Fall sports at Dominican Academy have been a tremendous success! After COVID-19 restrictions made play difficult or virtually obsolete, we were very excited to give our student-athletes the chance to showcase their athletic talents once again this year.

Our Cross Country team competed in eight meets and championships this season. Coach Paul Tannuzzo, P '22 and Assistant Coach Jennifer Amato, P' 23 dedicated four afternoons a week training our runners. Clearly, their commitment paid off as D.A. placed third overall in the New York/Brooklyn Queens CHSAA Sectional Championship. Freshman Claire S. finished second out of 88 runners, an impressive finish in her very first race for D.A.! Our freshmen went on to place eighth out of 29 schools in the CHSAA Freshmen and Sophomore Intersectional Championship. Congrats to seniors Teresa A., Maya G., Elli R. and Sophia T. on an awesome run in their final lap at D.A.
Under the guidance of Coach Pat Frawley, P '19, Assistant Coach Amy Avery, P' 24 and trainer Lev Rauchman, P '25, our Soccer team had an undefeated season this year. In semi-final play, the team suffered a 2-1 loss against Preston High School in heart-stopping overtime play. Four players were named to the All-League Team for the Brooklyn Queens Diocese: Seniors Teresa A., Blair B., Alessia C., and sophomore Kate C. Teresa, Blair and Alessia have been dedicated team members for all four years.
Our Volleyball team finished the season with a 3-3 record, making it to the semi-finals against tough competitor St. Joseph Hill who went on to win the Championship. With Coach Kieran Kilduff, P '22 and Assistant Coach Antoinette Quatela, P' 21 at the helm, these student-athletes consistently made D.A. proud while facing some fierce competition. Seniors Deirdre D., Alexandra H., Hannah K. and Fiona M. led the team by setting a fine example of character, sportsmanship and ability. Hannah was recently named an All Tier II Player, a true honor for any athlete. This distinction is in part a testament to her unparalleled commitment to the sport having been a valuable part of the team since her freshman year.
We are grateful to all our volunteer parent coaches who generously share their time and talent to make athletics at D.A. a positive and enriching experience. As Swimming continues its season and Basketball and Indoor Track begin, we have much to look forward to in the winter sports season at D.A.
