Division Brings Physics Crown Home
For the last few years, Division Avenue High School in the Levittown School District has flirted with winning the annual Long Island Physics Olympics held at SUNY Stony Brook. Finishing in the top three out of more than a dozen competing schools each year is an accomplishment in itself.
Residents Speak in Support of Retention of High School Principal
A rumor in the community, that the principal of one of the Levittown School District's two high schools has been actively searching for a new position, with the help of district administration, was an issue raised by several concerned parents at last week's board of education meeting. These parents implored the board and administration to do all that could be done to convince this principal, who has made a difference in the school, to remain in the district.

Island Trees Sports
Well, it's already April and the Lady Bulldogs of Island Trees are still trying to convince Mother Nature that it's time to play softball. The weather has just been brutal, snow, rain and freezing temperatures has all but put a stop to our preseason games. After long and grueling practices indoors, the Lady Dawgs are raring to go. A lot of new faces on the softball diamond this year. After graduating one of Long Island's best pitchers in Jamie Pietrantoni and the entire team behind her, Coach Logan and Coach Price have their work cut out for them. Leading the way this year will be junior hurler Chrissy DeMott. She will more than hold her own and keep Island Trees softball at the level it is used to playing. Also coming back off a season full of injuries is senior catcher Jaclyn Habermehl. If we can keep her healthy, there won't be many stolen bases in Levittown. Three other seniors will be counted on a lot this year. They are first baseman Sandy Baglivo, third baseman Carol Lehmann and centerfielder Kristen Mullervy. Some key positions will be held by juniors this year as well. Erin Ludewig and Liz Dinolfo have earned the starting spots at second and short stop. Junior Kristen Schafer will fill an outfield spot, while sophomores Rebecca Santoriello, Erin Dodge, Jamie Zetterberg, Jen Grella, Erin Carroll, Corinne Vinberg and Tasha Weinmann will complete the roster.
