Smithtown animal group rescues dog near death By Victoria Espinoza victoria@tbrnewspapers.com A Smithtown-based animal rescue group is continuing to guard the community’s most vulnerable. Guardians of Rescue, a nonprofit organization, rescued Tito, a seven-year-old Argentine Mastiff who was found in a junkyard in New Jersey Feb. 2. The group works to provide aid to animals in distress, including facilitating foster programs, rehabilitation and assisting other rescue groups. The Guardians said Tito was mistreated, neglected and was near death when they rescued him. “This dog was in such horrible condition that he could barely walk,” Robert Misseri, founder and president of the nonprofit, said in a statement. “He has been severely neglected and it’s so sad to see. We had to act and do what we can to change things for him.” According to the group, a good Samaritan in the New Jersey community originally found Tito and told the Guardians about the condition he was living in. The community member said they attempted many times to get Tito’s owner to surrender the dog to no avail, and eventually the Guardians were called in to help. Tito had been living in a mechanic’s shop his whole life and may have been being used for breeding purposes. When rescued he had severe ear infections in both ears, which has lead to hearing loss, was 35 pounds under-

He was also filthy and had teeth that were decaying. The owner wanted to continue breeding Tito, despite the fact he was emaciated and could barely walk, the group said. After being evaluated by the resident veterinarian, he and members of the Guardians convinced the pet owner to surrender Tito. “No one knows how much longer he would have survived, but for however long

it was painful each day just for him to live,” Dr. Marvin “Moose” Baynes, the Guardians’ resident veterinarian, said in a statement. “Tito is recovering and doing well. He’s lucky to have been rescued and we will do all we can to help him make a recovery.” The group is ensuring he gets the proper medical care he needs, and will work to find him a proper and loving home where he can live out the rest of his life. Tito is currently living with Baynes as

he continues to have his health evaluated and receive treatment. Last month, the Guardians rescued a dog named Bear who had been living chained to a doghouse for 15 years. He was adopted in January and now is in a safe and happy home. Guardians of Rescue has a new show called “The Guardians,” which airs on Animal Planet on Saturdays at 10 p.m. To learn more about the nonprofit or to donate, visit www.guardiansofrescue.org.

Smithtown artist finds inspiration in ‘saintly’ heritage By Donna newman Donna@tbrnewspapers.com Smithtown resident Donna Gabusi creates art full time, and the piece she submitted to the third annual LIMarts members-only exhibition — titled LIMarts: Inspired By… — has a particularly inspirational backstory. Gabusi, one of the 94 artists who participated in the show, is the first artist this writer interviewed for Times Beacon Record Newspapers as a feature reporter in 2004. We met at the exhibition at the Long Island Museum in Stony Brook, which closed at the end of January.

Is this the first time you’ve exhibited work at the Long Island Museum?

Yes. This is my first time. I’ve just recently learned about LIMarts and decided to join. Once you’re a member, you get to exhibit at several events during the year.

The title of the show is Inspired by… Can you tell me the inspiration for the sketch on display in the show?

My mom gets the credit. We saw a news program a few years ago about Sister Miriam Teresa Demjanovich, a nun from New Jersey, who got official recognition from the Catholic Church for performing a miracle. It took 50 years for this to happen. There was a boy who was blind, who got his sight back by praying to Sister Miriam Teresa nearly 40 years after her death. Through red tape,

paperwork that got lost and years later was found, the church finally conferred with ophthalmologists who reviewed the boys’ medical records and could find no explanation for why he got his sight back. The church declared it a miracle. It made the news because Teresa was one of the few nuns born in the U.S. — in Bayonne, New Jersey — who is on track to become a saint. One more [confirmed] miracle and she becomes a saint! When that miracle happens — who knows? It could be another 50 years. I’m hoping I’m still alive. When we saw this on TV, my mom said, “Wait, that picture looks so familiar. We have her prayer card.” So we located the prayer card and there, in my grandmother’s handwriting was the word “cousin” written at the top of the card. So now I thought, I’ve gotta find out about her. We’re cousins.

