Winter Sports Awards 2020: ETBE Ice Hockey Advances to the Sectional Final, Record Breaking Year for Track and Field and Eight Broncos Head to States PDF Print Email


By S. Quinn DeJoy and J. Murrer

Mar. 4, 2020:  Athletes who participated in winter sports were honored on February 26th at the annual Winter Sports Awards Ceremony.  During the winter season, Bronxville boys and girls compete in basketball, squash, skiing and indoor track and field.  In addition, boys compete in ice hockey and swimming.

Tri-Presidents for the Athletic Council, Grace McSherry, Hanna Bishop and Tim Murray, introduced the teams, and the varsity coaches handed out multiple awards. For a complete list of award winners, see below.

Some of the winter teams are combined with other schools including ice hockey, which is made up of players from Eastchester, Tuckahoe, Bronxville and Edgemont. 

When the sports awards night was held last week, ETBE ice hockey had not yet completed its season and was in the midst of playoffs.  

No one expected the 11th- seeded Eagles to advance far into the playoffs, but by Wednesday night at sports awards, they already had two wins under their belt.  In the first round, they surprisingly defeated No. 6 Cortlandt 7-3 and kept the momentum going into the game against No. 3 Scarsdale a few days later, winning by a score of 5-3.

When both wins were announced at the sports awards night, no one expected the miracle to continue, but the Eagles defeated No. 2 Mamaroneck on Thursday and headed to the Section 1, Division 1 championship game. The final game against Suffern, the top-ranked team in New York State, put an end to their incredible playoff-winning streak, with the Mounties winning 5-1.

Both boys’ swimming and indoor track and field have not yet completed their seasons and will participate in the state championships this coming weekend.   

Senior swimmer Finn Seibold, along with New Rochelle teammates, qualified for the New York State Championships in the 200yd medley relay and the 200yd freestyle relay. The state meet will take place at the Nassau County Aquatic Center on Friday and Saturday.

The New York State Indoor Track and Field Championship meet will take place at the Ocean Breeze Track and Field Athletic Complex on Staten Island on Saturday.

Jules Gravier will compete in the pole vault, and Milly Koenig will compete in the long jump.  Eve Balseiro, Caroline Ircha, Kelly Weild and Betsy Marshall will run in the 4x400m relay prelims, and Balseiro, Ircha, Alisa Kanganis and Milly Koenig will compete in the finals.

It was a record-breaking season for the track and field teams. Special awards were given to those Bronxville athletes who broke Bronxville school records.

This winter, senior Eve Balseiro broke schools record in the 400m, 600m, and 4x400m relay.  Also in the record-setting 4x400m relay were sophomores Caroline Ircha and Milly Koenig and senior Alisa Kanganis. Junior Jules Gravier broke the school record in the pole vault, and Koenig had a record-setting performance in the long jump.

On the boys’ side, junior Connor Randall set a new school record in the 200m dash.

The season will not end with the state championships. Members of the Bronxville girls’ indoor track and field team will compete at the New Balance Nationals Indoor Meet at The Armory the weekend of March 13th.

Go Broncos.
