Towson Club Lacrosse team participated this year in the 2010 Cherry Blossom Lacrosse Festival in Washington D.C. on April 17. The team, led by Captain Meghan Wall, a 2007 Glen Cove High School graduate, won 3 games and tied 1 in the tournament.
Entering their Monday evening contest with Manhasset, the North Shore Vikings Varsity Softball team was looking to extend their conference record to a 12-3 total. To accomplish this, they would end up needing one run, and it came very early in the game.
The top of the first inning saw North Shore score the only run of the game, when Elle Hoffman bunted in the game’s only run, with Christine Castiglione scoring on the play. North Shore pitcher Hanna Hacker took over from there, striking out seven batters over 5 shutout innings. She picked up the win and North Shore gave themselves the victory they were looking for, as well as that 12th conference win. This also happened to be the second time this season North Shore defeated Manhasset in a one run game, the other time the score ended at 3-2.
The Glen Cove Boy’s Lacrosse Team enter the last week of the 2010 season after a tough loss to number 1 seed Lynbrook. Owen Valance was the Big Red high scorer with 3 goals, Dougie Tripp and Daven Plummer each added one.
The Big Red will celebrate Senior Day on Friday, May 14. The game marks the last home game for the Big Red’s 14 seniors. Many of the boys started out as third-graders graders in the Jr. League and all will be heading off to college next year.
The North Shore Men’s Lacrosse team earned an exciting victory over the McArthur Generals this past Saturday at the annual North Shore Lacrosse Day. North Shore played tough defense throughout only allowing 4 goals. The defense was lead by goaltender Alec Volpe who recorded 22 saves.
Assisting Volpe on the defensive end was Dan Broker, Macklin Carballal, and Nick Capparelli.
Under the lights, the Girl’s Varsity Lacrosse Team played a very skilled and tough game against Elmont. The girls very quickly established their passing game to counter the innate speed of the Elmont Girls. This allowed us to get the ball down into the offense and get a shot off before they had their defense in place. The girls worked so well as a team with everyone being a contributing factor.
The defense was spearheaded by Brittany Baker, who called the plays and set up the defense, the other players being: Tori, Ali and Emily Durso, Julie Bruschini, and Julia Oh.
Last week, the Glen Cove Boy’s Lacrosse Team opened conference play with a convincing 12-3 victory over the Malverne/East Rockaway Rockin’ Mules. Leading the way offensively for the Big Red were Dougie Tripp and Owen Valance each scoring four goals, Ryan Zupa had two, Daven Plummer and Chris Borer each scored one. Kevin Nicholas added three assists and Mike Moglia had one.
The Lady Vikings are still going strong with two Conference crossover games this week. Their record is now 10-2 for the season. On April 21 they beat Valley Stream North 6-1, Elle Hoffman had two homeruns and Christine Castiglione went 3-4 with an RBI. Pitcher Hanna Hacker who joined the Varsity team in eighth-grade, has proven to be a very strong player for this team. Elle Hoffman had another home run against Wheatley and Regan Falk went 2 for 3 with two RBIs. A tradition in High School sports is the Senior Game, the last home game of the season where the younger players honor the outgoing Seniors. At the April 27th game, North Shore wished all the best to Regan Falk, Elle Hoffman, Jennifer Melgar and Megan Silka, North Shore team players all through their school years.

By Coach Carmine Rotolo
He has been the workhorse of the pitching staff for the past three years. Every game he pitches seems to possess a playoff-like atmosphere. And this week was no different. Peter Cappiello pitched another splendid game for the Big Red as Glen Cove notched a milestone victory over Clarke, the defending Long Island champions, 3-2, in 8 innings. This win is not only huge for our program; it’s just as big for the senior class. It is the first victory against the powerhouse team since Cappiello and the other five seniors on the squad arrived at Glen Cove High School. This was the series that those seniors circled on their calendars. They wanted to know if our team had what it took to beat the perennial Nassau champs. The answer finally arrived. Cappiello struck out 10, allowed one walk, two runs and 4 hits. Senior Richie Maccarone continued to mash the ball by roping a triple to the deepest part of right field. That ball would have cleared the fence if it wasn’t for the prevailing winds. The speedy shortstop legged out an infield hit and also stole two bases. He finished the day going 2-3. Sophomore Chris Theodoro, who was a late addition to the varsity roster after an impressive spring training, went 2-3 with two hard hit singles. Chris’s first varsity at-bat in Florida was against a kid that was throwing heat. After he ripped a single into centerfield, the coaching staff knew that this kid was ready to contribute on the varsity level. And contribute is what the whole team has done early on in the season. After only getting three hits against Wantagh, Glen Cove has turned it up a bit. The Covers pounded out seven hits against Clarke’s number one pitcher. Everyone contributes in their own way to this team. We want guys that feel compelled to play team baseball and will do anything to help our team win ballgames.
The Lady Vikings are off to a great season standing 5-1 as of April 12. In the past week the girls have played 5 games in 5 days, coming out on top in all five, they beat Cold Spring Harbor 18-3 and a big win against Garden City, 18-5. On Friday, 4/9 the girls played Wantagh, they were tied in the top of the 7th Inning, Anne Duffy gave them a nice hit to win and gave Wantagh their first loss of the season. The effort on the team has come from everyone; Anne Duffy with excellent at bats, Alex Grande’s second base coverage and a big home run from Elle Hoffman. Come watch the girls varsity softball team!
