Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano announces that the Nassau County Department of Parks, Recreation and Museums will reopen Eisenhower Park’s championship Red Course and two of its nine-hole golf courses on Friday, March 16.
The two 9-hole courses, at Christopher Morley Park in Roslyn/North Hills, (516) 571-8120 and Bay Park in East Rockaway, (516) 571-7242, have been closed since December; they will be open six days a week (Morley is closed Monday; Bay is closed Wednesday). The two other county nine-hole courses at Cantiague Park, (516) 571-7061 and North Woodmere Park, (516) 571-7814 remained open during the winter and will be open daily throughout the summer and fall months.
It seems like there is a new man overboard tracking device on the market. One of the biggest shortcomings of many of these electronic devices was the inability to track people in the water. Most of the more modestly priced beacons acted simply as alarms telling the crew that someone had fallen overboard. If you wanted to try to use any kind of electronic tracking system to relocate lost crew, the gear became more complicated and prices skyrocketed.
This is about to change as the relatively inexpensive technology behind the Automated Identification System (AIS) and Digital Selective Calling (DSC) are going to be officially incorporated into man-overboard tracking. This has been in the works for a long time, but because of the red tape involved, progress has been slow.
St. Mary’s fifth grade team won the 39th Annual St. Vincent de Paul 6th Grade Basketball Tournament with a 41–37 victory over the sixth grade team from St. Catherine Siena. This St. Mary’s team has won this tournament for the last three years as a third grade team, a fourth grade team and now as a fifth grade team. After a first round loss to Our Lady of Victory 40-35, the boys then beat St. Gertrude’s 43-32; that set up another match with OLV. The second game proved as competitive as the first, but the boys bested OLV 32-21 setting up the final with St. Catherine. Trailing after the first quarter and the half, the boys tied the game in the third quarter then outscored St. Catherine 14-10 giving the boys a 41-37 win.
Congratulations to John Mastando, Patrick Weber, Louis Perfetto, Duncan Barcelona, John Whelan, Timmy Kiggins, Joseph Mulholland, Jackson Cherry, Patrick Reilly, Jack Zaffiro and Alex “Rac City” Racanelli.
On Wednesday, Feb. 8, Friday, Feb. 10 and Saturday, Feb. 11, the Manhasset Swim Team competed in the Nassau County Team Championship.
On the first night of the County Championships, Wednesday, senior diver Peter Magliulo scored an 11 dive personal best to finish second and earn All-County honors. His score of 439.85 was over 50 points higher than his Divisional performance the previous week. It also qualified him for the NYS Championships in Buffalo, NY.
On Feb. 7, Tara Belinsky, James Carr, and Stephen Bourguet all left St. Anthony’s High School as County Champions, after guiding their teams to 3rd and 2nd place finishes, respectively. When they returned to the same venue the following week, each looked to improve upon their marks and qualify for the New York State Public High School Indoor Track & Field Championships to be held at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY on March 3.
On Saturday, February 4, the Manhasset Boys Swim Team competed in Nassau County’s Division C Championships. The Indians were ranked third of eight teams in Division C behind perennial powers Garden City and Long Beach. In any other season, the Indians would be trying their best to hold their third place spot. However, after a remarkable dual meet season, the MHS team set its sight on the unthinkable upset. To compete and beat either team would put this Manhasset team in uncharted waters.
In the meet’s opening event, 200 yd Medley Relay, The Manhasset team of Ed Ma, Andrew Chin, Damien Quinn and Justin Kim set a new school record, shattering the previous record of 1:46.34 (2011 Ed Ma, Andrew Chin, Damien Quinn, Billy Stathis) by swimming a record time 1:43.69. The relay team finished second and earned All-Division honors.
Maverik Lacrosse has announced that its founder and president John Gagliardi from Manhasset was inducted into the Long Island Metropolitan Lacrosse Hall of Fame last weekend in a formal induction ceremony held at the Huntington Hilton Hotel in Melville. The 2011 Hall of Fame inductees also included Greg Gattrano, Scott Craig, Tom Martello, Jim McIntee, Richie Meade, Blake Miller, Tracy Weiner Provenz, Sabrina Gallagher Roszko and Artie Seekamp.
