Leading off today:
Junior Timmy Na performed one of the rarest feats in golf by acing a par-4 hole
during a match Monday.
Na used a driver on the 296-yard 13th hole at Eisenhower Blue during his Sewanhaka District team's loss to Wantagh. Na lost sight of the ball as it got closer to the hole.
"I thought it went over the green," Na, who attends New Hyde Park High School, told Newsday. "I wasn't sure where the ball went, but one of the Wantagh golfers told me that he didn't think it went over."
As Na walked approached the green, a Wantagh player said to him jokingly, "I think it's in the hole."
And it was.
"I couldn't believe it when I saw the ball in the cup," Na said. "The golfer I was playing with said she had never written a one on the scorecard before."
He finished with a 2-over-par-38.
Coach remembered: A moment of silence was held prior to the St. Joseph by-the-Sea boys' soccer game vs. St. Peter's to honor Vikings girls soccer coach Carmine Cantalino, who died Friday at the age of 61.
Cantalino, a 9/11 first responder and retired NYPD captain, was awaiting a lung transplant after being diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis. He was in his third season as head coach.
"This is the first home game since Carmine passed," Tara Ferraiuolo, who has filled in as head coach, told The Advance. "The boys have been very supportive towards our entire team knowing how hard its been for us to not have him with us anymore. It is one big family."
Earlier Monday, the Vikings girls played their first game since Cantalino's death and defeated Mary Louis Academy 4-0 to improve to 8-0-1. Samantha Monteforte led the team with two goals.
"Everything's for him now," Ferraiuolo said. "We're going to get his name permanently on our shirts. It was difficult but we have to play the season so we're going to make sure everything is for him."
Boys soccer: Evan Bay scored twice and Adam Quaterman assisted three times as Naples defeated Dundee 9-0 to improve to 11-0-1 for the season. Naples, ranked second in Class D by the New York State Sportswriters Association, has outscored the opposition 58-1 this season.
• Timmy Ruzzo had a goal and an assist for Kingston in a 2-1, non-league win over Mount Academy, ranked seventh in the state in Class D. David Trott made eight saves in goal for Kingston.
Girls soccer: Lexi Aquilino, the all-time goal scoring leader in Maryvale girls soccer history, passed the 100-goal career mark in the Flyers' 8-3 ECIC III triumph at Lake Shore. The senior had four goals and four assists in the victory to raise her season totals to 25 goals and nine assists. She has 103 carer goals.
College hoops commitments: Maddy Siegrist, fifth-team all-state in Class AA as a junior at Our Lady of Lourdes last season, will continue her basketball career at Villanova.
The 6-foot-2 forward made her official visit to Villanova over the weekend.
"I knew instantly that's where I belong," she told the Poughkeepsie Journal. "It's a nice town with great sights, the players made me feel welcomed, and I felt at home walking
