One more group to go…

This is the second to the last photo spread of Amity High School grads with their diplomas from the Wednesday June 15 Commencement Ceremony in Woodbridge.

I know that one or two students are missing – that is due to a visibility issue in place this year (never a problem in past years).

The Students in this grouping have last names that begin in the area of Sc to Te. I hope you are included.

Almost done

Here is the fifth set of Amity Grad Photos from the June 15 Commencement Ceremony at the High School.

The students pictured here have last names beginning with Pi to Sc.

If you do NOT see yourself (or your son or daughter) in this spread, and he or she should be. it is due to the location in which the professional portrait photographer chose to plant himself which eliminated 99% of the spontaneous photos that I normally would capture and caused the kids to bunch up and/or make a hasty exit after posing with their diplomas.

It Was A Great Day For An Amity Lacrosse Alumni Game

The annual Amity Lacrosse Alumni Game took place at Pease Field in Woodbridge Saturday morning, June 18.

Amity Boys Lacrosse Coach Brandon Pepe said, “Many of the former legends of Amity Lacrosse were able to make the game today.”

The matchup between the “Old Guys” — former Amity players from 2005 – 2015, many wearing jerseys or helmets from their college teams — and current Amity Lacrosse players, lasted about an hour. With no scoreboard and only one father of two alumni players seemed to be keeping score.

“We had beautiful weather and it was a great celebration of how far Amity Lacrosse has come over the years,” Pepe said.

Here are some of the alumni who attended:

Jay Binkowski (’09)

Michael Keyes (’11)

Mike Choiniere (’11)

Jesse Kwolek (’15)

Cole German (’11)

Tyler Vallie (’12)

Jake Milner (’15)

James Chapman (’14)

Luke Sacramone (’12)

Joey Choiniere (’14)

Jay Kelley (’11)

Scott Burgess (’09)

Bill Marrone (’11)

Brandon Pepe (’05)

Tyler Pepe (’08)

How Did They Play?

During the brief warmup, the current players seemed pretty confident, as parents laughed at their “trash talk.” They thought the Old Guys would just “run up and down the field.”

That train of thought seemed to fade when Joey Choiniere (Sacred Heart University) [2014 Amity Lacrosse MVP and Athlete of the Year] passed the ball to his brother Mike (Albertus Magnus) [Capital One Academic All American] who seamlessly slammed it into the net.

The game stayed interesting with Kwolek, German, Vallie [a 2016 Captain of the D1 Marist College lacrosse team], Chapman [UConn] and Milner also displaying their best moves. Seemed like old times.

Amity Goaltender Matt Perrotti (at least we all believe it was Matt) did a good job against the Old Guys and the other Young Guys managed to lock in some points too.

Final score… I don’t know 8-3 give or take. It doesn’t matter.

The best thing is that everyone got to see one another again and they had fun.

It’s a shame that none of the Amity Youth Lacrosse players were there to watch and see how it’s done.

Here are more photos from the Amity Commencement Ceremony.

Because of where the professional portrait photographer decided to set up, I missed some of the kids, as they dashed off quickly as soon as he was finally done. 

You also will not find as many fun and spontaneous photos as in past years. 

I wasn’t the only one complaining, a few parents behind me also were upset that they couldn’t get a decent shot.