So how did you proceed?

I’ve been researching online and looking for help, asking all kinds of people. I’ve gone back several generations. But it’s hard. The family is from Slovakia — the records are over there — and they’re not in English. But I have found a long-lost cousin. She lives in Florida and has been helping me get the family figured out. It’s pretty cool.

Were you interested in geneaology before this?

No. Who you are is who you are. The past is the past. But since digging and digging, it’s become, “Wow.” I’ve learned a lot

above, artist Donna Gabusi smiles; right, Gabusi’s artwork. about researching family history.

How did the sketch come about?

I just decided one day to draw her face. I thought it would be interesting to blend her face as a civilian with her future face — a girl becoming a nun. She died so young. She was only 26 — in 1927 — when she developed appendicitis. I used her college photo as her civilian face and blended it with her face in a habit, as it appeared in a later photo.

I noticed the piece is marked NFS —

not for sale.

When I completed her portrait, I decided to look into making limited-edition high-quality prints that I could sell to raise money for the Sisters of Charity in Convent Station, NJ. I’d like to make people aware of who she was. She was not some mystical being. She was a real person. I’m not sure how to go about this part, but I’ve already learned so much because of her. I’m hopeful someone will come along to help me. I wish I’d known her.

Fort Salonga Association split on rezoning, leadership By Victoria Espinoza victoria@tbrnewspapers.com The Fort Salonga Association has been divided over rezoning the Indian Hills Country Club, and at the annual general meeting in January members gathered to voice opinions on the board’s decision to send a letter to Huntington Town Supervisor Frank Petrone (D) supporting the rezoning. The members also voted to keep current President Frank Capaccio in power, instead of replacing him with challenger Joan Bubaris. Earlier this year, Jim Tsunis, of the real estate developer The Northwind Group, applied to Huntington Town to change the zoning for the property from 1-acre single family to open space cluster district, in the hopes of building homes on the property. In November, the FSA board voted to support the proposal in order to preserve the golf course for the residents of Fort Salonga. Capaccio wrote a letter to members explaining why the board reached the decision. “Our organization, for 70 years, has always been an advocate for what is best for the community at large,” Capaccio said in the letter. “While some feel the golf course should remain untouched and others feel 100-plus single family homes are a better alternative than townhouses, we disagree. The main purpose of establishing our organization was to preserve the quality of life and open space in our hamlet. Preserving the golf course does this.”

At the Jan. 31 meeting, more than 150 members gathered to weigh in, with residents both criticizing Capaccio for what they saw as a rash decision and others supporting the board’s action. “We felt the preservation of open space was the best thing for the community,” Capaccio repeated at the meeting, before being interrupted by a resident who asked why there wasn’t a forum for residents to voice their opinions on this issue. “The issue was the process, not just the decision, but the way this was slipped through,” one member said. Capaccio said there were a number of meetings held to discuss this issue, including meetings with Petrone, the Fort Salonga Property Owners Association and other communities that developed properties like this — but members argued they weren’t public. Members questioned why the board made a decision before the environmental study was completed. “The environmental study is going to be either a positive declaration or a negative declaration,” Capaccio said. “No one can determine or change the outcome of that. If it fails the environmental study nothing can be done.” Members continued to press. “So then why not wait until it’s completed?” one attendee asked. “You’re supposed to represent us. We need a new president.” Capaccio answered that claim. “Let’s see how many people feel that way,” he said. “We’ll know tomorrow.”

the proposed plan for the indian Hills country club.

In the end the majority of the FSA did not want new leadership, as Capaccio was voted in for a second term with 95 votes to Bubaris’ 83. The organization hired an independent accountant to tally the votes to ensure there was no wrongdoing. Bubaris said a new voice was needed to lead the association in the right direction.

