The fall CHSAA season came to a close with championships in several sports.
The CHSAA hosted its 32nd annual Hall of Fame dinner at the Inwood Country Club. Five deserving honorees were recognized for their lifetime of service to the local high school sports community.
Mike Boynton, a graduate of Bishop Loughlin H.S., Fort Greene, was recently named the 20th head coach in program history for the Oklahoma State University (OSU), Stillwater, Okla., men’s basketball team.
The Old-Timers hosted its 58th annual Hall of Fame induction ceremony and dinner May 5 at Sirico’s Caterers in Dyker Heights. Five new members – of which four were products of the local CHSAA – were enshrined for their basketball accomplishments as they joined the list of over 200 deserving inductees.
Jack Alesi, the former varsity boys’ basketball coach at Xaverian H.S., Bay Ridge, was inducted April 1 into the school’s athletic hall of fame.
The St. Francis College men’s soccer team and local high school soccer and volleyball teams were crowned division champions this fall.
For the past few years, the seeds of a budding high school athletics program were planted and cultivated in East Flatbush at Cristo Rey Brooklyn H.S.
After 21 seasons, Xaverian H.S. head varsity basketball coach Jack Alesi announced his retirement. His career includes plenty of accolades, but the relationships are what he will most remember.
It’s tough to watch an opponent celebrate a championship. Such was the case for the Xaverian varsity hoops team last year. This year, the Clippers set out to win the CHSAA ‘AA’ city championship — and that’s exactly what they did.
The following high school varsity soccer players have been named to the CHSAA’s All-League teams.
