The Manhasset Boys Swim Team competed in the Nassau County Swim Championship on Monday, Feb. 11. After a strong Division showing, Manhasset’s swimmers seemed to be peaking at the right time. The Indians had a strong showing of 10 County Qualifiers competing in the days’ event. Their goal was to be competitive with Nassau’s best.
In the meet’s opening event, 200yd Medley Relay, The Manhasset team of Conor Beil, Andrew Chin, Damien Quinn and Alex Chee set a new school record time of 1:43.46 to finish fifth in Nassau County.
Congratulations to the Portledge Girls Ice Hockey team who finished their season as runners-up in the Women’s Ice Hockey League of the Mid Atlantic. Second place is not usually something that satisfies teams who possess a true competitive nature; however, this accomplishment was seen as a positive by the team. Last year the Lady Panther skaters ended with an overall mark of 5 wins and 13 losses, so they were definitely looking for a revival during the 2012-13 campaign.
What: 5K Walk/Run through Manhasset
When: Sunday, April 7 – 9 a.m., start
Who: Everyone welcome to participate
Why: Fundraiser for MHS Crew with 10 percent of funds

On Monday, June 11, Buckley Country Day School held its annual Red and Blue Banquet at which upper school students were recognized for outstanding contributions to their respective spring athletic teams. Spirits ran high as both coaches and competitors recalled highlights from the season. Congratulations to all.
In mid-May, athletes from Manhasset’s Crew Team were among the 5,000 student-athletes who converged on Philadelphia to race in the 86th Annual Stotesbury Cup Regatta, the world’s largest and oldest high school rowing event.
The event featured more than 130 races, with 925 boats and 198 high school and prep school crew teams from the US and Canada competing. Adding to the excitement, 25,000 spectators and fans lined the banks of the Schuylkill River to watch the crews battle it out in 1,500-meter races over two picture-perfect days.
The third annual Munsey Park Women’s Club Fun Run and Fair was a resounding success. On the morning of Saturday, June 9, 250 kids from all over Manhasset ages 2 through 12 gathered at the corner of Kensett and Trumbull Roads in Munsey Park to run or walk the one-mile race in support of the Manhasset SCA’s Project Share. While the top three girls and boys all came in under 7 minutes, there were finishers at every minute mark thereafter. By 9:25 a.m. all of the participants had crossed the finish line. With the weather on their side, event organizers Lisa Avena, Amy Hill and Missy Leder headed to the fair at Polliwog Pond to kick off the post-race activities.
At the fair children had fun in the jumping castle and on the super-slide, played games and won prizes, enjoyed homemade refreshments from the bake-sale table, had their faces painted and created something interesting at the Spin-Art station. Additionally, the Drop-In-The-Box Raffle and Grand Raffle were a big hit. There were great raffle items to be won, including a new bike, an iTouch, Nook and many more items, all donated by supportive community members.
In just a few short weeks (July 5-8), Oakcliff will hold what is becoming an annual Youth Clinegatta for match racing. The target audience is 16 to 23-year-old sailors who want to improve their sailing and match racing skills. Now that the college sloop nationals are a match racing format, this is a great way to prepare yourself and your team for nationals. The format is called a Clinegatta, because it combines two days of clinic with two days of a grade four match race regatta with coaching throughout the whole four days. The event is co-sponsored by North U.
Dave Perry will be coaching this event – the only time this year he will coach at Oakcliff. He is currently the US National Match Race Champion, a title he has held four times, and Rules Advisor for Artemis Racing, the Challenger of Record for the 34th America’s Cup.
The Radio Controlled (R/C) Air Show at the North Hempstead Aerodrome on June 10 exceeded all expectations. Between 200 and 250 spectators and flyers from all over converged on the site for this first annual day of flying, expert demonstration and hands-on teaching.
The weather was perfect – not too hot, winds were calm – a great day for being outdoors. The morning began with open flying by club members showing off their latest creations. Airplanes and helicopters of all types and sizes were flown. Around noon, choreographed flying routines were performed starting with Justin Jee, a 9-year-old flyer from New Jersey who has been astounding spectators since he was 4. Justin flew a 35 percent Pilot-RC Extra 300 with a 107” wingspan and later a 700 sized electric helicopter. He made rolling circles look like child’s play. Mike Krug, a local flyer, wowed the audience with his electric-ducted fan jet which tops out at 180 mph, and his Eurocopter AS350 scale helicopter.
Manhasset’s Crew Team traveled to Saratoga Springs, New York, to race against more than 600 boats and 3,000 rowers who competed in the 2012 New York State Scholastic Rowing Championships in mid-May. Both the boy and girl crews continued the team’s winning tradition in the two-day regatta.
A group of Manhasset girls entered their first soccer tournament recently and did amazingly well. They were placed in the top division of the Under 7 age group in the Commack tournament, which meant they were playing some of the best teams of their age on Long Island.