“[Capaccio] has not been much of a leader, he’s been more of a dictator,” she said in a phone interview. “This election had to do with the lack of transparency and the behind the scenes decisions that have been made.” Bubaris said she felt she needed to step up and run for president because there wasn’t a working board anymore, and she feared the organization wouldn’t make it another year. Since the election results were posted, Vice President Will Safer has resigned from his post, as has board member William Berg, according to Bubaris. She also said she would resign as of Tuesday night’s meeting. “It’s really disappointing that this behavior is being accepted — but I don’t accept it,” Bubaris said. “He [Capaccio] seems to have his own agenda and to my surprise, board members back him.” Bubaris said she anticipates the open seats will be filled with like-minded people which is detrimental to the FSA as well. “It’s just not a working board,” she said. “It needs to be brought into the 21st century with open discussions.” The proposal includes plans to build 108 townhomes and two cottages in several areas on the golf course. Northwind refers to the townhomes as houses for a 55-and-over community, and said their plan will preserve 120 of the 143 acres at Indian Hills, won’t impact the views of the club from Breeze Hill Road and Fresh Pond Road, and will preserve the character of the neighborhood.

Just the way you look (in town hall) tonight By Victoria Espinoza victoria@tbrnewspapers.com For 22 years Cupid has visited Huntington Town Hall for Valentine’s Day and spread his love throughout the building — with the help of Town Clerk and Marriage Officer Jo-Ann Raia. Raia has been serving as marriage officer for the town since 1989, and in 1995 she started a tradition of a “marriage marathon.” “I normally perform marriage ceremonies year round,” she said. “However in 1995 I thought it would be romantic to begin a Valentine’s Day marriage ceremony marathon. The couples I united over these past

years received this idea enthusiastically. It is a privilege and a pleasure for me to unite these couples and to share in their happiness as they embark on their new lives together.” The free event consists of couples partaking in a small marriage ceremony with Raia presiding, and then the new bride and groom cut a cake and enjoy drinks and snacks with their guests, donated by local vendors, as well as gifts for the couple and the maid of honor and best man. This year 11 couples were wed in town hall. Local merchants have donated flowers, baked goods, decorations and other gifts throughout the years, and this year Raia said 34 businesses have donated to the event, including Copenhagen Bakery, The

Flower Petaler, Rise Above Bakery, Fashion in Flowers and more. Huntington residents Brian Walling, 42, and Cari Endres, 40, took advantage of this romantic event after finding out about it while paying off a parking ticket. “It was the last day before I got another $100 charge and I saw the flyers when I was at town hall,” the bride said. “I asked him if he was working Valentine’s Day, and he said no, so I told him ‘we’re getting married on Valentine’s Day.’” The couple met at a bar while skiing in Vermont two years ago. “We were basically both watching TV rooting against the Patriots, because we’re both Giants fans and then I don’t think

we’ve ever been apart since that night,” Endres said. Walling said the hug the first night ensured him that Endres was the one for him. “The conversation was fun and we definitely had a lot in common and we were just having a good time, but what sealed the deal was the hug,” he said. “It was the best hug ever.” Walling proposed last July while the pair were spending July 4th weekend with family at Endres’ family lake house. “My father passed away three years ago and he knew how special the lake house was to me,” Endres said. “We were up there with family after a lobster dinner sitting under tiki torches in bathing suits still and that was it.”

Smithtown Historical Society’s chili/chowder bowl cook-off On Friday, Feb. 3, Smithtown Historical Society hosted its first Chili/Chowder Bowl Contest. The event was a huge success. Food is always a large part of any social gathering. There were quite a few submissions this year and the event attracted almost 75 people. Esteemed judge, Bradley Harris, presi-

dent of Smithtown Historical Society, selected the winners of the contest. First place winner was Marianne Howard, the runner-up was Megan Gandolfo and third place went to Gina Caspe. People’s Choice award was won unanimously by Caspe, of Nesconset. The society congratulates all the winners and thanks all participants for

their contributions. The society would like to thank our judge, and a special thanks to Inge Sobel and Ruth Krowles. Among the participants were Eileen Caufield, Tom Hartick and board member, Kathy Tusa. Smithtown Historical Society works to preserve the historic properties in its town

and seeks to expand and improve upon programs for both adults and children while sharing Smithtown’s rich history. All these activities require funding, and the society has been fortunate enough to have the support of its wonderful friends and neighbors in Smithtown.

