Fall Athletes Achieve

The Deer Park educational community came together to celebrate the post-season honors of its fall student-athletes. Teams were recognized with both academic and athletic awards and most notably, eight squads were named New York State Scholar-Athletes. Members of the kickline, varsity cheerleading, boys cross-country, girls swimming and diving, girls varsity tennis, girls varsity volleyball, girls varsity soccer and boys varsity soccer teams received certificates and pins for achieving and maintaining a cumulative grade point average of 90 or better throughout the season.

In addition, the varsity football, girls varsity swimming and diving and Robert Frost Middle School seventh-grade girls soccer teams were presented with the Sportsmanship Award based on the recommendations of officials and opposing teams for their fair play and good sportsmanship on the field of competition.

During their successful season, the boys varsity soccer team claimed the League IV Championship and their coach, Rob Franco, was named League IV Coach of the Year. Both the girls varsity soccer and girls varsity volleyball teams were playoff qualifiers, while the boys junior varsity soccer team finished the season undefeated, with an overall record of 15‐0.
