MinRunning squad welcomes the challenge

Chaminade High School track coach Brian Hayes feels the message is simple. “If you’re a boy on Long Island and if you want to run fast, this is a good place to go,” he said.

The record would seem to bear him out. Chaminade has been among the top track programs in Nassau County for quite some time. The Flyers have 150 youngsters from freshmen to senior classes with seven coaches on staff.

“Track here is well-respected with a great tradition,” Hayes said. “It builds on itself. Kids want to be part of it. Our size is our strength. Our kids are driven academically and athletically. They’re motivated both in the classroom and on the field. They want to succeed.”

Friday, 01 February 2013 00:00

Mathew Long, a senior student-athlete at Mineola High School, won his 100th varsity match on Jan. 12. One hundred wins is a rare feat for someone in a small-school Division II team who averages only 36 matches per season. He also has a chance of beating the current 15-year school record of 116 varsity wrestling wins. 

In addition to serving as captain of the varsity wrestling team for the last two years, Long was named All-Conference in 2009, county champion in 2011 and 2012, and MVP of all the Division II teams in 2012. If he completes the current season as county champion for 2013, Long will then hold the school record for most consecutive county wins in wrestling, as well.
