Lacrosse Hall Of Fame For Love Of The Game

Laxhalloffame051315A   The Manhasset Lacrosse Hall of Fame held its 27th annual golf classic and induction dinner on May 7 at the Plandome Country Club. The Hall of Fame helps promote, support and foster scholastic team lacrosse for Manhasset Public Schools. The Hall of Fame has been able to direct almost $725,000 for the past 26 years to support the boys and girls lacrosse teams in Manhasset.

This year’s inductees included Jason Buttles ’92, Roger Buttles ’96, Meghan Clarke ’05, Mike Ferrari’99, Patty Anne Kenny Reilly ’86 and Gavin Petracca ’05.

The weather was sunny and gorgeous for the golf classic. Manhasset high school lacrosse senior girls volunteered at the check-in table for the golfers at the Plandome Country Club. The senior girls included Danielle Nicosia, Sarah Phillips, Lindsey Laxhalloffame051315URonbeck, Kathryn Hallett and Madeline Barcia. Inductee and assistant coach Meghan Clarke and Hall of Fame board member Whitney Godfried helped with check in as well. Attendees received a blanket and personalized golf balls.

The dinner was really a record breaker, according to Lacrosse Hall of Fame board member Pam Monfort. “It was standing-room only and a true reunion this year,” said Monfort. “The day was enjoyed by all. Jason Buttles stole the show with his acceptance speech. He had us laughing and crying.”

Patty Anne Reilly gave a wonderful and truly heartfelt tribute to her former Coach Pam Monfort. There were lots of winners of great raffles, silent auctions and live auctions.

Several awards and scholarships were announced at the dinner. Sandy Buttles won the Angela Miller Memorial Award. The Angela Miller award is bestowed on a mother in the community who has encouraged and supported their children and others and has had an impact on the youth in the community. The award is named after Angela Miller, who raised 11 children, all of whom participated in the Manhasset PAL program. She attended virtually every lacrosse game that each of them played, both in high school and college.

The PAL/Baugher annual scholarship for the most dedicated player was awarded to James Thomas and Lindsay Ronbeck. The award honors the memory of the late W. Harry Baugher and Harry L. Baugher, who did so much as coaches for the young athletes of Manhasset. This scholarship is awarded to a senior Manhasset lacrosse player whose qualities include sportsmanship, leadership, teamwork, team spirit, tenacity, sacrifice and love of the game.

RegsRock_041814Last Saturday, Chaminade High School was a fitting place to take in a lacrosse game or several of them if you were so inclined as a fan of the sport. It is fitting that this year the Ranger Lead the Way Fund was hosting their Lacrosse Day for Heroes here, where Jimmy Regan, Jr.—the Army Ranger whose father founded the nonprofit—graduated from in 1998. Fitting that the school’s newly built “Gold Star Stadium” bleachers, named for the 56 alumni of the all-boys private Catholic school who gave their lives in service of our country—including Regan—were filled with a few hundred spectators. Regan, who grew up in Manhasset, attended Munsey Park Elementary School and Manhasset Middle School before he entered Chaminade.  Click here for more photos. [Read more…]
