January 28, 2015

Mayfield Central School District’s Suicide Prevention Task Force recently sponsored No Name-Calling Week activities at Mayfield High School, designed to focus attention on the problem of name-calling in schools and to help students and educators open a dialogue about ways to eliminate name-calling. Activities and events included Pride Day, Put a Cap on Name-Calling Day, Give Name-Calling the Slip Day, and a week-long poster contest, which was won by seventh grade student, Marriana Mattice. No Name-Calling Week culminated in Trash the Trash Talk, an event at which students wrote on slips of paper some of the hurtful names they’ve been called. The paper slips were then symbolically burned.

Boys Varsity SoccerCongratulations to the 2014 Varsity Boys Soccer Team

November 17, 2014

The 2014 varsity boys soccer team clinched the Western Athletic Conference North title, the program's first since 2003. After a slow start, winning only once in their first four games, the boys finished the regular season with a twelve game unbeaten run that included 11 wins and a tie. Their final record in the regular season was 12 wins, 3 losses and a tie.

Along the way were many dramatic wins. There were overtime wins against Fort Plain and Galway at home. A gutty performance to earn a draw against Northville in spite of playing a man down. A goal with three seconds left secured a win against Saratoga Catholic. In the regular season finale, the boys scored three goals in the final 18 minutes to turn a 2-0 deficit into a 3-2 win.

"The team worked hard in every practice and game and got major contributions from all 17 players on the roster. The WAC North was a very tight race, and 12 of their regular season games were settled by one goal. Even with this pressure, the team was able to secure the results needed to clinch the title," said coach, Jon Caraco.

For many, the most memorable part of the season will be the senior night game. This game was played to raise awareness and as a fundraiser for the Alzheimer's Association in honor of Kevin Rovito.
