The U9 and U10 Mineola Hurricanes Travel Baseball teams recently held an end of the summer mixed scrimmage to celebrate a successful travel season. Coaches Rich Macchietto and Dan Othman decided this would help the teams prep for the fall season.
The U9 and U10 boys were mixed together to create two teams: Dan’s Dorks and the Macchietto Mutts. Dan’s Dorks came out on top winning 14-9 in an all-around slugfest. The game was followed by a pizza party for all players, coaches and families.
Not many high school football teams have the stability at the head coaching position that Mineola has. For the past 27 seasons, the Mustangs have counted on Dan Guido to lead them to victory.
Born and raised in Mineola, Guido and his whole family are very much a part of the tradition of the town and of the high school’s success. Guido’s son was a member of the football team 10 years ago. Even his daughter played a tremendous role, earning her peers’ vote for “Best Athlete” her senior year.
Representing Team USA is a tremendous honor, even for athletes and coaches who have had illustrious careers in their respective sports. For Bill Jaffe, it was extra special, coming full circle.
A former standout hockey player at the University of Michigan in the late 1980s, Jaffe had the honor of coaching the USA men’s ice hockey team to a silver medal in the Maccabiah tournament in Israel last month. It was the first time that ice hockey was a part of the tournament since 1997, when Jaffe was team captain.
Coming off a disappointing first-round exit in the playoffs last season, Mineola football is looking to make some serious noise in Conference IV of Nassau County. Many of the team’s impact players from last season are returning, and the added experience could spell trouble for their foes.
“We have a good group of returning players,” said head coach Dan Guido, starting his 27th season at the helm of the Mustangs.
