On Wednesday, Dec. 23 North Shore Wrestlers had their league opener hosting Cold Spring Harbor. After losing the first match of the night, North Shore went on to win every other contested match beating the Sea Hawks 54-17. The Vikings were led by seniors Pierce Jensen and Tom Shaw who both pinned their opponents. Juniors Nick Capparrelli and Jim Dromm also recorded pins while the Sea Hawks forfeited around Junior Dean Shmuley. Recording their first varsity wins were sophomores Jake Alverson, Matt Abromawitz and Freshman Adam Lavander. Rounding out the lineup was sophomore Mike Mendolson and freshman Dan Grabher, who both recorded wins.
On Tuesday, Dec. 15 the North Shore Varsity Girls Basketball Team had its first Conference Game. After a Conference Championship last year in Conference ABC-III, the girls moved up to the ultra-competitive Conference ABC-II. Their first opponent was the Green Dragons of Westbury. The Vikings came out in their press early in an attempt to create the pace necessary to wear down their opponent. In the early going, Westbury was able to break the press as North Shore found themselves down 23-13 with six minutes to go in the second quarter. The constant pressure, however, gave way to a huge Vikings run, as they closed the half on a 14-4 run to tie the score 27-27. The second half was dominated by the Vikings as they took a 60-48 lead with 2:00 minutes to go, en route to their 62-54 victory. The offense was lead by Amanda Johansen, on her 16th birthday, who had her first career triple-double, with 18 points, 18 rebounds and 10 steals. In addition, senior Elle Hoffman scored a career high 10 points to help seal the win. The Vikings next home game is on Dec. 29, at 11:30 a.m. Come out and support North Shore!
This week, sporting their new look maroon jerseys, the North Shore High School Men’s Bowling Team split their two matches. The Vikings win came in a dominant victory against Carle Place. The team then fought hard against Sewanhaka, but came out on the losing end. Great bowling this week from DJ More, Austin Simpson, Kenny Zukas, and Eric Ohman. Freshman Dan Syracuse bowled his first, and certainly not his last game as a member of the Varsity team.

On Dec. 15, the Varsity Girls’ Basketball team played their first conference game vs. Bethpage HS. “We fought hard all game however, we were down by 10 going into the fourth quarter,” said the coach, adding, “A trait that I have noticed from our team is that they are fighters who play their hearts out and never give up in games. We went on an exciting 21-11 run in the fourth quarter to send the game into overtime.”
Many of the points came off tenacious defense. The team in overtime limited the opposition to only one point. Captain Heather Artinian displayed great poise and scored the winning points on the free throw line in overtime with a few seconds remaining in the game, to secure a 55-51 come from behind victory. Sophomore Nicole Alexander led the way with 22 points, 13 rebounds and 5 block shots. Seventh-grader Taylah Hudson scored 13 points with 4 steals and Heather Artinian contributed 16 points, 11 rebounds and 5 steals.
“Our goal this season is to be the very best team we can be, putting the needs of the team before the needs of the individual. We are building trust, communication, commitment to each other and the value of very hard work in practice and in games. There is great potential on this team and we are getting better every day. The Lady Covers of Glen Cove is ready to take on the competition. Watch out Nassau County,” the coach added.

Mrs. Gow said that she has had the pleasure of serving as New York State Public High School Girl’s Lacrosse co-coordinator for the last 10 years and was happy to have been re-elected for another term.
“It is an incredibly satisfying job, as I get to meet many talented and knowledgeable people in the world of women’s lacrosse, which is the fastest- growing sport in the country,” she said. “As sports coordinator, I keep the whole state up-to-date with the latest nuances pertaining to the sport. I act as a liaison with officials, college coaches, high school coaches, athletic directors and the state office personnel. My most fun duty is to run the State Girls Lacrosse Tournament in June beginning with a banquet and speaker all the way to the State Champions. This year, I have been fortunate to have been selected as a member of the National Federation of State High Schools Association for the Girls Lacrosse Rules Committee which meets to discuss potential rule changes, which in turn recommend them to the U.S. Lacrosse Rules Committee.
The women’s track and field team had a wonderful week of training and racing. This past week the team attended two competitions, both located at St. Anthony’s High School. Overall there were several outstanding performances as the upperclassmen were continuing where they left off as the “newbies” or freshman were just getting their feet wet. Senior Courtney Morris began the week with a first place effort in the 55m hurdles in which her time was the fastest North Shore has seen in many years. Other first place finishes were by Duke bound Senior Brianna Welch in the 600, and 300 as she is her making her final run as a North Shore Viking, and Sophomore Brianna Nerud in the 3000. There were many firsts, not only in place but also in participation. We have a new jumping squad, as converted distance runners Junior Danielle Muoio and Emily Osman leaped to a strong finish in the long jump. Other fine performances were achieved by freshman Jessica Donohue in the 3000m, freshman Whitney McCarthy in the 600m, eighth-grader Raquel Fossett in the 600m, and junior Arianna Pappas who set a personal best in the 400m.
The season is starting right where the cross-country season left off - in the front.

The Glen Cove Pony White Cardinals capped off their season with an exciting win against Broad Channel to bring home the Championship trophy. Both teams traveled to Bethpage for the game.
Broad Channel kicked off to Glen Cove to start the game. Nicholas Lucchese received the ball. After passes to Frankie Castiglione and Tommy Burke and runs by Matthew Aufiero, the ball was turned over on the 2-yard line. The Cardinals quickly rallied and got a safety when Kobe Thompson sacked the Broad Channel quarterback in the end zone.
“The Thanksgiving holiday is a time when we make a genuine effort to give thanks to everyone that has made a positive contribution in our lives. During our 59th year, Glen Cove Jr. Baseball & Softball had over 650 boys and girls participate in the program. Running a program of this magnitude is not an easy undertaking. With busy schedules it becomes more and more difficult to get the volunteers needed to truly be successful. The board of GCJB & S would like to give a big thank you to all those that have given to the boys and girls of our program this year,” the group said in a release.

Lacrosse players from Glen Cove High School did our district proud demonstrating their leadership skills to elementary students. “The look of curiosity and excitement emerged from the third-graders at Connolly when their older peers entered the room,” athletics director Dr. Scott Silverman told the Record Pilot. Throughout the morning the senior boys and girls lacrosse players spent time introducing the game of lacrosse. They also taught some skills and had discussions about what it takes to be a successful athlete. “I was amazed by the ease at which our students were able to connect with the younger students. In the afternoon, the players spent time at Landing School continuing their presentation,” Silverman added.
Many of Glen Cove’s players got their start at the Glen Cove City Lacrosse Program. (See information on the upcoming clinic in this issue.)
