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.
Congratulations to Westbury athletes Michael Esposito, Eileen Harris, Brett Harris, and Michael Going, each of whom won awards in Race # 1 of the Jonas Chiropractic Run Nassau Series co-hosted by Nassau County and the Greater Long Island Running Club.
Michael Esposito, age 15, took home the second place award in the 15-19 age group with a time of 23 minutes, 6 seconds. Eileen Harris, age 42, earned the first place award in the women’s 40-44 age group. She completed the race with her 45 year old husband, Brett Harris, who was the third place award winner in the men’s 45-49 age group. Michael Going, age 41, scored third place honors in the 40-44 age group with a time of 20 minutes, 51 seconds.
The picturesque idea of standing peacefully in a gentle stream, the wind in your hair and the gentle caress of nature about you might sound like nothing more than a fantasy for those who have grown accustomed to the hustle and bustle of everyday life in the suburbs. However, for Tom McCoy, this ideal often becomes a reality through the sport of fly fishing.
McCoy, author of How to Fly Fish for Trout: The First Book to Read, was born and raised in Westbury, and spent the days of his youth fishing in Whitney Pond and The Meadow Brook. McCoy first encountered trout back in 1957 in the East Durham area of New York’s Catskills, otherwise known as the “Irish Alps,” he said.
The Carle Place Board of Education, along with special guest New York State Senator Jack Martins, recognized the Carle Place High School boys varsity soccer team as the 2013 New York State Class B champions at their Jan. 23 meeting. Parents and team supporters looked on as Board President Barry Dennis introduced coach Allen Foraker, who began the evening with a few sentiments congratulating the athletes.
“I know you have heard me speak about this team many times before, but I want to once again thank everyone for the tremendous support,” said Foraker. “It has been an incredible experience.”
The Westbury Recreation Department’s Okinawan Karate program, taught by Sensei John Power, had its formal testing and holiday party recently. Twenty students that met the attendance requirement and proficiency required to advance to the next belt level were tested. The following students advanced to the next belt level:
Jr. GoDan Black belt—Black w/green stripe — Christina and Tyler Bonaparte
Clouds covered the sky above Carle Place High School this past Friday night, when the boys’ junior varsity team defeated East Rockaway 55-42, with a performance that resembled a torrential downpour of shots from beyond the arc. The highlight of the night was the 11 three-point shots made by seven players in Coach Conor Reardon’s squad. This was one of the Frogs highest scoring games of the winter season.
Carle Place had a slow but auspicious start with a 10-4 lead at the end of the first quarter. Nate Armstrong scored 12 points in the first half to keep Carle Place in a comfortable lead above East Rockaway. At halftime, the Frogs were ahead 22-15.
The Town of North Hempstead will be holding a Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Basketball tournament at the North Hempstead “Yes We Can” Community Center from Saturday, Jan.18 through Monday, Jan. 20.
“This tournament is a wonderful way of gathering the community together and promoting a healthy, active lifestyle,” said Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth.
Despite a strong defense in the first half, the Westbury girls basketball team was not able to hold off Garden City’s star player, junior Sam Auricchio, at last Tuesday’s game. The team fought hard, but fell to Garden City 61-41 at the away game at Garden City High School.
Auricchio scored 26 of her 37 points in the second half, which allowed the Trojans to pull away from the Dragons. She wasted no time in hitting a three pointer immediately following halftime, and followed that up with a layup off of a steal to put the Trojans up by nine. They did not allow the Dragons to get any closer than that for the remainder of the game.
Congratulations to Carle Place seniors Maria Hyland and Jack DiFrisco for receiving the Nassau Zone of New York State Association of Health, Physical Education and Dance Outstanding Physical Education Student Award for 2013-2014.
Hyland demonstrates leadership qualities and has an excellent rapport with her teachers and peers. She serves as a role model for her classmates, guiding other students and taking initiative. She exemplifies sportsmanship and good character. DiFrisco is self-motivated, with an outstanding work ethic and always gives 100 percent in all class activities. His willingness to always work with and assist his peers on a continual basis makes him an outstanding role model.
The students were honored for their accomplishments recently at a dinner at the Crest Hollow Country Club.
When Dylan Klein was six years old, he was cut from the Carle Place travel team.
“I don’t know if it was because I wasn’t good enough or what it was,” he says.
But like all great athletes, Klein didn’t give up. Instead, he tried out for the East Meadow travel team and made the “A” team.
