The Carle Place High School boys varsity soccer team accomplished the goal the team had set way back in June: win a Nassau county title. All season, the coaching staff preached two words, consistency and focus.
After a long layoff due to Hurricane Sandy, the team was finally able to take the field again and put those two words in motion. The team beat rival Wheatley by the score of 2-1 in the semifinals. In the final, the squad took down Cold Spring Harbor, 4-0. It was a gratifying season in which the team won its first ever Class B county title, and the school’s first county title since winning the Class C crown in 2003-04.
Special thanks to the students, staff and the entire community for their support all season. Players that will be honored at the NCSCA dinner on Dec. 4, include County Finals MVP George Costidis; All Conference players Mike Montello, Adam Cabrera and Rob Posillico; All County Honorable Mention John Guzzo and Guiseppe Altadonna; and All County Dylan Klein and Matt Carr.

Albertson resident and Kellenberg sophomore Gabby Schreib qualified for the Millrose Games in New York City. Schreib qualified as a member of the Sprint Medley Relay along with Danielle Correia, Bridget McNierney, and Jazmine Fray.
The Kellenberg relay’s close second place finish in January’s Millrose Trials has moved them closer to defending the title they won in the same relay at last year’s Millrose Games. Schreib and her teammates time is currently second in the United States for girls track and field performances.
