Coach of the Year


Dan Carpenter

The long-time Crusaders coach faced a difficult task
this season, despite leading a veteran squad on the field.
For the first time in decades, Catholic Central played a
non-league schedule, following the break-up of the Big
10 last spring, and took on opponents all over the section
as well as the state. It made for a hard-fought season,
but one that ended with a little history as the Crusaders
returned to Section II postsesaon play and notched the
programs first-ever Section II championship, defeating
Voorheesville in the Class B final on an overtime goal by
Lexi Riffelbach. Although CCHS season ended in the
first round of the NYS Tournament, it was still a historic
run for Carpenter and the Crusaders, many of which will
return to next years squad as well.
