After being knocked out of the first round of the playoffs last year, St. Dominic kicked off its season in style, with freshman Joe Migliano shooting over 600 in his first varsity match. His 621 (he had a 213 in Game 1) was second only to stalwart Nick Bonomo's 623. Bonomo, a senior, shot a 217 in Game 3, while sophomore Vinny...Read more »

"They know how special it is to be on this team," Friars coach Dan McBride said. "Not everyone gets a chance to wear the black and gold."
Bischoff, Danin, Fitzpatrick and Santore are wearing those colors...Read more »
The newly appointed captains of the St. Anthony's boys soccer team, seniors Justin Carfora and Nick Cestaro, have had no trouble motivating the bunch for the upcoming season.

St. John the Baptist’s recent reputation as that “pretty good, but not on that level” team – it’s history. And they put an end to that on Tuesday by making history.
