The Glen Cove COBRA’S Senior Softball team, formed in1995, are coming off a great season with a Sr. Softball Tournament Title. They are now recruiting new players for the 2009 season.
The COBRAS belong to the Long Island Senior Softball Association (LISSA), which is comprised of 20 teams who play from May through September. If you are 60-69 years old and enjoying competitive slow pitch softball, then the team would like to have you come and join them this spring.
Optimal sport performance is not something that just happens on its own. It takes a dedicated effort towards both the physical and mental aspects of the game. Whether you play soccer on a regular basis or tennis on the weekends, there is a wealth of information available to you from the world of sport psychology.
Sport psychology as a discipline was born in 1978. Sport psychologists provide two major types of services: (1) performance enhancement strategies; and (2) counseling for a variety of issues affecting the athlete.
Being the Athletic Director for Glen Cove Schools is one of the most exciting and challenging positions I have held.
I was reflecting the other day on the many undertakings I have taken on and the reasons for doing so. Without a doubt, my mission is all about producing the best possible physical education, health and athletics environment for our Glen Cove Students.
The Boys Varsity Lacrosse Team won two games this week in convincing fashion, beating Wheatley 13-3 and Lawrence 13-2. The two wins pushes the team’s overall record to 11-5, the best record under coach Steve Tripp’s tenure, besting the 10 wins in 1987, 1989 and 2000.

The young athletes participated in various track and field challenges, which exercised their goodwill, sportsmanship and parish pride.
With four games left, the varsity girls played two tough games last week. On Tuesday they headed out to Clarke to play on a very wet and muddy field due to the inclement weather. Many girls had been in A.P. exams so the game began late and it took the first half to settle down. They were ahead 4 – 3 with scores from Yvonne Mennuti’s two goals, Kelsea Valance’s one goal and Meri Baade’s one goal. After the half the girls played extremely well and finished out with an 11-6 win.
