Three More to Go in the Drive for Five!

 

It’s an exciting time for fall athletics at Storm King. Following two HVAL championship titles won by the boys and girls cross country teams on Wednesday, October 31, the Cougars only need three more league trophies to complete the Drive for Five. Now the ball is in the court and field of the boys and girls soccer teams and the girls volleyball team.

Continuing their 33-game league winning streak, the boys varsity soccer team has clinched the top seed in the HVAL Championship Tournament with their 6-1 victory over Poughkeepsie Day School on Wednesday, October 31. They will host the league semi-final match next Tuesday, November 6, against an opponent that has yet to be determined in the quarter-finals. With a win in the upcoming semi-final, Storm King will host the conference championship match on Friday, November 9.
