Boys and girls basketball teams throughout the Syracuse City School
District have already begun the 2012-2013 season. Below is a quick look at the squads from each school with input from coaches on where they hope their teams will be at the end of the season.
Seniors Charise Wilcox, Mary Morgan and Jasmine Davis will lead head coach Jim Marsh’s Corcoran girls this year. The team will again compete in the highly competitive Amsterdam Holiday Classic which features some of the top teams in New York state.
Members of the Corcoran High School hockey team spent a recent Saturday sprucing up the grounds of their school. Many of the students who participated in the cleanup do not attend school at Corcoran but are part of the district-wide hockey team. The students removed several bags of leaves and trash as part of their cleanup efforts.
In addition, Mike Smolnycki donated his landscaping talents and the campus should be dotted with several hundred daffodil blooms next spring at the entrances to the school.
