Babylon’s Long Island championship-winning football and girls volleyball teams were both honored at the December 17th Board of Education meeting at Babylon High School.
Both teams excelled during their 2012 campaigns with volleyball winning the Long Island Championship on November 13th and the Panthers football team won the Division IV Championship at Stony Brook University earlier this month.
Superintendent of Schools Richard Rozakis also had kind words for the students.
“Its with great admiration and appreciation that we honor the achievements of our Long Island champion volleyball team and our undefeated varsity football team," he said.
Also recognized was Kerry Glenday, the recipient of the New York State Association of Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance Suffolk Zone award.
“We had a tremendous fall season in all areas,” said Babylon Board President Dominic Bencivenga. “The school board is extremely proud of these students, as the achievements this year were very significant.”
