The North Shore HS Varsity cross-country team has been on the radar for some time now. They have won the county championship for 5 consecutive years, and there doesn’t appear to to be an end in sight. So far this season they have attained a perfect 8-0 record and are currently ranked in the top 5 in the United States. In addition they are the defending Class A New York State Champions. This was the first state championship of any kind for the North Shore School District. This past week was a display of the teams poetry in motion as they placed 1-9 in the varsity race and 1-6 in the Junior Varsity races which indicates not only do they have the talent, but the depth as well. Not to be outdone was the middle school program who took 12 of the first 13 places in their first competition of the season. Some of the returning stars include Seniors Samantha Nadel and Brianna Nerud. Nadel won the famed Millrose Games mile at Madison Square Garden last winter, and holds the NYS 5k indoor record at 16:59. Nerud is coming off her best season to date by setting a new NYS record in the steeplechase and placing 7th in the world in France this past summer. Other members include All-County performers Juniors Jessica Donohue and Elizabeth Caldwell. Along with Nadel and Nerud they are the foundation for the teams success. Newcomers and bright young stars include Sophomore Olivia Statile, Freshman Stacie Nadel, and eight-grader Monica Morra.
The Glen Cove Pee Wee Cardinals hosted the Farmingdale Titans in their homecoming game, Sunday, Oct 9 at 9 a.m. at City Stadium. They were victorious with a score of 33-7.
The Cardinals started the game on defense, but quickly had a turnover on a Farmingdale fumble that was recovered by Cayden Burnett.
After a 10-yard run up the middle by Madison Patino, Jesse Barnes, Jr. ran 25 yards for a touchdown. The extra point attempt was no good.
Until 2009, North Shore High School never had its own swim team. Many people had swum independently but NSHS never received more than three interested people each year, so they were unable to make an official team. Then, in 2009, two sophomores, a freshman and an eighth-grader came together and proposed the idea to the athletic board. All they wanted was a meet schedule; all four girls could swim on their own club team, whether it was Long Island Express or LIAC for practices and then go to different schools to compete. North Shore’s athletic board accepted the idea and the North Shore High School Swim Team was finally created.
The Glen Cove High School Big Red Football Team won its home opener on Saturday in a thrilling come from behind game with the Sewanhaka Indians. The Big Red would score 21 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to steal the victory 35-28, in front of a raucous crowd on Jr. Football and Cheerleading Day.
The day was set up by the school district’s Athletic Committee to celebrate the 54 years of Glen Cove Jr. Football and Cheerleading. Members of the High School Cheerleading Squad were joined by their younger counterparts from the Jr. Cheerleaders and Jr. Football players and coaches to form a tunnel to welcome the Big Red onto the field.
The Glen Cove Chemists Division 3 Girls Soccer team kicked off the soccer season on Saturday, Sept. 17, with cheers, whistles and horns as they passed their sponsor’s location on School Street during the annual soccer parade. Dressed in bright purple jerseys, the team faced the Mercurio DDS team in the season opener followed by a game with Casa Design on Monday. In both contests play was exceptional, and there were no better players for the Chemists than Lily Pepperdine and Jane Maleady who not only scored goals, but also controlled the offense and the defense. Ruth Villatoro, Douaa Ahmed and Lexi Balestrieri were sensational as goal keepers, allowing only 2 goals in 100 minutes of play. Julie Fine was a force to be reckoned with on defense, single handedly stopping several charges made by the opposition. Sarah Israel and Katherine Villatoro were an awesome pairing for the Chemists, passing the ball up the field keeping the opposition on their heels. Most importantly, the girls in purple all had a great time and exhibited stellar teamwork!
The Glen Cove Pee Wee Cardinals are off to a good start with a record of 2 and 0 in the first two weeks of play.
On Sunday, Sept. 11, they traveled to Valley Stream for a noon game.
They started off strong and scored on their first offensive drive with a touchdown by Joseph Johnson. The extra point was scored by Madison Patino. Also having yards gained were Richard Perez and quarterback Jesse Barnes.
On Saturday, Sept. 17, Glen Cove’s youngest fishermen and women turned out for the annual Mayor’s Snapper Derby at Pryibil Beach Pier. On a windy afternoon a total of 85 children and their parents joined Mayor Suozzi for a day of fishing. The snappers were plentiful with over 120 fish reeled in.
The City of Glen Cove extends appreciation to the enthusiastic volunteers from the Glen Cove Angler’s Club, the Matinecock Rod and Gun Club and Chairman Tom Manzione for organizing this annual event.
The North Shore Football team lost a heartbreaker in the season opener to Malvern High School. The day started off with a dignified ceremony with both teams lined up in unity to honor the victims of Sept. 11. A moment of silence followed the National Anthem capped off by a powerful rendition of Taps, performed by two members of the North Shore music department.
