Chaminade Grad An Ivy League Star

Chaminade High School graduate Thomas Roulis, a student and athlete at Dartmouth College, was recently named the Ivy League Athlete of the Week.

 

The first weekly award for a Big Green player this year came after the first week of play, when senior outfielder Jeff Keller was pegged as the Ivy co-Player of the Week on March 4. Then on March 25, sophomore right-hander Duncan Robinson took home the Pitcher of the Week honor.

 

Roulis recently helped Dartmouth take three of four from the division-leading Yale Bulldogs to climb back to within a game of the top of the standings. He was instrumental in two non-conference wins during the week as the Big Green defeated Boston College on the road, 2-1, then rallied for an 8-7 walkoff win the following day against Holy Cross.

 

Roulis went 10-for-26 (.385) in the six games with a double, triple, five runs and five RBIs. He began the week with three hits against the Eagles, including a double while sparking a two-run first inning with a one-out single before coming around to score. The next day, versus the Crusaders, Roulis drove in the first Big Green run with a single, then served as the catalyst for the four-run ninth by leading off with a bunt single.

 

Roulis continued his hot-hitting when Yale came to town, collecting two hits in both ends of the doubleheader, one of which was a first-inning RBI triple followed by an errant throw to third that allowed him to score to start a 12-3 rout in game two. He finished the game with three RBIs.

 

Roulis continued his flawless play at second base, fielding 35 chances without an error to extend his errorless streak to 39 games and 169 total chances dating back to the 2012 campaign. His contributions at the keystone have helped Dartmouth rank fourth nationally with a .982 fielding percentage this season.

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.”


Sports

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.
