Wheatley Field Hockey Named Scholar Athlete Champs

Mineola residents Taylor Keenan, Jane Kim, Mikayla Lucio and Victoria Roldan were part of the Wheatley School’s varsity girls field hockey team, which has been recognized by the New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA) for academic excellence and has been declared New York State Champions in its scholar/athlete recognition award program. This program, which started 23 years ago, recognizes athletic teams from across New York State for the exemplary academic performance of its team members.  Based on a composite of the grade point averages among team members, team champions are selected for each varsity sport from those high schools across New York State that enter the competition.

 

For the recently completed 2013-14 fall sports season, Wheatley’s unweighted GPA of 97.308 is the highest GPA in the sport of field hockey. 

 

Coached by Kristin Adamski and Kristina DePalma, the team consists of Captain Keenan, Kim, Lucio and Roldan along with captains Samantha Siegler, Samantha Palazzolo, Julie Rajman, Allie Schreiber and teammates Farrah Siegler, Perri Schreiber, Namita Reddy,

Amanda Sivin, Nicole Degliomini, Jenna Heller, Jessica Sakeni, Hannah Frantz, Lauren Frantz, Carly Brensilber, Marion Wolloch, Morgan Silverman, Jamie Chusid and Stephanie Kazhiloti.

 

The team will be recognized at the East Williston School District Board of Education meeting on Jan. 27.

Sports

The Mineola Mustangs ended last year’s playoff run in a 34-6 drubbing from the West Hempstead Rams. Mineola was poised for another post season push in 2014 and it showed last week, with a 15-14 victory over the Rams in homecoming weekend.

 

With a slow start in the first half, Mineola (4-1) put their first points on the board in the second quarter with a field goal by senior Robert Lang.  After a touchdown by the Rams (2-3), they headed into halftime 7-3.

FC Mineola Stumbles Against Hota

Despite two goals from Liam Going, the BU11 Mineola FC squad fell to a relentless and talented Hota Panthers team at Soccer Park in Plainview on Sept. 6.  Hota jumped out to a 4-0 lead before Going connected on his first tally, launching a 30-yard free kick that dropped over the Hota keeper. The Mineola striker’s second goal brought his team to within two goals of their opponent, but Hota scored several more goals in the second half in a strong performance.  Mineola’s Nicholas Buffolino and Luke Sommese gave solid efforts for Mineola in the season-opener for both teams.
