The new scoreboard, which has been described as the “best” high school scoreboard in Nassau County, will enable our baseball spectators to follow the score inning by inning, as well as, all of the balls, strikes, and outs throughout the course of the game. Dennis Dunne, elected to the Nassau County legislature in 1997 and who has been an incredible friend to the Island Trees school community for years, facilitated this endeavor for Island Trees High School. In addition, Joseph Belesi, recently elected to serve as a Nassau County legislator in the Island Trees area, was integral in securing the funding for this project.

The Lady Dawg’s track and field team of Island Trees has emerged as a true competitor this spring season, giving the team a spark it hasn’t had in some time. The small team of 22 girls has proven that “It’s not the size of the dog in the fight; it’s the size of the fight in the dog.”
The team has a 6-2-league record, but that does justice for this team. This became obvious recently as the girls took second place despite winning eight of 11 running events.