Claxton, Grabowski place first for Smithtown schools By Kevin Redding kevin@tbrnewspapers.com When Huntington head coach Ron Wilson and his winter boys’ track and field team stepped into the Suffolk County state qualifier meet at Suffolk County Community College in Brentwood, they had one thing on their mind: redemption. And that’s exactly what they felt when they went home. In the last couple weeks, the Blue Devils had experienced their fair share of shortcomings, notably during its Armory Track Invitational Feb. 3, when senior Shane McGuire, a leg of the team’s 4×400-meter relay, tore his hamstring. The next day, at the large school county championship, the Blue Devils’ top sprinter Kyree Johnson felt a tweak in his own hamstring before competing in the long jump and, at the request of Wilson, sat out of competing altogether. The team ended up losing the county championship 52-51. Had Johnson jumped that day, they would’ve won, the coach said,

but it wasn’t worth the risk. It was that tight loss that hurt them most, dropping from first to fourth in local published polls — only fueling the fire that would light up the track in Brentwood Feb. 13. “Before we started, I said to the boys, ‘alright fellas, everyone thinks we’re not as good as we used to be, but we need to go out here and prove them wrong,’” Wilson said. “At the meet, we let everything take care of itself and when we finally started running, I was like ‘redemption at last.’” That redemption came in the form of collaborative speed and agility. Johnson, whose week of resting paid off, placed first in both the 55-meter dash, with a personal best time of 6.41 seconds, and 300 dash, with a meet-record time of 34.8, qualifying him to compete in the state championships March 4 at Ocean Breeze Athletic Complex on Staten Island. “After I won the 55-meter dash and saw my time of 6.41, that made me realize that I’m not hurt anymore,” Johnson said. “I just relaxed and stayed calm, and looked at it like

every other meet ... because if I didn’t, I’d start making myself nervous, so I just kept thinking ‘it’s just another regular meet.’” Running the anchor leg, he also helped the Blue Devils take home gold in the 4×400 relay in a time of 3 minutes, 32.15 seconds, along with teammates Lawrence Leake, a senior, Mark Rafuse, an eighth-grader, and Anthony Joseph, a senior. The Huntington teammates will be joining Johnson at the state championship March 4. Leake also took gold in the 600 run and broke the meet record with a time of 1:21.70. The record was previously held by Brentwood’s Greg Santiago, who finished in 1:21.99 in 2000. “During the race, I figured everyone else was going to get out pretty hard the first two laps to make sure I wasn’t going to catch them, so I just stayed close and in striking distance until the last lap and put the pedal to the metal and let it go,” Leake said. “It feels pretty good to have a record beat all by myself.” Smithtown West senior and state qualifier Michael Grabowski had a similar strategy on

his dash to first place in the 3,200 run, which he finished in 9:29.19. Competing against Jack Ryan of Westhampton Beach and Jonathan Lauer of Sachem North, Grabowski knew he had to play it smart by feeling the race out for the first five laps, and push it for the final sixth. “I was comfortable with my pace and stuck with Lauer, until Ryan made a move and went past him with about 300 meters to go, and opened the race up,” he said. “As soon as Ryan went past Lauer, I followed Ryan and waited until the last lap and kicked. Once I started my kick, there was no going back and he didn’t really have a chance.” Marius Sidlauskas of Smithtown East placed third in boys’ 1,600 with a time of 4:29.40; Daniel Claxton of Smithtown East placed first in boys’ high jump with a jump of 6 feet, 10 inches; Elijah Claiborne, Isaiah Claiborne, Tyler Dollhausen and Dan O’Connor of Northport placed first in boys’ 4×800 relay in 8:09.76; and Ryann Gaffney of Huntington placed fourth in girls’ 55 hurdles with a time of 8.75.

A couple gets married during Huntington’s marriage marathon.

