Winter Sports Wrap Up

This winter, many of Wayne Valley’s sports teams finished their season with success. The girls basketball team won their first county championship since 1977. The Indians, who were seeded second, beat the first seeded Lakeland in regulation. The team then made a run in the state tournament but fell short. On the other hand, the boys basketball team had an upsetting lost against Kennedy in the semifinals of the county championship. However, the girls ski team had tremendous success on the slopes this season. Led by captain Morgan LaSala, the girls won the state championship race, taking home the overall NJISRA State Championship trophy. The girls fencing team did not disappoint either winning the Passaic County Championship, yet again for the fourth year in a row. Unfortunately, the boys fencing team did not have as successful of a season but hope to improve for next year. The girls bowling team defended their county title for the fifth year in a row.

The Wayne Knights had immediate success on the ice ever since combining teams with Wayne Hills. In addition to their phenomenal record, the Knights took down Lakeland 3-1 in the Passaic County Championship and made a great run in the state tournament. The wrestling team dominated their competition and this season is no different. This is the second time in a row that the team has defended their District 8 crown. The team also sent juniors Nick Trani and Reid Colella to the NJSIAA championships at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City. As these winter sports come to an end, spring sports are just beginning.
