Nick DeMeo and Ed McIlhenny Honored by PYA
Nearly 300 people attended the Port Washington Youth Activities (PYA) 15th Annual Hall of Fame Dinner Dance, the organization's key fund-raising event that serves as the culmination of PYA's sports year. The year's event, held at the North Hempstead Country Club, honored Nick DeMeo, a current board member and key volunteer contributor, and former athlete Ed McIlhenny. Both of these men, in their own ways, have helped establish and grow the organization since its inception in 1963.
Kudos for Klaff
Nassau County held its annual awards dinner for the cross-country teams on Dec. 7 at the Crest Hollow Country Club. The evening's program not only honored and recognized outstanding student-athletes, but honored outstanding coaching. Eleven members of Schreiber's Cross Country co-ed team received awards. This past season was the best ever for Port as they went undefeated and won their division title. Section VIII of Nassau County took notice of how Port made such tremendous strides and honored their coach, Jeremy Klaff, with "Outstanding Achievement in Coaching Award." No other cross-country team improved as much as Port did over the past year.
On the Bay
As all local sailors know, come the new year, the first sailing event of importance is the Annual Frostbite New Year's Regatta. Next up on the agenda is Acura Key West 2006, which started last Monday, Jan. 16. With the weather predicted to be great, with good winds, and only one day of rain, and with Peter Reggio as the PRO, the week is shaping up to be another great race for the 286 boats that have registered from 14 countries and 37 states.
