Local Sports Notes

All-Long Island

Josh Lamison of the Bridgehampton Killer Bees, Charles Manning of Long Island Lutheran (formerly of the Killer Bees), Brandon Kennedy-Gay of East Hampton, and Tristan Wissemann of Shelter Island were listed among Long Island’s top seniors on longislandbasketball.com this week.

In addition, Manning made the website’s all-Long Island team. His fellow Long Island Lutheran guard, Devonte Green, was the website’s player of the year. LuHi recently lost 69-62 to the eventual champion, Thomas Jefferson of Brooklyn, in a Federation Tournament of Champions Class AA semifinal. Green scored 18 points and Manning 11 in that game.

Hartwell Cited

William Hartwell, an East Hamptoner who founded the East End Unity Program, and who for the past decade has taught and coached in suburban Washington, D.C., is to be honored in May by his alma mater, Lincoln University in York, Pa., with its 2016 President’s Award, for “relentless service, leadership, and career achievement.” 

“Servant leadership is a philosophy and set of practices that enriches the lives of individuals, communities, builds better organizations, and ultimately creates a more just and caring world,” a letter Hartwell recently received from the university’s alumni association said in part.

Scholar Teams

Pierson (Sag Harbor) High’s girls and boys basketball teams have once again been cited as scholar-athlete teams by the New York State Public High School Athletic Association. To be recognized as such, a team’s players must have, in the aggregate, grade point averages of at least 90 in their subjects.
