Apr. 8, 2020: In some sports, Bronxville High School joins forces with other Section 1 schools to form combined teams. 

Bronxville and New Rochelle athletes compete together on the Bronxville-New Rochelle ski team, led by Bronxville coaches Jim Agnello and Patrick Clark, and on the New Rochelle-Bronxville swim team, led by New Rochelle coaches, Kip Fierro, Michael Panzarino, and Bianco Grasso.

Six Bronxville-New Rochelle skiers were recently named to the LoHud All-Star list. For the girls’ team, eighth-grader Bailey Gilliam and seventh-graders Annie and Lucy Sevin were recognized on the honorable mention team.

This past season Gilliam and the Sevin sisters were also named All-League, and Gilliam was named the Most Valuable Skier for the second year in a row. These three middle school students train and race on weekends at the Stratton Winter Sports Club.

On the boys’ ski team, New Rochelle senior and team captain Jack Schlamowitz, sophomore Paul Hodulik, and eighth-grader Ray Thompson were named to the honorable mention All-Star list.

Schlamowitz, Hodulik, and Thompson received All-League recognition, and Schlamowitz was named the team’s Most Valuable Skier.

The ski team had a challenging season with the snowless winter and warm temperatures. They trained and raced at CampGaw Ski Area in Mahwah, New Jersey, and competed at Hunter Mountain for the Section 1 Championships.

LoHud also recognized the Bronxville-New Rochelle swim team. Finn Seibold and New Rochelle teammates Jonathan Carsen, Myles Dower, and Matthew Pena were named to the LoHud All-Star second team for the 200 yard freestyle relay. Seibold, a senior and captain of the team, was named All-League this winter.

The 200 yard freestyle relay team placed second at the Section 1 Championships (1:29.42) and 15th among public schools at the New York State Championships (1:29.74). 

Carsen, a sophomore at New Rochelle High School, was named to the Lohud second team for the 100 yard freestyle.

LoHud Names Westchester/Putnam Indoor Track All-Stars: Bronxville Girls Named to First Team in Five Events PDF Print Email


By S. Quinn DeJoy and J. Murrer

Apr. 1, 2020:  After an incredible indoor season, the Bronxville girls’ track and field team is on hold for the spring season.

“It’s definitely been a crazy few weeks,” said Eve Balseiro. “As a second-semester senior, there is a layer of frustration because we’ve looked forward to these months for a long time, and now we’ve been asked not to leave our houses.”

Balseiro’s frustration is understandable. She had a tremendous indoor track season and was recently named to LoHud’s Westchester/Putnam All-Star team in the 600m. The Westchester Track Officials’ Association also named her the Most Outstanding Track Athlete in Westchester County.  

One of Balseiro’s highlights of the winter season was the 4x400m relay win at the Millrose Games in early February. Balseiro, Caroline Ircha, Alisa Kanganis, and Milly Koenig won the event in a school record time of 3:53.27, posting the 6th fastest time in the U.S. at that point in the season.

“Prior to the start of the season, my goal was to medal as a relay at Millrose Games, and winning was not something I had seriously considered,” said Balseiro. “To see my other relay members all come together at one time and run well was a proud moment.”

Also named to LoHud’ s Westchester/Putnam All-Star first team were sophomore Caroline Ircha (300m), sophomore Milly Koenig (long jump), the 4x200m relay team (Ircha, Koenig, Kelly Weild, Kanganis, and Sabrina Mellinghoff) and the 4x400m relay team (Koenig, Ircha, Kanganis, Balseiro, and Betsy Marshall). 

Named to the LoHud’s All-Star second team were Jules Gravier (pole vault) and the 4x800m relay team (Marshall, Ava Black, Madeline Stupart, Balseiro, and Maeve Sullivan.) 

Milly Koenig received honorable mention in the 300m.

It was a highly successful, record-breaking indoor track season for the Bronxville girls. Decisions about whether school and school sports will resume will likely come in the next few weeks. 

Go Broncos. 


Bronxville Athletes Compete at States: Girls’ Track 4x400m Places 3rd and Boys’ Swimming 200yd Medley Relay Places 7th PDF Print Email


By S. Quinn DeJoy and J. Murrer

Mar. 11, 2020: The Bronxville 4x400m relay team competed at the New York State Indoor Track and Field Championships this past weekend at the Ocean Breeze Athletic Complex on Staten Island. 

Milly Koenig, Caroline Ircha, Alisa Kanganis, and Eve Balseiro placed third, breaking the Bronxville School record for the second time this season. 

In the final 4x400m heat, it was a hard fought battle for the top three teams. At the end of a very competitive and very fast race, Bishop Loughlin took top honors with a time of 3:51.46, just edging out Warwick Valley by just 21 hundredths of a second (3:51.67). Bronxville was close behind with a time of 3:52.78. All three teams ran times that beat the New York State meet record, which was set in 1994. 

