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.
Fifty-six-year-old Levittown speedster Jon Wallach took first place in the 55-59 Age Group in the Jan. 19 Sayville Running Company 10-mile run to the Blue Point Brewery. Wallach crossed the finish line in 1:09:17, 49 seconds in front of Ray Costanzo of Sound Beach, who was second in the age group.
Four members of MacArthur High School cross-country team were honored at the recent annual Nassau County Cross-Country awards dinner for their impressive achievements this season. The student-athlete honorees included Erin Perotta (All-Conference), Jennifer Race (All-Conference and All-Division), Ryan Clifford (All-Division) and Steven Morra (All-Division).
The girls’ team completed their season with a 9-4 record, and the boys wrapped up their season with an 8-5 record against some of the top runners in the state. The season was highlighted by a trip to the prestigious Brown University Invitational in November.
“The team should be proud of their determination and dedication all season long as they represented MacArthur admirably,” coach John Reynolds stated.
As the midpoint of the basketball season approaches, the Lady Dragons of Division Avenue High School are on top in Conference A2 with a 6-0 record and sole possession of first place.
The MacArthur wrestling team took beat the Mepham Pirates on Jan. 16 by the score of 57-18. The Generals registered five pins in the match, none being bigger than Mike Marrero’s pin over #1 ranked Louis Hernandez. The Generals kept the momentum to win two days later, as the Generals took the league title against Long Beach High School.

Call it a coincidence, but the timing for Chris and Peter Ferraro’s announcement of the creation of a new hockey and recreation facility couldn’t be any better.
Two days before the National Hockey League was set to drop the puck for a shortened, 48-game season beginning on Jan. 19, the Ferraro twins – former NHL players and Olympians themselves – broke ground on their $15 million, privately financed Twin Rinks Ice Center at Eisenhower Park.
