May 12, 2021: The varsity teams are two weeks into the regular season and competing at a high level. The baseball team is undefeated, and the girls’ lacrosse team has received the number one ranking in all of Section 1. There is a lot going on in this abbreviated season, and the Bronco athletes are up to the task.

Here is a look at how the teams are faring so far this spring.


The baseball team has opened with wins over Blind Brook (11-1), Edgemont (12-1), and Valhalla (4-2). In their most recent game against Tuckahoe, it was a pitcher’s duel, pitting Bronxville’s Spencer Dessart against Tuckahoe’s Mike Meyers. With great pitching on both sides, the game remained scoreless until the final inning when Bronxville’s Jamie Valdez walked with the bases loaded for a game winning RBI. 

Dessart is 2-0 on the mound with wins against Blind Brook and Tuckahoe. He has 20 strikeouts while giving up only five hits and one walk, posting a 0.00 ERA in 12 innings pitched.  Dessart also had an impressive week offensively, batting .615 with four RBIs and four runs scored. His contributions have helped lead the Broncos to their 4-0 start.

Strong pitching performances also came from Charlie Vail, with his victory over Edgemont where he allowed one run in five innings. Ted Heraty and Chris Lockwood have also contributed to the Bronco’s solid pitching.  

At bat, Peter Coquillette leads the team with a .667 average amassing ten hits in four games. Also contributing offensively are Ted Herary (BA, .462) and Andrew Holub (BA, .364).

“Our biggest strength has been our team chemistry led by captains Spencer Dessart, Charlie Vail, and Peter Coquillette,” noted Coach Anthony Vaglica.

The Broncos will play Westlake at home today at 4:30.

The boys’ and girls’ track teams had outstanding performances at the Loucks Games last weekend. The combined points scored for the two Bronxville teams placed them second overall at the meet just behind Newburgh.

“This is a pretty remarkable finish given the number of teams competing and our small size,” said Coach Brian Halling.

At the Loucks Games held at White Plains High School last weekend, John Ryan was a Bronco standout placing second in the mile run with an outstanding 4:21 for the full mile.  Ryan is off to a great start this spring finishing first in the mile at the Pirate Relays last week in a time of 4:27.63.

In addition to Ryan, seven Bronco boys received medals at the Loucks Games in three different relays. The varsity 4x400m relay (Ian Gegenwarth, Eric Fleisig, Johnny Moynihan, JW Henningson) placed 6th in 3:42.14,  and the varsity sprint medley relay placed 4th in 3:43.14 (Fleisig, Moynihan, Henningson, and Ryan).  

Younger members of the team also fared well. The freshman/sophomore distance medley relay (Will Hogue, Ellis Goodson, Gegenwarth, and Skylar Lau) placed third in 12:03.37.

The girls’ team also had a strong showing. Millie Koenig came in first place in the long jump with a distance of 16-8.25, a 7.25-inch personal best. She is now tied for No. 3 in the state. Also scoring for the Broncos were Scarlett Kane, who placed 6th in the 100m racewalk in 9:39.60, the 4x100m relay team (2nd, 52.17), the sprint medley relay (2nd, 4:16.42) and the distance medley relay (5th, 13:23.32).

The boys’ lacrosse team had wins over Irvington (17-5) and Haldane (21-5) but lost their home opener to top-ranked Class C Briarcliff, 10-9. In the game against the Bears, Tommy Garofalo and Henry Sheehan scored three goals apiece, and Connor Randall scored two. The Bronco boys moved up to No. 7 in the LoHud Power Rankings this week. They will play Putnam Valley at home today at 4:30.

With wins over No. 1 Suffern (10-8), No. 2 John Jay Cross River (10-7), No. 7 Somers (14-12) and No. 4 Yorktown (9-6) in an eight-day stretch, the Bronco girls jumped up to the top of the Lohud Power Rankings. It is an impressive ranking for the Class D Broncos who are competing against the top lacrosse programs in all of Section 1.

