Play the video above to relive the excitement of the baseball championship win through the eyes of one of our varsity baseball boys who recorded the semifinals and finals victories against Columbia Prep and Loyola on his GoPro.
This spring our teams all finished strong, even bringing home one championship, thanks to the varsity baseball team! Varsity tennis players placed second at the championship tournament behind first-place Columbia Prep by one point. Varsity track members continued their success by qualifying many boys for the championships and NYSAIS track meet.
An incredible accomplishment is that Browning’s varsity baseball, tennis and golf teams were all awarded Team Sportsmanship awards by New York City Athletic League (NYCAL). An even greater feat than winning team sportsmanship in all the spring sports is that we won team sportsmanship in all 2015-16 sports (Boys Soccer, Boys Basketball, Baseball, Tennis and Golf). While the league does not do All League for Cross Country or Track, Athletics Director Andrew West ‘92 is sure that we would have won those too!
Several boys were also selected as NYCAL All League Players in their respective sports. The coaches from all the varsity teams rank the players in the league, and the top 11 make the all league team. Coaches are not permitted to vote for their own players: Alejandro Oyarzun (Golf), Del Schunk and George Allen (Tennis), Liam Kerwin and Will Jacob (Baseball). Oyarzun and Schunk also received the highest ranking of all the players in their league, making them NYCAL MVP's -- the highest honor a player in the league can get!
