Siobhan Merrill was racing to the goal with no one to stop her, except Elwood/John Glenn goalie Sylvanna Polito. An excellent scoring chance beckoned.

With Polito at her mercy, though, Merrill stunned observers by darting an unexpected pass to a Bishop McGann-Mercy teammate sliding in from the left side. The teammate missed the ball and groans could be heard on the McGann-Mercy sideline.

Mattituck-Mercy girls track 041816

While the final event of the evening played out, the real drama occurred on the infield grass at Bishop McGann-Mercy Diocesan High School’s Harold T. Murray Memorial Field. Mattituck assistant coach Julie Milliman and McGann-Mercy coach Collin Zeffer knelt down on the infield grass with pens and paper in hand, calculating the scores of the various events in their girls track and field meet.

Then, when the high jump results were conveyed to them, they came up with the final score: 73-73.

A tie. Dead even.

Bishop McGann-Mercy softball coach Jackie Zilnicki 041516

Bishop McGann-Mercy track athlete Dale Kelly 041216

The Bishop McGann-Mercy Diocesan High School boys track and field team has a lot more than two future college athletes in Alex Frabizio and Dale Kelly. That duo also serves as de facto assistant coaches and recruiters.

Bishop McGann-Mercy lacrosse player Savannah Hauser 040616

With 16 of its players having made a recent class trip to Italy, the Bishop McGann-Mercy Diocesan High School girls lacrosse team had not practiced in two weeks. On top of that, the Monarchs are short on precious experience.

As if all of that didn’t augur well for the Monarchs, Elwood/John Glenn was in town to play them in their season opener. John Glenn is a good team, with talents like Victoria Tsangaris and draw expert Amelia Biancardi. READ
