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.
Veteran right-handed hurler Ashley Martin tossed a complete-game masterpiece to lead the Lady Marines of Long Beach (3-3 league, 3-4 overall) to a 4-2 victory over MacArthur (3-2 league, 4-2 overall) in a non-conference showdown on April 4 in Levittown.
The Lady Generals countered with their ace-junior Briana Lombardo. The fire-balling righty held up her end of the bargain to keep her team in the game, scattering just four runs on six hits over seven innings of work.
Lombardo worked her way out of several tough jams, but Long Beach broke through with a four-run fourth inning that included an Annie Winerip RBI double and a single from Brianna Rivera that drove home two more runs.
The bright, gleaming sun illuminated the field, but it was Division senior midfielders Christina Rea and Julie Ballantyne who provided the sparkle.
The duo tallied four goals each to lead the Lady Dragons (0-1 league, 2-1 overall) to a 17-6 victory over the Bethpage Golden Eagles (2-0 league, 3-1 overall) in a non-conference matchup on Saturday afternoon in Levittown.
In girl’s lacrosse, ball possession is the name of the game and Division head coach Sean Donellan was quick to note this important facet of the offense.
The Salk wrestling team finished their season undefeated for the third year in a row.

Coach Lassen and Coach Kempinski congratulate all of the Salk wrestlers.

Levittown speedster Jodie Schoppmann established herself as one of the premier female runners not just on Long Island but in the entire nation with a mind boggling performance in the USA Track & Field National Championship 50K Run held at Caumsett State Park on Sunday, March 6.
Schoppmann was the first woman overall, completing the 10-loop 31.07 mile course in 3:20:12, a 6:27 per mile pace that brought her to the finish line more than 16 full minutes in front of runner-up Shanna Ailes Istni of Kent, OH.
The MacArthur Wrestling Generals lead all teams in Nassau County with nine All-County wrestlers in the Nassau County Championship Wrestling Tournament. This includes crowning two Nassau County Champions. Seniors Chris Perez at 130 lbs. and Brian Conrad at 140 lbs. both came away with individual county titles.
Perez also went on to place third in the 2011 New York State Tournament. For Perez, this was his second county championship. Last year he finished first, at 112 lbs.
On Saturday, March 5 the Girls Varsity Basketball Team at Division Avenue High School reached the Nassau County Championship game for the second consecutive year. This season the Blue Dragons won their conference with an 11-1 record and were seeded first for the county tournament.
The Lady Dragons were poised to defend their county title when injury struck. Senior starter Nicolette McCreary broke her arm two days before the playoffs were to start. McCreary plays the strong forward and was the leading rebounder this season for Division. The injury to McCreary had the Dragons somewhat shaken, yet they were able to regroup and beat Valley Stream North in the first round of the county tournament by a score of 65-33. Taylor Malings (14) and Breanne Connolly (17) led the scoring for the Dragons.
