Well, you saw an incredible week of play as our teams made some significant strides in the season as we wind down the spring.
The boys lacrosse team had an impressive 12-8 win over defending state champion Farmingdale. This was the first time in 20 years a boys lacrosse team has defeated the Dalers. The team played a tough game against perennial top team Hicksville and lost in double overtime in a game that was filmed by MSG Varsity. The team next plays at home on May 1 against Syosset.
As you walk or drive along Shore Road, you will start seeing sailboats and motorboats out on the bay. Shipyards are busy this time of year, as are boat owners, who have waited patiently all winter long, dreaming of warm weather sailing. Well, the time to get the boat ready is here, and what a fun time it is. If you happen to stop by a boatyard on a weekend, you will be greeted with happy boat owners preparing their boats, catching up with other boat owners, and eager to get their boats launched. Yes, this is a very busy time down at the waterfront and it won’t even hit its peak until May. But, in the meantime, skippers and crew need to prepare not only their boats but their crew. Emergencies occur even to well-prepared crews. What if a picture-perfect sail at one moment turns into an emergency the next? Are you ready?
One of the most selfless acts of sports camaraderie took place last week when the girls varsity lacrosse teams from Port and Massapequa held a special KeiraStrong day in honor of coach Enright’s daughter who is battling leukemia. The teams wore KeiraStrong shirts as their game jerseys and played before a packed crowd at Burns Park in Massapequa. Though the Lady Vikings were overmatched in this game, the final outcome was about the outpouring of support for the Enright family. Thanks to all who attended the game and those who bought shirts for the fundraising cause. The loss to Massapequa is the only loss for the girls lacrosse team this year as they are 5-1 on the season.
For the second year in a row, Port North won two championships at Island Garden.
The fourth grade team defeated HHH Fury 39-26 to complete their first season with a championship. The team was made up of Casey Lee, Matt Tracz, Connor Dunphy, Derek Livingston, Dominic Eilbacher, Mikey Beil, Ryan Perlmutter, Brandon Caslow, Christopher Bradburry, Jacob Katz and Matt Schmitz.
Supervisor Jon Kaiman, Councilwoman Dina De Giorgio and the North Hempstead Town Board in partnership with Port Rowing and lead sponsor U.S. Rowing are pleased to announced the first annual Row for Autism benefit event on April 21 at North Hempstead Beach Park. The free event will feature local North Hempstead high school crew clubs racing each other as well as afternoon rowing races by those affected by autism.
An interesting story appeared in my inbox this past week, compliments of Scuttlebutt. It is extreme racing up close and personal. And since the weather has been nice, most likely anyone owning a boat was either frostbiting, or in the boatyard either preparing their boat for the spring or thinking about it. So the story below is just a tease to all you sailor-racers out there… to get your blood flowing a bit faster, and get you motivated to launch your boats. While Manhasset Bay is not the Southern Ocean, it is ours, conveniently located right out our backdoor.
On Monday, March 20 at the 32nd Annual Nassau County Boys Swim Coaches Association dinner, seven members of the Port Washington/Roslyn varsity swim team were recognized as all-county conference status for their swims at the Section 8 county championship races in February.
The four Port Washington Red Hots lacrosse teams had an amazing indoor winter season. The 4th-, 5th- and 6th-grade teams all won the Sportime indoor championship. This was the second consecutive championship for the 6th-grade travel team. The 7th-grade team also made it to the finals.

The Royal Bermuda YC has announced that the 62 staging of match racing for the King Edward VII Gold Cup will take place in early October, with the Argo Group as the title sponsor. The Cup was originally presented in 1907 by King Edward VII to Sherman Hoyt at the Jamestown Tri-centennial Regatta marking the commemoration of the 300th anniversary of the first permanent settlement in America.
