Beaver Athletics Kicks off Fall Sports
Beaver coaches and athletes are back in action and are excited for an action packed fall season. The Athletic Department and school community are thrilled to welcome new and returning students for our 2012 fall athletic season.
“Each year begins with high expectations for our student-athletes to reach their potential.“ said Director of Athletics Sherry Levin. “2011-12 was an exceptional year for Beaver athletics filled with 8 championships and multiple All-Scholastic players. We look to build on the energy and enthusiasm that surrounds our programs.
2011 was yet another banner year for the varsity boys’ cross country team as they captured both the EIL Championship and the NEPSAC Division IV Title en route to an undefeated season . With several returning runners, the boys are poised for continued success this fall. First year coach, Adam Scipione, will look to push the team and continue the strong tradition. The girls’ cross country team returns some experienced runners coupled with a new coach. Coach Shannon Foley. They expect to compete at a high level amongst the strong EIL teams.
Guided by new head coach, Megan McGuin, the field hockey team will look to take a step forward from last year’s campaign. With the majority of the roster filled with underclassmen, the goal will be to improve with each practice and game.
Head coach Larry McKinney takes the reigns of the golf team for his 9th season which included five EIL championships. With some veteran leadership on the course, the team looks to finish in the top of the EIL.
The boys’ soccer team finished 2011 with a stellar 11-2-3 regular season and earned a NEPSAC Class C tournament bid. Led by third year head coach Steve Schechter, the young talented team carries high hopes for another run at the EIL and NEPSAC titles.
The girls’ soccer team looks to continue its winning ways following a strong season last year as they finished with an 8-5-3 record. With some of the team’s most talented and experienced players returning, the girls will be a handful for all EIL opponents this fall.
The volleyball team qualified for a NEPSAC Class C appearance in 2011 and looks to make a run at a second consecutive bid. Head coach Tiffany Marsh has a young team with enthusiastic players who will look to improve from a season ago in a strong EIL Conference.
