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.
On Aug. 13 the U15 North Shore Vikings swept the South Shore Monarchs for a best 2 out of 3 Championship Series at North Shore High School. The win, like the season was a team effort. Pitching was fantastic, hitting was consistent and the defense was superb! The Vikings started playing travel baseball when they were 8-years-old and have had winning seasons since then. But what makes them a truly remarkable team is they started as a group of boys that were friends and have been together for the past 7 years. They have had some comings and goings over the years and with each addition brings another teammate that is a friend and most often than not a North Shore athlete! They will be fun to watch up at the high school and we look forward to future winning seasons! To see a recap of the Championship game, Leslie Schwartz, baseball mom and avid baseball fan put together a video which can be found on http://youtube/3LElpv7-lBs or under North Shore Travel Baseball on youtube.

All summer, the Glen Cove High School’s Booster Club has been sponsoring the construction of a new concession stand at the high school football field. A long time in planning, the building of the new concession stand is moving forward. Volunteer parents have been donating their time and energy to labor on the construction. Meeting on Saturday mornings all summer, parents are building the structure from the ground up.
High school rugby on Long Island is a spring sport, played on a football-sized field. A game of rugby typically lasts 60 minutes and all athletes play offense and defense and each player on the field is expected to run like a wide receiver, kick like a punter, tackle like a defensive back, pass like a quarterback and score touchdowns like a running back.
On Aug. 4, the 10 and under Glen Cove Yankees Travel Team won the HBQVB Nick Lomangino Tournament in Queens, defeating LM Jacks from Astoria.
On Aug. 13, the LI Yankees (whose home field is Portledge School in Locust Valley), played the Long Island Ducks Green in the Semifinals of the Boys of Summer (BOS) 13U Playoffs. This game would prove to be a real pitchers’ duel behind the strong pitching of Yankee pitcher Zachary Kleinwaks who threw a complete game three hitter, and a skilled Ducks’ pitcher Frank Merlino, who gave up 5 hits in 7 innings.
There were two important plays in the game that would prove to change the game’s outcome. In the first inning, the second batter for the Ducks Paul McGee walked his way on base. Then his teammate Brendan Wright hit a ball over the head of Yankees left fielder Grant Elgarten. Elgarten ran quickly to retrieve the ball and threw it to the cutoff Nick Lucchese. With screams from both sides, McGee headed for home. Lucchese made a strong throw to the plate where dirt was flying as Yankee catcher Straton Podaras received the ball and applied the tag to McGee, for the final out of the inning.
