Four Falcon wrestlers made their mark at one of the most prestigious wrestling tournaments in the country from Jan. 10-11. The Eastern States Classic brought 500 wrestlers from 174 teams and six states to Loch Sheldrake, New York. 

Senior Gage DeNatale, 132 lbs., took the fourth-place spot in his weight class after seven matches. He started the match seeded eighth out of 47 wrestlers. On his path to the podium, Gage defeated several former state place winners and state champions, putting himself in position to be the top-seeded wrestler when the 2020 state championships take place in Albany this February.

Juniors Jack Croke and Roarke Creedon, along with senior Vincent Marchand, all earned victories in the tournament. 

Congratulations to Gage and all of the incredible Falcon wrestlers.

Two-Time Geography Bee Winner

For the second year in a row, seventh grader John Hartnett took first place in the Locust Valley Middle School level of the National Geographic GeoBee. As a sixth grader, John traveled to Albany after qualifying to compete in the state level of the competition.

With 25 students in sixth, seventh and eighth grade competing on stage at the school-level geography bee, John answered every question correctly, with topics ranging from United States cities to identifying the continent in which a particular city is located. Rowan Shenoy took the second place spot in the competition.

Answering questions based on topics covered in the middle school social studies curriculum, the students earned their spots in the schoolwide competition by first winning at the classroom level.

"This year's competitors were extremely well prepared and knowledgeable,” said coordinator of social studies and business, K-12, Bryan Sarandrea. “Their ability to correctly answer questions that stretched their knowledge base far outside of social studies class was impressive."

John will now take an online test to qualify to compete at the state level again. 

Good luck, John!

Seventh Grader Becomes Two-Time Spelling Bee Champ

An apple a day may keep the doctor away, but for one student a McIntosh made her the Locust Valley Middle School spelling bee champion.

Spelling McIntosh correctly, seventh grader Inshaal Abid took the school title for the second year in a row. Last year, her winning word was “astonishment.” Both as a sixth grader and seventh grader she has beaten her older classmates to the podium.

Sixth grade runner-up Evie Bergman helped prove that age does not guarantee a win. The girls competed among 25 middle school students who had each been the winner in their individual English classes. 

Inshaal now must take a 50-question written computer test to qualify for the Teachers Federal Credit Union Long Island Regional Spelling Bee on March 12, 2020. Each round of competition is part of the Scripps National Spelling Bee.

We are rooting for you, Inshaal!
