The Manhasset High School Boys’ Varsity Baseball team clinched the Conference A-IV championship with an 11-5-1 conference record. The boys ended the season strongly by winning eight of their last nine games, including sweeps in their last two series against Lynbrook and Great Neck North. The boys’ play throughout the season showed their endurance and versatility, and several dramatic come-from-behind wins demonstrated their drive to win. Head Coach Brian Corbo and Assistant Coach Chris Keen are readying the team for what they hope will be a strong playoff run.
In addition to the strong team play, several individual players received Conference A-IV post-season awards: James Carr and Tyler Juliano were recognized as All County, while All Conference recognition went to Dan Connolly, Ryan Lennon, Ryan Murray and Lukas Pracher. All League honors went to Charles Mack, and Coach Brian Corbo received Conference Coach of the Year.

The North Shore Kayak Club has scheduled its first meeting of the year for Tuesday, May 15, to be held at the Port Washington Public Library at 7:30 p.m. The group will meet in the Hagedorn Room, located on the library’s top floor.
Now in its seventh year, the club (formerly named the Twin Pines Kayak Club) is comprised of adults who are recreational, flat-water paddlers - not white-water paddlers. Kayakers of all skill levels are welcome. The club members share an enthusiastic appreciation of the beautiful, local waters, fresh air and the camaraderie of paddling together. Members reside primarily in the Town of North Hempstead. Approximately one-half of the club’s trips originate in either Manhasset Bay or Hempstead Harbor, with the other half launching from other points on Long Island and other waterways around the New York metropolitan area.
Manhasset’s High School Crew team traveled to Saratoga Springs, New York for the 15th Annual Saratoga Invitational sprint races in late April. Competing against more than 50 club teams throughout the New England area and Canada in one of the largest springtime high school racing events in the country, Manhasset came home with 19 Medals — 10 Gold, 2 Silver and 7 Bronze — for the 24 races they competed in more than two days of racing.
As you walk or drive along Shore Road, you will start seeing sailboats and motorboats out on the bay. Shipyards are busy this time of year, as are boat owners, who have waited patiently all winter long, dreaming of warm weather sailing. Well, the time to get the boat ready is here, and what a fun time it is. If you happen to stop by a boatyard on a weekend, you will be greeted with happy boat owners preparing their boats, catching up with other boat owners, and eager to get their boats launched. Yes, this is a very busy time down at the waterfront and it won’t even hit its peak until May. But, in the meantime, skippers and crew need to prepare not only their boats but their crew. Emergencies occur even to well-prepared crews. What if a picture-perfect sail at one moment turns into an emergency the next? Are you ready?
Sail-World.com writer Des Ryan has some terrific information that bears repeating for our readers. According to Sail-Word, it is truly remarkable how often a Coast Guard is called when a skipper is incapacitated and the partner cannot handle the boat. With much cruising carried out by couples, it is vital that the non-sailing partner knows enough to get the boat back to shore in case of an emergency. Check out the vital skills below and rate your boat – you may be surprised by what you find – and if it isn’t what you want, there still is a time before the season begins to correct any deficiency.

Head Coach Hugo Guardado-Henriquez reported that, “Eight of Manhasset’s 16 boats that competed in the 1,500-meter races on the Schuylkill River had first-place finishes to win their races, and the team also posted six second-place finishes.” He added that, “Needless to say, our coaching staff is very pleased with the team’s racing results overall and with continued hard work we are on our way to a competitive spring season.”
