Jiannarus Named 'Officer of the Year'
At the last Village of Roslyn public meeting, various county and village officials honored Roslyn Heights resident Henry Krukowski as its "fireman of the year." Continuing in the tradition of top-rate public service in the village, Police Officer Denis Jiannarus, who patrols the streets of Roslyn, was honored at the Dec. 19 meeting as Nassau County's "top cop" for the year 2000. In fact, Dec. 19 itself was officially proclaimed to be "Denis Jiannarus Day" in the Village of Roslyn.
More Booster Basketball Results
Tigers vs. Cougars - The Tigers played with only five players and used a strategic slow-down offense to conserve their energy. Point guards Leah Heisler and Brooke Rubinstein controlled the ball, with Jamie Kaye, Rachel Bass, and Amy Levine crashing the boards to give the Tigers a first half lead. Not to be outdone, Cougar players Sammy Peters, Heather Karson and Skyler Cohen applied smothering defensive pressure, while Samantha Schawrtz and Katie Lombardo "played catch and shoot in the low post" to lead the Cougars to a last minute tie.
Receiving honors on the Friends Academy varsity football team were seniors Peter Williamson, Huntington Bay, All County, Zach Hill, Roslyn Harbor, All Conference, and Elliott Klass, Roslyn, National Federation Scholar/Athlete.
