Eagles baseball enjoyed one of its most competitive seasons in memory under head coach Max Harvell, posting wins over Manchester and Elmwood Park in league play and an exciting late inning comeback win over Hawthorne in the county tournament! Led by seven senior starters and hot hitting junior Danny Bautista, the boys gave some of the league’s best all they could handle. The Community Night win over Manchester at the North Haledon Rec Field gave a large crowd opportunity to show appreciation on Senior Night to Lou Batelli, Christian DeBlock, Mark Foster, Rylan de Waal Malefyt, Jared Post, Anthony Segretto and Noah Troast for their efforts in making EC baseball a team to be proud of.
The track and field team once again boasted some outstanding individual accomplishments, led by sophomore Mathias Cortez, the state group champion in pole vault! Senior Lex Lugo earned first team all county in the 100 m sprint, while junior pole vaulter Grace Kellog and senior middle distance runner Emily Byrnes were both league champions!
The Golf team put together one of the finest seasons in program history under first year coach Seth Stadtlander, posting a 10-4 record and finishing 2nd to a powerhouse Glen Rock team in the conference. The boys were led by Freshman Evan H. with a 48 average (9-hole) and solid performances from Joshua, Hubbard, Chase DeJong, Sam Faber, and Bobby Wu . The future looks bright for the program with all players returning next season!
The season highlight for our young softball team was a no hitter tossed by freshman sensation Liz Lopez in a win over Manchester on a Community Night at North Haledon Rec. Lopez finished with 147 strikeouts for this season earning 2nd team All League honors. Senior first baseman Alex Griffin amassed 92 career hits while playing strong defense along with classmates Mary Dick and Gwen VanGoor, all of whom will be missed next year.
A very young boys lacrosse team showed tremendous improvement throughout the season that concluded with a well played 12-6 win over Weehawken in the season finale at Franklin Lakes. Sophomore Stephen Frank led the team in almost every statistical category and was selected to 2nd Team All-League as a Midfielder and Honorable Mention All-County.
Girls lacrosse also enjoyed a season ending win on senior day at Franklin Lakes with a convincing win over Hoboken led by leading scorers Nicole Foster and Vic Sweetman, with goalie Jessica Liu and defender Analyse Figueroa turning in strong performances as well.
