Athletics Update

I am pleased to report that, undoubtedly for the first time in school history, all of our fall sports teams have been invited into county and state tournament play and those that play as part of the New Jersey state association are also ranked in the top 25 according to the Bergen Record. Highlights include a county championship for the girls tennis team. Volleyball, girls and boys soccer, field hockey and cross country all are getting set to compete in important games and matches. The football team will play in the Hudson Valley League consolation bowl game.

To honor our teams, this morning we held a surprise pep rally to show our support and enthusiasm for DE athletics. I hope that you are able to view some of the upcoming games this week. You can find the schedule by going to www.d-e.org/athletics or click here.

Boys Basketball to play in state sectional final game tonight

Capping off a great season, the boys varsity basketball team will play tonight in the Rutgers Arena for the title of northern New Jersey champion, and the right to play for the state title. We will be playing against St. Anthony’s or Jersey City, who are nationally ranked in the top 10 for high school basketball. Whatever the outcome, to play in front of hundreds of fans in a large arena will be a great experience for our team, and for the many fans who are traveling to the game in New Brunswick. At this point, we will be sending two buses and almost 100 fans, dressed in this best DE Blue.
