The 2013-2014 college basketball season is underway and Roslyn resident George Beamon is off to a scorching start, as he makes his claim as one of the top scoring guards in the country.
Beamon, a senior at Manhattan College has led the Jaspers to a 4-2 record. He was the leading scorer in Manhattan’s first five games, tallying 24 points in the win against LaSalle, 28 points in a tight 71-70 over Columbia, 34 points in a loss against George Washington, and 24 points in both a win over Illinois State and a loss to Fordham.
Beamon was also a team leader in rebounds in the games against Columbia, George Washington and Fordham.
Buckley Country Day School upper school students from Roslyn earned top honors at the end of this fall’s interscholastic soccer season. Roslyn athletes pictured from left to right, are: Ansh Amin, Most Valuable Player, boys’ fifth and sixth grade Blue team; Kenneth Silver, Most Improved Player, boys’ fifth and sixth grade Blue team; and Eleni Vasiliades, Bulldog Spirit Award, girls’ fifth and sixth grade Blue team.
Now that the Roslyn Bulldogs football season is over, let’s review some final numbers for that championship season.
All year long, the Bulldogs’ explosive offense relied on the heroics of quarterback Adam Combs, plus running backs Thomas Davis, Alex Epprecht and Chris Snipes and wide receiver Isaiah Hunter.
On the ground, Davis had 626 yards on 84 carries, while Snipes was close behind with 558 yards on 83 attempts. Senior star Alex Epprecht pitched in with 290 yards on 35 carries, while Combs, a threat both running and passing had 66 yards on 20 rushes. Davis and Epprecht had four touchdowns, while Snipes hit pay dirt three times.
It’s not just the Roslyn High School football team that had a great year this past fall,
The Roslyn Marching Bulldogs continued to add to their reputation as one of the top high school bands in the New York metropolitan area.
Last year, the Roslyn Blue Devils won the National Junior Baseball League age 13 Central Divisional Championship. This year, under the direction of head coach, Brian Meyerson, the graduated into the 14-year old division. And they ended the season with the same championship result.
First, it was the basketball squad that had a winning year and now the Roslyn High School football team has had their own championship season.
As noted in last week’s issue, the Bulldogs topped Port Washington in an exciting Conference V playoff game, 15-14. According to Roslyn High School athletic department officials, the win made Roslyn the “top team” in the conference. But since they won the game and did so on the road and in comeback fashion, the Bulldogs have earned every right to be hailed as champions of the conference.
Roslyn tennis star Dawn Bernstein has had a superlative year on the courts. As team captain, she led a Glen Cove-based team to the United States Tennis Association’s (USTA) Eastern Section championships. From there, the team advanced to the national championships, held last month in Tucson, Ariz.
The team won the Eastern Section title at a tournament in Schenectady, NY. In Tucson, the Glen Cove squad had a 2-1 team record, but only a 7-8 individual record as a team from the La Habra Tennis Center in southern California took the national title.
