It has been an exciting first couple of weeks for the Mineola Mustangs Baseball team. It opened up the season on April 6 with a home win vs. Hewlett. After losing the next two games, both Coach Helms Bohringer and Coach Barry Silverstein weren’t going to give up on the team. They have been working the kids even harder knowing that a couple of big series were on the way.
The Mineola Chiefs third grade boys lacrosse team went on the road and defeated the Farmingdale Dalers 6-2 on April 11. The Chiefs scoring was produced by midfielders Michael O’Connell (4 Goals) and Jack Duff (2 Goals).
In its first game against the Mount Sinai Lady Stampede, Joanna Graca scored both of Mineola’s goals in their 2-0 win. One of Graca’s tallies came off a straight cross from Jordyn Sinert. The Red Bulls’ defensive line was led by by Nicole Hetzel and Jessica Gugliemeli. Haley Tarantino had several saves in goal to earn a shutout. Erin Patterson and Kaitlyn Assalone played a solid midfield.

Open to swimmers ages 6 and older, the swim-a-thon will raise vital funds for the hospital’s Child Life Program through which certified Child Life Specialists utilize play and education to improve the understanding of medical procedures; teach relaxation techniques to help the patients cope with illness or surgery, and provide emotional support for the entire family.

The students and their friends attended a meeting of the East Norwich Civic Association where Sgt. Tony Larson, an injured veteran of the war in Iraq and his service dog Tomme met with the public. Mr. Larson, 29, a resident of Minnesota spoke about how his life has changed for the better since receiving his service dog, Tomme.
As I conclude a five-year stint as publicity director for the Mineola Athletics Booster Club and primary correspondent on behalf of the Mineola American for Mineola High School Varsity Athletics, I am emboldened by a young student who has stepped up to fill the void in my absence.
The Mineola girls basketball team fresh from coming off their first conference championship in over 30 years had another victorious night as their coach and all five starters won various awards at the Annual Nassau County Girls Basketball Coaches Association’s All-Star Dinner, held March 23 at the Crest Hollow Country Club.
Five years ago, Mineola high school varsity baseball coaches Helms Bohringer and Barry Silverstein were saying that 2010 was going to be the year for the Mineola baseball program.
Well, the 2010 season is here and the varsity baseball team is rolling. After missing the playoffs by just one game last year, coach Bohringer doesn’t want that to happen again, which is why he and coach Silverstein have arranged a trip for the baseball team to go down to the North Carolina/Virginia area to have a spring training right before the league games start for the new season.
Mark your calendar now for an inspirational day: Sunday, May 16.
