Webster had a winning weekend

4 Mar

It was a busy, and very successful weekend for Webster sports and academic teams, who were participating in various local and state competitions. Seems like every hour another congratulatory message was coming across my Twitter and Facebook feeds as — one after another — the teams took home top awards.

You might have heard about some of them, or even read about a few in the paper. Here’s what I know about, but please tell me if I’m missing any team. (Although Superintendent Gumina did a pretty good job curating them all, thank you!)

thomas cheer

The Webster Thomas cheerleaders are now state champions, taking first place in the co-ed division of the state-level competition held Saturday at RIT. They are the only Section V school to bring home a title this year. Click here to read the D&C story.

The Thomas Titans track team did pretty well for themselves over the weekend as well at the New York Indoor State Championships held in Staten Island. Monique Hardy easily captured the state girls weight throw title with her toss of 60′ 4″, more than 5 feet farther than the second-place competitor. Sean Smith posted a personal best and school record 67′ 4″ in the boys’ weight throw, taking second place.

The Webster boys’ swim team, competing in Long Island, finished second in the state in the 200 free relay, posting a new Webster record of 1:26.48. The team also took third place in the medley relay, and set a new Webster boys’ record of 3:13.88 in the 400 free relay, good enough for seventh place.

The Thomas Titans hockey team took the NYS Regional championship in hockey. Next up? The state competition.

odyssey of the mind

The Klem South Odyssey of the Mind team — Cooper, Maura, Lily, Ellie, Ella, Kate and Kayleigh — took their very first ever regional title, and are now headed to the states in three weeks. They’ll be joined by the Thomas Titans Odyssey of the Mind — team — Logan, Brynn, Tegan, Ally and Kayla — who also won at regionals.

Webster’s indoor percussion team won top honors at their recent NYSCP competition.

speech and debate

And finally, the Webster Schroeder speech and debate team took second place in their national qualifier competition. Team members Luke and Katie are headed to the National Championships for Duo Interpretation.

Whew. That was a lot to pull together. Let me know if I got everything, and if I got anything wrong!  And congratulations to all of our sports, academic and music teams for a job well done.

P.S. Here’s an additional note which was recently passed on to me: Last Wednesday, the Webster Thomas varsity girls bowling team won their Class A sectionals!
