The girls’ varsity tennis team at Syosset High School brought in another impressive win for the season, its fourth consecutive Long Island Championship win. The team defeated Half Hollow Hills East 7-0 during the Thursday, Nov. 15 game.
The Syosset Braves 10-year-old football team recently won the Super Bowl Championship Game against the Bellmore Braves with a final score of 20 to 12. The team was led by Quarterback Jack Fine, while players John Harris (two touchdowns) and Thomas Dolciotto (one touchdown) helped clinch the win. This victory was made possible by the hard work the players put into each practice, led by Lead Coach Craig Fine, and coaches Tom Dolciotto, Joe Gangi, Joe Terino and Ely Izarkson. The team would also like to thank Tina Mourelatos, the “team mom.”
Football players at H.B. Thompson Middle School in Syosset were treated to a special guest recently when Ottis Jerome “OJ” Anderson, former player with the New York Giants and St. Louis Cardinals, stopped by the school to discuss the importance of hard work, dedication and teamwork with the students.
One of the electives that Jericho students can choose in the physical education curriculum is Tai Chi, which is a slow motion, meditative physical art for health, relaxation, and self defense. Michael Pekor, who has over 20 years experience in Tai Chi, teaches the class.
Activities include Tai Chi form practice, push hands practice (partner work) and Tai Chi sword (form and partner work.) Students will learn to move mindfully, stretch and strengthen the entire body, and become familiar with the Tai Chi approach to self-defense.
The Jericho Girls Varsity Volleyball team supported Breast Cancer Awareness month in October by holding their annual Dig Pink volleyball game. The players made posters and baked and sold cupcakes, brownies and banana bread. The team raised $140. Pictured, a player spiked the ball during the game.
The 5th Annual Grillo & Associates Blazing Trails 4 Autism 4 Mile Run was almost a brand new race: it was a new community (North Bellmore/North Merrick) with a new school, the Nassau BOCES Children’s Readiness Center, and a new flat course through some very nice local streets.
What didn’t change were the high quality hoodies given out for every entrant and volunteer, an array of past-race refreshments, quick and accurate results courtesy of JMS Racing Services, and a generous raffle highlighted by a Beach Bike courtesy of South Shore Bicycle and Fitness.
Twenty-four-year-old Conor Shelley of Rockville Centre outlasted a pack of six other top competitors to repeat as the top finisher in the 2012 Oyster Bay Town Supervisor’s 5 Kilometer Run on Oct. 13. Shelley scored in 15:16 as the top seven finishers crossed the finish line in the Oyster Bay Townsend Square parking lot within 17 seconds of each other.
Top honors in the women’s division went to 27-year-old Jodie Robertson of Melville in 17:16, holding off runner-up Karen Roa of Port Jefferson by six seconds. Indicative of the overall strength of the field, the first 16 finishers broke the 18-minute mark on what is not an easy course, and 38 finishers broke the 20-minute mark. A total of 634 runners and walkers finished the event, 50 more than in 2011.
The three Syosset Cyclones teams in the travel division of SYAC Girls Softball roared into the second half of their fall season with games the weekend of Oct. 13-14, following a Columbus Day break.
The U9 Cyclones, a team that held their first practice two months ago, upped their record in the Rocky Pacent League to 3-2 on Saturday, Oct. 13. On the last play of a seesaw game at Syosset-Woodbury Park, pitcher Sydney Nadel made a diving catch of a pop fly to hold onto a 13-12 win over the Lady Cobras of Roslyn.
On Saturday, Oct. 13, “lucky 13,” the Jericho Jayhawks Varsity Football Team took to the gridiron to play the team from Great Neck South (GNS) to stay in playoff contention in the Nassau V division, after coming off another win against Great Neck North.
GNS started the game with a failed onside kickoff attempt where the JayHawks recovered the ball and started their first offensive possession close to midfield. Ian Green, still nursing a thumb injury on his throwing hand, dropped back for a pass on first down that was intercepted by GNS. The Jericho sidelines showed little concern as the defense ran onto the field and stopped GNS.
