The Boys Cross Country team qualified for the New York State meet at the County Championships on Nov. 6. After winning the Class C County Championship for the fourth year straight, the boys’ team has high expectations for the State meet. Senior Joe LaCorte was only a freshman when the boys’ team began the streak, which includes 4 undefeated seasons against team within the division. Joe captured the individual county title for Class C, and was able to place 25th overall with a time of 17:10, his best time ever at Bethpage State Park. Joseph was voted All-Division along with Steven Tortora, Chris Kulis, Nick Mavros, TJ Butler, and Patryk Tauter. Andrew Kenn and Daniel Eng hope to make an impact at the state meet, by running their best times this year.

There were at least 20 adults helping to bait the hooks and to “un-hook” the fish in order to throw them back in the water.

Friday morning, Oct. 15 walking down the Western Waterfront pier to where the tall ships were berthed, you could see that the Gazela was being pushed east by the winds. As predicted, Oyster Bay was being hit by a nor’easter. The Gazela, usually tied up to the dock with four lines, was tied with double lines – eight – and at around noon, Captain Richard Bailey told the First Mate Patrick Flynn to make it 10 to keep the 600-ton vessel safe.
Yeah it was a bit windy, and there was a bit of a chill in the air, but nothing the 609 runners and walkers who crossed the finish line of the Oct. 16, Oyster Bay Supervisor’s 5 Kilometer Run didn’t seem to mind at all. It is the opening event of the annual Oyster Festival.
