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.

Why Do Kids Hate Math?

Dear Dr. Linda,

I am in second grade and have a problem about math. My teacher just keeps giving me homework and it’s driving me crazy. Because she keeps giving it to me on weekends and spring and summer breaks. And it’s only one level and it’s too hard. But the other people who have special needs get to be moved into a higher or lower group and they learn even more because ...

‘Sister Act’: A Musical Like Nun Other

Of all the Broadway musicals I’ve seen over the years at Westchester Broadway Theatre, only a handful have elicited the noisily enthusiastic audience response I observed at the recent opening night of “Sister Act.”

There were outbursts of applause in the middle of some numbers, and several clever turns of phrase sprinkled in the dialogue landed squarely, to the delight of big ...

Cleaning the Empty Nest

Part of the shock of being a part-time empty nester is when the kids come back to visit and I have to watch my house transform overnight from a pristine haven of OCD goodness to a place that looks like an explosion happened at Forever 21.

After my kids moved mostly out, I put away whatever tchotchkes they chose to leave behind and then I put on a hazmat suit and cleaned their rooms until they ...
