UPDATE: Former NRHS Cheerleading Head Coach Chrissy Stanionis, through her attorney states:
"The current squad is subject to a ban of all post season competitions, not explicitly the NYSPHSAA competition to be held in March 2018, the squad would have to qualify for the NYSPHSAA competition as a matter of course."
EDITOR’S NOTE: Repeated attempts through media inquiries and Freedom of Information requests to clarify the nature and extent of the “suspension” of ”ban” with officials from the NYSPHSAA, Section 1/Southern Westchester BOCES and the City School District of New Rochelle were repeatedly stonewalled over the past year. Six months ago we asked New Rochelle Athletic Director Steve Young to confirm information we received from a “Cheerleading parent” that the team was ”barred from all postseason competition for two years. ( '17-18 and '18-19 seasons). That would exclude them from sectionals and states." Young would only say “not two years” and refused to elaborate further. Other sources at the state level would only say on background the team was “barred“ from the state championships. BOCES refused to answer questions or provide any records under FOIL. We have never understood why the incident last March, the resulting disciplinary process, whatever ban or bar or suspension was handed down and by whom (we still do not know for sure which body made the decision although the NYSPHSAA has been adamant that it was not them and directed our inquiries to SWBOCES). As these are public schools and state agencies and action was taken against a sports team as a whole not individuals (so there is no personal privacy issue) we see no reason for the full story and related records (with individual names redacted if appropriate under the FOIL law). We will continue to pursue both the story and the records. We have made a new approach to SWBOCES seeking answers and records.
