Academy Panthers Hit the Course Running in
Cross Country 2011

 
This fall twenty students from Grades 3 to 8 joined the Academy’s Cross Country Team and participated in four meets, each time coming home with several medals. The meets in October and November were hosted by Our Lady of Sorrows, Holy Trinity, St. Elizabeth’s Bernardsville and Assumption School. At each of these meets Academy runners placed in the top 15 - bringing home an average of 6 medals each time. The boys and girls are scored separately as well as by grade (3rd and 4th, 5th and 6th, 7th and 8th.)
The distances increase for the older grades starting at .75 miles for 3rd and 4th graders to 1.6 miles for 7th and 8th graders.

We are very proud of the Cross Country team for their hard work and dedication. It is not easy to run these longer distances with so many other children jockeying for position as well as the tougher terrain they had to navigate. We look forward to another successful track season next fall! Go Panthers!

 
Academy Panther Volleyball Continues to Grow and Roar
 
Once again a very enthusiastic and large number (41 to be exact) of Academy Middle School students came out for volleyball this past fall. This year was the first year that we joined the GIL League and we also formed an Intramural team both consisting of mixed boys and girls’ varsity and junior varsity players.
The GIL League was made up of eight Catholic elementary schools from the Archdiocese of Newark. There were 16 games scheduled in the short season but the Panthers persevered and made it to the League's Final Four after beating Our Lady of Sorrows 2 games to none at their South Orange gym in the quarter-finals. The Panthers then had to play the number one seeded St. Joe's squad in the semi-finals at the Mount St. Dominic’s gymnasium in Caldwell on Saturday, November 12th. Unfortunately, a nervous start in Game 1 and a better-played Game 2 was not enough to beat St. Joe’s which went on to win the Championship match against Good Shepherd Academy of Irvington. The Academy Panthers finished the season (including playoffs) with a record of 9 wins and 7 losses. Their improvement throughout the season speaks to their spirit and character. The coaches, Mr. Gargiulo and Mrs. Raleigh, once again want to congratulate them on their hard work and dedication.
The Intramural team played against St. Elizabeth’s of Bernardsville, Morristown’s Assumption School and St. Patrick’s of Chatham. Our athletes came a long way from their first game at Assumption. The parents and coaches, Mr. Gargiulo and Mrs. Raleigh, enjoyed watching the team improve tremendously and ended the season with two victories against St. Patrick’s in a very decisive way. We are very proud of their success and look forward to a successful season next year.
In closing, the coaches also want to thank the parents of the Intramural and GIL volleyball teams for their support, their endless driving to games and their attendance at our matches. We look forward to some more great volleyball next year!
