The Glen Cove Comanchees 12-U travel baseball team had a record of five wins and only one loss, defeating powerhouse squads such as HBQVB and East Meadow to advance to the playoffs in the annual tournament held on their home fields at John Maccarone Memorial Stadium.
In the crossover playoff rounds, the Comanchees topped the Long Island Mudcats by a score of 7-3 to advance to the championship game. The Comanchees faced the tough Long Island Colts. In a close defensive battle, the Comanchees came away with the win by a score of 5-1. Thomas Mavros’ pitching and hitting performance earned him the 2012 tournament’s M.V.P., having won three games on the mound while allowing only five earned runs. Brian Shannon, Thomas Paulich and Thomas Elletto were the hitting stars.
In their first home Friday night game under the lights, the Glen Cove High School varsity Big Red football team did not disappoint.

Cameron Maiden Field on Sept. 14. Marlon Hernandez and Ryan Perkins also had touchdown runs for the Big Red.
The Glen Cove Comanchees 12-U travel baseball team continued their winning ways earlier this month by taking The QSBL Wood Bat Division Championship by beating the Los Mets in the semifinals and then a strong Brooklyn Youth Services squad in the championship.

As classes resume at Glen Cove High School, the Big Red Varsity Football Team closed its summer camp and is ready for the 2012 season. Under head coach Peter Kopecky and assistants Steve Tripp, Tony Gallo and Mark Pnini, along with JV coaches Frank Curatolo and Brett Rubin, the football team has been in full swing since August 15.
“It has been a great summer,” said coach Kopecky, “The players and coaches have been working hard on the field, in the film room and in the weight room to make this a special year.”
The team, following its last Stanley Cup title in 1984, relocated to several different practice rinks throughout Long Island but hasn’t been able to recapture the magic of those Cantiague teams since.
On Aug. 11, 31-year-old Glen Cove speedster Lauren Jensen scored as the first woman finisher overall in the Sands Point Sprint for the Feinstein Institute, a 5 Kilometer race held on the grounds of the Sands Point Preserve. Jensen finished the run in 21 minutes, 12 seconds, which was four seconds in front of runner-up Bradie Ann Dwyer of Garden City.
A total of 300 runners and walkers successfully completed the run at the Sands Point Preserve, fighting off less-than-ideal hot and muggy conditions. The Sands Point course is not an easy course; the trail in the third mile can be tough to navigate, and the hill leading up from the trail is one of the nastiest found in any Long Island race, according to Mike Polansky of the Greater Long Island Running Club, which hosted the event.
