Peter Hoffmann, a Garrison resident and 2015 Haldane graduate who this year finished his career at Hamilton College with 1,488 points, was one of 22 student-athletes from 19 colleges selected for the Sport Changes Life Foundation’s annual Victory Scholar Program. The program allows NCAA student-athletes to play for universities in Ireland while pursuing postgraduate studies and working with children and teens in the community. Hoffmann will attend the Cork Institute of Technology.

The Haldane Blue Devil Booster Club has announced the 2019 class for the high school’s Athletic Hall of Fame: Richard Kiesbye (Class of 1967, baseball), Russell Miller (1978, track), David Milkovich (1982, football), Chelsea Lisikatos (2011, softball) and the 1998 volleyball team (Coach Toni Woody, Aaron Nastasi, Courtney Lyons, Denise Hunt, Dina DelVecchio, Emily Perpich, Kristen DeMino, Kristen Lindner, Megan Varricchio, Melissa Jamin, Rebecca Sabshin and Tony Susi), which won the first of the school’s four Class D state championships.

The inductees will be honored at a luncheon on Sunday, Sept. 22, at Dutchess Manor in Beacon. Register at or by calling 845-265-9254, ext. 160.
