It has been 40 years since Billie Jean King defeated Bobby Riggs in the famed “Battle of the Sexes” tennis match. This year also marks that same anniversary of the founding of the Women’s Tennis Association.
This Saturday, the Roslyn Bulldogs have a chance to both avenge their recent loss to Port Washington and more importantly, win the Conference V championship. At 2:30 p.m. on Nov. 2, the Bulldogs will travel to Port Washington to play Paul Scheiber High School in the title game.
Meanwhile, the regular season ended with a flourish last week as Roslyn defeated Great Neck North, 28-9 in a home game played under sunny, but brisk conditions.
It was the biggest football game that Roslyn High School has seen in decades.
Last Saturday, the unbeaten Bulldogs traveled to Port Washington to take on Schreiber High School, which also went into the game with a perfect 5-0 record.
Roslyn residents Isabella Antoniuk, Camellia Ye and Alice Ye have all qualified to compete at the National Age Group Challenge Meet. All three swim for the Long Island Aquatic Club (LIAC). They are three of the 67 LIAC swimmers invited to attend this prestigious competition.
The LIAC athletes will compete in single age groups against swimmers from all over the East Coast. In 2011, LIAC had 90 individual swims in the top 8 categories. After being sidelined by Hurricane Sandy in 2012, the coaches and swimmers look forward to returning to the competition and improving on that performance this year.
National Age Group Challenge will be held November 2-3 in Germantown, MD. Results of the meet can be found live on LIAC’s website www.longislandswimming.com.
Something is definitely in the air around the Roslyn High School football team.
Coming off a dazzling come-from-behind win over Friends Academy, the Bulldogs hosted St. Dominic’s last Saturday, where they promptly scored 14 points in each of the first three quarters for an impressive 42-0 win.
This past winter, the Roslyn High School boys’ varsity basketball team enjoyed a terrific season, playing into the final game of the Nassau County championship.
Now, the football team is following suit, with the Bulldogs off to their best start in decades. On Sept. 28, Roslyn capped off the Homecoming 2013 Weekend with a thrilling, 22-14 come-from-behind win over Long Island Lutheran.
On Sunday, Oct. 27, beginning at 8 a.m., the Roslyn Chamber of Commerce is hosting a 4K Clock Tower Trot.
The runners will meet on that date at the Ellen E. Ward Clock Tower for the race to begin. The scenic race runs along ah historic stretch of Hempstead Harbor, past dozens of historic homes from nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, including circa 1680 Van Nostrand-Starkins House, one of the oldest homes on Long Island. The race will proceed along Gerry Park, now complete with the Horse Tamer statue, before concluding at the famous Ellen E. Ward Clock Tower, the symbol of the village itself.
Over the years, many New York sports legends have visited The Henry Viscardi School at The Viscardi Center in Albertson. Among them have been Joe Namath, Tom Seaver, Don Mattingly and Rusty Staub. A number of years ago, several members of the New York Islanders also entertained Viscardi students.
The Viscardi Center held its Inaugural Golf Outing on September 10 at the prestigious Meadow Brook Club in Jericho where over 100 new and long-term supporters and board members teed off raising vital funds for the Center’ programming. Patrick Curtin, Global Head of Asset Manager Services, Citi Securities and Fund Services, was honored at the event.
