Just a quick update for those who don’t know: Although both votes were extremely close, the school budgets passed in both East Ramapo and Mount Vernon. That means Ramapo, Spring Valley and Mount Vernon High Schools will have varsity sports (although Mount Vernon’s sports were not in the same danger).
It’s obviously great news for Section 1 sports. Here’s the story on Mount Vernon, which saw its budget pass by just 20 votes despite shockingly low voter turnout. The Ramapo vote wasn’t that close despite a similar budget being voted down last month.
OK, thankfully for those districts and all Section 1 fans, we’re now back to sports.
And speaking of which, Ramapo has appointed East Ramapo girls varsity coach Austin Goldberg to replace Dave Sachs as the school’s new boys basketball coach. You can read Mike Zacchio’s story on Goldberg here.
