Four members of MacArthur High School’s cross-country team were honored recently at the annual Nassau County Cross-Country Awards dinner for their impressive achievements this season. The student honorees included: Ryan Clifford – All-Division, Steven Morra (All-Division), Erin Perotta (All-Conference) and Jennifer Race (All-Conference and All-Division).
The girls team concluded the season with a 9-4 record, and the boys wrapped up their season with an 8-5 record against some of the state’s top runners. The season was highlighted with a trip to the prestigious Brown University Invitational.
“These sports teams should be proud of their determination and dedication throughout the season,” Cross-Country coach John Reynolds stated. “They represented MacArthur High School admirably.”
The MacArthur High School boys varsity soccer team completed a season to remember. Faced with a record of 0-25-5 during the previous two seasons, the team was determined to turn things around, attending early morning weight training sessions in the spring and continuing with soccer training throughout the summer. It was evident early on that the group had grown close, which helped them to overcome numerous adversities throughout the season.
For the third time in the past four years the Lady Dragons of Division Avenue High School have captured the Conference Title. The girls are undefeated in conference A2 with a 12-0 record.

This victory not only captured the conference crown but it also secured a high seed in the upcoming county playoffs as well.

Congratulations to Megan Wing and Kerri Delisi for making the County All-Star team. Wing was as steady as ever in her march to the States as Delisi posted a 701 series for her final three games to clinch a spot in the Top 6. The final girl’s spot wasn’t that easy to seize as a roll off was needed to fill the team. The roll off was the first ever during the counties. The state tournament will be held March 2-3 at Strike and Spare Lanes in Syracuse.
