Varsity Football: Matt Kearns ’24

Varsity Field Hockey: Charlotte Rotenberg ’24

Boys' Varsity Cross Country: Jackson Beatty ’25
Jackson took a risk as he raced across the field for the woods at the 50th Annual Manhattan College Invitational on Saturday, Oct. 8. His fast start and quick final kick earned him a personal best on the 4K course as he finished fourth on the Hackley Boys' Varsity Cross Country team.
Girls' Varsity Cross Country: Caitlin M. ’27 Caitlin demonstrated incredible resilience as she raced at the 50th Annual Manhattan College Invitational on Saturday, Oct. 8.
