Message from the Director of Athletics

Dear Harrison Community,

Winter 2022-23 was another successful season for the Harrison Huskies. Three of our teams earned the title of League Champions: Girls Basketball, Boys Swimming, and Boys Winter Track. After an intense semi-final sectional game and buzzer-beater win, the Girls Basketball Team advanced to the section finals and remained determined until the very end. 

I am incredibly proud of our student athletes who arrive at each game, meet, and match ready to compete at the highest level.  Our Husky athletes understand that preparation is only part of what it takes to succeed; respect for teammates and opponents, coaches and officials is equally important.  They represent our community with tenacity and character every time they put on a Husky uniform. 

Once again this season, our school community showed up to support and cheer for their classmates. The energy and school spirit booming from the stands were amazing and reflected the camaraderie and community that is Harrison. I have shared a picture at the end of this letter that captures their spirit and Husky Pride!

Three of our graduating seniors have committed to universities to continue their sports at the Division 1 level.  LMK Middle School students were introduced to what it means to be a Husky athlete as members of the modified teams. 

Join me in celebrating our student athletes, teams and coaches in the latest Harrison Athletics Newsletter - Winter Sports Wrap Up.


Christopher Galano, Director of Physical Education, Health and Athletics

Boys Bowling

Record: 13-1
Scholar Athlete Team

Posting a 13-1 record, the boys bowling season was a success with the largest team rosters in recent years. The only loss came early in the season against first place Yonkers, a team of mostly seniors. However, Harrison’s boys refined their skills, worked hard and pulled out a win at the next match against Yonkers. The Huskies were the only team to beat Yonkers and held firmly in second place throughout the season. Junior Captain George Roggiero qualified for sectionals as an individual holding an average of 180 or higher.

Girls Bowling

Scholar Athlete Team
Record:  8-6

The Girls Bowling Team was a wonderful group of athletes who progressed throughout the whole season. Veteran players set the bar for determination and hard work; every bowler on the team broke their own individual record by the end of the season.


Boys Basketball

Scholar Athlete Team
Record: 9-12

Boys Basketball finished the season with a 9-12 record. A young team led by two underclass guards, Joe Crupi and Matt McCoy, the boys demonstrated great determination and improvement throughout the season.  This was evident versus a very tough Eastchester team when they found themselves down 22-4 early in the game. With two starters out, the team stepped up beginning with great bench play from Jake Cabral and Ethan Powell, and the Huskies came back to win 58-53.  The Huskies ultimately lost in the playoffs in overtime to a strong Mahopac team.  The future is bright for this young team.
