Back To The Mountaintop

Written by Ed Rotondo, Wednesday, 18 September 2013 00:00

Considering that last year was a rebuilding year and the Garden City football team came away with a Long Island championship, I’m not sure what Coach Flatley has up his sleeve this year. Not unlike last season when the Trojans graduated a number of their starters on both offense and defense, Flatley and his staff will have to retool again this year as they lost several key members to graduation.

Flatley, in his 29th year coaching, didn’t just get inducted into the Hall of Fame because of his bright smile, it’s more his ability to mold the group of young men he gets each year into a cohesive team. He and his staff will be able to build upon several cornerstones of last year’s championship team, namely quarterback Brett Stewart, running backs James Sullivan and Tim McDonagh and linemen Ryan Blair and Nick Giannone.

Varsity soccer preview –

Teams poised for success

Who can believe that the school year is upon us and summer is over? The athletes that started training two weeks ago might be the first to answer but not because they couldn’t wait for summer to end but because they are looking forward to their fall seasons on the soccer field.

Tryouts began in earnest on Monday morning, Aug. 26 for both squads as they look to build upon last season’s successes. The early days of tryouts are focused on returning the teams to some sense of conditioning and re-familiarizing the players with the ball. As teams moved forward in the week all four coaches were excited for the upcoming season.

Coach Anne Sullivan’s

discipline sets tone for

undefeated swim teams

In true David Letterman fashion the Garden City girls swim team made up t-shirts a year back that listed the 10 top reasons to swim for Garden City High School and the number one reason is this week’s subject, Coach Anne Sullivan. Well known throughout the community as the driving force to the very successful swim programs at the high school, Sullivan has developed and nurtured many a Garden City youngster to love the water. Her passion, dedication and commitment to a sport that she has loved since she was a youngster comes through each and every time she interacts with either a student athlete, a parent or another coach.

This past spring Sullivan was presented with the Female Coach of the Year award by Athletic Director Nancy Kalafus at the annual Coaches Golf Outing and Dinner hosted by the Garden City Men’s Association.
