You might not think that a junior varsity lacrosse game, especially the final one of the regular season, would end on such an emotional note.
On April 29, the North Hempstead Country Club (NHCC) 9 Holers held their opening scramble. The results are as follows:
1st Place Gross: Trish D’Agostino, Helen Paxton, Sue D’Agnes and Lisa Stephan
1st Place Net: Dawn Epp, Pam Gill and Irene Bergin
Longest Drive: Patrice Picone
On May 19 the NHCC 18 holers held the final round of the Alice Hommel 2 week Ringer Tournament.
Who were behind the heavyweight boxing champions, raising millions of dollars to increase the purses paid to the heavyweight boxing heroes to fight for or retain their championship titles? And how were these total sport events created and knitted together so a great and unusal television broadcasting could cover the world using the newest developed satellite birds that were placed to hover in space high above the earth’s equator?
Congratulations to Roslyn Heights endurance athlete Lois Polesky, who successfully completed the Long Island Greenbelt Trail 25 Kilometer Run on Saturday, May 9.
The 55 year old Polesky completed the 15.5 mile course from the Plainview trailhead on Sunnyside Boulevard to the Cold Spring Harbor terminus of the Trail and back in 3 hours, 34 minutes, 56 seconds, placing her 70th overall.
The girls’ varsity lacrosse team earned their first ever conference championship for Roslyn High School. Led by coaches Michelle Crennan and Colleen Schmitt, the team compiled an 11-1 league record and an overall 13-3 season record.
The girls advanced to the county playoffs last Monday, where they lost to South Side High School.
Each year, Child Abuse Prevention Services (CAPS), Long Island’s leading non-profit dedicated to violence prevention and child safety education, recognizes a local individual who has demonstrated their commitment to improving the lives of children. This year, their John Davis Memorial Award will be given to Plandome resident Steve Leondis, founder of Hoops on the Hill, during the CAPS 11th annual Golf Outing benefit, Monday, June 8 at Glen Head Country Club. The event supports the non-profit’s prevention-through-education student programs which are offered at no cost to all schools in Nassau and Suffolk counties.
While the inaugural Blazing Trails 4-Autism 4 Mile Run was held six months ago, and the 2nd annual Run will be held six months from now – Sunday, Nov. 8 – there has been no interruption in the solid support for the event from the Long Island business community.
Mayor Michael R. Koblenz and the Village of East Hills Board of Trustees recently gave the Roslyn High School stars of 2009 Nassau County Basketball Championship team a hero’s welcome. The mayor presented, ceremoniously, individual plaques to each of the players and called their athletic achievements historic and record-breaking. Mayor Koblenz said that everyone is “truly proud of their accomplishments and success. They excelled through their talents to achieve remarkable heights. They deserve our praise and admiration.”
Mayor Koblenz attended the championship game and saw, firsthand, what has been hailed as one of the greatest victories in Roslyn High School history.
In response to the special ceremonies, Coach Levine wrote to the mayor saying, “…Thanks so much for the support this year. Interesting but true story. Two days before the Southside game at the end of practice, Coach Risener addressed the team at half court with the following speech: ‘In addition to playing for the school and community, we are also playing for a championship plaque which will forever be in the school’s trophy case so that when you have kids one day you will be able to show them this in the school’s trophy case.’ What you gave us last night is already proudly displayed in my home in Island Park and the plaques you gave us are something I and the whole team will fondly cherish for the rest of our lives.”
Roslyn’s Varsity Lacrosse team will be facing off with Wheatley for a mid-season “Battle on the Turf” at 4:15 p.m. on Thursday, May 7.
Everyone is invited, but most importantly the youth of Roslyn so they can see their Varsity Bulldogs in action and aspire to play on the varsity level in the future.
Please come out and join us for an afternoon full of fun, food and being a fan of the “Dawgs!”
The event is sponsored by the Bulldog Boosters and will be played at the Roslyn High School turf field.
