At Deer Park's Saints Cyril and Methodius School (SSCM), there was much celebration among Girls' Volleyball teams, as the Gold and Blue Squads enjoyed some end of season cheer.

The Catholic Middle School Athletic Association’s (CMSAA) provides a structure for interscholastic athletic competition among middle schools in the Diocese of Rockville Centre, offering a variety of sports each season, ranging from Baseball, Softball, Basketball and Soccer to Volleyball, Lacrosse, Bowling, and Cross Country Track.

This year’s enthusiastic group of young Volleyball players was headed up by parent volunteers, Tyrone Peterson and Hilary Troy, who led two SSCM teams, the more veteran Gold Squad of mainly 8th graders with a handful of 7th graders and the newly formed Blue Squad, consisting of energetic 6th and 7th graders. The Blue Squad held their own nicely, placing 5th in the Angels Division. Meanwhile, the Gold Squad came crashing out of the gate from the very first matchup, sweeping the first three games against St. Patrick’s and keeping that momentum going throughout the season, for a final ranking of 2nd place in the Diocese.

Saints Cyril and Methodius has participated in CMSAA programs for over six years and this year’s Volleyball Team includes 16 girls from the 6th, 7th and 8th grades, whose practices and meets take them to a diverse range of Long Island locations. At the heart of the CMSAA’s Mission Statement is their role in helping develop well-rounded athletes, so the program’s volunteer coaches seek to promote physical endurance and good sportsmanship, while fostering teamwork and Catholic values in all of their players.
Congratulations to all of SSCM’s Volleyball players and a tremendous thanks to Mr. Peterson and Mrs. Troy for their hard work and dedication.
