The Roslyn High School girls’ volleyball team is still playing winning ball in Conference IV play, even though they have dropped off the pace in recent play.
After defeating Plainview JFK, 7-2 on April 24, the Lady Bulldogs lost to both Seaford and Mepham, while taking an exciting two overtime win over archrival Jericho, 13-12. Roslyn’s win over Jericho was a home game, the two defeats were tough losses on the road. In the loss to Seaford, Allison Schneider had six goals, while Julia Saltzman came up with 12 saves in a losing effort. Saltzman had 10 saves in a close 12-11 loss to Mepham, while Allison Schneider led the scoring attack with five goals.
In the win over Jericho, the sister team of Reilly and Mackenzie Liotta led the Lady Bulldogs to victory. Reilly’s unassisted goal in the second overtime proved to be the winning tally. Meanwhile, Mackenzie had nine saves as the Roslyn goalie. Allison Schneider, once again, was the leading scorer with three goals. Nicole Korn and Lexi Singer had two goals each.
Later this month, the Lady Bulldogs will take on Wheatley and MacArthur as they hope to leapfrog into championship contention in conference play.

Howard Kroplick was just settling in to his new position as North Hempstead’s town historian in April of 2012 when a phone call from a resident who found an old headstone led him into a comprehensive study of all 28 cemeteries within
the town’s boundaries.
Kroplick, an East Hills resident for 29 years, serves in the unpaid role as an advisor to the North Hempstead board, out of his longtime love of history. His exhaustive study of the area’s cemeteries has helped him complete a history of
North Hempstead that will be published in January, which will coincide with the 400-year anniversary of the discovery of Long Island, by Dutch explorer Adriaen Block. It was Block, according to Kroplick, who first identified Long Island as an actual island, not a peninsula as many believed back then. The 128-page book from Arcadia Publishing is the first ever written about North Hempstead.

For the time being, much of the Roslyn area is without representation on the Town of North Hempstead council. Recently, Thomas K. Dwyer, who has represented Roslyn on that body since 2002, announced that he would step down from the board while he is in negotiations with a Manhattan-based consulting firm.
Dwyer, who is the chief operating officer of Syosset-based American Land Services, would not identify the firm he is talking to, but he said that the new job would represent a conflict of interest with his work on the town board.
