Saturday, Oct. 6, 2018: Bethpage's DiPrima wins 600th volleyball match

   Leading off today: Bethpage girls volleyball coach Anne DiPrima won her 600th match Friday as the Golden Eagles scored a straight-sets win over Great Neck South.

   DiPrima, who is in her 49th season and retired from teaching in 2012, is the first Long Island coach in the sport to reach 600 wins.

   "Along the years, I've had wonderful athletes and individuals who've worked really hard for me," she said. "They're part of the legacy and part of the history."

   Big performance: Elizabeth Brissette scored her team's first six goals as Mamaroneck earned an 8-1 field hockey victory over Arlington.






   The New York State Public High School Athletic Association lists the single-game record for goals as seven by three players, most recently West Seneca East's Julia Suriani in 2010.

   Coaching appoint- ments: Mike Lewis is the new boys basketball coach at Baldwinsville after having run the JVs the previous three seasons. Lewis, 30, takes over from Tim Solomon, who went 61-113 over nine seasons and wasn't retained.

    • Fayetteville-Manlius has appointed Luke Tucci to coach its boys basketball team, Tucci, 26, replaces replace Jason Dudzinski, who stepped down after a 10-30 mark in two seasons to spend more time with his family.

   Tucci was on the SUNY Oswego staff the past two seasons.

    • Justin Santonocito is the new baseball coach at Canisius as the replacement for Bryan Tenney, who retired from the post he'd held since 1991. Santonocito operates a baseball academy in Blasdell.

   Under Tenney, Canisius won 13 Georgetown Cup championships.

    • Rich Bernstein, who retired after 35 seasons coaching cross country at Ithaca, has signed on as an assistant for Tompkins Cortland Community College as it starts up its new program next fall. The head coach is Peggy Dunham, who previously coached the modified teams at Groton.

   Resource deficit: The Journal News wrote this weekend about the struggles of the Mount Vernon football program, which has no modified or JV squads and currently no home field to play or practice on.

   The held is inaccessible due to an ongoing renovation project that is expected to wrap up by the end of the school year.

   More reading: I poked around awhile on Saturday at Penfield's boys volleyball tournament, which featured a blend of very good Division I and II teams.

   Mixing strong teams from different classes -- like defending NYSPHSAA champs Penfield and Eden -- raises the quality of play in any sport. It's one of the reasons I cited for loving cross country invitationals, which I wrote about this week for PressConnects.com.
