Levittown’s Division High School girls JV basketball team took a hit after a 34-10 loss to the Manhasset squad, which continues its season undeafeated.
Alexia Terenzi led the scoring with eight points, but the real story was the complete dominance on the defensive side of the ball. Their full-court pressure wrecked havoc on Division, who was unable to establish any sort of rhythm on offense. Manhasset’s Head Coach Tara Marsigliano was impressed with the performance but regrets her decision to play with such intensity late in the blowout.
Junior guard Christina Merrill of Levittown was recently named Skyline Conference Player of the Week for her actions on the court to help the Farmingdale State Rams to a 65-37 victory, over Medgar Evers.
After nearly a month long break, Merrill scored a team-high of 14 points on 5-of-7 shooting opportunities and knocked down 4-of-5 shots from 3-point range in just 14 minutes of action. She added two rebounds, an assist and a steal. Merrill matched her single game career-high with four field goals from beyond the arc.

A record field of 1266 runners and walkers crossed the finish line on Saturday morning, Dec. 21, at the 26th annual Carter, DeLuca, Farrell & Schmidt Ho Ho Ho 5-kilometer run, which started and finished at the John F. Kennedy Middle School in Bethpage.