In the Somers game this past weekend, Victoria Ruffo scored four goals, and Caroline Ircha Molly Krestinski, Megan Krestinski, and Bridget Finely scored two apiece. The girls will face Pleasantville at home on Friday at 4:30.

Bronxville’s first doubles team, middle schoolers Rhys Brown and Patrick Kenny, picked up a win as did the second doubles team, senior Macklin Pettee and junior Spencer Blumenreich (6-1- 6-1). The third doubles team, senior Liam Angelone and sophomore Jay Marshall, also won their match 6-0, 6-1.

Junior Molly Stoltz was named to Lohud’s Stellar 6, recognizing her as one of the top golfers in Section 1. She was named the most valuable golfer for the Bronxville team in 2019. Molly also plays squash and is ranked fourth nationally among GU19.

Bicycle Sunday Season is Underway and Has Been Expanded

By Josefa Paganuzzi, Thompson & Bender

May 12, 2021: Westchester Parks Foundation and Westchester County Parks have announced an expanded Bicycle Sundays season for 2021.

The program kicked off on May 2 and continues every Sunday from May through October – except Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, and Columbus Day weekends. This schedule expands the program from 12 events to 22 for the 2021 season.

The program is presented by Westchester County Parks and sponsored by the Westchester Parks Foundation and its partners through generous donations from co-presenting sponsors Con Edison and NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital. Danny Cycles will return as the exclusive bicycle shop.

Michael Fosina, president of NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital, said, "NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital is committed to improving the health of our communities and supporting local programs that enhance the well-being of children and adults. Bicycle Sundays is a great way for the entire family to get some exercise, and we are excited to be collaborating with Westchester Parks Foundation and Westchester County Parks on such an innovative and outstanding program."

To help kick off the expanded series, Westchester Parks Foundation and Westchester County Parks Department will promote Bicycle Safety Month this May with online tutorials and safety tips to help promote a safe ride along the 6.5 miles of the Bronx River Parkway.

The annual event welcomes bicyclists, skaters, joggers, and walkers. Westchester County Executive George Latimer said, "Getting outdoors and active has always been good for physical and mental health – and over the past year, we have experienced this more than ever. In 2020, Bicycle Sundays offered residents a rare outlet as activities were limited, and I am thrilled to continue this annual event in an extended capacity."

Bronco Football Finishes a Perfect Season; Swim Team Back in the Pool

By S. Quinn DeJoy and J. Murrer

Apr. 28, 2021: The varsity football team had one of its best performances in many years. They finished the Fall 2 season with a 6-0 record, scoring 259 points and holding their opponents to just three touchdowns. 

The Broncos had four shutouts this season, including a 54-0 win over Rye Neck on Friday. Scoring in that game were Connor Randall, Will Murray, Kyle Dillon, Riley Ramundo, and Henry Donohue. 

Donohue, who played both quarterback and running back, ran for 13 touchdowns during the season and threw for one. He finished with 943 yards rushing, which according to LoHud, places him No. 2 in all of Section 1. In the first half of the Rye Neck game, he hit 2000 career yards rushing, an impressive mark given his senior season was only six games. 

“We were a pretty run-heavy team this season,” said Donohoe, “and offensive linemen George McCormick, TJ Curran, and Peyton Beldotti paved the way,” 

Also running for the Broncos was senior Connor Randall, who was second in rushing yards after Donohue.

The defense only gave up three touchdowns during the six-game season. Bronxville’s defensive backs and linebackers were a key part of the team’s success. 

“Teams tried to throw passes, but our d-backs, Eric Fleisig and Ben Davis, did well shutting them down,” said Donohue. “Will Murray at middle linebacker had a really good season defensively, and so did Chris Kelty.”

The 22 seniors on the Bronxville team were grateful to have had a season and were certainly happy about how the season worked out. Most of them had played together for many years, and at the end of the Rye Neck game, their emotions got the better of them. 

 “I am not going to play with these guys again,” lamented Donohue. “It is definitely a special group, and I am going to miss playing with them. I don’t think it has really set in yet. We were all pretty emotional after the game.”

