From the start of this year’s season, the Friends Academy Field Hockey team has had just one goal – to win the sought-after Long Island Championship. Bested four years in a row, the Quakers cannot only check off that accomplishment, but now look to a new goal – the State Championships.
In early fall, the road to the NY State Championship seemed like a long one as this Cinderella team logged its slowest start in years with a 0-5 record. “The girls knew that with hard work, patience and determination, things would turn around,” said Coach Christine Botti.
The Glen Cove Midget Red defeated Levittown 39-26 to win the Conference Championship game and proceed to the “Super Bowl” against Plainedge on Nov. 27.
The Cardinals played their best game of the season in this second round playoff game on the road at Levittown. The Cardinals’ offense, led by Forrest Demetri(QB), struck early on the opening drive which set the stage for their offensive dominance the rest of the game. Dominick Genzale(RB) was on fire all game, running for 4 touchdowns behind an offensive line led by Lorenzo Recine and Kevin Napier, who dominated Levittown at the line of scrimmage. Mario Fischetti (RB) added 2 long touchdown runs, and Gianni Aboulehassan (FB) pounded Levittown’s defense on the ground.
The Girls Varsity Tennis Team completed this 2011 season as Conference IIIA’s Division Champions. What an exciting time it was! At the same time, a bittersweet one, since 11 members of the team are seniors and will be off to college next year.
Glen Cove finished the season with a 9-3 record. As the #1 seed, Glen Cove’s playoff game was against Conference IIIB’s Carle Place. Carle Place was really on their game and was victorious. Still, Glen Cove should be proud of their first-place finish, since it has been more than 15 years since Glen Cove has achieved that level of success.

The North Shore Junior Varsity boys soccer team finished off their season with a promising record of 6-4-1. They started out with a new coach, Kevin Carpenter, and new players who all contributed to the team’s success.
The team started practicing vigorously in late August, and through their practice came great success. The players started off with the basics, and eventually worked their way up to a higher level, increasing their skill level each day. The three captains, Doug Manouge, Connor Costello and Logan Kuperferman, helped to organize the practices and make the practice experience better for the whole team. With enough practices, the team was comfortable playing with each other and were ready to play in games.

Glen Floors played Downtown Café on a rainy Friday night. Everyone was excited to play under the bright stadium lights as it was Division 1B’s first night game. Downtown Café scored the first goal of the game surprising Glen Floors. Glen Floors came back with a goal by John Michael Ktistakis from the midfield. Both teams appeared evenly matched and kept the ball moving back and forth from offense to defense. Great defense was played by Ktistakis, Gino Gallizzi and Noah Kopetic who repeatedly tried to stop Downtown Cafe’s fastest player. Glen Floors succeeded in scoring two other goals by Christopher Gielbeda. Skillful passing by Matthew Basil and Noah Capps assisted Gielbeda with scoring. The Glen Floors boys hustled the entire evening and were able to prevail with a 1-goal lead by the end of the game. Great job Glen Floors!
The Glen Cove Pee Wee Cardinals hosted the Seaford Broncos for a 9 a.m. game. It was their toughest battle to date on the coldest day of the season. They ended the game in their first tie with a score of 18-18.
Seaford started the scoring but the Cardinals quickly answered back with a 65-yard touchdown by Joseph Johnson. The extra point attempt was no good.
Students, alumni, families, and friends gathered under the lights to celebrate Homecoming 2011 and show their support for their Big Red Varsity Football team.
The festivities began with the traditional school Pep Rally Friday afternoon at Glen Cove High School. Unlike past years, the 2011 Pep Rally was special. In recognition for winning the Summer Stars program, MSG Varsity provided several fun stations to make it a true party experience for students. A Mr. Softee truck served unlimited ice cream; an antique popcorn stand kept appetites at bay; photo and face painting tents provided amusement; a disc jockey with full sound system brought the audience to their feet and kept the gymnasium rocking; and water cooler tubs kept everyone refreshed for a full slate of school spirit, fanfare and lots of cheering.
The Glen Cove Pee Wee Cardinals are on fire, traveling to Bethpage and beating the Eagles 19-7.
They started off strong and scored early with a touchdown by Richard Perez. The extra point was scored by Madison Patino.
Defense was tough and held the Eagles to no yards gained. On the first defensive play of the game, David Berlin sacked the quarterback. This would set the tone of the game with Berlin having numerous sacks and tackles, and defense playing hard all game.
