Winter 2016-17 Athletics Highlights!

On Tuesday, we held our Winter Athletics Awards evening, during which our winter teams and athletes were celebrated and recognized. A highlight of the evening was the Sports Highlights Tape, created by our Video Club (under the direction of Mr. Patrick Hurley).

 

Mr. Fitzpatrick, our Director of PE, Athletics and Medical Services, provided the following overview of our Winter athletics season.

At the time of this release, The Wheatley School is proud to announce that 24 student- athletes have been recognized by Section VIII-Nassau County Interscholastic Athletic Association for their exceptional performance in athletics, scholarship, and leadership qualities for the Winter season.
