Women’s Track

One down and one to go. The North Shore HS Women’s Track and Field team took one more successful step towards attaining a three-peat of dominance in Nassau County. This past week they won the division championship by 83 points over Manhasset, Lynbrook, and Great Neck North to just name a few. Overall 15 girls attained all-division status:

Elizabeth Caldwell 
Christina Convey       
Eleni Efstathiadis
Brittany Farkouh
Taylor Farkouh
Lea Farrell
Charlotte Manogue
Gillian McGovern
Sara McNulty
Danielle Muoio
Samantha Nadel
Brianna Nerud
Arianna Pappas
Gabriella Vezza
Brianna Welch

The next step will be the county championship taking place this week at Mitchell Field. The program has already won the cross-country, and winter track county championship this past school year. If they win this week they would be the first Nassau County Program in 20 years to win all three county championships in the same year. WOW! They are built for the playoffs, and based on the showing in the Division championship, something really special could occur.
