Mike Escobar Wins Prestigious Kessinich Scholarship

Hill and Escobar Shine in Senior All-Star Game

The end of the year turned out to be a good one for the Mineola football program as senior quarterback Mike Escobar won the prestigious Roy Kessinich Memorial Scholarship. This award is presented to an All-County Nassau football player that excels in three different sports and at a high academic level.

In my 31 years covering 53 varsity seasons, Escobar has been one of the best all around student athletes I have ever coached. As captain of my team, he was a tremendous leader. In all my years coaching, I have never had a young man play quarterback and inside linebacker. Not only was Mike playing quarterback but we instituted a whole new “no huddle” spread offense this year that was not easy to learn in one year.

Mustangs Football Team Looks to Next Season

Written by Nick Palma Friday, 04 December 2009 00:00

The 2009 varsity football season began with great expectations. With several returning seniors and an athletic group of players, the Mustangs looked to take their season deep into November playoffs. Coach Dan Guido infused a new offense to fully utilize the talents of several skilled position players and after a summer where the team conditioned and prepared for the season there was reason for optimism. This early optimism gave way to a disappointing season for the Mineola Mustang football team as they finished the year with a 3-5 record, missing the playoffs.


Girls 8th Grade Off to 6-0 Start

Friday, 27 November 2009 00:00

The Corpus Christi girls basketball team is off to a 6-0 start and first place with a two-game lead. This is a pleasant surprise to many as the team is playing in the eighth grade division with only seven eighth graders and five seventh graders. The offense is being directed at point guard by Sarah Rudolph, Marissa Paganelli and Meaghan Carr. The low post scoring is being controlled by Charlotte Renker, Emily Carboine, Ashley Backford, Sabrina Ribiero and Gabrielle Jurksas. Excellent defense and timely baskets are being provided by Madeline Dee, Marjorie Prophete, Katie Barnwell and Kelly Behan. The team heads into the second half of the season clicking on all cylinders. The girls should be very proud of themselves as two teams from last year were combined into one. The coaches, Colleen Carboine and Tom Renker, are impressed by the way the girls have played so unselfishly since the start of the season. One parent stated, “It looks like they have been playing together all along.”

The excitement is in the air as the girls come back from a two-week hiatus and look forward to continuing where they left off. All 8th grade teams will have to be very aware of the Lady Lions, as they look to roar on to the rest of the season.
