Manhasset’s High School Crew Team concluded a successful spring rowing season by competing in two Nationals Championship events.
Both Nationals regattas were qualifying events. The team’s performance in NY State Championships qualified 7 Manhasset boats to compete in this year’s Scholastic Rowing Association of America’s (SRAA) National Championship Regatta held on Cooper River in New Jersey in late May. This same performance at NYS Champs enabled 3 Varsity boats to earn one of the bids given to the New York region to compete in the Junior National regatta held in Tennessee in June.
Leave it to the junior sailors of Manhasset Bay to make a statement about our environment. The junior sailors from surrounding clubs came together for a day of racing at Manhasset Bay Yacht Club to raise funds and increase awareness of the environmental conditions of our bay and Long Island Sound. Cameron Okie, Summer Outreach Coordinator, Save the Sound, spent some time at both yacht clubs’ junior sailing programs teaching the young sailors about the environment. Then, as a conclusion to his series of visits, the sailors from the junior yacht clubs gathered at Manhasset Bay for the finale.
Visitors to Christopher Morley Park may be witnessing the dawn of a new tennis experience. As part of Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano’s initiative to launch public/private partnerships, Christopher Morley Tennis, a private club owned and directed by local pro Cory Parr, is nearing the final stages of construction.
“We won the bid to build a tennis center at Christopher Morley Park,” Parr said.
The facility will be housed on the south end of the park, at 500 Searingtown Road in Roslyn. Parr had originally hoped to open in September, “but realistically right now we are guaranteeing a January 1 opening,” he said, adding that he may be ready for a “soft opening” with five courts in October or November.

Manhasset’s varsity baseball team appears to be shining within the past couple of years. The team’s recent success lies largely in the hands of a few people. Two captains, two more seniors, and four juniors hold the destiny of the team. Coach Corbo anticipates that this upcoming season has the potential to be one of the best in school history.
Coach Corbo has already named his two captains for the team next year: Matt Basso and Ryan Lennon. Basso has been on the team since his freshmen year, and recently received an All-Conference award. Basso is going to be one of the big hitters for the Indians next year.
