Across Nassau County, residents are reacting with a mix of surprise, empathy, and appreciation to the Nassau County District Attorney’s recent arrests of more than 100 men for soliciting prostitutes, including three Manhasset residents ranging in age from 22 to 79.
The DA’s office not only arrested the men, but made public their names and photographs. That, some feel, was an invasion of privacy, while others feel that the men should take responsibility for their actions, and their neighbors have a right to know what type of people surround them.

For the first time since 2005, the Manhasset Indians won the Long Island championship and took home a quarterfinal win last week on Motamed Field at Adelphi University. Unfortunately, the dream of a state championship ended in upstate Cortland, as the girls’ lacrosse team fell to Brighton in the Class B girls’ lacrosse semifinal.
Though obviously frustrated and disappointed in coming so close to the state finals after a long and promising season, the ladies of Manhasset can still see the promise in the future of the team.

Three members of the Manhasset Varsity Softball team were honored at the Nassau County Softball Coaches Association awards dinner at the Crest Hollow Country Club on June 4. Head Coach Lauren Majewski escorted the three players as they were honored by the Association for their outstanding play, and contribution to the Nassau County Softball League. These awards are significant as they are selected by the league coaches. This year, Manhasset had the distinction of three honorees recognized by the league.
Senior Ariana Larocca and freshman Murphy McGorry both received All-Division honors while senior Katherine Giesecke was awarded the All-Conference honor. The Manhasset High School Softball Program, under the keen guidance of Coach Majewski, has become a perennial playoff contender.
