Congratulations to Class of 2010 alumnus Stefanie Dolson and her 3×3 basketball team members, who are now 2020 Tokyo Olympic Gold Medal winners!
Ms. Dolson and her teammates beat the Russian Olympic Committee (Russian team) in the gold medal game in a 18-15 final today, July 28. This is the first Olympics to feature 3×3 basketball.
She is the first Minisink Valley graduate to ever be a member of a U.S. Olympic team!
“This is very proud day for Minisink Valley,” said Superintendent Brian Monahan. “We’re so thrilled to have had a beginning role in Stefanie’s basketball and Olympic success. Stefanie’s drive and commitment to excellence — both on and off the court — remains a wonderful role model example for all our students. She and her family are also among the nicest people you’ll find anywhere. Congratulations to Stefanie, the Dolson family, her 3×3 teammates and everyone who had a role in this wonderful achievement.”
