The Athlete of the Month for the boy’s varsity lacrosse team is starting goalie,

Brian Schindler. Brian has anchored the boy’s lacrosse team throughout this
entire season, leading them to 9 wins and the Nassau County Class C playoffs.
Brian has over 150 saves on the season, which is among the leaders of all
Nassau County goaltenders. His stellar play propelled the team to its first ever
win against Hicksville High School, a team that the boys have played each of the
past 5 years. The team relies heavily on the play of its goaltender, and his
consistency in the net has led this team to continued success on the field.

Alex Gelabert and Jed Kaiser are the athletes of the month for the boys varsity
tennis team. The two juniors have helped the team to stay competitive throughout
the year. Their combined record for the season is 15-5.

-Coach Steinberg
The golf team selects Seve Garcia-Corradi for the May Athlete of the Month. Seve
has worked extremely hard to bring his average down several strokes. Seve is
always supportive of his teammates and demonstrates leadership on and off the
golf course. Seve is a fierce competitor, and is bound and determined to qualify
for the Nassau County Championship Tournament.

-Coach Fox
For such a new team, the Oyster Bay High School Crew Team has risen above
and beyond my expectations for them as novice rowers. Kelsey Maldonado is an
example of an exemplary athlete. As one of the older novices on the team, Kelsey
has set a great example for the younger rowers. She has a good attitude at practice
and is always pushing both herself and her teammates to their limits. Kelsey is
always at practice and is always supporting her teammates. Whether it be her
making sure people come to practice or whether it is her screaming behind the erg
cheering for someone. I am so proud of what you have accomplished Kelz and
look forward to all of the accomplishments to come. Keep pushing yourself and
you will accomplish great things. Good luck to you and all of your amazing
teammates this weekend at states, I am so proud of you all!

Seniors Alex Tosi and Jason Cassella are the Athletes of the Month. Tosi has
recently come within 2 seconds of 2 separate school records- the 3000m Steeple
Chase, and the 3200m. His time of 9:39.6 in the steeple chase placed him 2nd in
the Suffolk Coaches Invitational and set a new OBHS record! He is the only
Bayman other than Shane Giannetti to break the 10 minute barrier in what is
considered by many to be the most taxing event in track and field.
Jason Cassella has been concentrating on his 1600m and 3200m times all
season. Although hampered by injury, soreness and stagnation, Jason has
persevered in the last third of the season, breaking 4:50 in the 1600m in the final
home meet of his career, placing 2nd only to Tosi who ran a time of 4:48.5. Less
than a week later he shattered his own personal record in the 3200m at St.
Anthony's running a time of 10:19.57.
"Jason and Alex have been pretty big fish in a small pond for a couple of years
now. They have led their team in the distance events (mile and 2 mile) and often
run three events in a meet to help their team score. They are the only members of
this team to be under 5 minutes in the mile, and 11 minutes in the two mile. When
they graduate we will have a very difficult time filling the gap that they will leave
behind in our distance programs."
-Coach Cotter & Coach Weber
Two seniors, Dana Galgano and Danielle Sugar, have led the way throughout the
season helping the underclassmen grow as athletes and individuals both on and
off the field. They have taken the younger girls under their wings and guided them
throughout the past couple months. While this team has not seen success
through scores at the end of the game, they have seen an enormous amount of
progress with their softball skills. Thank you to the seniors for guiding the younger
players and setting a great example as to commitment and dedication.
