The 2014 season was possibly the very best fall season for sports in D-E’s entire 126-year history. It’s a great time to be a Bulldog! For current schedules of all D-E athletics teams’ games, visit www.d-e.org/athletics.

This season saw many individual accomplishments worth noting: Field hockey player Isabel Guerriero ’15 set a D-E single game scoring record with five goals versus Hackensack on September 14. Soccer player Taylor Krakower ’16 led all of New Jersey with 67 goals this season, while teammate Isabella Patino ’18 led the state in assists with 27. Aleem James ’15 made a spectacular 89-yard touchdown run against Newark Academy. Tara Satnick ’16 qualified for the State Meet of Champions in girls cross country.
Team efforts were also noteworthy. We had team championships in boys cross country and girls tennis, with the girls also winning a share of the County Championship. Our volleyball team won more games this season than any other season in D-E history. Meanwhile, the football team won the Hudson Bowl, rallying from 12 points down at halftime to win and finish the season with a 5-2 record—the first winning season at the varsity level in a decade.
There were other dramatic wins this year, including the girls soccer team’s overtime victory over defending league champions New Milford, and the boys soccer team’s quarter-finals state game, in which they rallied from behind to knock off Roselle Catholic 4-3. The highlight was Captain Tyler Perin ’15 knocking in the game-winning goal with one minute to play! Boys cross country repeated as undefeated league champions and qualified for the Bergen Meet of Champions for the first time in school history.
All in all, it was a tremendous season across the board for Bulldog athletics!

Complementing the great weather of the fall season were the 134 middle school students (57% of the student body!)
participating on our seven athletic teams. The resurgence of interest in girls soccer and volleyball continues to be
impressive. Over the course of the season, it was a pleasure to see our athletes really come together as a team, both on and off the courts and fields of play. Not all teams dominated their opponents, but it was obvious that our children were having fun playing and working together. Their hard work was reflected in our performances. Whether it was a member of the cross country team who ran a personal best time, or the field hockey player who scored a first-ever goal, each and every participant improved in terms of skill level and understanding of the game.
