Werner Named ‘Teacher of Excellence’ by State Sen. Boyle


Janet Werner, a longtime educator at the high school, was recently named a Teacher of Excellence. This new award, created for National Teacher Appreciation Week, was sponsored by State Sen. Phil Boyle.

Boyle hosted an inaugural Teachers of Excellence awards ceremony on May 5 at the Bay Shore Fire Department, honoring Werner and 14 other Long Island honorees that he called “our best and brightest teachers who deserve recognition for their dedication to preparing our children for the future.” She attended with her family.

Trio of Falcons Sign College Letters


High school seniors Ayinde Briggs, Victoria Major and Adam Zimmerman signed National Letters of Intent on May 16 to continue their athletic careers in college next fall. They were congratulated by their proud families and Athletic Director Dominick Fontana.

Briggs will play football at Malone University in Canton, Ohio this fall, where he plans to major in nursing.

“I liked the vibe of the campus, and the way they treat their players,” he said about his selection of Malone.

A well-rounded All-County athlete, Briggs was named MVP of the Falcons this season.

Major will join the track team at Adelphi University in Garden City, where she plans to study social work and education.

“The location was important, because I wanted to be close to my family,” Major said regarding her choice of Adelphi, also citing the school’s educational merits.

Deer Park’s indomitable team captain, Major won the Suffolk County and Long Island high jump championships this year, and finished fourth in the state en route to an All-League and All-County season.

Zimmerman will attend Webber International University in Babson Park, Florida on a bowling scholarship. He will major in sports management.

“Webber was the school I thought I’d fit in the best with, and their bowling program is awesome,” Zimmerman said.

Zimmerman’s remarkable career at Deer Park includes four state titles. This year, he won the high school singles championship at the Suffolk County Singles Doubles Tournament and Suffolk County and bowled 300 games on 10 occasions.

Senior Scholarships Funded by 7-11’s Deer Park Donation

On behalf of the Deer Park Booster Club, Athletic Director Dominick Fontana recently accepted a donation to the club from the local 7-11 on Long Island Avenue in Deer Park. The owner and field consultant of the business presented it to Fontana and the high school junior varsity lacrosse team on May 11. The money was donated through 7-11’s school and sports grant program, and will be used to fund two senior athletic scholarships.

Competition Sparks Top Performances at Track Invitational


Seventeen Long Island boys and girls teams competed at at the third annual co-ed Deer Park Falcons Track Invitational, hosted on May 14.

Notable performances for Deer Park’s boys team included Nick Fenton, who won the 1,600-meter race, and senior Joe Curry, who finished third overall in the 400-meter intermediate hurdles. Both the 4x800-meter and 4x400-meter relay teams earned second place.

For the girls team, captain Victoria Major won the high jump, Lynne Gbadamosi won the shot put throw, Anna Ranni won the 1,500-meter race walk, Ariel McDermott came in second in the 1,500-meter run and the 4x800-meter relay finished second overall.

Daniel Claxton of Smithtown East jumped 6 feet 10 inches in the high jump, the best high jump in New York State for the entire spring 2016 season.

“Both the boys and girls track teams made Deer Park proud today, not only in the way they peformed, but also in the way they represented themselves as the host program,” said Tom Brouillard, boys track and field coach. “Many Deer Park runners had season-best performances. This was complimented by some of the best competition in the state, as we saw with Daniel Claxton of Smithtown East in the high jump, for example. I am confident my girls team counterpart Jim Petti would agree that this was the most successful installment of our invitational yet.”
