Another Successful SCA Fall Luncheon
Even though the weather wasn't cooperative, a record-breaking 320+ Manhasset SCA supporters attended the annual Fall Luncheon on Nov. 8 at North Hills Country Club. There were 20 boutique vendors for lots of fun pre-holiday shopping as well as an abundant silent auction and raffle. But the real highlight of the afternoon was the harp performance by Johanna Lovecchio and vocal performances by Edward Delman, Megan McCarney, Emmett O'Hanlon and Katie Papa. These talented Manhasset High School students served to remind everyone why we were there: to support the Manhasset Public Schools and all the students who attend Munsey Park, Shelter Rock, the middle school and high school.

Lady Indians Advance to Nassau County Hockey Finals
The Manhasset Varsity Field Hockey team concluded a great season as it advanced to the Nassau County Class B Championship game. To reach this game, the Lady Indians survived a triple overtime game against North Shore in the semifinals. This game was played on Nov. 2 at North Shore, both teams played very aggressively and were tied after regulation. In the two overtime periods, Manhasset played with a lot of poise and determination to force the sudden death. Manhasset won the "strokes" phase of overtime by a score of 3-0. Strokes consist of one-on-one penalty shots where five chosen players from the team, one at a time, take a special shot against the oppositing goalie, while maintaining a certain distance and limited steps. Manhasset automatically won the strokes when Kate Navratil, Katherine Duvnjak and Samantha Iskyan all made their strokes and Manhasset goalie Isabel Scimeca had the game of her life and saved every single one of North Shore's strokes. This was one of the most exciting games in the history of Manhasset field hockey. Since Manhasset lost two one-goal games to North Shore in the regular season, this victory was especially sweet.
