Friday, June 16, was Xaverian Night at the New York Cosmos home game against Puerto Rico FC at MCU Park.
The evening started with a welcome from the Xaverian jazz combo. Several alumni players joined the young musicians to welcome all attendees at the park. They added a bit of Clipper flare to some jazz standards. The Xaverian flavor continued with a beautiful performance of the national anthem before the game began.
The highlight of the evening came during halftime, when Xaverian’s JV girls’ soccer team was honored for winning the CHSAA city championship, the first girls’ title in school history.
The team posted an undefeated season, recording seven shutouts while outscoring their opponents by a total of 50 goals. This historic team will next be seen competing on the Tier 1 Varsity Level against the top schools in the city.
Bishop Kearney High School recently honored its student athletes at a gathering of over 200 parents, coaches and members of the Bishop Kearney community at Buckley’s.
At the dinner, awards were presented to outstanding athletes. Forty-one athletes received the Student Athlete Award for maintaining an average of 90 percent or above while participating in sports.
Special awards were presented to the top athletes of the year. They included the Edward Madden Memorial Award for Athlete of the Year, which was given to Emily Bosiacki; the Sister Virginia Lake Award for Religious Beliefs, Humanitarianism, and Sportsmanship, which was given to Valentina Acevedo; and the Theresa Whitty Award – Kearney #1 Fan Award, which was given to Anne Baghdadi.
Bishop Kearney Athletic Director Jessica Parker, student athletic chairperson Nicole Pazarecki, and other members of the Kearney community helped to make this event a success.
