The GC Senior Red Junior Football team’s 2010 journey has come to an end. GC lost their semifinal playoff game against Brentwood 27-13. Though the score indicates a decisive victory by Brentwood, the first half of the game was typical of this GC team. A fast scoring start by GC occurred when David Perkins threw a 50-yard bomb to Yamique Webb for a TD on the first play of the game, punctuated by an extra point on a Jack Mangan pass to Chris Lent in the corner of the end zone. GC’s second TD came from HB Yamique Webb in the second quarter when Yamique took a 50-yard sweep into the end zone. Brentwood’s first TD came when a fumble, forced by GC’s powerful defense, was picked by Bentwood’s fullback who ran 40 yards for the score. Brentwood scored again in the first half, but missed the extra point and GC went into half time ahead 13-12. As the second half began it was apparent that the 17-man roster was beginning to show signs of wear. Brentwood continued their aggressive style of play through the second half by which the GC Cardinal Red had no offensive answer. Brentwood scored two additional TDs, one on a blocked punt to end the game 27-13. The season for the GC Red has been long but not without great memories. The team went 7-1-1, took first place in tier one in their division and avenged a loss in the regular season against the defending champions Rosedale to win a quarter final playoff game. A thank you for a rewarding experience and great season was offered by the coaches. A thank you to all the seniors who participated in the program over the past years, and good luck next year to the 12-year-olds coming back to continue the successful GC junior football tradition.
The Thanksgiving holiday is a time when we make a genuine effort to give thanks to everyone that has made a positive contribution in our lives. During our 60th year, Glen Cove Jr. Baseball & Softball had over 600 boys and girls participate in the program. Running a program of this magnitude is not an easy undertaking. With busy schedules it becomes more and more difficult to get the volunteers needed to truly be successful. The board of GCJB & S would like to give a big thank you to all those that have given to the boys & girls of our program this year.
Women’s Cross-Country Class “A” State Champions
There have been a lot of firsts for the North Shore Women’s Cross-Country team this season: 14-0 regular season record, Division Champions, Conference Champions, Nassau County Class “A” Champions, Nassau County overall champions and now for the first time in school history a sports team at North Shore High School has won a state championship.

This accomplishment was not only historic to the North Shore School District but to Nassau County as well. It is the first time in 18 years that any cross-country team in Nassau County has won a state championship. The last team to do so was Wantagh in 1992, before any of the current team members were even born.

For the fifth consecutive year the North Shore Women’s Cross-Country team has won the Conference Championship. Even this accomplishment appeared routine for this historic program and it represents a level of consistency and discipline not often seen. The dynasty continues with our new, talented, and hard working freshmen. The 2010 team is filled with more seniors than in the past, as they have helped build, contribute and enjoy the program’s success. This past Saturday, the team blew away the competition by placing 7 runners in the top 11 places in the 100-person race. This resulted in a 44 point victory over the next closest team in Conference Four. Tremendous performances were run by seniors Danielle Muoio, Marielle Genovesi, Lauryn Cartagine and Nicolette Dayre. They have helped lead by example and performance during the course of this season. Other personal bests were achieved by the “Super Sophomores” Elizabeth Caldwell and Jessica Donohue as they have been at the top of their game in all competitions. Not to be outdone was the Junior Varsity team who swept the competition in their race as they placed 1-5. Top performers included race winner and Freshman Olivia Statile, Junior Nicole Milani, Sophomores Gillian McGovern, and Monica Winski and Freshman Alexandra Osman.
The North Shore Vikings Field Hockey team had a stellar week of play against top conference competition Garden City. Although the Vikings lost 2-0 to Garden City it was a hard fought battle between the 25’s for both teams. Garden City scored with 2:37 left in the first half, putting them up 1-0 going into halftime. The Vikings held Garden City off as NS dominated midfield play. Senior goalkeeper Lauren Gerard totaled 14 saves on the game. Two days later, North Shore met longtime conference rivals Manhasset. Junior Isabella Ahrens returned to the starting lineup after being out for 4 weeks with an injury. Her return helped the Vikings play Manhasset to 0-0 first half. Manhasset scored late in the second half but North Shore answered back with 21 seconds remaining in the game. Junior Lyndsay Ahrens scored off an assist from junior sweeper Laura Wefer who pushed through the midfield. Seniors Jennie Berglin, Lauren Janelli, and Danielle Valasiadis lead the team in both games with their experience covering the field.
The Glen Cove Girls Varsity Tennis season is officially over, and what a great season it was. Participating in Conference III has always been a challenge for us and so expectations for the season were never a sure thing. Still, with some experience in our favor with returning players, things began to get intense when the wins were piling up and the play-offs were within reach. The season record finished with the Glen Cove girls in second place (9-3), to first place MacArthur H.S. (11-1) and a solid berth in the playoffs.
