The Glen Cove Junior Lacrosse Club had 3 games scheduled on Sunday and surprisingly rain was not a factor in any of them! The third- and fourth-graders started the day off with an early morning eye opener against East Meadow. Down by three goals at the start of the second quarter Sal Guastella sliced and diced through the defense to score the first of his two goals in the game. Syzmon Frye added another but it was not enough for the Wee Knights as they lost 7 – 3. Tyler Buehre and Liam Sherwood shared the goalie duties once again and combined for five saves.
Glen Cove High School senior Heather Artinian is the winner of the Nassau County Sports Commission’s Eva Tucci Award, which recognizes a female student-athlete who demonstrates great character, great passion for sports, and is committed to academic excellence.
Born deaf, Heather was raised in a household where her entire family was also deaf. Despite having this common bond with her family, as a fourth-grader she underwent surgery that would allow her to hear and attend a non-deaf school. This decision created controversy so intense that it was documented in an Academy Award-nominated movie.
Eight years ago, a small, relatively unknown track and field meet was introduced at North Shore High School. Originally, there were approximately 10 teams competing, a few officials, some hot dogs and hamburgers, and a lot of fun.
Since that time, this track meet has evolved into an annual event, known by all as the “North Shore Invitational.” As the North Shore Track Program has grown to premier status, so has its very own track meet. Eight years later, a few things have changed: there are now over 60 schools, several thousand spectators, hundreds of burgers, hot dogs, pink and blue T-shirts, a DJ, local media coverage, and a permanent place on the North Shore School District Calendar.
What a terrific final three games for the varsity girl’s lacrosse team. Going into the game against Carey on their turf field both teams were undefeated. Playing conditions were perfect and Glen Cove went out to a 4-3 lead at the half with two goals from Olivia Silvestri. Carey came back and tied the game at 6 -6 when Gabby Morrocu put in the winning shot with 4:31 left in the game. Scorers were Olivia Silvestri with 3 goals and Alex Gerin and Gabby Morrocu each with 2 goals. Amelia Weck had 9 saves. However, this was a total team effort where all players gave their all and made vital contributions.
North Shore Annual Lacrosse Day Packs the Fields!
On a sunny spring day, the North Shore fields were filled with excited students of all ages and their families for the annual North Shore Schools Lacrosse Day.
With helmets and sticks in hand, students engaged in competitive lacrosse matches including the North Shore Middle School Boys’ and Girls’ teams, both Varsity and Junior Varsity Men’s and Women’s teams. The day’s activities were organized by the North Shore Lacrosse Club and North Shore PAL (Police Athletics League).
On Sunday, May 1 at Glen Cove High School, the St Patrick’s CYO track team held its 5th annual track meet. The 2011 meet had 19 parishes from Long Island with over 1,500 athletes. The meet featured age appropriate relays, dashes, runs and field events.
The highlight of the day was the St. Patrick’s mile. St. Patrick’s own Christopher Langer was able to win the mile holding off his competition with a very impressive final 800. Other highlights were the 4th grade sprint medley team of Victoria Ghillani, Megan Guy, Emma Riveri and Cailey Welsh who took second competing as 6th graders, first-place finish for the 2nd grade 200M relay team of Ryan Guy, Adrien Brunelle, Luke Capabianco and Adan O’Connor and a 3rd place finish for the 5th grade 300M medley team of Joseph Schmitt, Bailey Danseglio, Peter Vaccaro and Max Lawson.
