Staying In The Lane Of Success

How swimming shaped Coach Sullivan’s life

To say swimming is in Anne Sullivan’s blood is an understatement. Not only does Sullivan coach the boys’ and girls’ swimming teams at Garden City High School, but she also teaches swimming five days a week at Richmond Hill High School in Queens. She has been teaching for 18 years and coaching for even longer, as she puts it “for more than half my life.”

 

Sullivan is a previous student and 1972 graduate of Garden City High School, and she began her swimming career at the Garden City pool. When asked why she chose swimming to invest her life in, she accredited her father, who was also a swimmer. He introduced her to the sport, enabling her to discover her love and talent for it. It’s this dedication that found Anne Sullivan becoming the recent recipient of the Community Achievement Award at the Pineapple Ball, Garden City’s premiere business and social event.

Garden City falls short against Manhasset rivals

You’d have to forgive the Garden City players if they were experiencing déjà vu. For the second time this season, the Trojans found themselves facing a resilient Indians squad that wound up rallying to a victory over a strong Garden City team.

Just a few weeks ago, Manhasset fell short, losing by one goal. This time they returned the favor, beating the Trojans 4-3 en route to a Class B final date against Lynbrook.

Erica Giarraputo leads

Boston College to gold medal

Garden City native Erica Giarraputo, a Boston College student, recently led her synchronized skating team to the Gold Medal at the New England Challenge Cup in Massachusetts. The team was competing in the Open Collegiate bracket of the tournament.

Giarraputo, a freshman, began skating at the age of 12. “That is late for a beginner,” she said. She has certainly made up for the lost time, however, through her hard work and dedication to the craft.

Impressive season for Boys JV lacrosse team

The 2014 Garden City Junior Varsity lacrosse team posted an impressive 14-1-0 record against tough league and non-league competitors. Led by Head Coach Tom Flatley and Assistant Coach Brett Hepworth, the Trojans’ high octane offense, which averaged over 11 goals per game, proved too much in most every contest, as a stingy, gritty defense and stellar goaltending held opposing offenses to under four goals per game.

Senior leads way as Trojans win Wood Stick Classic

In his final Wood Stick Classic, Garden City senior Cody George made a lasting impression, netting a hat trick against his team’s Manhasset rivals.

The rivalry lived up to its billing as the Trojans held on for a 9-8 victory on Saturday afternoon in Garden City. Since 2000, the Trojans (11-2) have won 12 of the last 16 meetings between the teams.

“The Wood Stick has always been one of my favorite games to play in. The intensity is just insane, so many people in the crowd and just to beat Manhasset made my senior year 10 times better,” said George, who pushed his goal total for the year to 24.
