Kennedy Volleyball Shining on Court


YONKERS, N.Y.— On Sept. 21, the Kennedy Catholic volleyball team traveled to Sacred Heart in Yonkers for a league game. Recording their third win, the Lady Gaels won their match in three straight sets, 25-11, 25-12, 25-10.  Leading the way for Kennedy Catholic was setter Katie Agro with 15 assists. Also contributing to the win was Kelly Brann with eight kills and Ciarra Ortiz with six kills. Having a great night serving was Eileen Cooney, Meagan Gallagher, and Mia Troetti with seven, six and five aces, respectively. 

“Everyone contributed tonight and we are playing well right now, but of course there is always room for improvement.” Kennedy coach Tony Santora.

The Gaels played in the John Jay-Cross River tourney this past weekend. With outstanding competition and 15 teams involved, they were seeded in pool one. Starting off the day dropping two sets to Newtown, Conn., they came back to split with host John Jay. The Gaels then took two sets from Haldane 25-14, 25-17. Needing to win one of the last two sets with Farmington, Conn., to get in the gold medal round, they did just that 25-17, 25-27.

“The ladies were excited to play some great teams we don’t normally get to play and they did great,” Santora said. “We wanted to get to the gold medal round and they accomplished that. Everyone had a really good tournament.”

The Lady Gaels first opponent in the Gold round was Hendrick Hudson. With a setter change in the last contest, Kennedy did a nice job hanging with the Sailors but came up short 25-17.

“It was a good day of volleyball for everyone and also great experience for my team,” coach Santora pointed out.

Load Up The Wagon!

We didn’t have the luxury of minivans when the boys were small. What we did have was a 1966 Ford Country Squire station wagon: long, sleek, solid and hunter green with imitation “woodie” trim.

Our wagon was certainly big enough to accommodate three growing boys and a baby in a portable crib (anchored down on the back seat) with plenty of room to spare.  This set-up ...

Twelve-score and one year ago

Last week, on the 4th of July, America turned 241 years old. Did you bring a birthday present? What do you get for the country that has everything? It has amber waves of grain, it has purple mountain majesties, it has oceans white with foam. Most of these  assets are highly leveraged to the Chinese at the moment, so you’d better get out and see them now because they’re planning ...

Cell phones: A boon or a bust?

We’ve all had the experience of being “butt-dialed,” a euphemism for your pocket-held cell phone accidentally pressing someone else’s number. My granddaughter, Shanna, has unknowingly called me from parties at 2 a.m. I’ve enjoyed listening in on many of her celebrations and sometimes even joined in the fun when being discovered on her phone.

My most recent cell ...

A (Burnt) Toast to Love and Marriage, on the Rocks

In its first few moments, sitcom-style comedy “Clever Little Lies” grabs audience attention right away, with one of the most revealing wardrobe changes you’ll ever see on stage. It is done modestly but just provocatively enough to elicit vocal appreciation from amused patrons.

The Adventures of Superdog

I was always very impressed that my dog could bark on command and come when I called his name, until I read in the newspaper about a dog that saved his owner’s life by calling 9-1-1. Apparently, when his owner had a seizure, the dog pushed a speed-dial button for 9-1-1, barked into the receiver for help, and then opened the door when the responders arrived.

Honestly, though, it’s ...
