Starting today at Batavia High School, seniors started laying out the base design for their new parking spots in the student parking lot. Pictured above Mikey Lullo and Anand Patel working together preparing a spot.

High School Principal Scott Wilson (who accepted a position in Churchville-Chili starting Sept. 1st) said the students presented this as a fundraiser to our school board for seniors who were interested to be a part of something that is going around the country.

Thirty-six students have chosen to paint their spot, which costs $20, and they get preferred parking that is closer to the building. For seniors who chose the no-paint option B, they would pay $5 but be next in choice of the parking lot and the remaining spots would be no charge for seniors or juniors.

Donating paint was local business Mosman Wallpaper & Paint. The project will continue through the weekend into next week.

posted by Mike Pettinella in news, Genesee Symphony Orchestra, Batavia High School.

A $20,000 bequest from the estate of a longtime Batavia physical education teacher is nothing short of a godsend, according to a spokeswoman for the Genesee Symphony Orchestra, a not-for-profit organization in perpetual motion to keep the music alive.

“The directors of the symphony are constantly conducting fundraisers and asking for donations, so when we get money given to us like this, we’re just unbelievably happy,” said Roxie Choate, GSO personnel director.

The GSO was one of 11 different nonprofit entities to receive $20,000 gifts from the estate of Joan Pfeifer, a gym teacher in the Batavia City School District for 36 years prior to her retirement in 1984.

Pfeifer passed away on March 11 of this year at the age of 88.

Choate said she remembered seeing Pfeifer, a lifelong Batavian, at GSO concerts.

“I saw her at the concerts, and my husband played tennis with her at times,” said Choate, adding that Pfeifer (known as Miss Pfeifer to all of her students) was her elementary gym teacher.

Pfeifer, a 1945 Batavia High School graduate, went on to obtain her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from SUNY Brockport and University of Buffalo, respectively.

She was active in the community as a volunteer at United Memorial Medical Center and Meals on Wheels, and also was treasurer of the NYS Softball Officials organization, and had leadership roles in the Genesee Tennis Club and Midtown Tennis Club of Rochester.

She was a member of St. James Episcopal Church.

Choate said the funds from the Pfeifer estate will be go a long way to meeting the GSO’s budgetary requirements.

“We’re going to put part of it into an endowment fund, and we also need a new computer and a program to be able to keep track of payments to the performers, and eventually we will have to buy a new set of tympani,” she said.

David Metzler, Pfeifer’s executor, and partner in the Batavia law firm of Rybak, Metzler and Grasso, said the other beneficiaries were St. James Episcopal Church, Batavia Cemetery Association, Elmwood Cemetery, Genesee Area YMCA, Crossroads House, Genesee Cancer Assistance, HomeCare & Hospice, Humane Society at Lollipop Farms, Volunteers for Animals and Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra.

“These charities were near and dear to her heart,” said Metzler, who noted that he knew Pfeifer for about 10 years. “She was always giving money (to various causes). Yes, she was a very generous person.”

It was a cool misty night at Van Detta Stadium where the Batavia Blue Devils hosted the visiting Wilson Wildcats for their homecoming game. First half was a bit quiet where both teams' offense could not put points on the board until there was only 1:51 left in the second quarter. J’Zon Richardson (pictured above) picked up a fumble and 75-yard-run touchdown to give Batavia the lead 6-0 after two quarters of play; two-wopoint conversion was no good.

Late in the third quarter Ray Leach recovered a fumble with one minute left on the clock and ran 70 yards for a touchdown to increase Batavia’s lead to 12-0. No extra points were scored afterward.

In the fourth quarter Cody Dioguardi ran in a 15-yard dash from Jerry Reinhart to increase the lead and secure the win for Batavia, leading 18-0. Extra point was no good.

Wilson put some points back on the board with 51 seconds left in the game. Quarterback James Totten did a lateral pass to Ricky Gamble, who threw a 53-yard touchdown pass to Jervon Johnson. Two-point conversion was good, but time ran out for the Wildcats and Batavia picked up their fifth-straight win.

Ray Leach carried the ball 18 times for 110 yards. Anthony Ray had 11 tackles, four for a loss of yards and one sack on the night.

The Spirit Stick was won by the Senior Class and Quentin Branciforte was named King and Alyssa Juliano was named Queen.

Press Release submitted by Batavia Outdoor track Coach Nicholas Burk.

Three Batavia track and field athletes will be competing in the 2016 NYSPHSAA Track & Field Championships, today and tomorrow, June 10-11, at Cicero-North Syracuse High School.

Anthony Ray (pictured far left) has had a very dominant spring in the throwing events for the Blue Devils as he was undefeated in the Shot Put and Discus during our Monroe County League schedule, earned 1st Team All Monroe County, and also won Shot and Disc at the Section V Championships.

Batavia has had a boy or girl thrower compete at the State meet, both indoors and outdoors every year under throws Coach Dan Geiger. The Blue Devil's track team is recognized as having a very strong Throws Program over the past decade. Anthony was fortunate to qualify for the Indoor State Championships in the Shot Put and Indoor Nationals in the Weight Throw this past winter and will compete in the Shot and Disc today. He goes into the meet seeded ninth in Shot and 11th in Disc.

Kiaya Franklin will be on the track for her two events as she qualified in the 200m and the 400m. Both of these events will be held today, with the chance to qualify for the finals on Saturday. Kiaya is also coming off a State meet performance for Indoor Track this past winter. Earlier this outdoor season, she captured Section V championships in the 100m, 200m, and 400m. She goes into the State meet this weekend seeded sixth in both her events with a very good chance to medal in both.

Adonis Davis (pictured far right) will compete for the first time at the State Championships for track and field and is seeded third in the Triple Jump. He is coming off a very impressive season having earned 1st team Monroe County in Triple and High Jump and won Sectionals in both events as well. Adonis is considering competing in track and field at Brockport State next year.

All three Batavia athletes helped the track team win Sectional Championships two weeks ago and now have the opportunity for some individual success at States. Good luck to our Blue Devil athletes this weekend in Syracuse.
