The Island Trees soccer team has announced that Andrew Willoughby signed his national letter of intent to play soccer at New York Institute of Technology. Willoughby was a three-year starter for the Bulldogs. His most impressive season was his senior year.
As a captain, he led the team to a league championship and a run to the county semifinals. He led the league with six goals and nine assists, two of which came in dramatic style in overtime during the playoffs. Nassau County and New York State rewarded him for his season earning Conference Player of the Year, All County and All State. Willoughby will be attending NYIT on scholarship while studying business management.
The Bulldog track team had a triumphant showing at the “Green and Gold Invitational” held by the Lynbrook Track Team on Friday, May 6. This invitational included a dozen teams from across Nassau County.
Some of the highlights included:
Lucas Pugliese setting the Island Trees High School record in the 400-meter race with a time of 51.8 secs. He not only won that event, but he anchored the victorious 4 by 4 relay team.
Supervisor Kate Murray and Councilman Gary Hudes presented congratulatory signs to the Levittown Athletic Club (LAC) Girls’ Softball Team 2010 at the Azalea Road Field in Levittown. Pictured with the young players are Co-President Anthony Valente, Board Member Michael Scharff, U10 Coach Billy Budrewicz, Co-President Jeff Jones and Coach Michael Bridgwood.
On Monday, April 25, the girls’ track team had a really nice showing at the Derrick Adkins Invitational at Mitchell Complex. This invitational had top runners from all over the metropolitan area, and the Island Trees girls did well. They placed in the following events:
2nd place with a time of 1:49.00 in the 4 x 200: Theresa Hinshaw, Kelly Schultz, Emily Cramner, and Alexa Dolgos
The Lady Dawg’s track and field team of Island Trees has emerged as a true competitor this spring season, giving the team a spark it hasn’t had in some time. The small team of 22 girls has proven that “It’s not the size of the dog in the fight; it’s the size of the fight in the dog.”
The team has a 6-2-league record, but that does justice for this team. This became obvious recently as the girls took second place despite winning eight of 11 running events.
Congratulations to Notre Dame for a great season!

On Friday, March 25 the Island Trees Athletic Department held the Athletic Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony in the High School gym. Twenty-six alumni and two coaches were inducted as families and friends filled the gym with enthusiastic applause.
