kaye, Aly Schultz, and Nan Carpenter.

The girls’ team had the best season in many years, finishing with a 16-6 record. The girls won the league championship and were undefeated in league play (8-0).

At the Section 1 Indoor Track and Field State Qualifiers held this past Saturday at The Armory, Bronxville senior Kaitlin Ryan won the 1000m (2:50.84) for the third straight year and will be the sole Bronco heading to the New York State Championships on March 4.

Ryan, who won the prestigious Con Ed Scholar Athlete of the Week award two weeks ago, is ranked second in New York State in the 1000m.  This winter, she set a personal record of 2:48.42 at the Section 1 Class C Championships. Katelyn Tuohy from North Rockland is currently ranked number one in the state, with a time of 2:47.86.

For the first time in many years, the state championships will not be held at Cornell University but will take place in Staten Island at the Ocean Breeze Track and Field Athletic Complex. In indoor track, there is no division by classes; athletes from across the state compete against each other without regard to school size.

Two Bronxville girls’ relay teams fared well at the state qualifiers. The 4x400m relay (Maeve Sullivan, Betsy Marshall, Eve Balsiero, and Caroline Brashear) placed second with a time of 4:10.63, and the 4x800m relay (Sydney Coddington, Patty Haggerty, Laura Holland, and Ryan) ran the best of the season in 9:21.95, finishing in third place.

For the boys’ team, Alex Rizzo had a strong fifth-place finish in the 1600m (4:22.85), and brother Matt placed sixth in the 1000m with a time of 2:35.62. Avery Kane placed sixth in the shot put with a throw of 43’-11.5”.

Go Broncos.
