Bob Phillips Bowls Fifth Perfect Game
Bob Phillips has just bowled his fifth 300, or perfect game at New Cove Lanes in Glen Cove; three of the games were in league competition. Bob's achievement is even more amazing since all five games were bowled after he became legally blind. Bob cannot see the pins but uses the spots at the foul line to adjust direction. Congratulations to a fine bowler!
North Shore High School Vikings Sports
In an epic battle between two great runners, eighth-grader Brianna Welch won the Nassau County County Class B Cross-Country Championship at Bethpage State Park on Saturday. Battling the entire way with Senior Megan Krifchin from Bellmore JFK High School, the runners put on an exciting show for the hundreds in attendance. Even though Welch got out-kicked for the overall Nassau County Title, she placed second out of the 160-runner field earning her the County B championship. What's more, she ran one of the fastest times in course history. As a result of her performance, she automatically qualified for the State Championship this weekend in Queensbury, and the Federation Championship in Wappingers Falls on November 19th.
