New CYO Coordinator For Corpus Christi

Corpus Christi Parish announced the appointment of Ken Solosky as the new coordinator for Corpus Christi CYO. Solosky is a lifelong Mineola resident and an alumni of the Corpus Christi CYO program. He was the Corpus Christi Parish 2014 CYO Role Model Award winner.

 

“Some of my best memories growing up were of CYO basketball and I welcome the opportunity to continue a great program for today’s youth,” said Solosky.

 

Corpus Christi will continue their very successful children’s basketball clinic beginning Dec. 6 and running for eight consecutive Saturdays. The clinic, for boys and girls in kindergarten through the second grade, emphasizes basketball fundamentals as well as fun. The kindergarten, first- and second-grade program is a clinic and teams are not formed. 

 

“The clinic is designed to introduce boys and girls to the great game of basketball,” Solosky said. Using volunteers, older CYO players as well as “guest” coaches, the focus is on fun and developing the skills necessary to play basketball. The program uses smaller baskets and stations of different foundation skills and drills.

 

Corpus Christi will also be sponsoring boys and girls teams in the third through 12th grade. These teams play competitive basketball against other parishes throughout Nassau County. Practices are held once a week with a game over the weekend.

 

“The league play is a lot of fun and really brings out the competitive spirit in many of our players” stated Solosky. “It is a great way to play sports in a low pressure environment.”

 

Girls basketball begins in late August and boys basketball begins in October.

 

This year, the Corpus Christi CYO has moved to online registration. Anyone interested in registering their child can go to corpuschristicyo.org. For additional information please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

The Mineola School Board will hold a public hearing on the much-debated New York State veterans exemption on Thursday, Nov. 6 at 6:30 p.m. in the Willis Avenue School. It is expected the board will either approve or disapprove the tax exemption during its regular meeting at 7 p.m.

When votes go to the polls next week on Tuesday, Nov. 4 to vote on the Town of North Hempstead’s 2nd Council District seat, candidate Bonnie Parente feels her stance on the building department is what voters will remember when casting their choice. The 2nd council district post is currently held by Peter Zuckerman, a former East Hills trustee. He was appointed to the seat in January to replace Thomas Dwyer, who resigned last year.

 

“That’s the major issue I heard about when I knocked on doors,” she said. “No matter where I am, I could be at the Herricks Community Center or the Albertson Pasta Dinner and

predominately what people ask about is how to fix the building department.”


Sports

Samantha Pastore

Samantha Pastore, senior and third-year varsity player, is also co-captain of the currently undefeated (11-0) Mineola Girls Varsity Volleyball team. She is an outside hitter and is often recognized in games by starting rallies with her quick thinking and nimble feet. She earns 20 percent of the team’s points and averages four aces per match.

The Mineola Mustangs varsity football team fell to the Seaford Vikings last week 27-21, missing their chance to tie the top seeds Locust Valley and Roosevelt’s 6-1 Nassau conference IV record.

 

After tying the game in the second half and having the opportunity to capitalize on Seaford’s failed extra-point kick on their final touchdown, the Viking’s senior wide receiver/defensive back Bobby Buell knocked away a pass from Mineola senior quarterback James Gerstner to senior wide receiver Brian Smith in the end-zone with 57 seconds left
