Experience Will Aid Indians Next Year

Written by Michael Florio, floralpark@antonnews.com Thursday, 20 February 2014 11:08

The Sewanhaka Indians boys’ basketball team dropped a win-and-in game on Monday, Feb. 10 to Roslyn High School, 70-69, which officially knocked the Indians out of the playoffs. The team  finished over .500 for the first time under head coach Jason Allen.

The Indians had the ball, down by three with 15 seconds left, looking to score and force Roslyn to make free throws. They missed two shots but kept getting the rebounds and were finally able to score to cut the deficit down to one as time expired.

On Saturday, March 15, the Third Annual Tom Hayden Our Lady of Victory (OLV) 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament will take place at the school’s gymnasium. The event is hosted by the OLV School Board and is open to ages 13 and older.

This year’s honorees are George Rettinger and Joe Power, in memoriam. Rettinger was CYO president and a long-time coach. Power, who passed away several years ago, spent many years coaching in the program, often at Rettinger’s side. The funds raised will enhance OLV’s technology program.

 

Bodden Believes And So Should You

The Sewanhaka Indians boys basketball team does not only count on Carlos Bodden to lead them in scoring, but also to lead them on and off the court.

This is evident as Bodden, the teams starting small forward, is only a junior but is already a team captains.

“He really is a role model for us on the court, specifically with how hard he plays,” said Indians head coach Jason Allen. “He sets a great example around school, he’s a great kid.”

Bodden ranks 14th in Nassau County, averaging 18.1 points-per-game. Both Bodden and Allen still see ways he can improve, which should only scare teams in the Indians conference even more.

basketball tourney

While most kids have fun during Christmas break, some St. Anne’s Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) 4th graders managed to have fun and put a trophy under the tree at the same time.

The St. Anne’s 4th grade boys CYO basketball team went undefeated to claim the championship in the Our Lady of Victory Christmas Basketball Tournament, held in Floral Park. The OLV tournament, which ran from Dec. 21-Dec. 29, featured some of the better CYO teams from across the region. Following wins over Notre Dame and Corpus Christi, the St. Anne’s boys captured the title with a victory over St. Rose in the championship game. Throughout the tournament, the boys displayed an unselfish attitude, some hard-nosed defense, and a relentless desire to win.
