OBHS Kicks Off Fall Intramurals Program
The athletic fields around the Oyster Bay-East Norwich Central School District are showing signs of activity as students in grades 7-12 participate in a new fall intramural sports program designed to offer them a way to stay fit while following health and safety protocols.
More than 200 students registered to play one of seven sports including, soccer, field hockey, tennis, golf, running, football, and multisport/training activities. Students are participating on a staggered schedule in accordance with their learning plans to reduce density and stay within required guidelines.
“It is a great sight to see our students and advisors safely participating in these activities after school,” said Mr. Kevin Trentowski, the District’s Director of Health, Physical Education and Athletics who coordinated the program.
OBHS Musician Earns 2nd All-State Honor
For the second consecutive year, Oyster Bay High School senior Jillian Haguisan was named a New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) All-State Alternate, a distinction that recognizes her as one of the best student-musicians throughout the state. Of the more than 6,500 students that audition during the NYSSMA process, about 900 students are chosen to perform at the conference.
“Being selected for All-State honors, even as an alternate, speaks to a student’s commitment and dedication to excellence” said Mr. Anthony Femino, K-12 Fine and Performing Arts Supervisor. “It is also a testament to the talents and skills of our music staff and the overall quality of our music program.”
