The Levittown U-8 girls soccer team of the Nassau South Shore Soccer Club dominated at the Adam Novellanno Annual Indoor Soccer Tournament on Sunday, Jan. 30. The Rosebud Rebels came in first place thanks to their explosive offense lead by team Captain Kira Olivos.
Julia Osterman contributed her usual untiring efforts assisting on most of Olivos’ nine goals. Olivos deservedly took home Most Valuable Player honors in the U-8 girls group.
As midterm exam week approaches and with it the halfway point of the girls’ basketball season, the Lady Dragons of Division Avenue High School are in first place in conference A1.
This year’s team is dominated by a very talented group of seniors. In fact the Blue Dragon’s starting lineup is entirely seniors!
Running the point guard position is senior all star Taylor Malings. Malings is a three-year varsity player and has been the starting point guard for the past two seasons. She has led the lady dragons in assists the past two seasons and is one of the top five assist leaders in Lady Dragon history.

The MacArthur Boys Basketball team upped its winning streak to four games and moved within a game of clinching its first playoff berth in three years with victories against East Meadow and Hicksville.
The Generals (8-4, 6-1 league) beat East Meadow, 48-39, on Tuesday, Jan. 18 behind 15 points from junior forward Kevin Roach and 11 points from junior guard William Cheshire.
Expectations were high at the start of this year’s basketball season for the girls of Division Avenue High School. No one knew what to expect after last year’s Long Island Championship and the graduation of a few key players. Trying to replace defensive standout Kristen Costello (now at the University of Delaware) and conference scoring leader Nicolette Parmese (attending Bryn Mawr University) would prove a challenge for the Blue Dragons.
Filling in nicely for the graduated players are Nicolette McCreary and Kristen Stuart both at the forward positions. Swingman Christina Rea, shooting guard Julie Ballantyne, and point guard Taylor Malings round out this season’s starting lineup.
A pair of dominating performances on the offensive boards by junior forward Kevin Roach helped lift the MacArthur boys basketball team to consecutive wins against Herricks and Port Washington as the Generals improved to 4-1 in league play.
Since foul trouble limited his contribution in a non-conference loss against Farmingdale, Roach has averaged 17.3 points per game over a four-game span. That stretch was capped by a 23-point performance in MacArthur’s 61-52 win at Port Washington on Friday, Jan. 14. Roach’s output that night — which included 13 of MacArthur’s 15 first-quarter points — established a new career high, surpassing a 20-point performance Roach had as a freshman against Syosset on Jan. 14, 2009.
Junior guard William Cheshire shot the MacArthur boys’ basketball team into the finals of the Jeff Shaw Memorial Tournament. A day later, the host Generals won the four-team event by beating Island Trees, 51-40, in the championship game on Thursday, Dec. 23.
MacArthur took a game-high 23-point lead late in the third quarter against the Bulldogs on consecutive baskets by junior forward Dan Svenelid en route to the tournament title. Senior guard Kevin Monahan finished with a team-high 15 points. Senior forward Evan Gardner and senior guard Jamie McAndrew contributed six points apiece against Island Trees.
