Today’s news:

Bay Ridge Prep honors

Rachel Fernandes and Alexandra Singer, members of Bay Ridge Preparatory School’s Class of 2010, have been named First Team — All Conference in the Private School Athletic Association’s Varsity Volleyball League. The news was made official at the recent PSAA meeting.

“I’ve been coaching Alexandra and Rachel since they were in the sixth grade,” said volleyball coach Terence Simpson. “They’ve become great players and tremendous leaders on our team. I’m really proud of them and look forward to coaching them again next season in their senior year.”

Tony Campbell, director of Athletics, said he was very happy to see “the hard work and effort put forth by these dedicated athletes pay off.”

Campbell noted that being named to the First Team — All Conference is considered an honor since coaches from volleyball teams in the entire league vote on which students are named All Conference.

“This news reaffirms the growing strength of the athletic program at Bay Ridge Prep,” Campbell added.

Recent victories for the Bay Ridge Prep athletics program include the varsity baseball team finishing their 2008 season as Division II League Champions in the PSAA. Senior members of that team also went on to play in the league’s All Star Game in May 2008.
