Director of Athletics Don Lang proudly announced that two North Shore High School senior athletes signed National Letters of Intent (NLI). A Letter of Intent is a binding agreement between a prospective student-athlete and an institution. Once signed, the institution agrees to provide that student with financial aid (if eligible under the NCAA rules) for one academic year in exchange for that student’s agreement to attend the institution for one academic year. Additionally, all colleges and universities that participate in the NLI program agree to not recruit these student athletes once he or she signs the NLI.
North Shore Director of Athletics Don Lang said, “According to NCAA guidelines, Feb. 1 is the first official day that our track runners can sign their National Letters of Intent. Congratulations go out to Samantha Nadel and Brianna Nerud who have chosen Georgetown and Syracuse University respectively to attend in the fall. They will officially commit to these two universities today.”

He said he has seen all of the team members working hard throughout the season, and that they have been mentally prepared and tough at every meet.
With a record of eight wins and three losses the Glen Cove Girl’s Junior Varsity Basketball team has been surprisingly competitive in every minute of every game thus far in the 2011-12 season. If their strong start is any indication, this year’s team may well be a window into the future of Glen Cove Girls Basketball.
Beginning with their first game 32-27 win over Sewanhaka up until their most recent 55-33 victory over Valley Stream South, one of the more remarkable aspects of this team’s success has been the coalescence of the past, the present and the future of Glen Cove Basketball. The team features four seventh-grade starters at the very beginning of their high school basketball experience and a young, dynamic, hometown hero, first-year coach. While their enthusiasm has been infectious, the impulsivity of the younger players has benefited from being tempered by the consistency of effort and focus of the older, more mature, freshmen and sophomores. Up to this point, the season has been a working combination of trial by fire on the part of the seventh-graders, hard work, perseverance and determination by the ninth- and tenth-graders and a very successful homecoming of sorts for the new coach.
