The Glen Cove High School Boys Basketball Team opened up their season on Thursday, Dec. 9, with a non-league victory over Valley Stream North High School. The Knights, who were one win away from a playoff spot last year, won by a score of 50-46.
The team relied on its quick defensive play and strong inside game to win a hard fought game. Glen Cove, who took the lead quickly, thanks to some key rebounds and put backs by junior Mauro Carignano and the team’s opening success with the full court press.

The Glen Cove wrestling team has a new coach in charge this year. Chris MacDonald, former volunteer assistant coach to the team, was handed the reins this year and is very excited for the upcoming season.
“We have a young team,” MacDonald said, “a lot of young guys; everyone is excited and motivated about the season.”
The Big Red, which finished in the middle of the pack at 20th in Nassau County last year, is looking to improve upon their record. They lost some key members of the team in Mike Ianetta (who was fourth in the county last year), Hector Paez, Sasha Bogdanich (holds the Glen Cove record with over 100 wins), and Danny Belfiore (currently playing football at C.W. Post). These are some big shoe to follow, but four year varsity wrestlers and senior captains Alexey Bogvanich (younger brother of Sasha) and Aaron Sylver, along with junior captain Nicholas McAdams, are up to the task, anchoring a team composed of many ninth- and tenth-graders and one eighth-grader, some of whom are expected to make an impact this year.
