In recent years, the Sachem Cherokees set the gold standard for sportsmanship among girls soccer teams as the Cherokees won seven LIJSL Sportsmanship Awards. They were coached by Leon Chetuck, who is now coaching the Sachem Eagles, competing in Boys-Under-19, Division 1.
A new millennium and now a new decade has produced another girls team known for its sporting play. The Massapequa Lil Spirit have won four consecutive LIJSL Sportsmanship Awards and also received three silver chevrons and one bronze chevron. The Lil Spirit is not so Lil anymore as they are now Girls-Under-16, Division 2 and are in their seventh year of LIJSL play. Nice girls finish first as they have won three LIJSL division titles and have been crowned tournament champions in East Meadow, Cape May and in the Lehigh Valley.
Youngsters and their parents took advantage of the beautiful weekend last week and ice skated at the Marjorie R. Post Community Park, at the corner of Unqua Road and Merrick Road in Massapequa.
The skate house has a wood burning fireplace, rest area and snack bar. Ice skates can be rented and there are three two-hour sessions daily supervised by skating town employees.
Throughout the year the park offers a number of recreational venues for tennis, swimming, basketball, lawn parties, a community center for meetings and a softball field and more.
The park is named for the late Marjorie R. Post, a Massapequa resident and the first Town of Oyster Bay Councilwoman.
There are many constants of excellence in Massapequa High School sports. Among them are year in and year out stellar performances by the girls basketball squad.

Jeff also received his second Gold Glove award for sparkling defense in centerfield. Players from the past were honored as Jeff Saviano and Lou Roseto were inducted into the team’s hall of fame.
With the hint of snow in the air, but fortunately several hours before it hit the ground in the big December 19th snowstorm, several athletes from the Massapequa’s created a storm of their own with their award winning performances in the 22nd annual Carter, DeLuca, Farrell & Schmidt Ho Ho Ho Holiday 5 Kilometer Run through the streets of Bethpage.
