On Wednesday, October 10th the NYMA Knights Soccer team (3-6 overall, 2-3 HVAL) played host to Woodstock. The game was a great outing as Cadet Jeannot Basima finished with four goals. Basima really made an impact on the game as did the following cadets: Thapelo Shika, Remy Sykes, Bob Weng, and Zamere McKenzie. They each scored goals resulting in an 8-4 NYMA victory. Our young goaltender, Cadet Felix Fan, had a great learning experience and is still acclimating himself to the position. Senior Cadet goalie Bill He took over and put NYMA in a great position to win the match.
Also on Wednesday, the NYMA Cross Country team was in action but this time they had home field advantage as they hosted an HVAL Invitational meet. It was a great competition and the overall field consisted of 100 runners. The schools that were in attendance were Storm King, Faith Christian Academy, Poughkeepsie Day School, Marvelwood, Oakwood Friends, Harvey, EF Academy, Woodhall, and Woodstock. Junior Cadet Matthew Montes stole the show once again coming in 1st place for the third straight meet. Cadet Karif Isaacs finished in 9th place and freshmen Cadet Alex Deluccia finished in 10th. Cadets Xavier Gibbs (20th), Josh Antoine (22th) and Justin Bonsu (30th) all finished in the top 30. The Knights had a nice team showing as well as they came in 2nd place overall out of the ten schools who competed.
