On Saturday, November 9, the MHS Girls Swim Team competed in the Nassau County Team Championships. After a strong preliminary performance on Friday, the girls had their sights set on swimming even faster on Saturday at the finals. On Friday, Manhasset qualified 14 individual swims in the top 10 and all three relays. The team also had an additional 7 swims in the consolation finals (places 11-20). On Saturday, the top 20 individuals and relays compete in each event, all finishers scoring points towards their team total.
In the championship’s opening event, the 200 yd. medley relay team from Manhasset set the tone for what turned out to be a historic day in Manhasset Girls Swimming. The relay team of Grace Kenlon, Allegra Sodi, Megan Smith and Meredith Johnson finished third and set a new school record time of 1:51.96, also qualifying for the New York State Championships.
The Indians' regular season came to a close recently, but not before the boys locked up several more post-season honors to complete a highly successful campaign that brought an undefeated season as well as Division and Conference Championships. Manhasset headed into the post-season with high aspirations and battled it out with rival Wantagh High School for two weekends in a row—at both the Class Country Championships and the State Qualification race—coming up just short on both occasions, but achieving many milestones along the way.
Former-NBA All Star Kenny Anderson and Molloy High School graduate addressed the Church of St. Mary CYO fourth graders. The kids heard Anderson speak on how blessed with a God given talent which he developed to become an elite NBA player. He spoke on the commitment of bettering himself and his teammates and the importance of respecting yourself, your parents, your family, your team and your ball. Anderson then promptly drained some 3-point shots. Anderson commented that his finest accomplishment was earning his college degree from St. Thomas More College.
Thank you to Doc Brunetti and Tom McLaughlin for their efforts in engaging Anderson to come and speak to the athletes.
After an exciting end to their dual meet season, The Manhasset Girls Varsity Swim Team entered the first week of the post-season competing in the Division B Championship at the Nassau Aquatic Center.
On Friday, Nov. 1 the girls swim team competed against 9 other teams in Nassau’s Division B Championship. The Manhasset team carried some extra motivation, trying to win a second consecutive Division crown and ninth in 11 years.
The 2013 girl’s varsity tennis team, led by their senior co-captains, Courtney DiGia & Nicole Koskovolis, posted a 13-1 record and won the Conference I tennis championship.

Doubles players included seniors Liz Arenare, Amelia Conner, Hope Gillan, Caitlin Gleason, Jamie Lopez, and Stephanie Rohn, junior Courtney Connors, sophomore Brooke DiGia, freshman Lia Frankis, and eighth grader Madeline Clinton.
The end of the season has arrived and Manhasset’s football was looking to end on a good note. After an extremely overbearing season, Manhasset wanted it to end with a win in the books and a second win on the season. The Indians were playing a threatening opponent in the Floral Park Knights (4-3) with a very good defensive approach. Although Manhasset wasn’t going to make the playoffs, they tried shut out any momentum Floral Park had. Many fans came out to support the (1-6) team but the Indians were unable to come up with the win.

The 2013 season was a successful for the Saint Mary’s High School girls’ varsity tennis team. Following the 2012 NSCHSAA Class A Championship and undefeated season the Lady Gaels showed true championship quality tennis after graduating three top players and still achieving the team goal to get back to the league championship. The team lost the finals to St. John the Baptist, West Islip on Thursday, Oct. 17. “We are very proud of our team and all the hard work they put in this year. Our girls’ varsity team is in a good place with good young players like Angela Sbano, Carla Valenti and freshman Kelly Christ as we try to get back to the championship game for the fourth year in a row in 2014," said Coach Patrick Welsh.
The Manhasset Varsity Cross-Country team wrapped up its regular season last week at Bethpage State Park with an impressive win over a tough North Shore squad to finish as undefeated (13-0) Division and Conference champions. Over the past six seasons, the Indians have been tough to beat, with their only loss coming at the hands of the same North Shore team the previous fall, making this victory all the more satisfying. Senior captain Matt Weilep (17:08) led all scorers across the finish line of the 5K course as he has done all season, followed by Tommy Fruhauf (17:35), Carter Paterson (17:41), Willy McNamara (18:00), and co-captain John Marcucci (18:07) who claimed the fifth spot to seal the victory. Finishing right behind were Russell Silva (18:10), Riley Barnes (18:21), and Nicky Harris (18:23), who along with our top 5 scorers, earned individual All-Conference honors based on their performances throughout the season. Junior John Reddington (18:31), and seniors Brad Spilka (19:28) and Pranay Lunavat (19:53), all ran career bests to help Manhasset wrap up their 30th championship season.
