Members of the Oyster Bay-East Norwich Soccer Club have been recognized for their good sportsmanship. As the Long Island Junior Soccer League began to grow and play at higher levels of competition, there was a movement within the league to remain focused on their mission to develop mature adults and responsible citizens through the lessons of teamwork and fair play. The goal was to “build character through soccer,” a sentiment stressed through the important role sportsmanship plays in the development of players.
Now, referees submit sportsmanship ratings after every game, and the LIJSL Sportsmanship Committee allots points. Winners are recognized with a sportsmanship award plaque and a patch that they are allowed to place on their uniform. This is the only patch players may wear on their uniform other than their club patch.
The Wave has been selected as the winners of the Fall 2013 Sportsmanship Award for the U9 Girls Division. The players include: Abigail Askeland, Kaleigh Bosch, Jenna Cody, Riley Ford, Ryleigh Greene, Faith Lingen, Makenzie Macchia, Mariana Panariello, Lesley Pineda, Chiara Rutigliano, Kate Santi, page Sweeney and Brooke Vetter.
Sunday, 23 November 2014 00:00Driving rain and an early start time did not deter 600 people who arrived at Crest Hollow Country Club recently to celebrate the Women’s Fund of Long Island’s 20th year and to honor four exceptional women.
The breakfast started with a meet and greet and a chance to showcase Women’s Fund contest winner Patti Hogarty, designer of “Women as Bamboo.” Inspired by her neighbor’s bamboo, she entered the contest drawing a design of the bamboo, which Ambalu Jewelers of Roslyn then turned into various pendants of which 40-percent of the profits would go to WFLI. Hogarty wrote a short essay comparing women to bamboo in that they are strong and can weather difficult storms, yet remain graceful and continue to grow sending out new shoots.

Oyster Bay High School Principal Dr. Dennis O’Hara addressed the board of education at Tuesday night’s meeting about offering a summer school program at the high school. It would be the first time the district had a summer school program in more than 12 years.
Dr. O’Hara explained that with the institution of the Common Core state standards, students are faced with a greater level of academic rigor and more challenging coursework. The program would offer remedial and enrichment classes for students both in and out of district.

In the history of Oyster Bay High School athletics, no one has ever won a Girls’ Tennis New York State Championship. Celeste Matute and Courtney Kowalsky became the first when they won the 2014 New York State Doubles Championship in Latham on Nov. 3. What makes this tremendous achievement even more remarkable is that Matute is a junior and Kowalsky is a sophomore.
The girls, who are usually singles players, teamed up to take on the very best players in Nassau County and New York State. They won all 10 matches in the section XIII and NYSPHSAA tournaments and left Latham as the 2014 New York State doubles champions.