Celebrating community love North Shore residents shared their love and affection for one another this Valentine’s Day, but in one town, love spread literally throughout every corner of Main Street. Huntington Town Clerk Jo-Ann Raia hosted the town’s annual marriage marathon, an event in which Raia performs marriage ceremonies for as many couples as she can throughout Feb. 14. Each couple is treated to a free, romantic ceremony and a small reception. The event is the epitome of “it takes a village” and is a beautiful example of a town coming together in the most supportive way. More than 30 local merchants donate cakes, cookies, decorations and flowers to help bring the marriage marathon to life. After each couple is married, they’re also given a variety of gift certificates and grab bags from businesses in the village, and a local photographer has donated his time for the past two decades to document each ceremony and send the couple their photos free of charge. Raia, at the helm, came up with the idea in 1995 and has not slowed down. She’s married more than a dozen couples in some years, and she and the rest of her office staff spend hours the day before transforming Huntington Town Hall into Cupid’s home away from home. Raia, who has saved a photo of herself with every bride and groom she has joined together in the past 22 years, brings joy and warmth to every ceremony she performs. This is a tradition of which the Town of Huntington and the many people who come together to help make Valentine couples’ special day as perfect as possible should be proud. As a local paper covering local news, it’s events like this that remind us how lucky we are to cover unique communities, where people genuinely care about their neighbors and want their lives to be as special as possible.

Travel ban executive order is “un-American” “I’ve spoken of the shining city all my political life … In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here.” President Ronald Reagan expressed these views during his farewell address in 1989. How can America be the shining city on a hill when we are closing our doors to refugees, and building a wall along the southern border? Of course we all want America to be safe and we don’t want immigrants taking jobs from native-born Americans. But the

evidence suggests that immigrants commit crimes at a lower rate than native-born Americans; no individuals from the seven recently banned countries have killed Americans for decades; and that immigration, in general, has a net positive effect on federal, state, and local budgets. Therefore, this anti-immigrant, anti-Islamic, anti-Latino fervor being propagated by our president is not about safety or jobs; it is about discrimination on the basis of race, religion, and nationality – plain and simple. As Pope Francis said on Saturday “it’s hypocrisy to call yourself a Christian and chase away a refugee or someone seeking help, someone who is hungry or thirsty, toss out someone who is in need of my help.” This past Saturday, students,

family members and loved ones from Islamic countries en-route to the U.S. were turned away at the border, strip searched, and humiliated. Why? Because of their religion and the color of their skin. This is as un-American as it gets. Thankfully, several Republican representatives and senators broke with their own party, acknowledging this cruelty. I especially want to thank Senators John McCain (R-Arizona) and Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) for their public statement against this cruel policy. Where was our Representative, Lee Zeldin (R-Shirley)? Same place he always is — behind President Trump. What a sad day to be an American and a Long Islander.

Jaymie Meliker Port Jefferson

Donald Trump restore the ‘Greatest Generation’ I am a veteran of The Greatest Generation, and now my heart bleeds for what is occurring to our nation since 1945, a lifetime of 72 years. Our last total victory ended in the defeat of Japan. All other conflicts have resulted in “no win wars.” This guilt must be placed directly upon political

policies of past administrations. It is time for our nation to once again forge forward with the wisdom and the courage of our past patriots who made America the greatest nation in the world. Our new administration must recreate The Greatest Generation once again. Dark clouds of dan-

ger now threaten the survival of our republic. I pray that our creator gives you the wisdom and the courage, Mr. President, to guide and protect you in your crusade to make America great again.

