The Blue United earned a tie for the top team on Long Island for their age group with an 8-0-1 record while drawing a 0-0 tie with the other co-champions. The six Manhasset girls are Ariana Aliprantis, Maggie Beresheim, Lauren Martelli, Halle Palmedo, Caroline Smith and Oliva Wesch. The girls have been playing soccer together since kindergarten. They all formerly played for Manhasset Five Star and LIFC before paying under the EMSC banner this fall.

Presenting the third biennial ceremony since its inception in 2007, the Manhasset High School Booster Club Athletic Hall of Fame continued making a significant and positive impact on the entire town. In a sometimes emotional, sometimes hilarious, but always meaningful evening, over three hundred attendees were clearly delighted to witness the Hall’s membership grow from 12 to 17 and also extend recognition to the 1986 New York State Champion Boys Basketball Team. The five newest inductees were indeed a sparkling group—two women who rank among the greatest all-around athletes in school history (Carol Rainson Rose ’82 and Christine Kenny Goettelmann ’91), a pair of Manhasset’s longest tenured coaches who were also outstanding multi-sport athletes as students (Bruce Minerley ’65 and Bob Rule ’67) and the dynamic hoopster who led the Indians to their only state basketball championship – and also high jumped 6 inches over his head (Bob Gordon ’87).
New Booster Club President Tricia Glynn instituted a number of excellent innovations which were hailed by those present. The site was moved to the gym which was gaily decorated with over-sized orange and blue balloons surrounding the dozen tables on the floor (for honorees and guests) while fans crowded the stands. La Coquille catered the occasion with first-rate hors d’oeuvres and local resident Dawn McCormick provided professional photography to memorialize the event.
With Patrick Reilly and his talents in South Beach, St. Mary’s fifth grade team 7 squared off with a tough St. Philip Neri Northport team and emerged with a 25–12 win. Alex Racanelli grabbed 11 rebounds and Patrick Weber snared seven. Strong board play bolstered by pressure defense by Jackson Cherry, Louis Perfetto, Joseph Mulholland, Michael Farrell, Steven Vlahakis and John Whelan supported by scoring from Steven Salerno, Nicky Quinn and Timmy Kiggins helped run the record to 4-0.
St. Mary’s seventh grade boys won two games over the weekend to run their record to 5-0. They beat St. Edward 50-21. Brendan Barry and Najon Dorsanvil each had 12 points in the game. In the second game, Christian Andriotis was the high scorer with a season-high 13 points. Barry added 10 and Danny Hedberg had 8 points and a team-high 12 assists.
