With nearly 10,000 hits in a week of the high school's Spirit Week "Happy" lip-synch video, the Mountaineers exhibited the same enthusiasm as their spring sports teams were recognized:

Coach Victor Alcindor and the Boys Tennis Team

Coach Bill Urbanski and the Golf Team 

Coach Stephan Zichella and the Boys Baseball Team

Coach Joel Troast and the Girls Softball Team

Coaches Mike Velez and Dave Perez and the Boys Lacrosse Team

Coach Picataggio and the Track and Field Team.

Highlights of the evening included a dance routine by the 37 seniors of the Track and Field team and recognition of State Champions Aliyah Barnes (Hurdles) and Barden Adams (High jump).

James Reitberger, a school district employee and WOHS graduate, was presented with a card signed by the athletes. Reitberger is currently battling leukemia.

The West Orange High School Boys Step Team performed for the crowd, followed by staff, coaches,  senior parents, and athletes gathering to dance to "Happy."

The Alternative Press will be providing more sports team previews and beginning coverage for spring sports over the next week.