Seniors: Jonty Onslow (1), Eric Fleisig (3), Duncan Roesser (6), Willie Swenson (8), Jack Pagano (9), Jack Borsch (10), Johnny Moynihan (11), Ben Davis (16), Calvin Golimbu (17), J.P. Swenson (19), Connor Randall (20), Earl Gretzinger (22), Kyle Dillon (23), Henry Donohue (24), Will Murray (45), George McCormick (55), Peyton Beldotti (66), T.J. Curran (68), Teddy Wardell (70), Mikey Weild (80), and Riley Ramundo (81).

The Fall 2 season also included the girls’ swim team who practiced at the YMCA of New Rochelle three days a week, but due to the pandemic, all of their dual meets, along with their one championship sectional meet, were virtual. 

It was also a very different year in that there was no preseason, and they could not have team dinners or other bonding events. 

“Despite this, I think our upperclassman did a great job of welcoming the middle schoolers and new team members,” said sophomore Julia Bazinet. “Our coach Dom [Galimi] was great this season. He made sure that every swimmer got opportunities to race, pushed everybody to perform their best, and always made sure everyone was having fun.”

The team finished the season with a 2-7 record, and three swimmers qualified for sectionals: Julia Bazinet 200 and 500 free (sophomore), Julia Reich 500 free (junior), Keala Schubert 50 free (sophomore).

“Throughout the season, our team has its ups and downs,” noted Bazinet. “But, overall, I am proud of how our team performed. Hopefully, next year the swim season will be back to normal!”

Seniors: Caroline McGrath (captain), Christina Canty (captain), Olivia Conniff, Selin Ozaltin, Emma Van Ness, Sloane Lewis, and Anna Kate Kochansky. 

Go Broncos.

Opening Week for Spring Lacrosse Includes Some Exciting Games

By S. Quinn DeJoy and J. Murrer

May 5, 2021: The lacrosse players are back out on the field after missing the entire season last year. All ages are out practicing from the youngest of players who can barely hold their sticks to top tier varsity athletes. 

There is non-stop action at Hayes and Chambers Fields, and with the boys’ and girls’ varsity teams ranked in Lohud’s top ten, there is an opportunity to see some really great high school lacrosse games. The Class D Broncos can compete with the best, including the much larger Class A schools.

One of the top match-ups in Section 1 took place yesterday as the Broncos faced Class A Suffern on their home turf. The Bronxville girls’ team, always a top contender in Section 1, received a preseason ranking of No. 3 in Lohud’s Power Rankings, and Suffern was given the No. 1 ranking.

In the game against the Mounties, the Broncos were the first to score with a goal by Captain Alex Doukas, but Suffern fought back and tied the game a minute later.  Back and forth scoring became the theme of the game and at halftime, the score was all tied up at four. 

It was not until eight minutes into the second half that the Broncos took their first two-point lead, 8-6.  Each team scored two more goals for a final score of 10-8.

“Everyone brought their A game,” said Doukas. “We worked hard and it paid off.  Suffern is a tough opponent and they played very well. The game could have gone either way. I’m so happy we finished strong for the win.”

The girls’ team, led by captains Alex Doukas, Katie Formato and Betsy Marshall, opened last week with a wins over Hendrick Hudson and North Rockland (15-7). In the North Rockland game, top scorers included Megan Krestinski (4G/1A)), Molly Krestinski (4G), and Victoria Ruffo (3G/1A). Also scoring for the team were Catherine Berkery (1G), Bridget Finley (1G), Kiki Tormey (1G), Anna Becker (1G), Caroline Ircha (3A), and Alex Doukas (1A).

The Bronco girls’ team is loaded with talent. Doukas, who plays attack for the Broncos, was named to LoHud’s Elite 11, a list of that includes the top players in all of Section 1. Four other Bronxville players were recognized by LoHud as players to watch:  Caroline Ircha (Jr., midfielder), Megan Krestinski (Jr., midfielder), Molly Krestinski (Jr.,midfielders) and Victoria Ruffo (Sr., attack).

