The second annual NYSPHSAA coaches appreciation day will be held on Wednesday, May 15th.

Coaches Appreciation Day was established to recognize all coaches at every level, including Modified, who have coached Fall, Winter or Spring sports within a NYSPHSAA member school. The concept was initiated by the NYSPHSAA Sportsmanship Committee.

We encourage anyone who wants to share a memory, photo or story about a coach who made an impact on their athletic career use the hashtag #NYSPHSAACoachesDay on all social media platforms.

Lyric Coleman placed 2nd in the 100 and 3rd in the 200, while Annika Berlin ran a time of 1:05.4 for 6th place in the 400. Erin Clune took 3rd in her 100 HH race, 6th in high jump, and 4th in shot put. Kendra Rubino and Sophia Schoonmaker ran very well in their 400 hurdle race with times of 1:12.9 and 1:14.5 respectively. Isabelle Serrano and Jen Callan took 5th and 7th in 1500 with times of 5:10.9 and 5:13.3, Jen also took 2nd in the 3000. Many other points were picked up in throws and jumps with Olivia Avello taking 1st place in long jump and Paige Bogart scored 1,923 points in the Pentathlon taking 2nd place.