OpiniOn The funny side of getting older

I

was watching television late at night, after my wife drifted off to sleep, when I first saw him. I don’t tend to stop channel surfing when a comedian appears. He looked like a friend of mine, he had a devilish smile and he wasn’t shouting or barking obscenities at me. He was balding and overweight and was the definition of unglamorous. He was talking as if I was in the room with him and he was sharing observations with me. I’m going to paraphrase one By Daniel Dunaief of the first jokes I heard. “Getting old sucks,” he began. “You know, when you’re in your 20s and you come in and tell the

D. None of the above

doctor your shoulder is bothering you, you have, like a hundred options. The doctor can take a piece of your hip and put it in your shoulder, he can make you a new shoulder, and he can fix you right up so you’re good as new.” The audience nodded appreciatively. “But, then, you get older and you go to the same doctor with the same complaint and you wait. The doctor smiles at you and listens to your symptoms but, then, he doesn’t offer any heroic solutions. He gives you that understanding look.” “So, what can we do about this?” you say. “Well, you can take some Advil if you want,” he says with a shrug. “But what about all those other options?” you ask. “What about moving around body parts, building a new shoulder and fixing me up so I’m better than I was?” “Those are no longer possible,” he says, as he shakes his head slowly. Getting old is difficult. I know doctors and lifestyle coaches and

entire industries are dedicated to reversing the effects of aging. Lines on your face? Hey, no problem, there’s a cure for that. Putting on weight as you age? Sure, we can fix you right up, send you food, cook food for you, or convince you through hypnosis that you, in fact, don’t need food. If a character Tom Hanks played in “Cast Away” could survive for several years on an island by himself with just a volleyball for his friend and a few fish and coconuts here and there, you can most certainly get through a day without coffee, doughnuts or any of the other bare necessities that call to you from the addicted parts of your bodies. When our kids were small, we used to pack the back of the car with everything we might need. Pack ‘N Play? Check. Stroller? Check. Diaper bag? Got it. As they got older, we didn’t have much to bring and just told them to get in the car and buckle themselves in.

Somewhere along the lines, though, as our kids needed less to go from point A to point B, we wanted more. Our conversations before we leave the house go something like this. “I can’t find my vitamins,” my wife says. “Did I take one this morning?” “I don’t know, but do you know where my reading glasses are?” I ask. “No, but when you start looking for your distance glasses, they’re on your forehead,” she smiles, pointing at me. “Oh, good, thanks. Have you seen my Invisalign braces?” I ask. “I’m not sure if the ones in the kitchen are your new ones or your old ones, but there’s a set on the counter,” she offers. As I scoop up my plastic braces, I see something familiar next to them. “Hey, honey?” I shout. “Your vitamins are on the kitchen table.” Getting old may be challenging but it can also be comical. Just ask comedian Louis C.K.

Women putting retirement on hold for jollies and more

T

he headline spoke to me: “More Women in Their 60s and 70s Are Having ‘Way Too Much Fun’ to Retire.” After reading the article, which didn’t disappoint, by Claire Cain Miller in last Sunday’s New York Times, even though I’ve been at odds lately with The Times, I think there is more to the story than fun. Two recent analyses indicate that “women have become By Leah S. Dunaief significantly more likely to work into their 60s and even 70s, often full time” and “many of these women report that they do it because they enjoy it,” according to the article. For those 65-69 years of age,-the

Between you and me

numbers have almost doubled since the late 1980s from 15 percent to nearly 30 percent. Perhaps more surprising is the leap in percentage terms for those 70-74 years of age, more than doubling from 8 to 18 percent. Who are these women? Those working are more likely to be higher educated and to have savings, studies have shown, while those not working more commonly are in poor health and have low savings, depending on Social Security and perhaps disability. But for their health problems, they too might be among those working. Why, if they don’t strictly need the money, are the women of “a certain age” still working? I can offer some of the answers from my own life. Working, full or part time, is more than just “fun,” although there is nothing wrong with enjoying one’s work. A job can offer a purpose to those who are now empty nesters or perhaps without spouses. There is satisfaction in having one’s

daily accomplishments measured in some way, whether with salary or by problems solved. Presumably holding a job offers something of value to community and society. There is also the social aspect of interacting with others and working as a team. Social ties are linked to longer life spans. In addition, working, unless at a job that is exactly the same each day and could be done by a robot, requires thinking and planning, which in turn helps exercise the brain. And the structure that reporting for work imposes in the course of a week might be welcomed by many. Sometimes working might be a way to preserve a marriage. In a household where the husband might have been the sole breadwinner but is now retired, the spouses might not be completely comfortable with that new arrangement. Work is a respected reason to be apart some of each day. There might also be a sort of prestige in still working. When people are retired, they may be

