This past May, Old Bethpage’s Steve Coniglio graduated from Baruch College and concluded a stellar four-year academic and athletic career. The leader of the team finished his career by earning Second Team All-American honors and was named the CUNYAC Student-Athlete of the Year.
It was a fitting end to what was a phenomenal career for Coniglio, who did not begin playing volleyball until his freshman year at Plainview-Old Bethpage John F. Kennedy High School.
“I was always naturally smart and classes came extremely easy to me. But volleyball was a sport that I had to build from scratch,” said the 6’5” Coniglio. “I started with nothing and put blood, sweat and tears into the sport. My All-American, even though it was a second team, was something that I fought for every second I was on a volleyball court and I cherish the acknowledgement very much.”
Plainview-Old Bethpage was well represented at a recent jaunt through a Long Island preserve.
