In anticipation and preparation of the upcoming season, many of the HHS Fall athletes had the opportunity to sharpen their skills and cohesion as a team in unique pre-season events.
The Girls Varsity Soccer Team had a successful bonding trip to Cold Spring, New York. The team conquered Mt. Taurus and The Bull Hill Loop during a cross training session and spent time working together along the Hudson River. In their first two games of this early season, the Girls Varsity Soccer is currently undefeated with wins over Yonkers and Port Chester.
The Harrison High School Varsity Football began their quest for an outstanding season by putting the time in at the gym. As part of their community outreach, the Huskies held a Youth Football Clinic earlier this summer for potential Huskies-to-be. The team went 3-1 at The Stony Brook 7 v 7 event, beating Sachem North, Smithtown East & Christ the King. The team also finished in the top 4 at the Spring Valley Lineman Challenge and were able to meet NY Giant Landon Collins. In the Huskies first game of the season, they topped Hendrick Hudson 47-20!
The Girls Varsity and JV tennis teams took advantage of the US Open Qualifying Tournament (an event that is free and open to the public) to watch the field of 128 men and women attempt to qualify into the main draw of the last Major tennis tournament of the year. The field is comprised of some of the best college and Futures and Champions Tour players as well as Top 200 players who have just missed making the Main Draw on their own merits. The Girls Varsity Tennis team will begin their quest for their fourth consecutive League Championship this week.
The HHS Cheerleading team attended the Pine Forest Cheer Camp where as a team they were awarded the prestigious Traditions Award – awarded to one team at camp that shows outstanding leadership, school pride and spirit.
Two HHS Cheerleaders, seniors Emily and Melanie Jimenez, were the recipients of the “Pin It Forward” award. The recipients of the “Pin It Forward Award” can receive this honor at any point during the camp. Some of the qualities judges highlight are the ability to step up as a leader by being a good example for their peers, work ethic, compassion, passion for the sport, and of course spirit.
Two Harrison High School cheerleaders earned the prestigious UCA All American title. Senior Kayla Moretti and sophomore Alessia Franciosa were among 325,000 cheerleaders in 5,000 Varsity camps across the country to try out for this distinction. Only the top 10% are chosen and have been invited to represent the U.S. and participate in the world famous London New Year’s Day Parade.
Good luck to all of our athletic teams this fall and Go Huskies!!!
