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.
For his brilliant work in his first year as Roslyn coach, Mike Corcoran was named Coach of The Year in the conference. With many stars returning next year, including quarterback Adam Combs and star runner, Thomas Davis, the Bulldogs look to be a force in Conference V football for years to come.
The football team wasn’t the only squad to excel. The boys’ varsity soccer and volleyball team both advanced to their respective conference semifinals. The girls’ tennis team also made the playoffs. The entire boys’ cross-country team and several members of the girls’ team qualified to run in the county championship/state qualifier.
On top of all this, Bulldog athletes also showed a volunteering side. Several dozen student athletes helped out at the Burning Bases Kickball Fest West, a round-robin tournament that attracted more than 150 special needs students from 11 Nassau County school districts on Monday, Nov. 4.
