The PYA Legends 11U Baseball Team won the District 28 Championship on July 15. The Legends faced three tough opponents to win the district.
The first game was against East Williston and the Legends won 13 to 1. Jake Morgan pitched five innings, striking out seven and giving up only two hits.
The hitting attack was led by Anthony Ramos, Timmy Castillo and AlexHejna who each had two hits and two RBIs, along with Tristan Duarte who hit a bases-clearing triple.
Laurie Jury, Zoke Kiwimatch (NZL), with crew Logan Fraser, Michael Edmonds, Jarl Brothwick and Matthew Stevens has won the 2011 Knickerbocker Cup. Sally Barkow, Team 7 Match Race (USA) was second, followed by Nicolai Sehested, TRE-FOR Match Racing (DEN). Due to light wind on both days and lightning storms interrupting racing on Thursday, the regatta ended before the completion of the round robin, forcing the results to be calculated on a percentage basis. For his efforts, Jury and his team will have his name permanently affixed to the Knickerbocker Cup along with other match racers such as Dave Perry (USA), Ed Baird (USA), Terry McLaughlin (CAN), Paul Cayard, USA, , Peter Gilmour, (AUS), Russell Coutts, (NZL), and the newer hot match racers Reuben Corbett NZL) and Phil Robertson (NZL). They also receive an automatic entry into the Argo Bermuda Gold Group Cup at the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club in Hamilton, Bermuda in early October.
Pride in Port weekend was outstanding for our teams and our fans. So impressed with our teams, our spectators were given a great show at the football game. The new scoreboard looked great and having Mikey Megdal’s family there to share in its glory was so wonderful. The football team played their hearts out playing against highly ranked Uniondale. The wonderful thing about football is that week three is coming up fast so come to Schreiber to see the varsity play at home this Saturday against Hicksville at 1:30.
Welcome back to another school year and the weekly “around the fields” report on what is happening with Schreiber high school sports. This week is a special week as we lead up to Pride in Port day on Saturday. One thing you will notice on the turf field is a new scoreboard. The board was partially funded through fundraising efforts by the teams that play on the field as well as generous donations. The scoreboard is dedicated to the memory of Mikey Megdal, a former student who passed away at a young age who was the ultimate Vikings fan. We will honor him and his family on Saturday before the game.
The Port Washington Vikings baseball program will be having its second annual fundraiser, “Game Day,” a day of fun for the entire family, on Sunday, Sept. 18 (rain date September 25). The activities begin at noon and end at 5 p.m. at Guggenheim Elementary School.
What an amazing year. Building off last season’s undefeated dual meet record of 5-0, the coaching staff of Joe Lennon, Kelly Bergin, Katherine Byrns, Kristin Augenthaler, and Matt Carrozzo were optimistic about this summer. With lanes more crowded than ever before, we needed a new plan of attack for our practices. We spent our time teaching and training our younger swimmers.
Coach Kelly working tirelessly in Lane 1, teaching the future core of the team and teaching body position through the use of all four strokes. Her time and dedication paid off with some remarkable swimmers stepping up and contributing in our championship weekend. Kelly, along with her sister Michaela, is also taking time to see every guppy in the program and give swimming instruction. This is helping create a base of swimmers for years to come.

The Port Washington Junior Yacht Club held its sixth annual Twilight Keel Boat Regatta recently and Chuck McCarthy had this to say about the event:
“Can 1, Execution Rocks, Long Island Sound – Some of the participants of the Port Wasington Junior YC Twilight Keel Boat Regatta were quite surprised to have sighted a pod of bottle-nosed dolphins just before the start off of Rye. The 7.7 mile race commenced at approximately 18:20 with four boats and 34 junior sailors between the ages of 14 and 17. Conditions were a three to six knot dying northwesterly breeze, calm seas and visibility approximately 25 miles. As the red amber hues appeared for the sunset, the almost full moon rose in the southern sky and lit up western Long Island Sound. The night was magic. The first windward leg was to the Red Flashing Buoy just south of Hens and Chickens, the second leg was a tight reach to the Green Gong off of the east side of Hart Island. The downwind leg was from Hart to the Green Gong off of Prospect Point. During the final upwind leg, the wind became very light and the racers crawled across the finish line at Can 1.”
