Coaches vs. Cancer, BIG Success!

Monday, February 26, 2018

This weekend, we hosted our third annual Coaches vs. Cancer fundraiser and community night, led by the Girls Varsity Basketball team. The players promoted the event successfully and reaped the rewards with a hugely successful night raising over $4,000 for the American Cancer Society. 

A particular highlight was having Madison Coddington '17, who initiated the event on our campus three years ago, attend to cheer on the team and support the tradition. Madison returned to campus from Marist College and was joined by fellow alumni Chris Belfi '17 and Eric Citrano '17.

The evening began with the Boys Varsity Basketball win over Covenant Christian Academy (CCA), followed by a silent auction, bake and t-shirt sale, pizza dinner, and culminated with the girls' season-ending game and victory over CCA.

The stands were jammed with students, parents, faculty, staff, and friends and the excitement, on an otherwise dreary February night, was electric. Thanks to everyone who worked so hard to organize this memorable community event.
