YORKTOWN HEIGHTS, N.Y.— Yorktown golf coach Skip Marini knew it would take a big day for his young Husker team to match up against a veteran Somers squad when the two teams squared off last Thursday, May 5 at Mohansic Golf Course.

Unfortunately, it was Somers that turned in a big day as the Tuskers put up an impressive team score of 195, led by senior star Christian Cavaliere as he finished three under par with a 32.

“I thought the Somers team was outstanding in their performance, etiquette and class,” Marini said.  “This is a team that I have known about from last year how good they were and with the addition of a few young players they are really a team to be reckoned with. I informed my team a few weeks back that we needed to shoot in the low 200s but I never thought they would come to our home course and throw up a 195.”

In addition to Cavaliere, the Tuskers had five of the top seven scores on the day to pull away for the victory. Jon Henning was second behind Cavaliere with a 37, while teammate Nathan Han was third at 39 for the Tuskers.

Conor Frawley was the top finisher for Yorktown as he was tied for fourth with Tusker Joe Danko as they both shot a 41. Husker Matt Gorstein was right behind in fifth with a 42.

Nick Fierro of Somers was sixth with a 46. Three players were tied for the next spot as Huskers Kevin Glynn and Matt D’Orio, along with Tusker R.J. LaSpina each shot a 48. Yorktown’s Cameron Cuparo was next with a 51, while Husker Ryan Ferrara rounded out the team scoring with a 53.

“Cavaliere had an exceptional round and I was very proud of my number one Conor Frawley, a senior captain, who had a valiant effort to try to keep the pressure on him,” said Marini, who is the Assistant Golf Professional at Mohansic. “Matthew Gorstein, another senior captain, also had a nice round of 42 and I was missing my other big gun in senior captain Aidan D’Alessandro. All three captains have a chance at qualifying for sectionals. It has been a pleasure to have them on the team for the past four years. They all came up through my Junior Program at Mohansic and it has been extremely gratifying to watch them grow and develop.  They will be missed but I am also excited about my three young freshmen Kevin Glynn, Matthew D’Orio and Ryan Ferrara, who will be with me for the next three years.”

With the loss Yorktown fell to 5-3 overall on the year, while the Tuskers improved to 10-2.

What Is Cambridge Analytica?

Cambridge Analytica is a research organization. Apparently, it is funded by the Mercer family, second only to the Koch brothers on the liberal hit list. Both, through their philanthropy, spend millions on various needy organizations like hospitals. What makes them liberal targets is their funding of various conservative think tanks and candidates. I digress.

The Best of the Best: Albert Capellini

In the spring of 1991, after answering an ad for a judicial race placed in the local Yorktown paper, I was talked into the unenviable position of running for Yorktown councilman as a Democrat in our then solidly Republican town.

Having been a practicing lawyer since 1974, I felt confident about my qualifications for the position of town judge, but being elected to the Town Board was quite ...

Cleaning the Empty Nest

Part of the shock of being a part-time empty nester is when the kids come back to visit and I have to watch my house transform overnight from a pristine haven of OCD goodness to a place that looks like an explosion happened at Forever 21.

After my kids moved mostly out, I put away whatever tchotchkes they chose to leave behind and then I put on a hazmat suit and cleaned their rooms until they ...

I am in second grade and have a problem about math. My teacher just keeps giving me homework and it’s driving me crazy. Because she keeps giving it to me on weekends and spring and summer breaks.
