Bronco Athletes Honored at 2017 Winter Sports Awards Ceremony PDF Print Email


By S. Quinn DeJoy and J. Murrer 

Mar. 22, 2017:  At the annual winter sports awards evening held on March 16 in the school auditorium, Athletic Council co-presidents Beth Finley and Jack Reilly introduced the winter sports teams. It was a successful season for the Bronxville athletes, who were honored with All-American, All-State, All-Section, and All-League recognition.

It was an outstanding season for many Broncos, including Sabrina Mellinghoff, Sophie Kohlhoff, Laura Holland, and Kaitlin Ryan, who were recognized with All-American honors after finishing third in the sprint medley relay at the New Balance National Championships on March 11. Ryan also earned All-American honors in the 800m, finishing in second place in 2:08.63, a new Bronxville School record.

At the New York State Swimming Championships, Andrew Babyak earned All-American recognition with his first-place finish in the 500yd free at the New York State Championships; Babyak and Tim Cushman also earned All-American honors in the 400-free relay. Bronxville High School turned out six All-Americans during the winter season, an incredible statistic for such a small school district.

The Broncos also had nine talented squash players participate in the prestigious U.S. Junior Championships held at Harvard and MIT this past weekend. It was a great weekend of squash for the Bronxville players, with particularly outstanding results for siblings Molly Stoltz (Girls Under 13) and Connor Stoltz (Boys Under 15), who both placed second in their age divisions. For more details of the weekend, please see this week's squash article on MyhometownBronxville.

Two Bronco basketball players, eighth-grader Brooke Tatarian and senior Jack Reilly, were named most valuable player for their respective leagues. Brian Senior, the coach for the boys' team, was also recognized during the awards ceremony for earning his 100th varsity win this season. Senior will be stepping down as head varsity coach.
