May 12th, 2022 Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter and the Town Board honored the West Islip High School Boys Varsity Soccer Team and the Sachem North Girls Varsity Arrowettes at the May Town Board Meeting.

The West Islip High School Boys Varsity Soccer team had an incredible 2021 season. The team won their first Suffolk County Class AA Championships since 1973 after defeating Huntington during the finals. The boys advanced to the State Championships where they faced off against Hilton, securing a shutout win to secure the program’s first-ever NYS Class AA Championship. Throughout their post season, the team outscored their opponents 25-5, including 10-1 in the State Championship.

During the State Finals, goals were scored by: Aidan Lodie; Brendan McMahon; Jack Dellipizzi; Joey Blackton and Noel Silva, with assists made by: Derek Gildard; Vincent Grieco; Nicholas Castellino and Aidan Lodie. These goals and assists were made possible through the efforts of everyone on the team who utilized a high-pressure defense and dominated 50/50 opportunities. The team effort aided goalie Lucas Iacono who saved all 4 shots on goal, leading to his 7th shut-out game of the season.

Also honored for their athletic achievements were the Sachem North Girls Varsity Arrowettes Dance Team. The team competed at the National Dance Association (NDA) Nationals in Orlando, Florida back in March. At Nationals, the Arrowettes competed in the Small Varsity Categories of Hip Hop, Kick, Pop and Jazz. Ultimately, the girls won the “Small Team Performance Division” National Title, and their 16th National Title for the Arrowettes since 2012.

In 2020, just before the pandemic, the team competed at the NDA Nationals where they won the Grand National Champions title. This prestigious title is achieved when a team’s two highest combined scores rank higher than the scores achieved by other teams in their division.

“We are so honored to celebrate these amazing young men and women for their athleticism and well-deserved accolades,” said Supervisor Angie Carpenter. “These past two years have been difficult for our students. With many sports put on hold for a prolonged period of time, these wins demonstrate the strength and dedication of our youth and the sports they love,” continued Supervisor Carpenter.

Congratulations to both teams on their outstanding accomplishments.
