New Hyde Park Memorial High School senior Mathew Dluginski admits he doesn’t convert on all his shots.
But warning to lacrosse goalies: he never gives up on the play.
“I feel like I don’t stop trying,” said Dluginski. “When I miss, I make it a point to score the next time.”Dluginski has been doing plenty of scoring for the New Hyde Park Gladiators since 2012. He scored 15 goals as a sophomore, 38 as a junior and a school-record 55 goals this season. Dluginski ended up scoring three or more goals in 13 of 15 games in 2014.
Former NBA/WNBA standouts Vin Baker, Wes Matthews, Anthony Avent and Tamecka Dixon served as youth coaches at the “Full Court Press: Prep for Success” program sponsored by National Basketball Retired Players Association, National Police Athletic/Activities League for National Urban League and Nassau County PAL.
The New Hyde Park U10 Stormcats have moved up in the standings after two consecutive wins over the past two weekends. On May 10, the Stormcats eked out at 3-2 win over the Lynbrook/E. Rockaway Rebels. Despite being down three players, the boys played hard and stayed strong throughout the game. The goaltender team of Christopher Ribaric and Dino Vidaich held the Rebels to just two goals with the excellent defensive team of Ryan Wasserman, Ryan Ommen and James Gensch. The outstanding offensive playing by Dean Caldwell, Brendan
Cooper and LJ Tsiforas kept the pressure on the Rebels’ defense for most of the game and assisted Colin Coope in scoring two of the team’s goals and Christopher Ribaric in sealing the deal with the third.
Newton Tsang didn’t have the United States Military Academy at West Point on his radar until March 2013.
That’s when Tsang, of New Hyde Park, was informed by his South Kent School guidance counselor that West Point men’s soccer head coach Russell Payne was interested in recruiting him. A few weeks passed, and Tsang set up an unofficial visit to the campus where he was captivated by West Point’s academics.
Most college coaches want a nice, long vacation after their regular season is over.
Not Lou Bernardi.
Just weeks after concluding his second season as pitching coach for the SUNY College at Old Westbury, the New Hyde Park resident begins his second season as head coach of the Westhampton Aviators.
The Aviators, part of the Hamptons Collegiate Baseball League, kick off their season June 1, when they play the Montauk Mustangs.
The streak of consecutive playoff appearances for the New Hyde Park Gladiators varsity baseball team has been snapped at four.
Despite finishing the season with a 9-9-1 record, the Gladiators fell just one game short of a postseason berth.
“It is disappointing not getting in the playoffs,” said Head Coach Doug Robins.
Dominick Roberge believes it’s his size that makes him a top-notch faceoff man for Sewanhaka’s boys lacrosse team.
“I have a size advantage,” said Roberge, a senior captain. “And I’m pretty much stronger than anyone I face.”
Sewanhaka coach Peter Burgess agrees.
“He’s the strongest kid in the school, he’s always in the weight room” said Burgess. “He’s about 200 pounds but it’s all muscle, you can’t teach that.”
New Hyde Park resident and Chaminade High School graduate Thomas Roulis, a student and athlete at Dartmouth College, was recently named the Ivy League Athlete of the Week.
Roulis recently helped Dartmouth take three of four from the division-leading Yale Bulldogs to climb back to within a game of the top of the standings. He was instrumental in two non-conference wins during the week as the Big Green defeated Boston College on the road, 2-1, then rallied for an 8-7 walkoff win the following day against Holy Cross.
One member of the New Hyde Park Gladiators varsity baseball team hopes to see a lifetime of hard work pay off this season.
Ace starting pitcher, cleanup hitter, first baseman and most of all captain are some of the many titles held by senior Cody Campson,
Campson has been playing baseball for as long as he can remember and spent years perfecting his craft. He has pitched since a young age and played first base in games when he is not on the mound.
For a team to succeed it needs a player who will do the little things; for the New Hyde Park Gladiators varsity baseball team, that player is Chris Ferlazzo.
Ferlazzo, a senior, is the starting second baseman and number nine hitter for the Gladiators.
He is not a power hitter, but his teammates and coaches can rely on him to work the count, move the runner over and play sound defense. Ferlazzo describes himself as a contact hitter that simply looks to get on base and move the runners over, even if he has to sacrifice himself.
