The third- and fourth-grade Knights took to the road last weekend as they faced off against Jericho early Sunday morning, April 6. Jericho’s teamwork and hustle brought down the Knights by a final score of 5 – 0. The early game may have been a factor as the boys started to play better and more like a team as the game went on. Once again, goalie Tyler Shea played outstanding in goal and was relieved by Christian Maiorano, who did just as well in the second half. Andrew Guster played solid defense in the loss.
The Glen Cove Junior Lacrosse Club kicked off their 20th season with the third- and fourth-grade boys winning their home opener against Deer Park on a moist and muddy Sunday morning.
Despite the weather forecast, the boys were determined to play after spending the last three months practicing indoors. It was a hard fought battle with the lead changing several times, but at the end Glen Cove managed to hold on for a 6 – 5 victory.
Anchoring the victory was goalie Tyler Shea, who stopped several point blank one-on-ones and recorded 13 saves in the game. The offense started slow, but began clicking as the game went on. Providing the firepower was Ryan Houghton with two goals and Micah Stone, Eamon Doyle, Andrew Epifania and Lukasz Dubicki, each adding one. Epifania and Andrew Bisch each had an assist in the winning effort.
Glen Cove High School hosted the PTSA-sponsored Red vs. Green Games last month, an evening of traditional and non-traditional sporting activities in which students and adults represented their schools of past and present allegiance by donning either red- or green-colored attire. Students of all ages came to their schools the day of the event wearing either red or green. Gribbin and Connolly elementary schools are traditional green schools while Deasy and Landing are red schools.

As a captain for the varsity baseball team at North Shore High School, Tim Maxwell plays alongside fellow seniors Ryan Perro and Nick Daley to help lead their team to a winning season – hopefully bringing them to the county championship and possibly states. They play by the philosophy of working hard.
All three players plan to extend their baseball careers into college after graduation. Perro will be attending Plymouth State University in the fall, playing first base and pitching. With the support of his team members, coaches, and parents, Perro has the support he needs, on and off the field.
The North Shore High School held its much anticipated annual Sports Night on Feb. 27. Through healthy competition, students from each of the four classes competed in relays and activities to declare which class is “the best” in the school. Each class chose a holiday as a theme for night and filled the gymnasium’s walls and bleachers with colorful decorations. The freshmen chose Halloween, the sophomores Valentine’s Day, the juniors the Fourth of July, and the seniors chose New Year’s Eve.
Since spaces were limited, some seniors arrived at school as early as 3 a.m. on a cold day in January to register for this school spirit event and secure spots in different relays. In the week leading up to Sports Night, the student participants worked hard after each school day to prepare their entrances and dances, create cleverly themed decorations, and practice the relay events. Some of the relays and activities included the scooter race, obstacle course, tug of war, and a student choreographed exercise/dance. During each relay, the energy could be felt through the cheering and chanting from the audience and student participants. Many parents and classmates came to support the participants and display their North Shore Viking pride.

Close to 30 students and 15 faculty members laced up the sneakers and hit the hardwood for this spirited event. Several other students volunteered their time as referees, announcers and scorekeepers. The GCHS Heroes Club also donated funds to the Torres family raised through a charity bake sale.
