With summer approaching, the Jaguars will be closing out the season soon with only two games and a tournament left. The girls now have 5 wins and 2 losses and stand at third place (out of 10 teams) in Division 4 with 15 points. Only 4 points separate third from the top spot, so the Jaguars are ready to give these last two games their all to try to finish first. But the real point of the game is that the girls always have fun playing and building strong and lasting friendships. You’ve heard about their excellent work on the field altogether, but a team is nothing without the people in it. This week, we want to give props to each and every one of the girls and their trainer for their skills, efforts, and dedication in making the Jaguars a fantastic soccer team.

The Wolves are howling now! Our own Great Neck Wolverines ice hockey team grabbed a share of first place in their spring tune-up league last Saturday night. They beat the previously unbeaten Rangers by a score of 5-3. Both teams are now tied for 1st place with a 3-1 record in a 10 team conference. The win was the Wolverines third consecutive victory after dropping their opener.
It’s hard to believe that this group of kids took the ice as a team just four short weeks ago. At that time, there was a lot of uncertainty surrounding the team as it got started. This collection of Great Neck High School hockey players had never played together as a team. They have grown together faster than anyone could have predicted.
With the advent of Spring our local little league baseball players return to their happy place upon the fields of the Great Neck Park District. This season finds our fourth and fifth graders playing in a four team division consisting of the Cardinals, Dodgers, Marlins and Nationals- each team outfitted with their Major League Baseball caps and matching shirts.
Early season action has seen the Marlins led by the steady hitting of Marc Zalta and Perry Choo. The Dodgers have shown life with the strong bat of Noah Ondris and the pitching of Oliver Besman. The Cardinals are being paced by the overall play of Max Chafiian and Brad Fritzhand while the Nationals have gotten strong hitting and pitching from Mitchell Hutt and Dylan Damaghi.
