Wildcats and Gryphons Combine to Place Seven Runners in Top Ten

October 22, 2010

Brandyn Dougan proved that he is not only one of the best cross-country runners in the Fairchester Athletic Association but perhaps the best leaner as well. The Rye Country Day senior captain’s extra effort at the finish line, out-leaning the Brunswick Bears’ Andrew Grasso in 16:59, won the individual boys’ race October 13 at Brunswick School.

Autumn and Optimism Go Hand in Hand for Wildcats

September 9, 2010

Rye Country Day School has been home to an astounding run of success in recent years, and it appears the plot of the story won’t be changing any time soon.

Field Hockey

Whoever said death and taxes are the only certainties in life has clearly never watched the Rye Country Day field hockey team. The perennial contenders won their second NYSAIS championship in three years last November by defeating Riverdale 1-0. It was the Wildcats’ fourth straight appearance in the State finals, and head coach Georgette Summers’ squad is already preparing for a fifth visit.

“We will miss the graduating seniors, their spirit and experience, but the energy and focus on the field has not changed,” said Summers. “The girls came back ready to work. Our seniors will continue the legacy of hard work and commitment, and I believe they can fill the void.”


Morning Round-up: Black Hats top Lincoln Hall

October 5, 2009

Rye Neck football picked up their second win in two weeks by going on the road Saturday and defeating Lincoln Hall 13-8. Quarterback Shane O’Shea put the Black Hats on the board in the second quarter when he kept the ball on 4th and goal at the 1 yard line and ran it in. Frank Pisco had a big game for Rye Neck with 72 yards on the ground and a touchdown.


Morning Round-up: “Powerful” showing by RCDS

September 24, 2009

The RCDS girls’ soccer team traveled to Randall’s Island yesterday to play NYC’s Nightingale-Bamforth. By halftime the Wildcats were up 4-0, and at the end of the game the scoreboard read 9-0 in favor of the 2-1 locals.

Delaine Powerful had a strong game — no pun intended — with two goals for Rye Country Day, and Jenna Frank, Bridget Stock, Kris Sabatini, Steph Sabatini, Elizabeth Wulf, Isabel Kurzner, and Carina Sarda each tallied one. Powerful and Frank also had assists, as did Nicki Rosenbach. Kayti Faustini had no saves in the goal for first period; Devon Kraus has one save in the second.

“In a game like this it is hard to keep focused, but we got a chance to get all our players into the game, to try some new set plays, and to see some players in different positions,” said head coach Dick Pike. “So we move on; better matchup on Friday against Greens Farms Academy we hope.”

At Fox Lane, the Rye boys’ soccer team posted a 16-4 shot differential against the Foxes en route to a 2-0 victory. While Rye again controlled the bulk of the possession, the team was unable to find the net until Chris Livingston headed a Tim Lonergan throw-in to a wide-open Luis Del Pezo in front of the goal in the 34th minute. Del Pezo calmly collected the ball, took a controlled touch toward Fox Lane keeper Arden Ivens-Anderson, and cooly finished into the lower right for his team-leading third goal of the season (Buck Reynolds also has three). Five minutes later, Tim Lonergan soared above a scrum in the box to head home a Del Pezo corner and put Rye up 2-0. James Rimmer was not tested during his 40 minutes in goal, but did manage the game very nicely and advance his record to 2-0-2 on the season (.738 Goals Against Average).
