Broncos Jump Right in to the Fall Season PDF Print Email

Sep. 5, 2018:  The Bronxville School is back in session today, and members of the High School Athletic Council are showing their Bronco spirit by welcoming each freshman with a Bronco water bottle. The water bottles will come in handy as the temperatures today are expected to be over 90.

Unseasonably warm temperatures were a problem for the athletic teams last week, and this week will be more of the same. If the heat index or “feels like” temperature is over 90, the New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA) recommends water breaks every 15 minutes and encourages coaches to postpone practice to a cooler time. When the heat index rises above 96, all outdoor activity must be canceled. With temperatures soaring to the high 90’s last week, many practices had to be canceled or moved indoors.  

The Bronco preseason started in early August with football captains’ practice, which included the traditional sprinting up Hawthorne Road.  The fall season kicked off last week with both the boys’ and girls’ soccer teams playing in the first round of Broncofest, and girls clinched a first round win by defeating Eastchester 5-0, and the boys defeated Croton Harmon 1-0 on a goal Luke Doukas assisted by Theo Sperber.  The Bronco football team is playing in Class B this fall and lost the season opener on Saturday to a tough Nanuet squad, 33-12.

The season has just barely begun but the Broncos are already in the news. Senior soccer players Catherine Faville and Rachel Peacock were named to Lohud’s Elite 11, a list that includes the top eleven soccer players in all of Section 1.  This afternoon the girls’ team plays in Bardonia against a tough Albertus Magnus team. The Broncos, who have won six out of the last eight Section 1 Class B titles, lost to the Falcons in the playoffs last year.  

It will be a busy fall for the Bronco teams. There are a total of 23 varsity, junior varsity and modified teams, which compete in football, soccer, field hockey, cross country, swimming and diving and tennis. There is also a new girls’ varsity volleyball team that is a merged team with Mount Vernon.

The cross country teams start their season today with a home meet against Dobbs Ferry and Ardsley, the field hockey team will play home  today against Croton Harmon, and the first home football game is on Saturday at 3P.M. against Woodlands.

Go Broncos.
