Athlete Of The Week

 

Anthony Cueter

MHS Track And Field

 

 

Mineola High School Senior Anthony Cueter has grown into a leader on and off the track for the boys’ spring track and field team since he joined the team as a freshman.  Cueter is a consistent scorer for the team in the 400m dash, 200m dash, and 400 intermediate hurdles.  The event he enjoys the most is the 4x400 relay because of the length of the race and the fact he gets to compete with his teammates as a unit.

 

Cueter achieved All-Conference honors in the winter when he was a part of the Conference Champion 4x400 team.  He’s looking to earn All-Division honors and possibly qualify for the state championship meet to be held in Syracuse the first weekend of June.

 

Cueter’s a big reason the team achieved an 11-3 conference record this season.  He hopes to continue his running career collegiately when he attends SUNY Fredonia in the fall.

 

Cueter also served as a role model in the classroom and community as well. On April 26 he teamed with co-captain Dylan Bestler to organize a track meet for the middle school students as part of their senior project.

 

Cueter and Bestler taught the younger students how important it is to be physically active every day in order to fight childhood obesity, a growing problem in our country.  The seniors also exposed the students to track and field and showed them how much fun it can be since there is no track and field team at the middle school level.    


News

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.
