Placing first was senior captain Dean Shmuley at 145 lbs. Dean, a 2009 All County wrestler, walked through the tournament finishing with a 10-6 win in the finals. This caps two other first-place finishes at the Glen Cove tournament and the Syosset invitational. Dean has only one loss this year.
Taking second were the other two team captains: Senior Nick “Panini” Capparelli at 189 lbs. and Sophomore Dan Grabher at 135 lbs. Capparelli, a 2010 All County wrestler, lost only the third time this year in a close finals match in the final seconds. Nick also won the Glen Cove tournament and took second at the Syosset invitational. Dan Grabher, the other second-place finisher, is a 4 time All Conference wrestler and only in his sophomore year. He finished second at the Glen Cove tournament and fourth at Syosset. All three wrestlers are returning to the counties for their third time.
Finishing the list is Junior Jake Alverson. A tough 152 lb. junior, Jake is joining the team Captains for his first trip to the Counties. In December, Jake finished fourth at the Glen Cove tournament.

For the first time in almost a decade, the North Shore girls’ bowling team has qualified for the county finals. The season began strong as the girls’ jumped out to an early conference lead. As the season progressed, their confidence improved along with their averages. Every single member of the team improved their game throughout the course of the season. As the regular season came to an end, the team finished with a winning record in third place in their conference.
The North Shore Girls’ Varsity Bowling team is led by the high averages of Lexi Marshall and Emma Saccone. Danielle Zaleskie and Liz Koslow have both improved tremendously this season, and have been extremely reliable. Kim Abbondondolo and Meghan Henneberger have helped the team greatly when they have been needed the most to step up to the challenge. According to coach Granieri, the team has been successful this season because when one teammate is not doing well, there is always at least one or two others who step up to help each other out.
The county finals will take place this Saturday morning at Garden City. Please come out to support the team!
