Wheatley Students Receive Physical Education Honors

Selection based on exceptional performance in physical education, scholarship,
leadership qualities and service to their school community

The Wheatley School Physical Education Department announced that Kathleen McArdle and Robert Fallarino have been selected as Outstanding Physical Education students. Their selection was based on the following criteria: exceptional performance in physical education, scholarship, leadership qualities and service to their school community.

The Nassau Zone of the New York State Association honored McArdle and Fallarino for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance at an awards banquet held at the Crest Hollow Country Club.

McArdle is a dynamic young lady with boundless energy and a wide range of interests.  She has been a strong student throughout her high school years, with a 3.4 grade point average.

As a physical education student, McArdle’s skill development and attitude have been exemplary. She has maintained a high profile in a variety of school and community programs.

McArdle is involved with the Junior Catholic Daughters of America. Kathleen participates in varsity volleyball, basketball and track.

She is also the captain of the volleyball team. This year, Kathleen was selected to the All-Conference Volleyball team.  As a three-sport athlete she has made a strong contribution to Wheatley’s athletic program.

Fallarino is as outstanding a student as he is an athlete.  He has been a strong student throughout his high school years, with a 3.96 grade point average and membership in the National Honor Society.

In the physical education setting, Fallarino participates with enthusiasm, is considered a leader among his peers, and has achieved an outstanding record of accomplishment throughout his high school years. He is a four-year member of the Wheatley baseball program and a contributing member of the Long Island Astro’s baseball club, Island Garden basketball league and Westbury PAL basketball league.

In addition to his involvement in Wheatley athletics, Fallarino has pursued and committed himself to The Wildcat, Wheatley’s school newspaper, as a writer, the Inter-Cultural Unity Club, the Environmental Action Committee and the Future Business Leaders of America.

What Thanksgiving Means In Mineola

Thanksgiving is a holiday, a festival, celebration and food fest. Tradition says the first Thanksgiving feast was celebrated by pilgrims and Native Americans back in 1621 to give thanks for their harvest after a harsh winter. Over a century later, George Washington, the nation’s first president, issued a Thanksgiving proclamation in 1789.

 

Fast forward to 21st century—the modern day Thanksgiving has come a long way since then. What has not changed however is the shared elaborate meal consumed with family and  friends in the same spirit of celebration and giving thanks for the blessings.


Sports

Mineola High School student Mary Elizabeth Smith signed her letter of intent to attend Stetson University in the fall. She is receiving a partial athletic scholarship and will be a member of the Stetson Rowing team.  

 

Smith is an accomplished rower who has trained locally and competed nationally. She began her rowing career as a 10th grader and ranks 53 in her rowing classification. 


 

In their semifinals home playoff game, the 9-year-old Mineola Chiefs (7-2) shut out perennial power Seaford Broncos 21-0. 

 

The Chiefs defense, the strength of the team, was lights out, making gang tackles all over the field. The defensive line of Charlie Villa, Luigi Kaloudis, Michael Nygaard, Luke Ruiz, John Jochym, Zachary Bohringer, Johnny Kessler, Zakria Zulfiqar and Jack McCormack kept the pressure on Seaford’s offense all game long. The Linebackers John Viggiani and Nick Rios attacked the runners and finished off the Broncos.
