5th Grade Basketball Team Wins Second Tourney
Corpus Christi Boys Fifth-Grade Basketball Team won its second tournament of the season. This time against a very strong St. Vincent's of Elmont Team (36-31). The difference in this game was the foul shooting of Corpus Christi, which shot 6 of 9 from the line. St. Vincent's had a taller squad, but Corpus Christi used quick passing and drove hard to the hoop to draw fouls on the home team of St Vincent's which kept them in foul trouble most of the game and Corpus Christi going to the line.
Mustang Post-Season Fever
Three Mineola High School winter sports teams enjoyed not only strong seasons, but earned the honor of competing in the playoffs. Leading the pack was the Girls Varsity Bowling Team, which was Nassau County Champions and went on to the state tournament. The Mustang Kegglers finished seventh in the state championships, the highest finish for a Nassau County Team in many years. Coach Bill Smith's team consisted of seniors Joanna Errico, Alison Conti and Melissa Purdy, along with juniors Christina Schulze, Lauren Anderson and sophomore Jennifer Pirrone. And Schulze had a day to remember. She set state records for individual, three-game and six-game scores.
