Caitlin Dellecave, a senior on the Patchogue-Medford Volleyball team was recognized as Athlete of the Month for September. On the high school volleyball team since middle school, she is now the captain of the varsity team during her senior year.
This month, Caitlin was acknowledged for reaching a milestone in her volleyball career. She got her 1,000th assist and will now hold the school record for reaching that number.
“Volleyball is all about communicating with your teammates and it’s a high speed game which makes it so fun,” said Caitlin Dellecave.
Also, by volunteering at clinics and summer camps throughout the year for children in middle school, she is teaching them useful skills to know so they can also be successful in sports.
Caitlin will be attending Stony Brook University in the fall of 2020 to continue playing another sport she loves, lacrosse.

Kylie Peregoy, a senior on the Patchogue-Medford Field Hockey Team, was recognized as Athlete of the Month for September. Kylie is a three year varsity captain, leading the team in goals and assists. In a game at the end of September, she had a hat trick and the third goal was the game winner in overtime.
“Kylie is a great leader and sets a high standard of play,” said Coach Sacco.
Constantly encouraging and supporting her teammates, Kylie also works hard and sets high standards for herself. She is on the student athlete advisory committee and was involved with raising money for breast cancer in the “Stick it to Cancer” field hockey game.
“This sport has created countless memories and many opportunities as well as friendships that will last me a lifetime,” said Kylie Peregoy.
To continue growing her love for the sport in college, Kylie recently committed to play Field Hockey at Adelphi University in the fall of 2020.
