The calendar may say March, but the fall sports season is in full swing in the Amityville Union Free School District. The return of high school sports following the shutdown during the COVID-19 pandemic began with winter sports in January, followed by a condensed fall season, and ending with spring sports.

At Amityville Memorial High School, the cheerleading, cross country, football, boys and girls soccer, girls tennis and girls volleyball teams are back in action. The athletes are following all safety protocols as they look to make the most of the experience.

Senior Genesis Perez is excited to be back on the soccer field donning her red Warriors jersey.

“Although it is a short season, it is great to be able to have our last season during our senior year,” she said.

Cristian Escobar, a senior on the boys soccer team, said it is good to again feel the energy and enthusiasm that comes with competition. He plans to enjoy every minute of the soccer season, even if it is a little different than years past.

“Representing Amityville feels good,” Cristian said.
