With the Spring athletic season right around the corner, the Winter season for Warwick sports are coming to a close. This past week pole vaulter Kaeli Thompson landed fifth place at Nationals, earning All-American status with a leap of 13’2.25”.
Thompson also earned a New York State Public and a NYS Federation Medal at the NYS indoor track and field championships, clearing 12’9” in the pole vault event. Dane Sorensen earned a Federation Medal for eighth place at championships as well.
As the seasons change, Warwick lacrosse, baseball and outdoor track and field begin training for the season to come. The varsity track team is looking forward to a scrimmage against Vernon, NJ to prepare for the season and defend their division title.
This past weekend, the Warwick Valley H.S. faculty and staff played their traditional Ultamania Basketball game. Remembered at the game was avid Wildcat fan Mary ‘Mai’ Mezzetti, who’s name can now be seen above the entrance of the gym at Warwick Valley High School in Warwick NY. Mary passed away on July 18, 2017 and is remembered by her family and husband, Myles Vincent Mezzetti.
