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.

Playoff appearance has program on right track

The Sewanhaka Indians snapped its playoff drought this season, making it to the postseason for the first time since 2010, but were bounced in the first round.

The Indians, led by head coach George Kasimatis, finished the regular season with a 4-4 record, after finishing each of the previous two seasons 2-6. That was good enough for the seventh seed in the Nassau County Conference III. The Indians went on the road to play the Lawrence High School Golden Tornadoes and lost 42-12.

Written by Michael Florio, Thursday, 21 November 2013 00:00

Sewanhaka Indians senior and wide receiver Jacques Francois  has one goal every time he steps out on the football field; to get better each week.

“I always try to better myself. Each game I look to get better,” said Francois . “I don’t pinpoint a key moment [individual performance] cause I always want to do better.”

Francois  came into the season as the most accoladed player on the Indians, winning an All-Conference award last year.

SHS football coach says both are primed for greatness

The quarterback competition for the Sewanhaka Indians was tight all summer, but experience trumped youth.

Jake Mellen won the job for the Sewanhaka High School’s varsity football team. Mellen, a senior, was battling sophomore Elijah Tracy.

“Jake had a better summer and performed better in the scrimmages,” said Indians head coach George Kasimatis. “He has a better grasp of the offense and he has a leadership role. Being a leader, he has more invested.”

Kasimatis does not want to take anything away from Tracy either.

The first-year varsity signal-caller is primed for the role in the next few seasons.


Stats Don’t Tell The Whole Story

Written by Michael Florio, Saturday, 12 October 2013 00:00

Sewanhaka High School Indians’ varsity football head coach George Kasimatis entered his fifth year with the program with a .500 record. Which could be interpreted a few different ways, if the statistics were all that mattered.

But Katsimatis is strives to do more than score points. Kasimatis believes in showing kids how hard work pays dividends—on and off the field.

“As an athlete you go out there and grind something and when you finally accomplish it, you learn how to do it,” he said. “Now if you don’t get something in one of your classes, you grind it out. You study, study and study until you get it.”

NBA Star hosts second annual basketball camp 

Just weeks after breaking an all-time NBA record for most threes on the biggest stage in basketball, San Antonio Spurs guard Danny Green recently hosted the Team Green Basketball Academy at Floral Park Memorial High School.


The camp was open to children of all skill levels from ages 5-18 and was the second year that the former St. Mary’s star hosted the camp at the Nassau County high school. 


“This year there’s a lot more variety,” said Green on his second day of the camp. “A lot more kids showed up and know about it. I know more kids and know the gyms better so why not do it again?”
