Insingo Helps Holy Trinity To Winning Ways

Holy Trinity High School Junior Kristina Insingo of Floral Park recently began her winning year with the CHSAA State championship win in the weight throw and the CHSAA & NSCHSAA Championship wins in the shot put. She also set a new school record in both events and broke the NSCHSAA league record in the shot put.

Insingo also recently attended the Millrose Games for the weight throw event.

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.

County sponsors Narcan training at high school

Long Island communities are waging a war against prescription drug abuse and a rampant heroin epidemic. The county launched a free public training program in 2012 to teach ordinary citizens the signs of an overdose and how to reverse its effects using a drug called Narcan.

Garden City High School hosted one of these training events on Oct. 9 as a packed auditorium of parents and community members gathered to learn the skills needed to potentially save a life. Floral Park will host the event in December.

Despite the national media attention about Ebola in recent weeks, there is one virus that is actually affecting Long Islanders, Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68), with one of the first cases identified in North Hempstead on Sept. 18 and a recent case on Oct. 15 in Suffolk County, which school officials called for the closing of school, as a health precaution.

Dr. Charles Schleien, chairman of the department of pediatrics at Cohen Children’s Medical Center, said that although the enterovirus is still active, cases are dwindling on Long Island. According to Schleien, approximately 500 cases have been reported this season of enterovirus, at Cohen’s Children Medical Center, with two to six patients being admitted per day.
