The 47 members of the Bellport Middle School football team, coached by Jeffrey Giacomin, Glen McAvoy and Don Schaaf, recently donated $4,200 to the American Cancer Society as part of a Breast Cancer Awareness Month fundraiser.

To garner the funds, the team — which finished the season with a 5-1 record — handed out flyers in school and to family and friends with a QR code requesting that donations be sent directly to the American Cancer Society.

“The boys raised the money in less than a month,” said Giacomin. “They are amazing.”

Saying No to Drugs

South Country Central School District students at Bellport High School and Bellport Middle School marked Red Ribbon Week, Oct. 25-29, by participating in a number of activities.

At the middle school, the theme of “Drug Free Looks Like Me” headlined the week’s activities, which included themed days, a virtual schoolwide assembly focusing on good decision-making, and morning announcements related to Red Ribbon Week. In addition, all students signed a pledge to say no to drugs and received red bracelets.

High school students also signed pledges to say no to drugs and were provided information each day of the week related to drug and alcohol prevention and statistics. Like the middle school students, the high schoolers participated in theme days. The week culminated with a virtual assembly with guest speaker Joe Greco, a perfusionist with Northwell Health. Greco discussed the effects vaping has on the lungs and those with COVID-19.

South Country School District’s fall sports teams excelled throughout the season. They worked hard and displayed both dedication and heart.

“We are very proud of our fall athletes,” said interim Athletic Director Kevin O’Reilly.

Below is a round-up of a few of the highlights from the fall sports season.

The girls middle school tennis team finished an outstanding season with a 5-2 overall record. The members of the team continued to work hard even when they were down players. The athletes were ready and willing to play in any spot that was asked of them.

The boys and girls middle school cross-country season was highlighted by numerous athletes running personal best times. Brendan Fitzgerald, Cooper Scotti and Brian Valand all ran sub-7-minute miles against East Islip Middle School. Ava Cooley ran a personal best 7:12 mile, also against East Islip.

At the high school level, the girls cross-country team had 11 new athletes this year. The team was led by Amber Giaffreda, Jasmyn Jackson, Lexi Kollar and Aarilin Pitre. Athletes Sophia David, Gulia Gannon, Amira Hussein, Sude Maris, Macy Neider, Brenna Porter, Stephanie Rhodas and Erika Wilson, as well as seniors Ryann Christie, Julia Longo and Heather Sponton, helped the team strive for unity. The team is looking forward to their upcoming championship races. In addition, Giaffreda, a sophomore, earned the title of All-League Second Team.

During the season, the middle school’s boys soccer team proved to be a competitive group who continue to excel as they vie against top-tier teams in Suffolk County. All players work hard and always show up prepared on game day.
As a team, the girls learned how to effectively communicate and collaborate both on and off the field. They did a great job this season, working together to reach a common goal while remaining positive.

The girls varsity volleyball team ended the season with a 12-6 record, qualifying for county playoffs. This is the 26th consecutive year that the team has made it to the playoffs.

This year’s varsity boys golf team had an outstanding season. The boys, coached by Jeff Johnsen, finished one win out of second place in a very competitive conference. For the first time in the program’s history, the boys qualified as an entire team for the county championship. The team, led by All-Conference captains Curren Johnsen and Jacob Repper, along with seniors Clayton Canella and Jack Gerard and underclassmen Paul Belmonte and Kyle Katz, set a program record for low team average in match play. Ethan Amendola, Colin Orsino, Antonio Suarez and Connor Wilson also provided support for the team in their quest to reach the county championships.

Dance Team
The high school dance team was busy providing entertainment for the crowds this season. They perfected their dance routines for performances at the homecoming parade, pep rally and varsity football home games.

Falling Into Fun

On the beautiful fall afternoon of Oct. 23, Bellport Middle School students enjoyed an annual fall festival hosted by their school’s student council.

The festival featured bouncy houses, carnival games with prizes, food and raffles. Funds raised through the event will be used to help defray costs associated with middle school events and activities. They will also be put toward local charitable causes to which the student council donates.

“This was a team effort, with teachers and student council members volunteering their time,” said middle school Assistant Principal Reinaldo Latorre.

“The end result was a day of activities and fun.”

Bellport Middle School students learned more about Hispanic culture, language and history as they celebrated Hispanic Heritage Month from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15.

During the monthlong recognition, students watched virtual presentations on the meaning and significance of Hispanic Heritage Month, listened to daily announcements in English and Spanish on inspirational Hispanic Americans, and enjoyed the sounds of Hispanic music while walking to their classes.

The event culminated with a schoolwide contest where students could use a variety of media to express their thoughts on Hispanic Heritage Month.

Taking the top prize for a drawing was eighth grader Hailey Jessenia Valdez Siavichay.
