Glen Cove High School recognized outstanding athletes at its Booster Club awards night for the winter sports season on March 13. Seven winter athletic teams distributed varsity, junior varsity and special awards, including the Booster Club Award, Most Valuable Player (MVP) and the Superintendent’s Award.
“The purpose of interscholastic goes far beyond winning and competition,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Joseph Laria during his remarks at the ceremony. “The interscholastic program is a lifeline of our school district.”
What a first game and it was league; the girls came out a little tentatively against Carey but played well enough for a 5–3 lead at half time. The girls took the second half by storm, 8–2 with the final score being a win 13–5.
The way they settled down and played their way was something to be proud of, with the double-teaming through the midfield and in the defensive end. Alison Abrams, Emily Durso, Lauren Dwyer and Sam DiPaola were key players. Selena Guastella won the majority of the centre draws in the second half allowing the team’s attack to set up and score.
The amazing Hawks, a second-grade basketball team playing for St. Rocco’s CYO, awed the crowds over the past few months and proved to be the champions in this year’s CYO basketball program at St. Rocco’s. The long shot team showed amazing talent and skill, winning all of the games to come in first place at last week’s championship games. To prove to all that it was not a fluke, the team continued its winning streak to win the All Stars Championship later that evening.
So far, the Glen Cove “Under 15” rugby team is off to a positive start this season.
“Two wins from two games, but there’s no let-up. We play a New Zealand style of running rugby that the spectators enjoy,” said Coach John Royal of the Glen Cove Under 15 (u15) rugby team.
The varsity squad this year is full of enthusiasm, drive, aggression and speed and is ready to move forward from last year’s success. There are 20 girls on the squad and Lauren Portnoy is the new assistant coach. Portnoy was the junior varsity coach last season and is a wonderful addition to the team.
The 20 player squad is led by 12 returning players: Seniors Ariana Cavallone, Alex Gerin, Tori Durso, Emily Durso, Ali Durso, Alison Abrams, Meghan O’Connell, Briana Moglia, Remi Farnan. Juniors: Gabby Morrocu, Lauren Dwyer, Angelica Morra. Newcomers to the squad are seniors: Meghan Peet, Delia Trainor. Juniors: Jennifer Ingegno, Emily Asip. Sophmores: Samantha DiPaola, Gillian Farnan, Christina DelGrosso. Freshman: Selena Guastella.
The Big Red Varsity Lacrosse Team is ready to open their 2012 season. Coach Steve Tripp enters his 25th season at the helm of Glen Cove and said, “We have had a lot of success over the past four years, and I feel this group can pick up where last year’s team left off.”
The 2011 season ended in the playoffs, and this year’s team is looking to continue the momentum. For that to happen, the Big Red will rely on their senior class to provide the leadership that all good teams have. Captains Dennis Ramadan and Chris Saperstein are playing their third season on the varsity. Ramadan’s shooting will play a big factor in the 2012 season. Saperstein, the Big Red’s faceoff specialist, is on the sidelines right now, rehabbing off-season knee surgery. GC’s other two captains will play two vital roles for the Big Red. Scott Nicolich is the Big Red’s playmaker and the team’s leading returning scorer. Goalie Nick Manzione proved to be a more than capable goaltender as he garnered Honorable-Mention All-County honors in 2011.
On March 3, the North Shore Girls’ Varsity Basketball team experienced an impressive win against Garden City in the Nassau County Championship game. It was the program’s first title. But the season didn’t stop there. The girls trained every day after school before participating in the Long Island Championship game at SUNY Farmingdale Friday, March 9. Many of the girls on the team have been playing together since middle school, so they knew Friday’s game would be emotional, no matter what the outcome was.
The North Shore Varsity Girls Basketball Team completed their last week of play in the Nassau County season on February 29 at Freeport High School in the Nassau County Semifinals and on March 3, at C.W. Post campus in the Nassau County Class “A” Championship.
In the first game the Vikings took on the Knights of Floral Park. The Vikings came out very flat offensively in the game and found themselves down 26-25 at the half, despite the outstanding defensive pressure of Christine Castiglione, Micaela Dussel, Tara Feehan, Nicole Scuderi and Ashleigh Sheerin.
On Friday, Feb. 17, The Glen Cove Junior Football and Cheerleading Association held their annual awards night at the Glen Cove High School.

This year’s Iron Men are Elijah Ambles, Michael Payton, Robbie Poncet, Fernando Aguilar, Nick Kiaer, Corey Dinkins and Ryan Porteus.
