Ranked first in a competitive class, Carey High School’s 2013 Valedictorian Sara Stiklickas is admired by students and faculty alike for her composure, dedication, and professionalism. She is an exceptional member of the Carey community who puts her heart into every activity and club she is involved in.

This young lady has shown her leadership skills as president of Mathletes, editor-in-chief of Poseidon and as the drum major. Stiklickas is also an extremely valuable member of the national, foreign language, science, English, art, and the music Honor Societies.

This multi-talented athlete is also captain of the Varsity Girl’s Golf team where she has earned many honors. In addition, she has volunteered her time at a medical center, tutored younger students, and she earned her Girl Scout’s Gold Award by teaching Italian to elementary school students. 

Alyssa Mayer shows nothing but sincerity and kindness to those around her. Mayer’s personal warmth and excellent character make her well liked by both the faculty and the students at H. Frank Carey High School.

Her positive and humble nature are hallmarks of her character. Ranked number two in a class of 277, Mayer has demonstrated excellent work in all subject areas and works hard on all assignments.

In addition to being an excellent student, Mayer has demonstrated outstanding athletic talent on the field. She is a student whose depth of character, sincerity, and concern for others are as strong as her academic talents and versatility.

Leading by example and commitment, Mayer has earned the trust of teammates and coaches. Alyssa’s strong sense of ethics has created the role model she has become at Carey. Her insight, embracing nature, and intellectual ability enable her to truly stand tall among her peers.

Commuting to work via train is exasperating and expensive—add on the stress of parking and the threat of tickets, it becomes madness.

 

“There’s a lot of parking if you get here early enough,” commuter Michelle Vernant said. “If you think you’re getting a spot after 8:30 a.m., think again.”

 

At the New Hyde Park Train Station, there are 340 commuter parking spaces that line the train station from New Hyde Park Road to Covert Avenue.

Despite a disappointing playoff loss against the Wantagh Warriors, Sewanhaka Indians Head Coach George Kasimatis, is pleased with his football team’s season. 

“I’m proud of my team,” he said. “But you are never satisfied unless you win the whole thing.”

 

The Indians faced a big challenge this year, moving up into Conference II left them as the new kids on the block, unfamiliar with the teams they would be going against. 

Kasimatis will have a tall task next year replacing graduating seniors, which made up most of his starting lineup. Kasimatis said most of the offensive line, such as Danny Gianotti, Adrian Gonzalez and Louis Segarra III, and the defensive line, such as Justin Alexandre, Peter LaTorre and Peter Militano are seniors, many of which have started multiple years for him. 

The fifth seeded Sewanhaka Indians traveled to Wantagh to take on the fourth seeded Wantagh Warriors on Friday, Nov. 7 for its opening playoff game. 

 

The Indians opened the game sluggish on offense, and were held in check throughout the first quarter. The Indians defense did its best to keep the team within striking distance, but field position form shaky special teams play, put them in a difficult position. 

 

Warriors running back Dylan Beckwith, was able to punch in a 15-yard touchdown run, to give the Warriors a one score lead after the first quarter.
