Third and fourth-graders meet weekly and participate in many skill building activities and scrimmage situations. The program is run under the direction of Artie Diamond. The fifth and sixth-graders practice weekly and have games every Sunday in the Spring.
Just in case a nationwide comedy tour wasn’t enough of a challenge, Evan Wecksell has taken on another. For the second time in three years, the guitar-playing comedian and Great Neck native (South High School, Class of 1997) is touring the country while training for a half-marathon.
Evan’s 2011 Re-Run Tour began on March 26 at Columbia/Barnard Hillel and will continue through May 2, the day after the Long Island Marathon emanating from Eisenhower Park. So Evan still has more time to work out, run, sing and tell jokes, and driving/flying to the next gig. If he has any down time, he can be seen back in Great Neck running his hometown streets from Middle Neck Road all the way up to Gatsby Lane in Kings Point.
The Great Neck Wolverines PAL High School Hockey Program is holding tryouts for the 2011-2012 season at the Parkwood Ice Rink on Thursday May 12 from 7:45 to 9:15 p.m. There will be a varsity team available to players in grades 9 through 12. If we have enough players, there will be a junior varsity team available to players in grades 9 through 11 only, and we would like to see if we can field a middle school team from students in grades 6 through 8.
Did you know the same Wolverines player scored the first goal of the season, the first goal of the playoffs and the first goal of the state tournament? That player is #26, Brandon Shapiro. Great Job Brandon. Go Wolverines!

The Squirts came into the tournament looking to build on a strong season finishing tied with the Edge. The opening game against hometown team. The Hurricanes was a back and forth shootout for two periods with goalie Brendan McNulty playing solidly, keeping things close. However, in the end, Great Neck could not manage to score on the stingy opponents and dropped the opener 7-2.
In game two, later the same evening, it was clear that the Squirts were running on fumes after the high-paced first game. Despite another stellar performance in goal by McNulty, the Squirts were just a step behind throughout the game and took too many penalties, which limited their scoring opportunities and resulted in losing 5-0 to the Seators.
