OBHS Athletes Excel In And Out Of Classrooms

Written by Donna Duffy Wednesday, 12 December 2012 13:29

After the last goal has been scored and championships have been won or lost in a season, statistics are relegated to history and coaches look ahead to next year. There is one statistic that lives on and is perhaps the most important of all, that is the GPA‘s of the athletes. At the end of each season, each team takes an average of the GPA’s of all students on the roster.

If the team average GPA is 90 percent or better, the team earns a Scholar/Athlete Award. In the 2012 Fall Sports Season, all but one of the teams garnered the average GPA to merit Team Scholar Athlete Awards. The football team had an average team GPA of 89.92 percent. They missed by eight one hundredths of a percent.


Vernon Mileage Club Goes The Distance

Friday, 30 November 2012 00:00

With the Internet and video games keeping more and more children inside and sedentary, the physical education team at the James H. Vernon School has been proactive in promoting fitness above and beyond the requisite gym classes.

This year the Vernon physical education teachers Jennifer Doxsee, Tom Neary and Keven Degnan brought an international program called the Mileage Club for third and fourth-graders to Vernon. The Mileage Club is a voluntary lunch time program that gets children to walk on the playground several times a week. Each child gets a mileage marker card that is checked each time a student completes a lap. For every mile completed the child will receive a “toe token” that can be put on a shoe lace or worn on a chain. A “5-mile charm” is given to commemorate that milestone. Almost the entire third and fourth-grade classes have already earned at least a one-mile token so far.

Six divers earned certification  as Public Safety Diver (PSD). PSD is a basic certification needed for rescue diving within a public safety (in this case, fire department) dive team.

The training took place at beaches in Oyster Bay and Glen Cove and at the Atlantic Steamer Marine Facility at Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park. Danny Rivera and Chris Zino are in charge of diver training for the fire company. Both are master scuba diver trainers and PSD instructors.

Written by Kevin McLaughlin Friday, 19 October 2012 00:00

The Saint Dominic C.Y.O. Soccer program hosted a Breast Cancer Awareness Day at the beautiful playing fields on Sunday, Sept. 30. This event, the first of its kind for the C.Y.O., was a rousing success, with over $600 raised while garnering a  tremendous response from both the local community and from the visiting opponents  from Holy Spirit parish and Sacred Heart parish. 

With the families of the Lady Bayhawk soccer players supplying delicious baked goods, crafts made by the players, and pink ribbon sweatbands and armbands, the occasion was a chance for not only the Saint Dominic C.Y.O. family to recognize those in our area affected by breast cancer, but to celebrate those survivors and their loved ones who have shown such bravery and resiliency.
