Star Supports Port Washington's Special Pets at Animal League
On Thursday, January 24 two stars met for the first time in Port Washington at North Shore Animal League and it was love at first sight. The similarities between them were striking: both wore single color ensembles; both moved with a willowy grace and both dazzled us with their irresistible wide-mouthed smiles. The least noticeable but most important trait they share is that both are diabetic and this was the reason for their special meeting.

Vikings Take Down Jets
Playing from behind in the first quarter, the Vikings got their act in gear in the second and went on to dispose of the East Meadow Jets 53-46. The Vikings were slow out of the gate as East Meadow performed excellently on the boards and prevented second shot attempts from the Vikings. Ross and Ferrucci led the Vikings with 16 and 13 points respectively, as the varsity overcame a 13-9 first quarter deficit to win going away with tight defense and stronger board play in the second period. Ferrucci did an excellent job of plugging up the middle of the paint, along with Mandelkern, Mulqueen, and Guillaume that enabled the Vikings to hold the Jets to one-shot opportunities and completely take them out of their first quarter rhythm.
