While schools across Massapequa prep for back-to-school, one classroom at McKenna Elementary School may receive a once-in-a-lifetime designer facelift, thanks to an essay written by fourth-grade student Matthew Jewell.
The St. Kilian CYO Yankees boy's 13-year-old baseball team capped off their summer season with a three game sweep of the thirteen year old Rookie League Babe Ruth Playoffs.

The Yankees used the playoffs as a chance to avenge their four regular season losses.
