Another stellar spring sports season for Massapequa high school sports has come to an end. The boys’ volleyball squad, completing an undefeated season, took the Conference I Nassau County title. Meanwhile, both the boys and girls lacrosse teams took their season in the county finals, where they fell heartbreakingly close to winning their own championships.
Congratulations to veteran Massapequa runners Glenn Morse and Marty Schimmele, each of whom won trophies in the second annual Rocky’s Rockin’ 5 Kilometer Run, hosted by the Unqua PTA at the Unqua Elementary School on Unqua Road on May 23.
Last Thursday, the Massapequa boys volleyball team scored an impressive trifecta: They captured the Nassau County Conference I title, they finished the season undefeated and they did so in dramatic fashion, coming from behind to top Port Washington, 3-2.
The Penn Relays are the biggest relay carnival in the world. Over 10,000 athletes and 50,000 spectators converge in Philadelphia each year over the last weekend in April for what can be considered track and field’s “Super Bowl.” Each year hundreds of 4 x 400 meter relays teams plan all season with the goal of earning a medal and or a championship plaque during their trip to Philadelphia.

As the spring sports season heads into its final stretch, the Massapequa High School boys’ baseball squad, long a Nassau County powerhouse, has been playing just a notch above .500, while the boys’ volleyball team is going through an undefeated season.
Feel the adrenalin pumping, pressing, and pulsing through your veins. The world is twisting, turning, and tumbling before your eyes as you look through the small window of a cockpit. With a jolt, the plane stops with its nose facing the clouds and the aircraft slowly begins to fall backwards. To the average person this is a thrill-seeking move, an act of outright insanity. To an aerobatics pilot like David Windmiller this is just another everyday experience.
