After the last few years in county conference A1, the Lady Dragons of Division Avenue High School find themselves in conference A3. This season the Blue Dragons have concentrated on trying to rebuild a team that lost many fine players to graduation the last two years. Division finds themselves in the middle of the pack in conference A2 halfway through the season with a 2-2-2 record.
Leading the way for the Lady Dragons is a small but solid group of seniors. Anchoring a very stingy defense is Kim Beattie and Miranda Pedroza. Both girls play the outside defender positions. Suring up a talented Midfield is Alyssa Barbosa, Michelle Pedreros, and Ariana Weingrad. Weingrad plans to play college soccer next season at the University of Bridgeport.

Despite the national media attention about Ebola in recent weeks, there is one virus that is actually affecting Long Islanders, Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68), with one of the first cases identified in North Hempstead on Sept. 18 and a recent case on Oct. 15 in Suffolk County, which school officials called for the closing of school, as a health precaution.
The Levittown School District has been vigilant with the increase of cases in general. “We are continuing to implement the precautions provided by the health department and the CDC,” said Levittown School District Assistant Superintendent for Administration and Personnel Darlene Rhatigan. “We are also reminding students and staff to be mindful of the importance of proper hygiene including frequent hand washing.”
