The 2014 Oyster Bay High School Lady Baymen varsity spring track team recently completed a most memorable and record breaking season. Two school records were shattered this season; one relay record and one individual. Oyster Bay’s 4x800 meter relay team comprised of seniors Nicole Giannetti, Cassandra Iacono and juniors Linda Cameron and Rachel Wesley, broke the existing school record, and later broke their own record with a time of 10:01.56 at the Section VIII State Qualifier Meet on May 29.Nicole Giannetti‘s senior year as a member of the Oyster Bay Girls’ Varsity Track team will also be one that will be long remembered. In addition to helping break the school’s 4x800 meters relay record, Giannetti broke the school’s 2000 meter steeplechase record, with a time of 7:23.79. Winning the 1500 meter run in very dramatic fashion at the Nassau Coaches Invitational, with an amazing time of 4:59 was a memorable mid-season highlight. Giannetti earned All-Conference honors in both the 1500 meters and 3000 meter runs and All County honors in the 2000 meter steeplechase. Giannetti qualified for the New York State Track and Field Championship in the 2000 meter steeplechase, finishing fifth and thus earning All-State honors. Giannetti was recruited by Haverford College to run for them when she attends this fall where she will study bio-chemistry.

On Saturday, June 21, Glen Cove High School’s Maiden Field hosted the inaugural Dan Daly Cup High School All-Star Lacrosse game, honoring the legacy of U.S. Marine Sgt. Maj. Dan Daly, a two-time Medal of Honor recipient.
Sponsored by the U.S. Marine Corps, in partnership with the Nassau County Lacrosse Coaches Association, the New York Lizards professional lacrosse team, the City of Glen Cove and the Glen Cove School District, the game featured 50 of Nassau and Suffolk’s elite high school lacrosse players. Ryan Hauser from Oyster Bay High School and Pierce Dellafera from Friends Academy represented their high schools, as did Glen Cove High School lacrosse players Philip Grella and Sean Peet, who participated in the game as members of Nassau’s Team Virtue squad. Despite an admirable comeback by team Virtue, the Suffolk squad –Team Valor– prevailed in the game, 14-8.
Not only did Friends Academy sophomore Devika Kedia of Muttontown win the Silver Medal at this year’s Long Island Math Fair, she was able to do it with a project that is very close to her heart.
Competing against hundreds of Long Island high school students, Kedia chose to connect her passion for golf with mathematics in her project. “I researched the math behind a golf shot,” explained Kedia. “I proved that each different golf club corresponds to its own distance due to varying shaft lengths and loft angles, which explains why golfers have to carry so many different clubs.”

Both the boys and girls lacrosse teams at St. Dominic’s High School won the CHSAA ‘A’ Championship, for the first time since 2011.
