Regs Rock – A Day To Remember

RegsRock_041814Jimmy Regan was a perfect man in that he put others before himself and made sacrifices – both for his country and in ultimately his life as an Army Ranger. Manhasset native Jack Brennan, who grew up knowing Regan and who now plays for his alma mater of Chaminade, would be the first to admit that he is not a perfect man, but did put on a perfect performance this past Saturday night on the lacrosse field, scoring a hat trick in a 10-5 win against the Indians and giving the Flyers the overall edge 4-3 in the annual charity game held in Regan’s name.

“I didn’t really do much, it was just a lot of feeds on the crease and I just finished and I got lucky,” Brennan said of his on-field performance, especially considering the significant amount of playing time as a junior on the team. [Read more...]

Manhasset Ready To Defend Title

manhassetlaxTo some teams, winning a county championship is a reward for hard work and perseverance. For Manhasset girls lacrosse, being named Nassau County champs is as routine as the academic year coming to a close.

The Indians are coming off another successful year, 16-4, that saw them defeat Garden City 14-8 to win their sixth county title under Head Coach Danielle Gallagher. They went on to defeat Eastport-South Manor 11-7 to claim the Long Island Championship. They moved on to the NYS tournament, but had their run end in the semifinals to Brighton in a 9-8 thriller. The victory over Garden City was especially rewarding because they had not only lost the 2012 county finals to the Trojans, but also suffered a 10-9 regular season defeat in double OT to them on April 11.

The team will be without four of their key players from last year, and 10 seniors in total, but Gallagher is “very confident in the current group of upper classmen”. The team will be returning three All-Americans from last year’s squad; Julia Glynn, Natalie Stefan and Lindsey Ronbeck. All three players will be counted on to lead the Indians back to the top.
