Village of Greenwood Lake Mayor Jesse Dwyer congratulated the Greenwood Lake Little League traveling team at the Village Board meeting on Mon., Nov. 13 for winning the Harvest Ball Trophy this year. The Greenwood Lake Juniors Division team is made up of 13 and 14 year old boys.
Head coach John Cernuto said that the boys won the three games needed for the championship in the District 19 tournament. The team was victorious during the final game this fall and defeated Pine Bush at Pine Bush.
“It was a great accomplishment. I was very proud of the kids. They worked very hard. I’ve been coaching in this little league for about 20 years and this is the first time I’ve ever seen a Greenwood Lake little league team win a district championship. We are going to keep this trophy and enjoy it until next year,” said Coach Cernuto.
The team was extremely grateful for all of the help they received from their two fall coaches Jim Cicchetti and Chris Casse. The entire team was called up by the Mayor who presented them with a certificate of recognition on behalf of the Village.