The Bronxville 4x400m team of Balseiro, Ircha, Kelly Weild, and Betsy Marshall placed first in the prelims to qualify Bronxville for the final heat. Their time, 3:56.75, moved them to 4th place on the All-Time Bronxville list. 

In field events, Jules Gravier placed 8th in the pole vault (10-6), and Koenig placed 21st in the long jump (16-1.75).

The New York State Swimming Championships also took place this past weekend at the Nassau Aquatic Center. Bronxville senior Finn Seibold, who swims for the combined New Rochelle-Bronxville team, swam in two relays with teammates from New Rochelle. 

The 200 yd medley relay, Seibold, Narmeri Franklyn, Myles Dower, and Jonathan Carsen, placed 7th among public schools and 10th in the Federation with a time of 1:38.16. Seibold, Dower, Carsen, and Matthew Pena, placed 15th among public schools in the 200 yd freestyle relay (1:29.74).

Spring sports began practice this week, but the Bronco girls have one more race before the indoor season ends. They will compete in the SMR at the New Balance Nationals Indoor this coming weekend. 

Go Broncos.

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.

Bronxville High School Boys Squash Team Finishes 10th in the Nation at High School Nationals; Girls Team Finishes 4th in its Division PDF Print Email


Bronxville High School Boys Squash team with Coach Tunde Ajagbe

By Staff

Feb. 26, 2020: The Bronxville High School Squash teams traveled this past weekend to Hartford, Connecticut, to compete in the U.S. Squash High School National Team Championship.

A total of 110 boys teams and 85 girls teams competed at the event.

The Bronxville boys team competed in Division 1 with the 16 top squash programs in the nation.

For the second year in a row, Bronxville was the only public school in Division 1, a testament to the strength and depth of its team.

For the first time in its high school history, Bronxville also fielded a Girls Team, which competed in Division 5.

Boys Team

The Bronxville boys team had four seniors, Conner Stoltz, Harry Charlton, Justin Barr, and Robbie Cruikshank, two sophomores, Molly Stoltz and Peter Vorbach, and two freshmen, Charlie Clifford and Brooks Clifford.

Bronxville faced the #6 seed, the Hotchkiss School, in the first round. The Hotchkiss team, which included Harry Charlton's brother, Sam Charlton, won the match 5-2.

Bronxville went on to the consolation draw to defeat both the Poly Prep Day School and Phillips Academy Andover 4-3. Bronxville faced 8th seed St. Ann's School in its final match, falling 5-2, finishing runner-up in the consolation and 10th place overall.

Conner Stoltz and Harry Charlton, playing at the #1 and #2 positions, went undefeated in the tournament. Both boys have had stellar high school careers, having both played in the top two positions on the Bronxville team since the ninth grade. Both were also nominated for All American recognition three times. 

In addition to wins by Conner Stoltz and Harry Charlton, wins by Molly Stoltz at #5, Charlie Clifford at #6 and Peter Vorbach at #7 contributed to team match wins.

Lead by the four seniors, Bronxville also repeated as the Fairwest Public School League Champion for the 2019-20 season. The team went undefeated again, winning every individual and team match and every game they played.  

Amy Charlton, the Chair of the Boys Division of the League, noted that this is the strongest performance at Nationals that the League has ever had. 

Sheila Stoltz, a player parent, added, "So exciting to watch such an accomplished group of athletes come together and be the best public school squash team in the country."

Next fall, Conner Stoltz will be playing for Harvard, Harry Charlton will be playing for Tufts, and Robbie Cruikshank will be playing for Denison.

Sarah Clifford, a player parent said "It will be tough to lose Conner, Harry, Justin and Robbie next year but there's no doubt that the players on next year's team will work hard to be their best and carry on Bronxville's winning tradition."

Girls Team


Bronxville High School Girls Squash Team

For the first time in history, Bronxville fielded a girls squash team at High School Nationals.

The girls' team had one junior, Lainey Neildtwo sophomores, Katie Hennessy and Sabrina Lathamand five freshmenEllie Clifford, Fiona Denning, Lizzie Langhoff, Susan Xu and Helen O'Neill.

The girls' team got off to a great start defeating Greens Farms Academy 4-3 in the first round and Lancaster Country Day School 4-3 in the second round. They then faced Loomis Chaffee in the semi-finals and narrowly lost 3-4.

The team played Tabor Academy in the 3/4 playoff, and fell in a very close 3-4 match, finishing 4th overall in Division V.

Lainey Neild, Ellie Clifford, and Katie Hennessy all went undefeated in the tournament.

"This was an excellent first-year performance for the Bronxville Girls Team," said Sarah Clifford. 

The Bronxville boys and girls teams train at the Bronxville Field Club under Director of Squash Supreet Singh, and BFC coaches Tunde Ajagbe and Julia LeCoq. 

Tunde and Julia attended the tournament with the kids, coaching the players every step of the way.

Amy Charlton noted that the team is lucky to have these outstanding coaches.

She also offered special thanks to the parents and chaperones who attended, as well as high school athletic director Karen Peterson and the Bronxville School, all vital to making the program a success.
