Coach Roman with the 1998 NY State Cross Country champion squad from Jordan-Elbridge.  Only sports state championship in school history.  The boys traveled to the Olympic Village of Lake Placid and turned back the entire field of class B schools on the Biathlon ski course (used in the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympics) at Mount Van Hoevenberg.
2 Time Ugly Beard Champ (2009, and 2011).  Ugly Beard competition was a Jordan-Elbridge food fund raiser between the male staff that ran from the end of Thanksgiving vacation until the last day before Christmas break.  The staff member who collected the most food won the Ugly Beard trophy for the year

Convincer photo – as I mentioned, New York State Police would regularly be guests in my Driver Education class.  This time, bringing the seat belt ‘Convincer’.  The ‘Convincer’ simulates a 5 mph crash and an air bag simulation.  Student volunteer Mike Marrero courageously takes the impact.  Safety education does not only take place in a vehicle.
