Canon U.S.A., Inc. announced that the five-member teams of students from Sachem High School and Chaminade High School are winners of the 2013 Long Island Envirothon at Old Bethpage Village Restoration in Old Bethpage.
The Long Island Envirothon is part of the North American Envirothon competition, which is sponsored by Canon U.S.A. and is one of North America’s largest environmental education competitions. Participating students learn about their natural surroundings as well as environmental conservation and sustainable development.
Both the Nassau and Suffolk County Soil & Water Conservation Districts coordinate the Long Island Envirothon in collaboration with the United States Department of Agriculture, Natural Resources Conservation Service and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.
“We are very proud of all the participating students in this year’s Envirothon,” said Bunji Yano, senior director and general manager, corporate communications division, Canon U.S.A. “All of us at Canon would like to congratulate the two winning teams and wish them the best of luck at the state competition this May.”
This year’s competition was focused on “Sustainable Rangeland Management.” More than 30 teams rotated between subject stations and answered in-depth questions pertaining to the topic. Students of the two top-scoring teams each received a $500 scholarship, and paid registration and transportation to compete in the New York State Envirothon held on May 30-31 at Morrisville State College in Morrisville, N.Y.

The Mineola Mustangs ended last year’s playoff run in a 34-6 drubbing from the West Hempstead Rams. Mineola was poised for another post season push in 2014 and it showed last week, with a 15-14 victory over the Rams in homecoming weekend.
With a slow start in the first half, Mineola (4-1) put their first points on the board in the second quarter with a field goal by senior Robert Lang. After a touchdown by the Rams (2-3), they headed into halftime 7-3.

Despite two goals from Liam Going, the BU11 Mineola FC squad fell to a relentless and talented Hota Panthers team at Soccer Park in Plainview on Sept. 6. Hota jumped out to a 4-0 lead before Going connected on his first tally, launching a 30-yard free kick that dropped over the Hota keeper. The Mineola striker’s second goal brought his team to within two goals of their opponent, but Hota scored several more goals in the second half in a strong performance. Mineola’s Nicholas Buffolino and Luke Sommese gave solid efforts for Mineola in the season-opener for both teams.
