Remembering a Season of Success

Babylon High School's spring athletic season was highlighted by Long Island championship victories by its varsity baseball and softball teams, along with several other teams qualifying for playoffs. Even more impressive was the participating student-athletes' overall dedication to academics.
"The athletes practiced hard every day and left it all out on the field," said Babylon High School Athletic Director Michael DeJoseph, speaking in front of approximately 150 parents, students and school administrators at the school's Spring 2012 Varsity Awards ceremony, held on June 5 at Rowe Hall Auditorium.  "I personally couldn't be more proud, not only of what the athletes accomplished on the field, but what they have achieved academically."
Of the 24 eligible teams this year at Babylon High School, 20 were recognized as "New York State Scholar-Athlete" teams.  "That's something I'm even more proud of than the athletic achievements," DeJoseph added. “Our mission is to celebrate our students’ uniqueness and maximize their abilities to attain excellence as we guide and prepare them to become responsible citizens of the world.  Thanks to the parents and the Babylon Booster Club for their continued support, and to the student-athletes who gave it their all this year."
