Dulaney High students show their excellence [Cockeysville]

The football, cheerleading and marching band programs at Dulaney High School are being recognized as being among the best locally and nationally.

A trio of cheerleaders from Dulaney — Alyssa Brown, Sara Comaromi and Hope Eckhart — headed to New York City in November to perform in the 91st Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The Lion cheerleaders joined about 650 high school cheerleaders from across the country to march and perform with the Spirit of America, a cheer performance group that recognizes all-star cheerleaders nationwide. Congratulations to Alyssa, Sara and Hope!

Next up, the Dulaney Marching Lions recently participated in the 45th Annual Mayor’s Christmas Parade in Baltimore City. A longstanding favorite at the parade, the Marching Lions delighted the 15,000 viewers along the route with a lively musical performance. The marching band will finish out its season by traveling to Orlando, Florida over the holiday break to perform in the Walt Disney World parade.

Finally, Dulaney High football players Tyler Woodard and Brian Sergi were named to the Baltimore County All-Star team and invited to play in the East-West Senior game Nov. 27 at Dundalk Community College.

Brian, an offensive lineman, and Tyler, a quarterback, played a terrific game with two touchdowns from Tyler, one rushing and one passing. Tyler was also named as a finalist for Baltimore County High School Football Player of the Year. Congratulations to both on stellar careers while at Dulaney.

Since 1957, Optimist Clubs around the world have recognized youth for their talents in the arts, athletics and academics and for contributions to community during the organization’s Youth Appreciation Week in November. Locally, the Timonium Optimist Club recognized four outstanding students by honoring their positive achievements in the community at a special dinner on Monday, Nov. 20.

Congratulations to eighth-graders Leah Cirincione and Caitlin Dates, from Saint Joseph’s School, and Daniel O’Donnell and Madison Sedgwick, who both are seniors at Dulaney High School.

Santa Claus has already begun his rounds in Cockeysville with the assistance of the Cockeysville Volunteer Fire Company.

Members of the fire company escort Santa Claus through local neighborhoods, stopping numerous times along the way so that children can have a chance to see the big guy. He has already toured the Springdale neighborhood, with an extended stop at their neighborhood bonfire Dec. 10. He will visit other neighborhoods in the coming days. Next up is a trip up Sherwood Hill Dec. 15 and Hunter’s Run Dec. 17. Santa will finish the season at Hunt Valley Chase Dec. 23.
