Members of the girls volleyball and boys basketball teams at Woodland Middle School put their love for sports into practice as they raised $325 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
The seventh- and eighth-grade student-athletes participated in a round-robin volleyball tournament on Jan. 11, where teams played each other for five minutes in elimination rounds until two final teams were set to play.
A special thank-you to girls volleyball coaches Patty Burnside and Alexa Borresen and boys basketball coach Michael Magee for organizing this charitable effort.
The W.T. Clarke High School Rams boys varsity basketball team defeated the Division Avenue High School Dragons, 49-40, at Nassau Coliseum on Dec. 23.
East Meadow High School seniors Nickola Pavon and Sara Polansky and W.T. Clarke High School seniors Carlo Ritaccio and Elizabeth Silverman received the Nassau Zone Award for demonstrating superior leadership and physical education skills.
Sponsored by the New York State Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance, the award recognizes one male and one female high school senior from each school district in Nassau County who exemplifies outstanding scholastic ability, physical education performance and leadership qualities.
The district congratulates these four seniors on receiving this prestigious honor.
