By Neel Cheruvu

Boys Golf:

The Williamsville East boys golf team is sending 3 players to the Section VI Championships at River Oaks Golf Club in May. At the ECIC Championships, freshman Kevin Zhao shot 78, tying for 9th. Meanwhile, freshman Dawson Miller shot 80 and tied for 12th and Michael Stellrecht shot 81 and finished 16th. All three of these players were named ECIC Large School North Division all-stars, along with senior Jacob Nostrant. Nostrant shot 86 and missed the sectional cut by a mere stroke. East sent 10 golfers to ECICs, the most of any team. This team has a lot of promise for the future, as 6 out of these 10 are freshman and one a 7th grader.

Girls Field Hockey:

The Williamsville East girls field hockey team blanked Holland 5-0 on October 9th and Eden 2-0 3 days later. Laura Kaplan scored twice against Holland, while Jenna Cavalieri added an insurance goal in the game against Eden. Goalie Grace Burker made 8 saves for the shutout.

Boys Soccer:

The Williamsville East boys soccer team notched a convincing 3-1 road win over Hamburg on Thursday. After this win, East and Hamburg share the ECIC II title with identical 11-1 records. Goals by Jacob Gennaro, Ben Woolingham, and Trey Buscaglia gave East a 3-0 lead. East got off to another hot start the following day against Iroquois, as Buscaglia scored twice and Reid got on the board. They finished off the week with a 2-1 double OT loss to Williamsville North.
