The Bulldogs Booster Association will hold its first 5K Run/Walk event on Saturday, April 21 beginning and ending at Roslyn High School and following a course through the Village of Roslyn.
The race honors the memory of Greg Fried, a beloved Roslyn track and field coach. The district needs the help of sponsors and donors to make this event a success. Contributions are tax deductible and the first $25,000 of sponsorships will be matched dollar for dollar, which will substantially leverage any gift.
When he was at Roslyn High School, George Beamon led the Bulldogs to some of their most successful basketball results in years. He was also the top scorer in all of Nassau County.
Now, Beamon has repeated that success at Manhattan College. During the regular season, he led the Jaspers to a 20-11 overall record and a 12-6 mark in Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference play (MAAC).
In the fourth quarter of a playoff game against powerhouse South Side, North Shore’s Justin Bell stood at the foul line, took a deep breath and made the last basket of his high school career.
Another winning season has come to an end for the Roslyn Bulldogs as they fell to Hewlett in Class A quarterfinal action, 61-46.
The game, played on Feb. 22 at Hewlett, saw the Bulldogs fighting an uphill battle from the beginning as they fell behind 26-16 at halftime and were outscored 23-11 in the third quarter. With their season on the line, the Bulldogs, a team that has come from behind all year, staged one last fourth quarter rally, outscoring Hewlett 19-12 in the final frame, but that was not enough to win the game and save the season.
Early last month, 12 North Shore wrestlers earned Division 1 “All Conference” honors after placing in the Freeport County Qualifying Tournament.
In addition to earning All Conference, these wrestlers earned the golden ticket to advance to the county tournament at Hofstra. Freshman Giorgo Recne was not intimidated by larger and older wrestlers and brought his football skills to the tournament, finishing with a pin for third place. Sophomore Hunter Sharf had a barn burner of a semi-final getting pinned while ahead of the number two seeded wrestler 8-4. He fought back hard for 4th place and earned his second trip to the counties. Senior John Jacome finally made his way to the counties after four years on the varsity squad.
Director of Athletics Don Lang proudly announced that two North Shore High School senior athletes signed National Letters of Intent (NLI). A Letter of Intent is a binding agreement between a prospective student-athlete and an institution. Once signed, the institution agrees to provide that student with financial aid (if eligible under the NCAA rules) for one academic year in exchange for that student’s agreement to attend the institution for one academic year. Additionally, all colleges and universities that participate in the NLI program agree to not recruit these student athletes once he or she signs the NLI.
North Shore Director of Athletics Don Lang said, “According to NCAA guidelines, Feb. 1 is the first official day that our track runners can sign their National Letters of Intent. Congratulations go out to Samantha Nadel and Brianna Nerud who have chosen Georgetown and Syracuse University respectively to attend in the fall. They will officially commit to these two universities today.”

The streets were trembling, the buildings were shaking and the confetti was falling by the truck-full in the Canyon of Heroes on Tuesday, Feb. 7 as New York City said thanks to its beloved Big Blue.
The New York Giants celebrated the 21-17 Super Bowl XVLI (46) victory over the New England Patriots in style with a ticker-tape parade and estimated attendance of one million screaming onlookers. Fans laughed, cheered, even cried as their favorite team passed by on what could be magically mistaken as chariots of the football gods.
An estimated 40 tons of confetti showered the “G-MEN.” Fans barricaded on the sidewalks took to climbing streetlights, signs and building storefronts to could catch a glimpse of the team.
The day features a 3-on-3 basketball tournament in boys, girls, and adult divisions. There will be raffles, such special events as a free throw contest and half court shot, plus refreshments.
Proceeds will benefit Ascent, a private, nonprofit school for children diagnosed with special needs.
Last Sunday, New York Giants football fans experienced another thrill of a lifetime as the Giants won their second Super Bowl title in four years, defeating the New England Patriots in come-from-behind fashion.
For Giants fans in Roslyn, the day got off to a great start as longtime Delicacies customer Sean Landeta visited his favorite Roslyn establishment to meet and greet the fans, sign autographs and stock up for the big game. Sean visited Delicacies from 8 to 9:30 a.m. and signed autographs for no charge.
“We are huge sports fans and we are always trying new things to please our customers,” said owner Jim Zanfardino. “We may have to name a sandwich after Sean, no baloney! It was a great day for Delicacies and a great day for the Giants and the fans.”
