Pitcher Of The Week

Old Westbury freshman pitcher and Mineola native Tyler Kapela was named to the Skyline Conference Weekly Honor Roll. Kapela tossed five scoreless innings with five strikeouts to combine with two other relievers for his first career shutout in Old Westbury’s 16-0 win against Yeshiva. He took a no-hitter into the fifth inning before giving up a one-out single. Kapela is sporting a 2.25 ERA

with a 2-1 record in 12 innings on the season.

News

Last year, the Mineola Fire Department initiated an Adopt-A-Hydrant program to offer residents and businesses an opportunity to enhance their fire protection by providing a simple service to the village, caring for a fire hydrant. The MFD is looking for adopters once again.

North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth stopped by the latest meeting of the Williston Park Chamber of Commerce at the iHop in Williston Park.  Bosworth updated chamber members on the latest happenings in the Town including the proposed 2015 budget, the Veterans Advisory Committee, technology enhancements through the town website, mobile app and some new building department programs.  She also announced that the town will be partnering with the Small Business Saturday Coalition to promote the day on Nov. 29, to help businesses throughout the town.



Sports

After consecutive seasons of finishing runner-up in the men’s golf Player of the Year for the Skyline Conference, Christian Bleck of St. Joseph’s took home first place in a rather unlikely turn of events. 

 

After a herniated disc caused the Chaminade High School alum to miss every event after the first week of the season until the conference tournament, Bleck returned—without even having the luxury of practicing a full 18 holes—and competed with the best players the conference has to offer. 

Cross-Country Crowned Champs

The Mineola Mustang boys cross-country team won the division 4A championship recently at Bethpage State Park.  This is the first championship for the program since 1974, ending a 40-year championship drought. 

 

Mineola defeated Seaford, who also entered the undefeated in division competition, 38-20.  Overcoming rain and high winds throughout the race, many Mustangs ran personal records for the 5K in route to the victory.
