IRVINGTON, N.Y. -- Irvington High School students were recognized for their achievements, hard work and dedication to their sports during the fall season when they received certificates at the Dec. 22 Board of Education meeting.
The Irvington Union Free School District administration recognized the volleyball team, which was the league champion for the first time since 1996; the girls soccer team, also league champion; and boys cross-country star Luke Carmosino, who is a section champion and placed 12th in the state championship this fall.
“The accomplishments of these two teams and Luke show how hard work from dedicated athletes and coaches can be very fulfilling,” Athletic Director Arthur McCormack said. “They put in many hours to make themselves and their teams better. It is so nice to see this hard work rewarded with these championships.”
Superintendent of Schools Kristopher Harrison commended the students for demonstrating great spirit, effort and sportsmanship during their seasons.
“Individually and collectively, they represented themselves and our community so well,” Harrison said. “It is important to recognize all of our students for their achievements. In Irvington, our students express their talents in so many ways –some in the classroom, some in athletics competitions and others on the stage. We have to find as many opportunities as possible to celebrate their good work and instill pride in our programs.”
This fall, four teams from Irvington High School were among 10 teams across the state to be selected as the top scholar-athlete teams. The boys cross-country, boys soccer, girls field hockey and girls cross-country teams were named State Champion Scholar-Athlete Teams by the New York State Public High School Athletic Association.
