Girls Bowling Team Shuts Down Roslyn and Great Neck S.
The girls varsity and JV bowling teams have turned in some impressive wins lately. Recent wins over Roslyn and Great Neck South have the Lady Mustangs in playoff contention. Coach Bill Smith has submitted the following highlights:
On Jan. 6 the varsity bowling team shut out Roslyn 11-0, led by Jennifer Pirrone's 202 game. The JV team of Sam Didrikson, Becca Madson, Hilary Singer, Melissa Purdy and Lauren Landy rallied to win two of three games, including a 2-pin victory in the third game to win the match.
On Jan. 13, the girls bowling teams recorded 8-3 victories over defending county champions Great Neck South. Senior and first-year bowler Lauren Scala threw her season high 173 as the Mustangs recorded a new conference record of 2005 pins over a three game series. Another first year bowler, sophomore Becca Madson, also threw her highest game, a 140, to help the JV to the victory. The win virtually assures the Mustangs a berth in the County Championships at Garden City Lanes in February. The next conference match was last week against Carle Place. The results were not available by press time. Stay tuned.
By a score of 107 to 77, the girls varsity gymnastics squad had a big win over Hewlett. Michelle Buchalo and Jill Tognelli did a great job all around. High scores for the meet included Sarah Helmich on bars with a 4.3, Kerrin Hughes on beam with a 6.8, and Diane Macedo on vault with a 7.4.
