Champion Hawks: Girls and Boys Basketball Earn NYCAL Honors

St. Hilda’s & St. Hugh’s Basketball Hawks captured the NYCAL regular season championships for 2019-2020. The victory continues the Hawks’ winning tradition, which emphasizes sportsmanship and teamwork as much as it does excellence. 
 
“We are fortunate to have Coaches Sean Parker (boys) and Virgil Smiley (girls) leading the way and developing our student-athletes,” said Patti Lesser, Director of P.E. and Athletics. “They bring experience and expertise,” she said, “but also loads of patience and humor.”
 
Ms. Lesser pointed to Mr. Parker and Mr. Smiley’s collective accomplishments—they have led Hawks teams to more than 30 championships in their many years of coaching. “They are driven to bring out the best in our athletes.”
