Dear Parents and Student Athletes,
Welcome to the Mineola Public Schools Interscholastic Athletic program! This handbook has been prepared to be used as a reference by our student athletes and their parents/guardians in an effort to define responsibilities as they pertain to the rules and regulations, as well as the policies and procedures for participation in our interscholastic athletic program.
The Mineola Public Schools Interscholastic Athletic program is governed by the regulations of the New York State Commissioner of Education’s basic coed for extra class athletic activities. In addition, Mineola is a member of the New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA). Specific guidelines are established for Middle School students as a part of the NYSPHSAA Modified Interscholastic Sports Program.
We are proud of the effort and accomplishments of all of our athletes and coaches. Our department strives to enhance the student athlete physically, socially and mentally. We encourage our athletes to win without boasting, lose without excuses and never quit. We expect athletes to respect coaches, teammates, opponents and officials and understand that their actions represent all in the Mineola community. Through team concepts of family, sacrifice and discipline students will learn life lessons through sports and mature into better athletes and citizens.
Mr. Ralph Amitrano
District Supervisor of Athletics,

Fourth Place Finish
Mineola's own Phil Macchietto helps lead the Nassau County All-Star team
to a 4th place state finish in the state New York State Public High
School Tournament. This past weekend at AMF Strike and Spare Lanes in
Syracuse our 9th grader Phil Macchiettio competed in his 3rd state
tournament as he was a member of the Nassau County Team. The team is
comprised of the top 6 Bowlers who competed in the Nassau County
Tournament in February.
This year, Phil had the teams second best pin total as he amassed a 1261
series. That means Phil had a 210 average on the day. Phil's high game
of the tournament was in the final game where he bowled a 236. The entire Athletic Department is proud of Phil's accomplishments
this season and we look forward to 3 more years of state Tournament

Convincing Wrestling Win
The Mineola Wrestling team defeated Lawrence High School on Friday in a
convincing fashion. The crowd was excited to cheer in the Mustangs and
after the High School team competed the up and coming Mustang Wrestlers
took the mat. Students in grades 3-7 who participate in district youth
Wrestling clinics took part in a Take Down Challenge !!! It was a great
event for all the wrestlers.
