Syosset Board Of Ed Recognizes Fall Athletes

The Syosset Central School District Board of Education recognized the outstanding efforts put in by members of several fall athletic teams at its Dec. 16 meeting. Demonstrating a commitment to their sport, team and school, these Syosset High School athletes were either named fall champions on the county level or were state qualifiers.

Both the varsity boys cross-country team—consisting of William Anderson, Ryan DePinto, Tyler Italiano, David Lam, William Long, Dale Mittleman, Simon Nwana, Michael O’Brien and Eamon Sheerin —and the varsity girls cross-country team—consisting of Kayla Beovich, Alexandra Bruefach, Samantha DeStefani, Meghan Galvin, Lauren Gruber, Reilly Siebert and Zoe Stricoff —were honored for their Nassau County Class A Championship and qualifying for states. Tyler was also recognized as the Nassau County Class A Individual Champion. Senior Rhea Malhotra and junior Katie Cirella, who play tennis, qualified for the New York State Championships and were honored for their achievements.

Eight students from Jericho High School, the largest number of students from any school on Long Island this year, are among the 300 semifinalists picked from 1,800 entrants nationally and overseas in the annual Intel Science Talent Search.

Brookville’s Green Vale School students were featured in the September/October 2013 issue of Sport Rocketry, the official journal of the National Association of Rocketry.

The seventh-grade students competed nationally at the Team America Rocketry Challenge (TARC) last May in Virginia and were the youngest rocket scientists competing. They were also the only team from Long Island that qualified to enter the competition and one of only two teams from New York State.
