NYSD Cheerleading Squad
The 2014 NYSD Cheer Squad had a bigger team this winter, making it a even more exciting season. The squad had eleven members, including a mascot, a drummer, and a spotter.
On February 22nd, the NYSD Cheer Squad had a competition in Maryland and competed against five other squads placing 4th overall. Our squad members should be applauded for their diligence and commitment. Silmara C. and Yzumaris R. received an All Tournament Team Award in Cheerleading category. They absolutely deserve a pat on the back.

The coaches were very proud of team manager, Sonia L. Sonia worked hard to support the team and put a lot of care into her role.

Boys’ Basketball Season Overview
What a season! Boys’ basketball head coach, John Diehl is really proud of the boys for working so hard throughout the winter season. Finishing with a record of 13-7, each and every game was really close match, never more than a 30-point difference. Also the team suffered injuries this season and played hard despite that.
Our young players on the bench gained a great deal of experience this season; they were eager to learn the game and become a team. As captains, Wigner D. and Dennis W. worked together, shared their expertise with the players and positively led the team.
John Diehl, recognizes seniors, Dennis and Jake for their hard work and effort throughout their Fanwood basketball careers. They will be greatly missed next year and we wish them the best of luck in the future!
