Robert Malandro’s coaching awards are almost as numerous as the number of years he has spent coaching the Holy Trinity boys baseball team.
With a quarter-century worth of experience and five Catholic League Championships, Malandro has been paving the way for successful high school baseball players for more than two decades. Humble, enthusiastic and dedicated are only a few words that adequately describe the five-time NSCHSAA Coach of the Year.
After playing baseball all around the country with the Nassau County Police Department, Malandro found coaching to be the next natural step after his retirement. A Hicksville resident himself, Malandro began coaching baseball at Holy Trinity in 1989 after answering an ad in a local paper.

For a small school tucked away in a corner of a small village, The Wheatley School in Old Westbury has accumulated a rich athletic history. The gymnasium has scores of banners hanging, saluting the school’s achievements over the years.
“Two seasons ago, we reached the New York State finals in soccer,’’ athletic director Tom Fitzpatrick said. “We were Nassau County champions in baseball two years ago. Our teams make the playoffs every year. We’re competitive.”
Wheatley is proud of the opportunities it offers its students.
The New York Cosmos have submitted a proposal to build a 25,000-seat soccer stadium at Belmont Parl.
The so-called Elmont Town Crossing will involve transforming two sections of Belmont Park into an entertainment complex, with a “Restaurant Row” of nine new eateries, nearly 250,000 square feet of retail space, a 175-room hotel and the development of a brand-new 4.3-acre public park for the residential community.
The proposed development was formally delivered to the Empire State Development Corporation, the state’s economic development arm, on Jan. 11 and is expected to cost more than $400 million. It would create more than 500 construction jobs and over 3,000 full-time permanent jobs.
