St. Mary’s sixth-grade team 7 won the 40th Annual St. Vincent de Paul Basketball tournament with a 41 – 39 win over St. Rose of Lima White of Massapequa. St. Mary’s defeated St. Rose Red in round 1 and bested St. Rose White in overtime in the semi-final. This is the fourth time in four years that this team has won this tournament. The most telling statistic of the tournament was Joseph Mulholland taking six charges in the tournament, three in the final game. Congratulations to: Kelly Quinn, Charlie Young, Jackson Cherry, Alex Racanelli, Chris Glynn, Steven Vlahakis, Duncan Barcelona, Steven Salerno, Jack Hannan, Joseph Mulholland, Louis Perfetto, Timmy Kiggins and Patrick Weber.
St. Mary’s fifth-grade team faced tough opponents in the first round of the St. Raphael’s winter tournament. St. Mary’s went 2-0 with wins against St. Brigid (30-15) and St. William (33-30) and entered the semi-finals as the 3 seed and won against St. Barnabas and that guaranteed the team a spot in the championship game vs. St. William.
It was a nailbiter all the way until the last 20 seconds when St. Mary’s clinched the win and with it, the championship. It was the tough defense and clutch free-throws in the last seconds that sealed the victory for St. Mary’s. The boys who played on the winning team were: Joseph Busch, Luke Bakshandeh, Liam Cash, John Crimmins, Jack Doherty, Cole Gaccione, Jimmy Kelly, Brendan Lane, Brian Mack, Nick Morton, Dylan Shelley, Cole Zaffiro and Tommy Zahn.
Back in 1938, a Mr. Otway Hebron Chalkley was on the cover of Time for its `July 4 edition (price: 15 cents). For many readers, that name has no meaning, but for skippers of the Manhasset Bay One Designs (MBOD), he is known as “Father of the Class.” He changed the name of this one design class from the Junior One Design to its present name and formed the MBO class at Manhasset Bay YC. Ever since then, the MBODs have been a vibrant and social fleet. Considering that these boats are wooden and take tons of upkeep, their long history is quite remarkable.
This past month, the group gathered at the home of Nancy and Lew Lane to celebrate the fun times and award annual trophies. But this being the MBODs, the best part of the evening, besides the tremendous food and libation, were the “ha ha” awarded at the end of the meeting.
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

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.
