Chestnut Hill School Where 3 Taney Dragons Attend Hosts Watch Party
By Tim Jimenez
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Taney Dragons lost to Nevada Wednesday night, but their Little League World Series hopes are still alive and so is the overwhelming support across the region.
That especially rings true for a Chestnut Hill school community that’s home to three of the Taney Twelve.
They held a watch party Wednesday night at the Courtyard at Springside Chestnut Hill Academy, which was packed with dozens of families, all eyes on a 25-foot big screen featuring their Dragons. All of them were proud of the city’s boys and girl of summer.
“They represented Philadelphia well and representing themselves well,” says Joel, a Springside parent of two.
It’s here where Scott Bandura, Jahli Hendricks and Sports Illustrated cover girl Mo’ne Davis go to school. Springside CIO Pete DiDonato says their success goes beyond the diamond:
“Three great kids because they really are. We see them in the hallways. They’re respectful, they’re very studious. They have fun, they’re joyful.”
And win or lose, Curt, who’s part of the Anderson Monarchs baseball family that a lot of Taney players are part of, says this World Series run is a success no matter what because of who these kids are:
“It really goes to show with all the work – good people do win in the end.”