The Bronxville girls’ lacrosse team is always a powerhouse in Section 1 and finished as the Class D state runner-up for three straight years (2017-2019).  They have always played a tough schedule and this year is no different with games against the top ranked teams in Section 1, including the game against Suffern yesterday. During the rest of the season, they will face five more teams currently ranked in the top ten: John Jay Cross River, Yorktown, Rye, Mamaroneck, and Somers.

The girls’ will play their second big game this week against No. 2 John Jay Cross River at home on Thursday.

“I’m looking forward to our season after missing last spring due to Covid 19,” said Doukas.  “It really feels great to be back out on the field competing as a team again.”

Boys’ Lacrosse

The boys’ lacrosse team, ranked No. 10 in the Lohud Power Rankings, had an 15-3 win over No. 6 John Jay Cross River in their opening game, but suffered a 15-5 loss to nationally-ranked Shoreham-Wading River on Monday.

In the John Jay Cross River game, the Broncos got off to a strong start and were up 7-0 at the end of the first quarter. Scoring in the game against the Wolves were Chris Patterson (5G, 1A), Tommy Garofalo (4G, 2A), Connor Randall (3G/1A), Henry Sheehan (2G/1A), and Ben Davis (1G). Henry Donohue, who won 15 faceoffs, was named Lohud Player of the Game.

Senior Henry Sheehan, who plays attack for the Broncos, was named to LoHud’s watch list, which recognizes outstanding players in Section 1.

The Bronxville boys improved their record to 2-1 with a 17-5 win against Irvington yesterday. They will face Briarcliff at home on Saturday at 3PM.

Bronxville High School Winter Sports Awards 2021

By S. Quinn DeJoy and J.  Murrer

Apr. 21, 2021: Athletic Council Presidents Kaitlin McBride and Connor Randall hosted the annual winter sports awards introducing the winter athletes and their coaches. It was a live event that was videotaped in the high school auditorium and can be seen on the Bronxville YouTube Channel here. 

Athletic Director Joe Haven congratulated the athletes for their efforts and noted that the awards format was changed this year to be more athlete focused. Each team captain spoke and introduced athletes and commented on their respective seasons. Senior ice hockey player and captain Kyle Dillon spoke about his experience on the team.

“Playing with these guys has been the time of my life,” said Dillon. “Getting to go out and beat Mamaroneck in the Section Final was probably the best way to end it. I love playing with this team, and I am going to miss it.”

The ice hockey team won the Southern Westchester Section 1 Championship in a four-and-a-half-week season with an 11-2 record. Ice hockey is a merged team with Eastchester and Tuckahoe, and the logistics during the pandemic lead to great uncertainty as to whether the season would take place.

“We didn’t know if we would have hockey at all this year,” said Coach Steve Forzaglia. “We are very glad it happened. A lot goes into it with a normal merger, but when you add the Covid part to it, it takes it up another level.”

The pandemic had an impact on all sports, and indoor track had to get very creative. 

“On the first day we found out that The Armory had been converted to a vaccine center so we were scrambling,” said girls’ track coach David Ryan. “Section 1 decided we were going to have outdoor track meets but snow covered the track for five or six weeks and made competing very difficult. People in the community probably saw us training. We were training on streets all over the place and wherever we could find a place that wasn’t icy.”

Skiing had challenges of its own. The home mountain is in New Jersey, but because of the pandemic, the Bronxville team could not cross state lines. All three ski leagues in Section 1 had to train and compete at Thunder Ridge in Brewster. Even eating after ski meets became a challenge during Covid. The team stopped at the Red Rooster in Brewster and ate outside in the middle of the winter, which included indulging in ice cream sundaes. 

While most of teams were able to compete in a regional playoff, it was disappointing that the athletes could not compete at the sectional, state or national level.

“It was a tough season, and we have a very talented team,” said Coach Ryan.  “We have All-League, All-Conference, All-Section and All-State athletes, and they weren’t able to show what they could do. I am very saddened by that but they were great through the season.”
