As the spring athletic season begins, Warwick teams are laying the groundwork early on for successful seasons. Still working against the athletes is this unpredictable weather, as one day it seems to be turning around and the next it feels like mid-January once more! Nevertheless, the challenges of the bitter cold and windy fields only fuel the fire for these teams to prove that they are here to win.
Junior Jack Leahy pitched a winning game this past week, securing a second win for the varsity baseball team. In the season opener on Tues., Apr. 3, Warwick was able to win against Chester. Their second win against Newburgh Free Academy took place on Thurs., Apr. 5 with a final score of 11-2.
Senior Dane Sorensen and fellow outdoor track and field teammates impressed during a dual meet against Valley Central held on Wed., Apr. 4. Sorensen reportedly has committed to attend SUNY Cortland this fall and has been deemed one of the top pole vaulters in the state of New York.
Both the girls and boys varsity lacrosse teams beat out their competition. The Lady Wildcats faced off against Pine Bush on Thurs., Apr. 5 with Taina Gamory leading with an overall outcome of 17-7. Leading against Highland on the scoreboard on Wed., Apr. 4 was Eric Ormsby with four goals and two assists. Warwick had the upper edge by three points, with a final score of 12-9.
