Junior Joe Williams opened his outdoor track season in an exceptional manner.  As the current school record holder in the 55 meter hurdles, Joe began his chase of the school record in the 110 meter hurdles.  On Saturday Joe placed first in the 100 meter hurdles in 15.21 sec (.41 sec off of the school record and only .17 sec off of an automatic qualifying time for the NYS Championships).  Joe was also integral in leading the boy's team to the team championship as well, placing 1st in the long jump and 2nd in the 400 meter hurdles.  Joe is one of many outstanding leaders and student athletes on the boys and girls track teams and we are all looking forward to the coming accomplishments this season!

  Nathan Osborne became the Section III Wrestling Champion at 113lbs last Saturday evening at the SRC Arena on the campus of OCC. Nate was also a champion at both the Cazenovia and Port Byron tournaments.  He accomplished his Sectional Championship title by defeating Tyler Schardt of Bville 13-3, Stephen Pascarella of Liverpool 10-8 and in the finals beat Jacob Cavallo of Bville 6-0. Nate’s semi-final match with Pascarella found him down by a score of 7-0, Nate however was determined to find a way to overcome the deficit. With two five point moves he was able to take the match away from Pascarella to place himself in the finals match. In his finals match he faced an opponent who had beaten him the week before by a score of 5-1. Once again he was determined and cruised to a 6-0 victory to claim the 15th sectional title for CNS since 1993. By doing so he has qualified to represent CNS in the New York State Tournament on Friday February 24th and 25th at the Times Union Center in Albany New York.     Nathan has 44 career wins, of which 28 are pins.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <a href="Photo.aspx?photoId=232312&">&nbsp;Rate &amp; Comment</a>
Senior Steve Cooley has been a standout for CNS Swimming in the 100 free and 50 free this year.  He recently posted first place in both events in a close meet against FM.  His toughness down the stretch in the 100 free helped CNS to pull away from FM in a hard fought meet.  Steve also swam a personal best 52.54 in the 100 free on senior night against Weedsport.   Steve has been a reliable anchor on the Medley Relay and the 200 Free Relay for the past two seasons, both of which look to break school records at sectionals this year.  Steve has been a great leader,  and would be the first to credit his fellow seniors and teammates for his success, and the success of the team this year.

Kaitlyn Lippert is a second year member of the CNS Girls Varsity Soccer team.  Originally a midfielder, she was converted to a defender at the beginning of the season when one of the team’s best defenders suffered a season-ending ACL injury.  Kaitlyn adjusted quickly.  While she may not have the goals and assists people are often attracted to, she has been one of the more dependable and consistent players that coaches and teammates rely on.  &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <a href="Photo.aspx?photoId=223429&">&nbsp;Rate &amp; Comment</a>
Jessica Barry, a 3-year varsity volleyball student-athlete has been an asset to the CNS Northstar's on the court during her senior season.  Jessica was plunged into one of the most demanding positions on the court this year moving from middle/right side to setter.  Jessica has handled the position change with poise while also adapting to a new offensive and defensive system.  Jessica has become a more vocal leader on the court. Jessica plays within herself always hustling, feeding off of her teammate’s energy and enthusiasm to help her team to victory.  She leads the team in assists (138), and blocks (10), while also making a positive contribution with her serving and passing. This week against Liverpool, Jess was a key component to the win with 28 assists, 13 digs, 5 kills, and 2 aces in a 5 set match against the Warriors.  Off the court, Jessica and her team spent Sunday, September  25th volunteering at the 18th annual Buddy Walk. They all served food, painted faces, ran games and enjoyed their time with the children.  Jessica's future plans are not yet set, although she looks forward to playing volleyball at the next level.  We look forward to Jessica continuing to display these positive attributes both on and off the court.
