It’s amazing how many people are willing to jump into the winter waters of Oyster Bay Harbor for a good cause. The United Cerebral Palsy Association of Nassau County, Inc. (ucpn) hosted its 7th Annual Polar Bear Plunge benefit fundraiser at Theodore Roosevelt Town Park and Marina in Oyster Bay. The parking lot was in the midst of a construction project to create new playing fields but it didn’t deter the crowd. It was a rain or shine event and luckily the rain waited until the swimmers were out of the water!
The North Shore Girls Varsity Basketball team finished up the season with three games in one week. The first one was the last game of the regular season, a Valentine’s Day match-up with Valley Stream South. From the opening tip, the Vikings offense was clicking as they hit 9 first half three-pointers, and with timely buckets by Cara Dellavecchia, they raced out to a 51-36 halftime lead. It was more of the same in the third quarter as the relentless North Shore pressure saw them race to a 75-51 lead to start the 4th quarter when the Vikings stopped pressing to cruise to a 95-63 victory. In the game the Vikings were led by Erin Sheerin’s career high 23 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists and a career high in rebounds (10) and assists (5) for 8th grader Alex Cantwell, who also chipped in 6 points. In the game, North Shore set school records for points scored (95) and three-pointers made (16) as 9 different girls hit at least one three-pointer: Erin and Liz Sheerin (4 each), Olivia Calcaterra (2), and Jackie Gioia, Claire Castellano, Nicole Scuderi, Erin Breen, Caroline Robertson and Micaela Dussel with one each.

The U9 girls finished in first place at East Meadow’s 19th annual indoor intramural tournament. The girls played four awesome games scoring nine goals and only allowing two goals throughout the entire tournament. The girls finished with a record of 3 wins, no losses and 1 draw.
The first game played was against Plainedge Red, with a score of 4-1 Wildcats. The Wildcats came out strong, passing and controlling the flow of the game. Eve Fine scored one goal; Julianna Cavallone scored two goals, and Macy Lewis scored one goal.
No one voted for these wrestlers to be named All County. Not one coach could argue his wrestler was better or more deserving. It comes down to proving yourself on the mat in front of hundreds of spectators and earning your distinction by beating the best wrestlers in the county head to head, one at a time. Three North Shore wrestlers did just that and earned the “All County ” title by placing in the Nassau County Division 1 Wrestling Tournament held this past Saturday and Sunday at Hofstra University.
The Portledge Lady Panthers, who have a mark of 14 wins and 4 losses overall, won 12 consecutive IPPSAL Varsity Girls Basketball games in route to capturing their second straight league championship. Portledge earned the top seed in championship play by winning all 10 of their IPPSAL regular season match ups, and then went on to defeat Lawrence Woodmere Academy in the semifinals and the Waldorf School of Garden City in the IPPSAL Championship game.
The North Shore Girls Varsity Gymnastics team ended their team season on Monday, Feb. 7. North Shore won the meet against Valley Stream Central with a score of 132.15 to 124. This set their final conference record at 8 and 1. North Shores high scores were received from Sabrina Swenson on the floor exercise (8.6), Talia Morales on the balance beam (7.5) and Minnie Hou on the vault (7.8). A beautiful ending to a remarkable season.
Glen Cove High School defeated North Shore High School for the third time this season on Friday, February 11. With both teams struggling lately, neither wanted to be the one to drop the Friday night rivalry rematch, as the two teams last met back on January 14.
The gym was again packed (though with a majority of Glen Cove’s Red Army back at college after the holidays the atmosphere wasn’t quite as crazy as the previous game), but the bleachers were filled with parents and students from both districts rooting on their team and taunting the opposing school’s fans.
The Glen Cove boys’ basketball team will be looking to put a stop to its four-game losing streak on Tuesday with a must-win game against Valley Stream South, which currently sits one spot ahead of them in the conference standings.
Valley Stream is currently 3-7 while Glen Cove is 3-6 in league play. The Big Red defeated Valley Stream the first time the two teams met by a score of 71-67, and is hoping for another repeat performance on Tuesday. However, that was at a time when the team was scoring 50-60 points per game; the past few games they have only managed to put up 40 some odd points per game.
