May Athletes of the Month

Daniela Vidal

Daniela Vidal is a four-year varsity starter who has had a tremendous senior season as one of the captains of the Lady Bulldogs Softball team. Daniela’s performance on the field, and her leadership with a group of young players, has paved the way for the Lady Bulldogs to continue to show their dominance in Passaic County having for the second consecutive county tournament advanced to the county finals, unfortunately they could not defend their 2019 Passaic County Crown.

Daniela’s career statistical information includes: a .476 Career Batting Average, 3-time selection to the Big North Conference All-Liberty Division team, a 3-time selection to the PCCA All-County team, and a 1st Team All State Shortstop selection. On Monday, May 17, 2021, Daniela became only the 2nd Lady Bulldogs Softball player to reach the 100 Hits Plateau, forever etching her name in the PCTI record books. The most amazing part of all these accomplishments is that Daniela only had three seasons to accomplish this feat, just imagine if the 2020 season was not lost to the pandemic.

As member of the School of Business, Daniela has a current year GPA of 3.7 and ranks in the top one-third of her graduating class. She will be attending Bloomfield College in the Fall where she will be continuing her academic and athletic career while playing Softball for the Lady Bears. We wish to congratulate Daniela and the entire Lady Bulldogs Softball team on an amazing 2021 Spring season.

Keshon Holt

Keshon Holt is a three-year varsity starter who during the month of May/June, as senior on the Boys’ spring track team lead the Bulldogs sprint team with some amazing marks in the 100-meter, 200-meter race, 4 x 400-meter relay and with the Bulldogs’ jumps squad. Keshon, who was also a standout football player for the Bulldogs, was able to re-write the record books for PCTI Track & Field this spring, setting two (2) new school records while twice “besting” his own personal records. Keshon now holds the Bulldog outdoor record in the 100-meter dash (10.81) and the 200-meter dash (21.57).

He helped to lead the Bulldogs to a Passaic County Championship (personally scoring 38 team points) and a week later to a NSIAA North 1 Group 4 Sectional Championship (personally scoring 25 team points), this would be the first time since 1990 that PCTI would capture a State Sectional Championship in Boys Track & Field. On Saturday, June 19, 2021 at the NJSIAA Group 4 Championship Meet, Keshon took home the Gold Medal in the 200-meter dash, making him a Group 4 State Champion in the event.

As member of the School of Business, Keshon has made plans to attend Monroe College in the Fall where he will be continuing his academic and athletic career while concentrating on Track & Field with the hopes of one day transferring to a Division I College/University. We wish to congratulate Keshon and the entire Bulldogs Track team on an amazing 2021 Spring season that included a County Championship and North 1 Group 4 State Sectional Championship!
