Morning Round-up: Rye Country Day now 3-0

With a resounding 5-0 win on the road at Greens Farms, Rye Country Day’s field hockey team improved to 3-0. The tenacious Wildcats jumped on their opponents early, and were led by senior captain Isabel Beshar’s two goals. Fellow senior captain Hannah Lowentheil chipped in a goal, as did Jess Hanway and Nealy Nimocks. Amanda Shulman dished three assists, and Allie Farber and Nimocks each had one. In 45 minutes of action, goaltender Kate Moelis made three saves. Backup Sammy Coughlin did not have to make any in clean-up duty.

Since beginning the playoffs in 2008, Lia Bellizzi and the Rye girls’ soccer team have morphed into a force of nature. Following a 1-0 victory over Byram Hills in Armonk, the Garnets are now unbeaten in their last 13 games dating back to last season, and hold a sterling 7-0-1 record so far in 2009. Bellizzi, a junior, delivered the game-winner 10 minutes into the second half against Byram, and fellow junior Tatiana Saunders made seven saves in goal for the shut out. Over the course of their 13-game unbeaten streak, Rye has outscored opponents an astounding 30-3. Up next are a pair of border battles with Port Chester (on the road tonight) and Harrison (at home Saturday under the lights).

In the pool at SUNY Purchase, the Rye girls’ swimming and diving team remained undefeated with a thorough 100-72 win over Byram Hills. I attended this meet and, to put it simply, was wowed by the performance of the Garnets up and down the roster. Check back here later — and in the hard copy of The Rye Record Friday, Oct. 9 — for a full feature story on this team.

Rye’s volleyball team moved to three games over .500 with a hard-fought, 3-0 (25-22, 25-10, 29-27) sweep of Somers on the road. Rebecca Choron had seven kills and Sammie Lee had 19 assists.

Also in volleyball, Rye Neck erased host Keio Academy’s 2-0 lead to come back and win an exhilirating 3-2 (20-25, 15-25, 30-28, 25-22, 25-20) contest. Dominique Falcone and Jackie Galeano led the way with a respective six aces and 14 assists.

The Rye Neck boys’ soccer team dropped a heartbreaker on the road at John Jay-Cross River Thursday, falling 1-0 after allowing a goal with under five minutes remaining. Nevetheless, goalkeeper Dalton Mendez had a superb day in goal for the Panthers. He made 11 saves to keep his team in it.

Rye Country Day’s girls’ tennis team improved to 3-0 with a 6-0 sweep of visiting Portledge. In other tennis play, Rye Neck kept its strong season going with a 6-1 win at home over Somers. The Panthers were powered by their singles players, who swept the Tuskers away without dropping a set.
