Sports Briefs

Hurricanes Fall To Raiders

Dominick Ferreira did his best to will Mineola Hurricanes 10U with a two-hit game, but Mineola Hurricanes dropped a 12-2 contest to the North Patchogue/ Medford Raiders in game one at the Willis Avenue Field in Mineola. The Raiders hammered Mineola Hurricanes pitching as six hitters had a field day, combining for 11 hits, four RBIs and 10 runs scored.

The top of the second inning saw Mineola take an early lead, 1-0. The Hurricanes’s threat began with a single by Ferreira. A stolen base then moved Ferreira from first to second.

Patrick O’Gara singled, scoring Ferreira. The Raiders didn’t relinquish the lead after scoring three runs in the second inning when they scored on a two-run error and an RBI single. The Raiders tacked on another three runs in the third.

One run in the top of the fourth helped the Hurricanes close its deficit to 6-2. An RBI single by Ferreira fueled the Hurricanes’s comeback.

The Raiders survived the Hurricanes’s surge and put up four more runs in the fourth. 

The Raiders scored on an RBI single, a two-run single and a steal of home. T.J. McManus took the loss. He allowed six runs (two earned) on six hits in 2 2/3 innings, walked one and struck out two.

 

Hurricanes Strike Back

Mineola Hurricanes 10U seize victory thanks to a late double and beat the North Patchogue/Medford Raiders 5-3. The top of the first saw the Raiders take an early 1-0 lead. After a quick strike from the Raiders, the Hurricanes responded with three runs in the first.

 

The Hurricanes scored on an RBI double by Kevin Pusey, an RBI single by Dominick Ferreira, and an RBI double by Nick Ramos. The Raiders evened up the score at 3-3 with two runs in the top of the second on an RBI single and a bases loaded walk. The Hurricanes managed to grab the lead after a strong fifth inning. Mineola went up for good on a two-run double by A.J. Henriques bringing home Connor Eakin and Jack Mackay.

 

Chris Marotta started the game going four innings allowing three runs on five hits walking five and striking out one. Pusey came in on relief. He held the Raiders hitless over two innings, allowing no earned runs, walking one and striking out two to earn the victory.


News

Winthrop University Hospital employee Jeffrey Brenner, a hyperbaric technician with the Life Support Technologies group in Mineola, recently received the American Heart Association’s prestigious Louis J. Acampora Heart Saver Award at a dinner at the Crest Hollow Country Club. The award is named for a Long Island teenager who succumbed to a sporting injury that is understood to have been preventable if a cardiac medical device had been immediately on-scene and applied. 

 

“I hope that I have made a real difference in my town and the world around me to help prevent death and improve the quality of people’s lives” said Brenner.

The Wheatley School recently hosted an Item Writing Workshop for more than 100 language teachers representing districts across New York State.  The workshop was sponsored by the Foreign Language Association of Chairpersons and Supervisors (FLACS), the professional organization that has assumed responsibility for the creation and administration of the FLACS

Checkpoint A and B Exams (formerly the NYS Second Language Proficiency and Regents Exams).


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.
