If ever there was one, this was a victory to be savored.

Island Trees High School held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the grand opening of its brand new, state-of-the-art wrestling room. The new wrestling facility, which was formerly a weight room, received a complete makeover over the summer. The room comes complete with new wrestling mats on the floor, pads on the walls, a fresh paint job, a public-address sound system and a big-screen television to view practice tapes. The room has also been dedicated to Ted Maurice Petersen, a New York State Wrestling Hall of Famer who passed away in 1989. Petersen taught and coached wrestling in the Island Trees School District for 30 years, serving 27 of those years as the varsity coach.
In that span, his wrestling teams compiled a record of 325 wins, 70 losses and four ties. Under Petersen’s watch, Island Trees won the Nassau County team championship three times, in 1976, 1977 and 1984. The school had 28 individual Nassau County champions and six New York state champions with Petersen at the helm.
Senior forward Kevin Roach opened the scoring on a putback and guards Gerard Cunningham and Tyler Eppich followed with consecutive three-pointers as the MacArthur boys basketball team eventually opened a 10-0 lead en route to a 55-38 win over Island Trees in the finals of the Jeff Shaw Memorial Basketball Tournament on Friday, Dec. 9.
Roach, who is being recruited by Division III Moravian College in Bethlehem, PA, finished with a game-high 20 points and was named tournament MVP. He fell three points shy of matching his career high, which came at Port Washington last season. It marked the third time Roach has reached the 20-point plateau in his four-year varsity career. He also netted 20 points as a freshman against Syosset.
