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 is the first time since 1995 that the Lady Dragons have not lost a conference game. On Jan. 29, the Blue Dragons beat second place Sewanhaka for the second time this season. 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.
Levittown’s Division Avenue High School students James Kirk and Allison Schuck and MacArthur High School students Gerard Cunningham and Kristen Daly are proud recipients of the Nassau Zone Award. Sponsored by the New York State Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance, this award recognizes one male and one female student from each district who exemplify outstanding physical performance, scholastic ability and leadership qualities. The students were honored on Dec. 10 at the Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury.
With an overall record of 6-4 and 4-1 in league play, the Lady Dawgs team continues to improve. While on most nights the team is anchored by the excellent offensive talents of sophomore Brianna Wilson, it is truly a collective effort on the defensive side.
A tough, physical and aggressive group, the team consistently holds opposing teams to under 40 points in wins. In fact, a few weeks ago in a league game, they didn’t allow Clarke High School a single point in the third quarter.
