Football? Puh-lease. Wrestling? Forget it. Now, water boiler repair… there’s a sport!
William E. Grady Career and Technical Education High School played host to the 7th annual Service and Installation Student competition, in which students studying Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) gathered together with inspection managers and heating installation specialist to judge them on their hands on performances.
Of the three competing schools – Grady High School (25 Brighton 4th Road), Alfred E. Smith Career and Technical Education High School in Bronx, and Saunders Trades and Technical High School in Yonkers – the last took home the trophy for the second year in a row.
Jeffrey Santos, 17, student at Saunders High School, felt confident and said he knew they’d win before the competition started.
“Yeah, we’re going to win,” he said with nary a doubt.
