St. Dominic senior R.J. Beil recorded the 250th point of his career Monday on an assist to Grant Galligan 10 seconds into a non-league win over Portledge.
After scoring five goals with two assists in the 13-5 road win, Beil’s total points is now up to 256, which “easily ranks him in at least the top-five in the program’s history,” according to third-year head coach Matt O’Brien.
“He...Read more »
This is what we in the biz call a very, very good day.
St. Dominic senior Jack Zagaja lived up to his name Monday, hitting three (THREE!) home runs in a 16-5 win over Holy Trinity in CHSAA.
He blasted a two-run shot in the first, launched a solo home run in the fourth, and belted another two-run jack in the fifth. He finished with four runs and five RBIs. But he only went 3-for-4. What...Read more »
After winning the CHSAA winter intersectional championships, St. Anthony’s looks poised for another strong season in spring. A second place finish at the Knight-Time Invitational, held last Saturday at Uniondale High School, featured a number of strong performances from some of the same athletes that made the Friars’ winter season so special.
Melissa June won the 100 meters in 12.42 seconds,...Read more »
Nassau boys lacrosse top performers for the period April 9-15:
1. Tim Muller, Chaminade
After Chaminade’s win against Manhasset last week, coach Jack Moran said, “People sitting in the stands look for stats, but our kids know they get to play on offense because we’re really good on the other end.”
Senior Tim Muller is a big reason why. He held Manhasset’s top scorer, Mike Fahey,...Read more »
St. John the Baptist sure didn’t play like a fatigued team without its best player Thursday.
Without Tim Nowak (injured) and playing for the fifth time in seven days, SJB defeated host St. Mary’s, 8-2, in a CHSAA boys lacrosse game. Filling the void left by Nowak, who coach Larry Collins describes as the quarterback of the offense, Christian Turri racked up three goals and an assist.
“Turri...Read more »
The success of any hockey team starts with the goaltender, and for St. Anthony's this season, Daniel Peterson was no exception.
Just try telling that to him.
The senior netminder went 10-1-1 allowing just 13 goals in 12 regular season games with four shutouts, and continued to shut teams down throughout the CHSHL playoffs as he led the Friars to a second consecutive league championship.
But...Read more »
Before the season, St. Anthony’s boys lacrosse coach Keith Wieczorek said the team would have a bit of a different feel to it this year because he believed his players would have to create offensive opportunities.
In past years, St. Anthony’s didn’t need much creativity. Sheer talent was enough, evidenced by four straight CHSAA championships. And it’s not as if they’ve been getting shut down...Read more »
Pop quiz, Long Island high school lacrosse fans.
When was the last time St. Anthony’s or Chaminade did not enter the boys lacrosse CHSAA season as a defending champion?
It was 1987 (Holy Trinity won the 1986 title), and the Friars and Flyers are expected to match up in the 2013 title game, which is a good thing, of course, for Chaminade’s seniors.
But here’s the not-so-good thing...Read more »
