BFS PSAA Championship
Boys Varsity Volleyball PSAA 2014 Champions!

From the Coach: Today all the hard work, determination, and desire for excellence came together in a well played and competitive championship match against a very strong Calhoun team. Everyone played his role to win 3-1(26-24,21-25,25-11,25-20). It was a very rewarding experience for our small, but tight group of student-athletes. We stayed focused and intense in every set. After exchanging sets 1 and 2, we dominated set 3, and controlled the pace and rhythm of the game in the deciding set 4. Thomas, the tournament MVP, played an outstanding match with 24 kills, 11 blocks, and 2 aces. Griffin showed great ball distributing, with 28 assists. Lucas showed great composure on defense and offense, adding 4 kills, 1 ace and 1 block. Quran and Tyler, Philip and Juan, once again, showed great understanding of their roles, playing with great consistency both defensively and offensively. The team peaked at the right time, saving the best for last, winning their first PSAA Championship in only their first year in the league. Blue Prideā€¦

On Wednesday the BFS Boys Varsity Baseball team closed out the spring 2014 season with a 6-0 victory over LREI down at Red Hook. All is Wells and Good for BFS. The team closed out the season with a 6-7 overall record as the Panthers rolled to the shutout win. Adam W. (Jr.) powered the Panthers at the plate and on the rubber, willing the Panthers to the victory. Right at the start of the game, Adam racked up three RBIs on a bases clearing triple in the bottom of the first inning. The Panthers got the win thanks in large part to Adam’s dominant, 10-strikeout performance. The Panthers’ pitcher gave up just two hits over five shutout innings.

Five runs in the opening three innings allowed the Panthers to easily put away their opponent. Along with Adam’s three-run triple in the first inning the team was boosted by a RBI triple by freshman Miles N. in the second inning. Blue Pride!!
