A week after competing in the world’s largest regatta in Boston, Manhasset’s crew team traveled to Philadelphia to race in the 41st annual Head of the Schuylkill Regatta. This 2.5-mile head race along the scenic Schuylkill River is a two-day event that included approximately 5,800 rowers competing in more than 1,300 boats from 23 different states as well as from England, Canada and Australia.
With a weekend that started with a raw first day of racing that included freezing temperatures, sleet and snow, thankfully the wintry weather passed overnight and Sunday provided a clear day for the high school races.
Manhasset High School senior athletes who have recently signed to play at the collegiate level. The schools include:
J. Yunakov – Boston College
K. Miller – UCLA
H. Majorana – University of Maryland
T. Wenk – Franklin and Marshall
The Manhasset Girls Swimming and Diving Team competed in the Nassau County Team Championships held at the Nassau Aquatic Center on Nov. 2, Nov. 4, and Nov. 5. The MHS team followed up a strong Division meet with an incredible showing at the County Championships. This performance included two new school records, seven All-County recipients, seven All-Conference recipients, five State Qualifiers and a highlight reel of lifetime best performances. The team finished third overall in Nassau County scoring 342 points (behind Garden City and Bellmore Merrick).
Manhasset High School’s Crew team sent three varsity boats to compete in the 47th Head of the Charles Regatta in Boston in late October. This storied regatta has been an autumn tradition since 1965, and Manhasset’s team has participated in the world’s largest regatta for the past seven years.
Competing in the Youth Fours Women event, Manhasset’s boat placed third out of 76 competitors, crossing the finish line with a time of 19 minutes and 5 seconds, and proudly brought home one of the five medals presented in their category. In doing so, they also secured one of the 38 coveted spots to compete in this event next year. Competing for Manhasset in this boat were two seniors: Justine Yunakov (coxswain, co-captain) and Katharine Frost (co-captain), two juniors: Clare McIntee and Dagmara Lapins, and sophomore Keagan Hanley.
The Boys Varsity team completed its competitive team schedule this past weekend with a second place finish at the Nassau County B Championships at Bethpage State Park. The Indians finished only 10 points behind a tough Garden City squad, just missing a berth to the State Championships next weekend. The Indians’ fifth place overall finish marks the fourth consecutive year that Manhasset has placed in the top five programs in all of Nassau County, an impressive feat for a small school.
Lead the Way Fund organizers are preparing for the largest turnout yet at their next event, “A Run Down Hero Highway,” a 4.5-mile run/walk fundraiser held in Lower Manhattan. Scheduled for Sunday, Nov. 20, this family-friendly day starts with a “fun run” along Hudson River Park that includes Battery Park and the World Trade Center, always in sight of the Statue of Liberty. A big celebration at the Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers will follow the run.
The annual Run Down Hero Highway attracts the biggest crowd of all Lead the Way events and well over 1,000 participants are expected this year. Funds raised are directed to disabled U.S. Army Rangers and the families of Rangers who have died, have been injured or are currently serving in harm’s way around the world.
The Manhasset Booster Club invites you to the Third Biennial Manhasset Booster Club Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony.

The Hall of Fame was created to honor those Manhasset High School athletes who have left a permanent mark on the Manhasset community and the Manhasset school system.

The Manhasset Boys Varsity Cross Country team ran to a convincing victory this past weekend at Bethpage State Park to win their fourth consecutive Conference III Championship. The Indians braved cold temperatures and poor course conditions to score 32 points, finishing ahead of squads from Hewlett (58) and Lynbrook (106).
Stephen Bourguet claimed his first major invitational victory of the season with a first place finish in the Varsity “G” race of the prestigious Manhattan Invitational on Sunday, Oct. 9. Teammate Charlie Morris finished 5th, to give Manhasset one of the top 1-2 finishes of the day on the legendary Van Cortland Park 4km [2.5mi] course.
The storied course challenges runners, as they must traverse the “back hills” - nearly a mile of up and down terrain along narrow, root-ridden trails. For many cross country runners who grew up in the region, one’s time at Van Cortland has always been a telling signal to how they measured up. Despite the course’s own challenges, this day also brought 86 degree temperatures as an added obstacle.
In a sport known for blocks, bumps, spikes and digs—it can safely be said that the Manhasset Varsity Girls volleyball team “digs” its seniors.
As in the tradition in Manhasset sports, the last regular season home game becomes that team’s senior night—and so it was on Monday night Oct. 17. Rivals for the game was JFK Bellmore, who are ranked third in the conference.
