Apr. 8, 2020: In some sports, Bronxville High School joins forces with other Section 1 schools to form combined teams.
Bronxville and New Rochelle athletes compete together on the Bronxville-New Rochelle ski team, led by Bronxville coaches Jim Agnello and Patrick Clark, and on the New Rochelle-Bronxville swim team, led by New Rochelle coaches, Kip Fierro, Michael Panzarino, and Bianco Grasso.
Six Bronxville-New Rochelle skiers were recently named to the LoHud All-Star list. For the girls’ team, eighth-grader Bailey Gilliam and seventh-graders Annie and Lucy Sevin were recognized on the honorable mention team.
This past season Gilliam and the Sevin sisters were also named All-League, and Gilliam was named the Most Valuable Skier for the second year in a row. These three middle school students train and race on weekends at the Stratton Winter Sports Club.

On the boys’ ski team, New Rochelle senior and team captain Jack Schlamowitz, sophomore Paul Hodulik, and eighth-grader Ray Thompson were named to the honorable mention All-Star list.
Schlamowitz, Hodulik, and Thompson received All-League recognition, and Schlamowitz was named the team’s Most Valuable Skier.
The ski team had a challenging season with the snowless winter and warm temperatures. They trained and raced at CampGaw Ski Area in Mahwah, New Jersey, and competed at Hunter Mountain for the Section 1 Championships.
LoHud also recognized the Bronxville-New Rochelle swim team. Finn Seibold and New Rochelle teammates Jonathan Carsen, Myles Dower, and Matthew Pena were named to the LoHud All-Star second team for the 200 yard freestyle relay. Seibold, a senior and captain of the team, was named All-League this winter.
The 200 yard freestyle relay team placed second at the Section 1 Championships (1:29.42) and 15th among public schools at the New York State Championships (1:29.74).
