The MacArthur Lady Generals Junior Varsity Basketball Team is in the midst of another great season, currently holding an overall record of 11-1 going into the midterm break. While the Generals are studying hard for their tests and focusing on the “student” part of student-athlete, they are also working hard on the court in practices, eager to finish out a successful season by winning their last four games.
The Island Trees Varsity Football team had a successful 2009 season. The Bulldogs compiled a record of 5-3, earning them a top-four playoff seed. For the first time since the 1960s, the football team would host a first round playoff game against the Floral Park Knights. Although the Bulldogs lost in overtime, 27-24, the players never gave up and left everything they had on the field. As coaches, we could not ask for anything more. The players were disappointed, especially the seniors, but this year’s team helped put Island Trees Football back on the map.

This means that girls at Division Avenue were scheduled to play the six best teams in their class.
