Jericho's Transportation Proposition for Vote
On Jan. 27, the Jericho Board of Education approved a resolution for a proposition on transportation. The proposition, which has been placed on the ballot for the May 16 budget vote and school board election, is written as follows:
On Tuesday, May 2, at Walt Whitman, Cel-Net defeated Jerry's Artarama in the opener for both teams. Cel-Net was led by the string pitching of Brittany Bitter. Cel-Net had defensive support from Nicole Cohen (who also had three hits) and Julie Levites who made a very difficult catch which resulted in an unassisted double play to end the third inning. In the last inning, Jerry's scored five times to take a one-run lead. Cel-Net won in its last at bat when Melanie Mednick got a two out, bases loaded hit to score Arielle Fadan and Natalie Mestel.
Jericho 3rd/4th Grade Lacrosse
As anticipated, this week's game against New Hyde Park, a team Jericho lost to last year, proved to be a tough game. Jericho started the game scoring the first goal and commanding a 4-1 lead by half-time. Matt Sherman was a brick wall in goal, preventing New Hyde Park from scoring with what few shots they managed to place on goal. The defense led by Brett Longo, Russel Greenberg and Corey Saft, played a physical game, shutting down the offense from making any fast break goals. Both the Midfield and Attack, proved how experience and practice paid off, controlling the ball with fine passing and fast breaks. Max Landow, Brandon Richter and Russel Taff controlled the faceoffs, winning eight and losing three. Combined with the ball handling of fellow midfielders Jake Weithorn, Austin Greenfield, Dan Bennisato and the Attack, Jericho had 23 shots on goal. The Attack, led by Harry Anscher, Brett Longo, Hudson Miller and Russel Greenberg played a "clutch" game, scoring the points when most needed.
