Congratulations to the 2011 Varsity Boys Lacrosse Team and coaching staff for another winning season. It was announced on June 16 that two players have been named High School All-Americans: Bobby Duvnjak and Frank Morelli. Coach Bill Cherry and staff released the following list of team and individual awards.
When you think of a Manhasset High School girls’ varsity sport, you likely think of lacrosse. However, there are alternatives to lax at Manhasset High. Specifically, sports that offer other competitive female athletes with high expectations and a strong work ethic the chance to one day play at the collegiate level. The sport I’m referring to is golf.
The Manhasset Girls’ Varsity Golf program has seen many successes in its first three seasons. Since the program’s inaugural season, in 2009, the team has made the playoffs three consecutive years, and improved scores each year. The team finished in seventh place (out of 16 teams) in Nassau County its first season and in sixth place the next year. This season, the team finished in third place with an adjusted average of 244 for 5 starters on a 9-hole course. With an 8-2 record, all 11 girls have proven their team is ready for the next step.
The Manhasset Boys Track and Field and Cross Country Program completed a three-season sweep of 2nd place finishes with their runner-up placement in this spring’s Nassau County Track and Field Championships at Cold Spring Harbor High School. The Indians, who placed second to Great Neck South in the fall cross-country season, finished behind Valley Stream North in the winter and spring seasons. This season’s successful campaign was fueled in large part by the contributions of the team’s three captains – junior middle-distance runner Travis Burger, junior distance runner Charlie Morris, and sophomore distance runner Stephen Bourguet. The trio, which has carried the team all season, scored 55.5 of 62 total team points throughout the two-day competition.

Now that Memorial Day is behind us, there is a ton of activity on the bay. This is what we have been waiting for all through the long, snowy, cold winter months. So get ready for a full season of great sailing, outdoor dinners, and long strolls along the shore as the sun is setting. Aren’t we lucky to live in a waterfront community?
On Saturday, June 11, the North Shore YC held their 22nd Annual Day Race. NSYC’s PRO, Ron Fink, was kind enough to share his report: By the time of the start at 10:50 a.m., the winds were 16-22, gusting to 30 out of the southeast with a good three to six-foot short chop. Only one of the 15 entries decided not to come to the race and another decided to drop out before the start. The race courses, 19.5 miles for the spinnaker boats and 14 for the non-spinnaker boats, proved to be too much for some as four racers dropped out for various reasons. The boats that prevailed had some exciting racing, with one boat bragging that they saw boat speed of 16.4 knots surfing down a wave. The winners were William Purdy (CIYC) Whirlwind in Spinnaker and Art Karpf (Glen Island YC) Snow Goose in Non-spinnaker. The best performance trophy was won by Whirlwind, with the best performance by a NSYC entry won by Charlie Cannam, Engarde in the Spinnaker Division. The other trophy winners were Marc Epstein, Vision, second in Non-spinnaker and Bob Schwartz, Nordlys, third in spinnaker.
