Port Schools Open With 4,543
With a 2001-2002 enrollment of 4,543 students (not including pre-K), the Port Washington School District is 50 students below its projection of 4,593 for this school year. But still, 119 students more than the previous year. (Last year the projection of 4,397 was 27 students fewer than the actual enrollment of 4,424; the year prior to that the projection of 4,252 was 69 students fewer than the enrollment of 4,321.) This year the middle and high school projections were almost on the nose: middle school-projection: 1053; actual:1050/ high school-projection: 1246; actual: 1249.

Vikings Rout Cougars in Season Opener, 37-0
The Port Vikings kicked off their football season with a bang as they routed Bellmore JFK High School, 37-0. The Vikings, who look poised for a winning season after last year's sub-par performance, left the Bellmore Cougars in the dust with a simple game plan: run, run and run again. Before the Cougars knew what hit them, they were behind in a game that would soon turn into something less than a contest. Michael Cosolito, Ray Ross, Jason Sussman and Chris Cosolito all contributed to a running attack that put the Vikings into the end zone early and often. The Port defense would also stymie and neutralize both the run and pass options of Bellmore all day.
