Dec. 18, 2019:  The Bronxville winter sports teams have been in action for just over a week, and the Broncos are already showing signs of a strong season ahead. Two events took place this past weekend, both of which were named for former Bronxville coaches. The Bill Green Basketball Tournament took place Friday and Saturday, and the Jim Mitchell Track and Field Invitational was held on Saturday evening. 

The basketball tournament was named in honor of Bill Green, a World War II veteran, who worked as the Athletic Director for Bronxville High School for most of his career and coached varsity basketball. The track and field invitational was named for Bronxville's legendary track and field coach, Jim Mitchell, who retired in 2019. 

At the Bill Green tournament, the Bronxville girls' advanced to the championship game with a 32-25 win over Tuckahoe and took home the tournament trophy with a 36-31 victory over the Valhalla Vikings.

In the tournament final, Bronxville's Ashley Wetty scored 13 points and had ten rebounds, and Stella Daskalakis scored 12 points. Shelby Sekinski led Valhalla with 12 points. Wetty and Hanna Bishop were named to the All Tournament Team, and Wetty was named the Tournament MVP.

The boys' basketball team defeated Nanuet 68-59 in the opening round of the Bill Green tournament. In that game, Jack Hershberg led with 18 points, and teammates Will Flanagan and Chris Kelty scored 13 and 12, respectively. 

In the boys' championship game against Lakeland, the Broncos were ahead 37-34 halftime but eventually lost to the Hornets 82-68. 

The Bronxville girls' track and field team had a great showing at the Mitchell Invitational, where 34 schools competed at The Armory. 

Bronxville's 4x200m relay, Caroline Ircha, Milly Koenig, Kelly Weild, and Alisa Kanganis, won the event in 1:46.23, posting the fastest time in New York State this season and ranking #8 in the U.S. 

Also placing first were Eve Balseiro in the 600m (1:3;9.25) and Caroline Ircha in the 300m (41.97).

Milly Koenig placed 2nd in the 300m (41.99), Kelly Weild placed 5th in the 300m (42.88), and Ava Black was 3rd in the 600m (1:40.01). 

In field events, Remi Mellinghoff placed 3rd in the triple jump (32-7), and Jules Gravier placed first in the pole vault, breaking The Bronxville School record for the second week in a row.  

Maddy Stupart ran the 1000m in 3:08.89, the fastest time in the U.S. by an eighth-grader this season. 

For the boys, Connor Randall ran the 300m in 36.67, the second fastest time in Bronxville School history. 

The Bronxville School will be off for two weeks for the holiday, but after Christmas, the athletes will be back in action. The boys' and girls' basketball teams will play in a tournament at Hastings High School on the 27th and 28th. 

Go Broncos.
