Manhasset’s Varsity and Novice high school crew teams opened their spring “sprint racing” season at the Manny Flick/Horvat Regatta in early April. As part of the Philadelphia Classic Regatta Series, the annual series of Manny Flick races brings in schools from Maryland, Virginia, New Jersey, and Connecticut, among other states in the region.
Head Coach Hugo Guardado-Henriquez reported that, “Eight of Manhasset’s 16 boats that competed in the 1,500-meter races on the Schuylkill River had first-place finishes to win their races, and the team also posted six second-place finishes.” He added that, “Needless to say, our coaching staff is very pleased with the team’s racing results overall and with continued hard work we are on our way to a competitive spring season.”

The Lead The Way Lacrosse Day For Heroes is a two-game shootout between the country’s best high school lacrosse teams, the Chaminade Flyers vs. the Manhasset Indians. The one day event, which last year attracted over 2,000 spectators, recognizes past and present protectors of the flag and honors the life of local hero Sgt. James J. Regan (CHS ‘98), who was killed in action while serving with the 75th Ranger Regiment soldiers. And 100 percent of the proceeds from the day will go directly to the Lead The Way Fund.
When Cold Spring Harbor plays Manhasset it is always a game to watch. On Wednesday, April 4, Cold Spring Harbor (4-2) visited Manhasset (3-1) and Manhasset came away with a respectable victory.
As the sun waned the lights on the field became bright and one of the most unusual things happened. Evan Molloy exited the goal, running purposefully when he crossed midfield. Molloy ran up to about the 40-yard line of the opposing defense and fired a shot on target. The goal was at the 10:11 mark of the game. What a great way to start off the scoring for Manhasset.

DiConza, Patrick Gately, and Julia Southard, and the members of the Girls 1988 New York State Champions Team as new members of the Manhasset Hall of Fame.
An interesting story appeared in my inbox this past week, compliments of Scuttlebutt. It is extreme racing up close and personal. And since the weather has been nice, most likely anyone owning a boat was either frostbiting, or in the boatyard either preparing their boat for the spring or thinking about it. So the story below is just a tease to all you sailor-racers out there… to get your blood flowing a bit faster, and get you motivated to launch your boats. While Manhasset Bay is not the Southern Ocean, it is ours, conveniently located right out our backdoor.
The Church of St. Mary Boys Senior Team captured the 2012 CYO Basketball Senior Championship defeating St. Matthew of Dix Hills 37-32.

Congratulations to Coach John Kiggins Sr., and Michael Broderick, Tom Gorman, Jon Kerby, John Patrick Kiggins, Michael Marciano, Martin Minardi, Patrick Pilch, Jack Salter, Joe Salter and Chris Samson.
Following the earlier and equally stunning news that future Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning would sign as a free agent with the Denver Broncos, Tebow, a Heisman Trophy winner, found himself on the trade block. The Jets swooped in and acquired the lefty, while surrendering two mid-round draft picks. So, what’s the early verdict?
