What an amazing year. Building off last season’s undefeated dual meet record of 5-0, the coaching staff of Joe Lennon, Kelly Bergin, Katherine Byrns, Kristin Augenthaler, and Matt Carrozzo were optimistic about this summer. With lanes more crowded than ever before, we needed a new plan of attack for our practices. We spent our time teaching and training our younger swimmers.
Coach Kelly working tirelessly in Lane 1, teaching the future core of the team and teaching body position through the use of all four strokes. Her time and dedication paid off with some remarkable swimmers stepping up and contributing in our championship weekend. Kelly, along with her sister Michaela, is also taking time to see every guppy in the program and give swimming instruction. This is helping create a base of swimmers for years to come.
On July 16 five Manhasset teenage boys began a 10-day trek across the beaches of the South Shore of Long Island to raise money and awareness for Parkinson’s Disease. Last summer Patrick Love, Joe Nassirian, Hayes Brown, Chris Jeffrey and Nick Fera raised almost $20,000 for the Michael J. Fox Foundation with their First Annual South Shore Walk, besting their stated goal of raising $10,000. This year the boys upped the ante to $25,000 and increased the walk to 115 miles by including Coney Island.
They depended on the hospitality of friends and relatives for sleeping arrangements, food and water. Once again, Super Runners Shop in Huntington donated a pair of sneakers for each boy along with some snacks and foot gel to ease their blisters and tired feet.