“What an honor! Growing up in Manhasset, lacrosse has had a huge impact on my life since it was first introduced to me,” said Gagliardi. “My first game was in fifth grade playing on a Manhasset PAL team, I used to work on my skills down at the Village Green in Manhasset and I even played my last game professionally for the Long Island Lizards out at Hofstra, which is full circle in some ways for me. The one constant throughout my career has been Long Island lacrosse and all of the great coaches who inspired me both on and off the field. That’s why my goal will always be to help develop and grow the game of lacrosse nationally through my company Maverik Lacrosse and make it possible for kids everywhere to enjoy the same experiences I had playing lacrosse on Long Island.”
The biggest highlight of the season for the Manhasset wrestling team was their win against Bethpage; Bethpage is one of the top teams in the conference. Overall this season was a much more impressive, and very successful compared to last year’s team. As the season progressed the team began to get closer together and more confident, team record was 3 wins and 3 losses and last year was 1 win and 5 losses. Coach Sair says, “That he hopes that next season will be an even better one and they will keep progressing.”
Mike Fera, the team’s captain, directed the team throughout the year. Fera had an outstanding year placing, first in four individual tournaments that he entered. Overall he ranked fourth in the county, as well as one of the most prestigious players throughout Long Island. Within a few weeks there will be a tournament where players compete to be “all-county.” Mike Fera has a great chance to be one of those few selected people to be all-county. Fera is a monster on the mat and wouldn’t let up under any circumstances. Fera shows how a flashy, sharp player competes, while indicating how he diminishes his mistakes. Furthermore he is only a junior, which means he going to come back next year to lead the team to an exuberant place.
St. Mary’s boys fifth-grade team (Doyle) closed out their regular season with two impressive wins last weekend. On Saturday, St. Mary’s once again proved that a good defense beats a good offense by knocking St. Frances out of first place with a 22-14 victory. St. Mary’s guards (Jack Hannan, Peter Doyle, CJ Miller, Thomas Broderick and Kevin Doyle) badgered the St. Frances guards mercilessly throughout the game, never letting their opponents get into an offensive set. Charlie Young and Edward Arnold led the scoring with 8 points each. Edward also had 10 rebounds, and Derek Mulholland pulled down 7 boards. On Sunday, the boys defeated St. Anne’s 28-6. This time the intense defensive pressure was led by St. Mary’s front-liners (Victor D’Angelo, Drew Miller and Mike Stratford) who held their opponents to 2 points in the first half. With 12 points, Charlie Young led a balanced offensive attack. Jack Hannan, Matthew Pegno, Derek Mulholland, Greg Menke and Owen Connor also scored for St. Mary’s. Greg Menke was the leading rebounder with 9 boards. Kevin Doyle (the master of the old-school, classical bounce pass) had numerous assists, including two that would have made ESPN’s Top 10 if ESPN covered CYO basketball.
On Tuesday, Jan. 31, The MHS Boys Swim Team traveled to Hewlett to face the #1 preseason conference opponent Hewlett Turtles (5-2). The previous Friday, Jan. 27, the boys easily defeated Massapequa to improve to 6-0 and guarantee at least a tie for the conference crown. The Indians arrived at Hewlett with something to prove. The last time they were undefeated and won a conference crown was 2005. The last time they won at Hewlett was over 20 years ago.
On this day, Manhasset would not be denied. A determined group of seniors implored the team to maintain its intensity and swim with a sense of urgency. The team got out to an early lead. Once again, the Manhasset divers Peter, Chris and Ryan provided a tremendous lift by finishing 1st, 2nd and 3rd to open up a double-digit lead. Manhasset officially clinched the conference title by taking 1st and 2nd in the 400 Free Relay to win the meet 61-40 and finished the season undefeated at 7-0. Congratulations to the boys!
