The North Shore High School wrestling team had an outstanding performance at this year’s Charles McCullough Annual Holiday wrestling tournament at Glen Cove. Junior Hunter Sharf took home the 126-pound championship after defeating his Garden City opponent 6 to 5 in a tight finals match. At 170 pounds, senior Dan Grabher outscored his three opponents a combined 39 to 4 total points to walk though to another championship. Dan won this tournament last year at 160 pounds and has placed in it every year since seventh grade.
At 120 pounds, sophomore Tristain Vitale battled for his first medal taking second place. Teammate Wil Grogan, a 220-pound senior, also took home his first medal placing second. Senior Wil Blackburn wrestled hard at 160 pounds. His mettle was tested in the semis in a tight semifinals match that he lost 5-4 and went to four overtimes. Unbroken, he returned to win his third match of the day and take third place. Junior Brandon Sirlion placed at his first tournament at 182 taking home the fourth place trophy. Congratulations to all the wrestlers.

For the fourth time in the past five years, Waldorf’s Varsity Boys Soccer Team traveled on Friday, Oct, 26 – just before Hurricane Sandy hit the region – to Locust Valley’s Portledge School, (a neutral site), in order to play in the IPPSAL Boys Soccer Championships. This year’s opponent was Lawrence Woodmere Academy (LWA) who split the regular season games with Waldorf, each earning a win and suffering a loss.
Playing on a 90-foot field for the first time and playing up an age level at 13-U did not slow down the Glen Cove Comanchees Travel Baseball team’s winning ways this fall.
After a great fall season record in the Nassau County League, the Comanchees received a bye in the first round of the playoffs. Their first playoff opponent was a tough Long Island Indians squad. The Comanchees bats were on fire and it turned out to be a one-sided slugfest. The hitting stars were Thomas Paulich (four-for-four with three runs scored and two RBIs, including four stolen bases), Peter Nikolis (two hits and two RBIs) stealing home twice, John Luzynski (two hits, two runs, one RBI) and Brian Wright (double, four RBIs). Thomas Mavros picked up the win, pitching four innings, allowing no hits and only one run.
Glen Cove Boys’ JV Basketball team started their season on Nov. 30 against their rival, Locust Valley. Glen Cove won 60-33. This win was a result of a full team effort. Adrian Berisha and Artan Berisha led the team in scoring in the first half. Excellent team play continued in the third quarter. Glen Cove held Locust Valley to only four points in the third quarter.
In the fourth quarter the Big Red continued their excellent defense with multiple players contributing. Joshua Martin and Corey Dinkins had two steals each in the fourth quarter to seal the win for Glen Cove. David Duda had eight rebounds and two blocks. Artan Berisha finished with a team high 13 points and Adrian Berisha had 12 points. Elijah Robinsion, William Beglin, Steve Ernest, Michael Payton, Manny Sican, Andres Sican, Elijah Ambles, Gabe Stone and Khalil Zachary were also key players in the win displaying great hustle off the bench.
Hurricane Sandy did cause a lot of damage in the Glen Cove area, but it did not stop the Glen Cove Junior Soccer League’s end of the season finale, just merely postponed it by a week.
Traditionally, the soccer league would end the season with a day-long event called Soccerfest, filled with many games, a BBQ and trophy presentations to the kids. Due to the hurricane, the Glen Cove Junior Soccer League Board came up with a different approach for this year. Soccerfest became “Lift Our Community Spirits Day” to help people try to take their mind off the recent hurricane. The whole community of Glen Cove was invited down to a free BBQ and also to watch some exciting soccer from our kids. Donations were accepted to help those in need and there were donations from private individuals to help make the BBQ a success. All the kids received trophies and by the smiles on everyone’s faces, the day was a total success.
Ken Pilla, Barbara Greenfield, Darcy Belyea and the rest of the board are to be commended for a job well done. Kudos go out to Mayor Suozzi and the council for their continuous support and most importantly, the Glen Cove residents. The spirit of the day well exemplified league founder Marco Malusa’s principles regarding having a soccer league in Glen Cove.
