The Holy Trinity track and field program has given rise to many familiar names in the high school track and field arena – Olympian Shana Cox ’03, Colleen Schmidt
’11 (now running for Duke University) and Caroline Brown ’13 (now running at SUNY Buffalo) and this year, many more students are bringing attention to the school’s program.
The Spring Track and Field season is currently underway and it promises to be an exciting and successful one for the Holy Trinity Titans with a combination of experienced and talented juniors and seniors, along with up-and-coming freshmen and sophomores.

Village Board Trustee Mary-Grace Tomecki spoke on behalf of the Noise Abatement Committee at Tuesday night’s Village Board meeting regarding the proposed helicopter track route put forth by State Senator, Charles Schumer. Changes to the route would affect noise levels in the village and to other communities along the LIRR line.
The North Shore Route is a route currently used by helicopters exiting New York City heliports to locations on the east end of Long Island.
“The current route takes helicopters over the Long Island Sound at an altitude of 2,000 feet and is designed to minimize noise on the residential communities below,” said Tomecki. “A helicopter must arrive at its destination which in the case of the North Shore Route, means it must transition from water to land.”
