Spring Sports Back In Action


trinity-IThe spring break is over and Roslyn High School sports teams are back in action for the stretch run of the spring season.

The boys’ tennis team, which went into the break with an undefeated record, lost its first game of the season to archrival Jericho, 5-2 on Saturday, April 18. Prior to that match, Roslyn had won three straight, including a April 14, 6-1 win over Friends Academy. In that match, Simon Adler won a big singles game to lead Roslyn to victory.

As of press time, Roslyn’s record is 3 and 1. Upcoming matches include a Wednesday, April 22, home rematch with Syosset at 4:30 p.m. and a Friday, April 24, home match against Garden City, which also starts at 4:30 p.m.

Another Roslyn squad with a winning record is the girls’ softball team.

On Thursday, April 17, the Lady Bulldogs lost a close one to South Side, 4-2. That followed a convincing 11-3 away game win over West Hempstead.

In that game, Nicole Lang and Megha Schmaizie both had three hits, with Schmaizie driving in four runs with a home run and a double and Lang pitching seven strong innings on the mound.

On Thursday, April 23, Roslyn will play a 4:30 p.m. away game at East Rockaway. Two days later, they will entertain Carle Place in a 10 a.m. home game.

In lacrosse action, both the boys’ and girls’ squads enjoyed impressive triumphs last week.

On Friday, April 17, the Bulldogs defeated Roosevelt, 14-2 to maintain a winning 2-1 record in Conference B-II play. Jordan Steinfast had another high-flying performance, scoring six points on four goals and two assists. Brett Hollander had five points and four Bulldogs: Zach Feldman, Jordan Hurwitz, Bryce Rubenstein and Brett Rothberg all had two points each. Roslyn will play two road games in the coming week.

On Saturday, April 25, Roslyn will travel to Division High School for a 10:30 a.m. game. On Tuesday, April 28, they will play a 4:30 p.m. away game against Plainedge.

Meanwhile, the girls’ lacrosse team got back in the win column with a 15-10 win over Glen Cove. Molli Spencer was a scoring machine, notching five goals to pace the Roslyn offense. Spencer was assisted by the reliable trio of Reilly Liotta, Samantha Busch and Callie Midgen.
