The GU15 Mineola Mini-Mustangs soccer club began their spring campaign where they left off during their successful Fall 2013 season. On Sunday, March 16, Mineola used a solid defensive effort to earn a well-played 2-1 victory over the Dix Hills Nitro at Vets Park in Northport, in the first Arch Cup Tournament group game for both teams.
The Mineola girl’s Varsity and JV basketball program received the Nassau County Girl’s Basketball Officials Association Sportsmanship Award. Out of 56 participating schools, the Lady Mustangs scored the highest as coaches and teams are rated by the official after each game.
Respect of officials, respect for visiting team, and coach’s behavior on the sideline are just a few of the areas that are scored. This is the third time Mineola High School Girl’s has been honored with this award.
Coming off playoff berths in each of the two seasons under Head Coach Anthony Tramonte, the Mineola Mustang softball team is confident they will return. They will have the challenge of replacing six starters from last season that graduated, but Tramonte feels that the team’s strength will carry the load.
“What we lack in power, we make up in speed and defense,” said Tramonte, whose squad is coming off a strong 8-4 season that ended with a 1-0 loss to Glen Cove in the first-round of the playoffs. “We will be relying on bunting and moving the runners and executing the little things,” he said.
The Mineola Varsity Wrestling team had a strong finish to a good season. This is a young team that has only four seniors, with two coming into the year with one year experience between them. The real problem they had to overcome was that they were going to have to forfeit at least four weight classes every match, putting the team down by 24 points at the start of each dual meet.
This year’s team had no small boys joining the team so the 99, 106, 113 and the 121-pound weight classes went unfilled which give the opposing team six points for each weight. The boys finished the 9-9 with a team predominately made up of juniors.
The four seniors did a fine job led by team captain Jacob Escobar (19 wins) at 132 pounds, second-year wrestler Lorenzo Gulinao (15 wins) at 120 pounds and Milandip Toor at 145 pounds, who made it to the Nassau County finals. First-year wrestler Christian Martin had 12 wins at 285 pounds.
The 2014 Junior Olympic Metropolitan Championships were held March 14-16 at the Nassau County Aquatic Center. Results were unavailable as of press time. Roslyn, Albertson and East Williston residents Bridget Ye, Camellia Ye, Alice Ye, Sophia Karras, Anthony
Melchore, Orry Zayit, Jessica Guglielmo and Isabella Antoniuk join a large squad from the Long Island Aquatic Club (LIAC). The team hopes to uphold a legacy of consecutive Junior Olympic Team Championships.

Students and faculty members from Mineola High School went head-to-head
in Olympic-style games in an effort to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Hospital recently. More than 16 student and faculty teams competed against each other in events such as volleyball, three-point shootout, relay races and goal kicking. Spectators were asked to donate $5 each, which raised more than $1,500 for the cause.

This is the year the program has been waiting for. Head Coach Helms Bohringer, now in his 17th season at Mineola High School, is looking forward to having eight returning seniors from the 2013 varsity baseball team. That squad finished with seven wins, an improvement over the previous year.
The Mustangs have a program that is trending upward and Bohringer is excited for the prospects of this squad.
