Sports Recap (5/27)

We had a very interesting finish to our Spring Sports Season as the weather in the area took a turn for the worse last week. Due to the destruction of the storm that hit, all of the playoffs were unfortunately affected and shortened. We had to deal with some issues on campus, but in the end, everyone was safe and that’s all that matters.

We finished our spring season with Ultimate Frisbee losing to Marvelwood by the score of 6-15 and finishing in 5th place in the Hudson Valley Athletic League. Baseball finished in 5th place as well and Boys Tennis defeated Faith Christian to finish in 3rd place. We are extremely proud of all of our cadets as they represented NYMA well throughout the season and the entire school year! A special thanks goes out to our spring coaches for all of their time and dedication.

2018 Ring Hop

This past Saturday night was NYMA’s annual Ring Hop. This year it was hosted in the elegant Hudson Room at the West Point Club. All of the juniors, seniors, parents, and staff members in attendance had a great time.

The festivities were led by Dean of Academics, Maria Reeves, and included a presentation of the Colors by NYMA’s Color Guard, introductory remarks by Cadet Robin Zhao, a formal ring ceremony and recognition of upperclassmen led by Cadet Amanda Beller, and a speech by Superintendent Zhang. After the cake was cut everyone had fun on the dance floor thanks to DJ Lukose!

Sports Recap (5/12)

This has been a very exciting week as the Hudson Valley Athletic League Playoffs are scheduled to kick off on Monday. The NYMA Boys Tennis Team beat Poughkeepsie Day School the other day in a close match 5-4. That win clinched the #3 playoff seed which also means home court advantage for Coach Nate Dimme and the boys on Monday against Faith Christian Academy.

The Knights Baseball Team has been awarded the #5 seed which means on Monday they will play #4 Storm King at Mt. Airy Field in Cornwall. They played Storm King yesterday in the last regular season game of the year and lost 8-12. It was a close game and is setting up for a great rematch on Monday as the Knights fight to stay alive and make a playoff run!

Ultimate Frisbee lost a tough game to Marvelwood earlier this week. Yesterday they also came up short against Poughkeepsie Day School. Coach Forrest Gordon and the team have been awarded the #5 seed in the HVAL Playoffs and will either have to travel to Darrow or Marvelwood on Monday.

GO KNIGHTS!!!
