The Roslyn High School boys’ track team hopes to build on its outstanding spring season, when many players won individual conference and division honors, and Roslyn finished on top in its conference for the first time in decades.
Emily Lipari has won many honors and many championships in her legendary track and field career at Roslyn High School.
Now Emily is a media celebrity. This fall, she graces the cover of the October issue of ESPN’s Rise magazine, which features the top high school athletes in the United States.
Emily has been the New York State cross country champion for the last two years, and has finished 6th and 11th in the last two Foot Locker national championships.
The article talks about her high expectations for herself in the upcoming season. “This summer is probably the hardest I’ve ever trained,” she is quoted as saying. Emily’s Roslyn High School coach Vera Trenchfield is also quoted in the article.
Entering his 13th season as the boys soccer coach at Mineola, Paul Pereira looks to welcome a record sixth consecutive playoff berth and ninth overall. The rebirth of the program has brought notoriety to the school and select placement in one of Nassau County’s top conferences.
Each year, the Mustangs, who include a number of players from the Roslyn area, fine tune a core group of individuals around a singular presence and develop bench strength without the pressure of a “win at all costs” regular season. The task in 2009 is no different for the Mustangs.
