Please support the Briarcliff Athletic Booster Club! We are here to support our student athletes by hosting tournaments, providing varsity letters and pins, sponsoring trips, providing need based scholarships, supporting senior day with flowers for parents, running concession stands, sponsoring speakers, and so much more. Our goal is to help our student athletes and parents have a great athletic experience and we need your help to do that!
Briarcliff High School has a long tradition of athletic excellence. Over 300 students participate in sports each season. We average about 10 students each year who go on to play in college and we have won many league, section and state titles across many different sports. Sports are a great way to teach our children about winning, losing, teamwork, leadership, and so many more life lessons. So we would like to ask each family who thinks they have a child who will be playing sports this year to donate to the Booster club through this Go Fund Me page. Any amount is appreciated! Thank you in advance for your support and GO BEARS!
Briarcliff Senior Sophie Jelinek won the Conference II and III Girls Holiday Bowling Tournament at Bowlerland Lanes. She had a two game combined score of 456. In addition, Briarcliff Senior Anna Albert took the third place prize with a two game combined score of 392. Congratulations to both seniors girls on their outstanding accomplishment! Go Bears!
One day after she made her 500th Assist, Kasey Hamlin hauls in her 500th rebound! Briarcliff’s team effort leads to 64-37 victory over visiting Blind Brook.
In a ceremony surrounded by family, friends, administration, teachers, staff, Board of Education Members, her coach and entire team, BHS senior Maddie Plank signed a binding letter of commitment to Princeton University on #nationalsigningday.
As BHS Counselor Nathan Heltzel said, this "cements her position with the Princeton University
Women’s Basketball program in the Fall of 2019."
An important provision of the binding letter of commitment is a recruiting prohibition applied after a prospective student-athlete signs. This prohibition requires other colleges cease recruitment of a prospective student-athlete once an agreement is signed with another college or university, accordingly a long journey toward success is finalized.
The New York State Public High School Athletic Association, Inc. (NYSPHSAA) announced its 2017-18 Scholar-Athlete School of Distinction and School of Excellence Award winners BHS was among 111 schools statewide - and one of only nine in Section 1 - to earn the School of Excellence Award.
