CAREY CLIPPER

VOL. LV No. 3

SPORTS SCENE Spring Track David Nieves Spring has finally arrived, and with it the Carey Spring Track team. Coaches, Mr. Princi and Mr. Insler, are excited for the upcoming year and are optimistic that it will be a successful one. The boys team is led by senior Steven Matthew, who will be aiming for an AllCounty season in the 100 meter and 200 meter dashes. Steve will also team with fellow senior Savan Parker, junior Joe Capobianco, and sophomore John Humrich to form a fast 4 x 100 meter relay team that qualified for the counties last year. The long distance runners are led by junior Mike Falco and have a lot of potential and talent. Humrich is an excellent hurdler, and with senior Chris Martelli, give Carey a solid group of hurdlers. The Nieves brothers can be found long jumping and triple jumping, and David and Chris both look to be in contention for county qualifications. The girls team is very experienced, with many seniors and juniors playing big roles. Senior Carli Messina and junior Alexa Bloore lead the distance runners and seem like they have been running forever. Bloore also plans on competing in the steeple chase, an event that Carey hasn't had a runner compete in for a long time. Junior Nicolette Sands is the top sprinter on the team, and will also compete in the triple jump, along with the 100 meter and 200 meter dashes. Joining her on the sprinting starting line will be sophomore Brianna Ferraro and senior Cassidy Duggan. Cassidy's younger sister, junior Tara, is a great hurdler, and will be looking for an All-County plaque at the end of the year. The year is looking bright for the Carey Spring Track team, and with many home meets this year, be sure not to miss any of the action.

MSG Varsity (Continued from page 3) MSGVarsity gave all of Carey yet another chance to show off the amount spirit students hold for their high school. MSGVarsity began a “School Spirit Mania” contest where people could visit MSGVarsity’s website and vote for whichever school they believed had the most school spirit, based on a picture provided by the school. The exciting picture taken from District Sports Night was able to carry Carey through the first round but in the second bracket Carey came to a narrow defeat. To cushion the blow MSGVarsity has also honored different students for their achievements and showcased Carey throughout their website. ModelUN’s recent trip to Philadelphia was documented while juniors Louie Cona and Val Mendoza were privileged to be interviewed. They also allowed MSGVarsity to follow them through committee to really see how hard members of ModelUN work. Balancing out the academics featured recently, the four main members of this year’s musical, The Wizard of Oz, were interviewed. A video compiling the interviews of Seniors Tara Raymond and Michael Durso, Junior Zachary Fader, and Sophomore Paul Pecorella can be found on MSGVarsity’s website along with an article covering the All District Music Festival. MSGVarsity also returned to cover the various sports played at Carey. Videos and articles can be found on basketball, football, and other Carey sports. Mike Lisi was interviewed about his potential college choices for an article while there is a video of the competition cheerleading team performing at the Long Island Cheerleading Coaches Association Large Squad Competition.

MSGVarsity also covered this year’s District Sports Night and March Jamboree.

Sophomore Sports Night Jeffrey Samuel Sophomore sports night this year was very fun for everyone involved. For the many people who showed up and the many people who participated, it was a very eventful and energetic night. There were many different events and a very close score at the very end. The two teams, orange and black, both worked very hard and led a very intense competition. There were many events like cage ball, hit the deck, tug of war, scooter races and much more. Through the whole event the orange team took the lead but the black team still held a really close score and made it a close game. Everyone was on there toes because the games came so close. The event truly went back and forth. In hit the deck, the black team took the victory, but shortly after that, the orange team quickly took the win for cage ball. It came down to a close ending in the last 2 rounds of tug of war. First, the girls on the black team won for the girls tug of war and tied it up but it came down to the final round of the men’s tug of war. When the game started the black team quickly pulled the flag across the line and gained there team much needed points. Both teams started chanting for each other and for themselves as they waited for the results. In the end the black team had won by a hair. The whole completion was very exciting and a lot of fun, and thanks to all the captains, advisors, and students who had made the whole thing possible.

Carey Baseball Matt Capp “The 2010 Seahawks return to the diamond for the first time since 1970 as County Finalists. Despite the Championship loss in 2009, the Hawks are eagerly awaiting the new season as they hope to complete their "unfinished business" and capture the school's first County Championship!” (http://hfc.sewanhaka.k12.ny.us/baseball/index.htm). It explains it right there: another great season of Baseball on the way! Coaches of Varsity Carey Baseball, Mr. Marc Hedquist and Mr. Mike Farina, look like they’re prepared to lead the team to another great and fun year of baseball! The Carey Seahawks return to the diamond to try and seize the title of County Champs. After last year’s championship loss the Carey Seahawks are more determined than ever to take this title - not to mention the younger prospects in JV and JH. This year’s baseball tryouts seem to have produced some younger members to the JV baseball team. One of these new and young players is Andrew Rise who has proven himself to be a baseball player worthy enough to be on JV while still in the 8th grade. We are still waiting to see what the JH team will yield after the many tryouts that have ensued over the last few weeks. This year is sure to be a great year in baseball. Stay tuned!

“The league is challenging but our pitching and defense should put us in a position to compete with every team.” - JV Baseball Coach Patrick Frino
