Mineola HS Boy’s Winter Track Takes Conference Championships By Storm

Runners place high in multiple events, garner All Conference honors

Mineola High School’s Boy’s Winter Track team turned in a solid performance at the 2013 Conference VI Championships held at St. Anthony’s High School on Jan. 17. Conference VI includes nine teams (Mineola, Valley Stream North, Roosevelt, Oyster Bay, Friends Academy, Wheatley, Clarke, Locust Valley, and Cold Spring Harbor.)  

Mineola placed second overall and had several outstanding performances.

Senior Captain Freddy Lang was a triple threat heavy-hitter, receiving All Conference honors in three separate events.  Lang was the 600-meter conference champion with an official time of 1:2, and was All Conference in the 3200 meter and 4x800 meter relay team.  

Senior Captain Brad Coleman dominated in all three jumping events, also receiving All Conference recognition three times.  Coleman was the Conference VI Champion in the Long Jump with his impressive mark of 19 feet 10 inches.

He also placed 3rd in the triple jump with a distance of 39 feet, 8 1/2 inches and second place in the high jump.  

Captain Anthony Caruso led Mineola in the shot put, receiving All Conference recognition with a third place finish, recording an impressive distance of 38 feet 11 inches. Captain Dylan Bestler was All Conference in the 600 meters finishing second overall.

Robby Lang added additional points to the team’s score with his 3rd place finish in the 1000 meters. He earned All Conference recognition and is one of the underclassmen with tremendous potential and a bright future with the Mineola Track program.

The 4x800 meter relay team of Joe Mulder, Jake Tavernite, Freddy Lang and Robby Lang were conference champions, placing first overall in the relay competition.  The team came from behind to take the lead and secure an exciting victory over some of the best relay teams in the Conference.

The debate over New York State Common Core standards continues, with students from the Mineola School District showing a mild resistance to the exams.

 

According to the New York State Allies for Public Education, Mineola had some of the lowest numbers, with eight students opting out of the English Language Arts test. However, not a single Mineola student missed the math test. In East Williston, the opt out rates were 75 students in ELA and 60 in math.

Gitangalie Palombo, an Elmont yoga instructor, will open Fly High Dance and Fitness on the second floor at 111 E. Jericho Tpke. after her plan was approved by the Mineola Village

Board last week. She expects to open by January 2015. Sherwin Williams occupies the main floor.

 

“We want to be a great addition to the community,” she said. “I hope Fly High brings a new flare to the area.”

The New York Cosmos hosted the Mineola Athletic Association’s Soccer Club recently for its penultimate fall 2014 home game. More than 140 members of the MAA soccer club and their families came out on a chilly October evening to show their love of the game. Twenty-two Mineola boys and girls had the honor of escorting the New York Cosmos and Ottawa Fury players onto the field in the traditional “Walk of Champions.”

 

The Mineola spirit must have inspired the home team, as spectators enjoyed the exciting 2-1 Cosmos victory, with the game-winning goal coming in stoppage time.


As a current member of the Mineola High School Varsity Soccer team, senior, Catherine Cunningham has been dominating the scoring for the Mustangs.  She has 12 goals and two assists in the last seven games. 

 

In her last week of play alone, she amassed six goals in just three games. As a captain for the last two years, Cunningham has been an All-Conference and All-Class player, leading her team to two victories so far this season.
