 Stepinac Athletics week in review:


It was the beginning of our 2010 spring sports campaign this past week. It Started out with a huge Northeaster storm hit area  & dropped almost 7 inches of rain on Mamaroneck ave. No power & many down trees, made area look at if a hurricane hit it. Our Home baseball dugout roof was thrown off dugout  ,by high winds, all in one piece.  We had just returned back from long ride from Buffalo for the NY State Basketball championship. The Crusader basketball team lost in a hard fought game to Nichols HS at Canisius College. Former Crusader Tom Parotta , Head coach at Canisius, was a great host & really took care of the  Crusaders on our trip up there. The basketball team won its first CHSAA championship since 1993. Nichols has gone on to win the NY State federation Championship.


Our lacrosse team opened week with a 8-3 victory over New Rochelle. In that game Shaun Hanlon had his 2nd 3 goal 1 assist game of season & was named the Westchester County Con Edison Scholar athlete of the week award winner. Congratulations to Shaun, his teammates, Coach Ruben & Spencer & His family. It was also announced that Shaun would be the valedictorian at the Stepinac Graduation this spring. Lacrosse team will play Mount on Tuesday in its first league game.


Last week we dropped the baseball team off at Lagaurdia airport for  there annual trip to Florida. Weather was good & the team has done very well . They will return home Sat & start regular season next week.


Track has been working hard under Coach Nick Mitchell’s direction.  Brandon Mcgeever won the CHSAA championship in the weight throw in  the indoor season & qualified for the states &  the nationals.


Freshman baseball traveled to St Joes by the Sea & lost a hard fought 4-3 game on Staten island. They were winning 3-1 in bottom of 7th.


Tennis has started practice & will start its season in a week.

We will keep you updated on how the crusaders are doing each week.

Enthusiasm Makes the Difference.
