The Glen Cove Girls Varsity Tennis season is officially over, and what a great season it was. Participating in Conference III has always been a challenge for us and so expectations for the season were never a sure thing. Still, with some experience in our favor with returning players, things began to get intense when the wins were piling up and the play-offs were within reach. The season record finished with the Glen Cove girls in second place (9-3), to first place MacArthur H.S. (11-1) and a solid berth in the playoffs.

As the season continues, so does the outstanding performance of the girl’s cross-country team. This past week the squad improved their record to 8-0 on the season by shutting out rivals Valley Stream North and Wheatley.

The Glen Cove Giants began their fall baseball season on Sunday, Sept. 19 at home against the Ozone Park Dukes with a twilight doubleheader, sweeping both games 13-0 and 11-1. The Giants were well rested having played their last tournament ball four weeks earlier in Reading, PA.
The Giants had recruited a few additional players since their last tournament as six Giants had returned to college. Joey Fiorino led off the game for the Giants and hit a grounder to the Dukes third baseman’s back hand. The ball was bobbled and Joey’s after burners kicked-in to reach safely. Eamonn Boyd dug-in and hit a sharp grounder to the SS who could not make the play and the Giants had first and second with no outs. After the Dukes pitcher settled in and got two outs, Fiorino raced home on a passed ball to give the Giants the lead, which they would never relinquish.