asked, “What did you do?” as if life has now passed them by. That’s opposed to “What kind of work do you do?” Having a job might convey greater importance. If the work one does is inherently engaging and one learns from it and meets interesting people, there might be the motivation to keep one’s hand in and stay abreast of new developments and changes in the field. And no matter how much savings one might reasonably have, drawing down dollars in retirement can be scary. The urge is to stay in place financially and not to drop down. Bringing a stream of income into one’s life can offset that fear. Finally, for many there is the absolute necessity to earn money in order to survive. They may wish to retire but feel they are unable to afford that luxury. Whatever the reasons, society benefits from the continuing efforts of experienced workers. It goes without saying that our newspapers treasure older workers alongside our young.

SportS Smithtown West completes undefeated League III season By Bill landon Colin Powell once said “success is the result of perfection, hard work, learning from failure, loyalty and persistence,” and the Smithtown West boys’ basketball team has used dedication and determination to attain another success this season. On Feb. 13, the Bulls outscored Centereach 59-29 on senior night in the last game of the regular season to remain perfect, at 14-0, in League III. Smithtown West’s seniors started the game off strong, despite four not seeing much playing time this year. Will Kass started the three-point flurry with a shot that gave the Bulls an early 8-0 lead, but Centereach junior forward Chris Witherspoon drained back-toback 3-pointers to make it a two-point game with just over two minutes left in the opening quarter. Centereach would come no closer. Even with a different starting five, the Bulls found their rhythm early. Juniors Chris Crespo and Michael Gannon, and senior Gordon Shouler added shots from beyond the arc to help Smithtown West take a 34-13 advantage into halftime. In total, Smithtown West had eight 3-pointers from six different players. “Our effort is what won this,” Crespo said. “Our seniors gave 100 percent effort and we executed all game. I’m really just in awe as to

Smithtown 59 Centereach 29

how we played together as a team tonight.” Centereach senior Josue Chery opened the third quarter with a trey of his own, to bring the score to 34-16, but Smithtown West’s defensive pressure was more than the Cougars could handle. That pressure keyed in mainly on senior Jon Agostino, who is usually a double-digit scoring threat. Smithtown West held its coach’s nephew to just three points. “I thought the defense was the best part of our game tonight,” Smithtown West head coach Mike Agostino said. The Bulls continued to bank 3-pointer after 3-pointer, as senior Justin Durcan, Crespo and Gannon swished their shots to break the game open at the end of the third. “I was just happy that all of our guys got to play,” Gannon said. “We have four seniors who don’t play as much and it was fun to watch them play well.” Durcan finished atop the scoring sheet with 14 points. Crespo followed with 11 points, Gannon added nine and senior Chris VanderBrink tacked on seven. “I think coming out hot and confident — even though we’re not the regular starters — that’s what made us so comfortable,” Durcan said. “It’s our preparation. We work hard every day in practice even if we don’t see much playing time, and I think we work harder in practice than any team in our league, and that helped us today.”

The loss eliminated Centereach from postseason play. The Cougars finished the season with a 9-11 overall mark and 6-8 record in league play. The Bulls, who clinched the league title with a win over Copiague Feb. 2, finished with the best boys’ basketball record in the county, at 19-1. Only one other team, Center Moriches, finished undefeated in conference play. Heading into the postseason on a 15-game winning streak, Crespo said his team will maintain it’s winning attitude. “Once we know who we’ll play,” he said, “the coaches are going to show us the personnel, what they run and what we have to do to defeat them.” But Durcan said his team will remain composed as the No. 4 Bulls prepare to host No. 13 Lindenhurst Feb. 18 at 1 p.m. “We’ve just got to stay poised and don’t expect to win, but the county championship is what we’re shooting for,” Durcan said. “Even though we’re up there [in the rankings], we’ve got to stay humble and hopefully our games will speak for themselves.”
