Massapequa Girls Tennis Team plays “Think Pink” match to support efforts against the disease

On Friday, Oct. 12, the Massapequa girls tennis team played their last regular season match against East Meadow. While this match was significant in that is marked the end of the Chiefs season, it also symbolized a greater feat in the team’s fight against breast cancer. With one of every eight women expected to develop breast cancer during their lifetime, the tennis team took it upon themselves to help combat this debilitating disease.

In order to raise money and awareness for breast cancer, the girls dedicate one match every year in their efforts to help find a cure. For the third year in a row, the Massapequa girls tennis team held their annual “Think Pink” event with the match against East Meadow.

Team wants another shot at state championship

It would be easy for Steve Mariano, head coach of the Massapequa boys volleyball team and his players to stop and admire all they have accomplished. After all, the team has won three consecutive county championships, and last year, Massapequa captured the Long Island championship and advanced all the way to the state finals, before losing to McQuaid Jesuit, a private school in Rochester. However, that’s not what champions do. So, instead of being the tiniest bit complacent, Mariano says the team is working very hard to get back to the state championship and capture the title, which eluded them last year.

“Our goal is to get back upstate and get another shot at McQuaid,” said Mariano. “We know we can beat them. Losing last year has left us with a goal.”

Former students give legendary coach praise and accolades at ceremony

On Friday, Oct. 5, Massapequa High School unveiled a newly renovated, state of the art wrestling room in honor of former head coach, Al Bevilacqua. The room was dedicated to Bevilacqua, who has almost 35 years of experience as both an educator and coach in Massapequa schools. Many of Bevilacqua’s former students and wrestlers joined in honoring their former coach, as did members of his family, local residents, school board members, and other school officials. Those who spoke at the ceremony talked about Bevilacqua’s coaching ability, and also commented about his character, ethics, and love of education. Bevilacqua is credited with helping transform Massapequa High School wrestling into the recognized program that it is today, and many of his former students would also say that his impact extends far beyond wrestling.

“If you had him as a teacher, you would understand why this wrestling room is being dedicated to him,” said Gary Mims, Massapequa’s former wrestling coach of many years who succeeded Bevilacqua. “I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for him.”
