W. Harry Baugher Scholarship Awarded to Faello and Killeen
On May 9, Jimmy Faello and Katie Killeen, seniors at Manhasset High School, received the PAL/W. Harry Baugher Annual Scholarship award at the Manhasset Hall of Fame Dinner. The W. Harry Baugher Scholarship honors the memory of the late Mr. Baugher, who did so much for the young athletes of Manhasset. The award, which was presented by Mr. Baugher's son Harry Baugher, is given annually to the male and female Manhasset senior lacrosse player whose qualities include sportsmanship, leadership, teamwork, team spirit, tenacity, sacrifice, and love of the game. These are the same ideals that Mr. Baugher believed in and stressed to the PAL/PBC players he coached. Next year, Katie will play lacrosse at Notre Dame, while Jimmy will do the same at Brown University.
Manhasset Sixth Grade Lax Are Winners
The Manhasset Sixth Grade Lacrosse teams coached by Dan Corcoran, Frank Coughlin, Kevin Conway, and Ron Gallo completed a successful season with their final game against perennial powerhouse, the Long Beach Mariners. The Sixth Grade Long Beach team has remained undefeated throughout their four-year PAL travel lacrosse career. In fact the only teams which have pushed Long Beach to the brink of defeat have been Manhasset's two travel lacrosse teams. In each of their third, fourth, and fifth grade years, Long Beach has been able to win by margins of only one or two goals. This year, unfortunately, Manhasset's boys in orange and blue once again fell just short, even though they went down swinging. In a game that Manhasset led for much of the first half and which was tied until late in the third quarter, Manhasset fell by a score of 6-4. Nevertheless, Manhasset's Sixth Grade squad came out winners, as each and every boy made an extraordinary effort to snap the league leader's four-year unbeaten streak.
