Congratulations to Girls Volleyball, Nassau County Class B Champions!

In a tense match against perennial powerhouse Seaford, the Wheatley Girls Volleyball team battled to a 3-0 match victory! In doing so, they earned the Nassau County Class B Championship Crown!

Playing fiercely yet loosly, the girls rallied from behind at times and never gave up!

Girls Soccer Team Loses a Tough Long Island Championship Game in Overtime!

Cecilia Jozef was incredible in goal. Tiffany Bernot scored two goals off of direct kicks. The girls played their hearts out for two 40-minute halves. Then two 10-minute overtime periods. Then two 5-minute Golden Goal overtime periods. Through all of this soccer, the Wildcats remained tied with the Babylon Panthers, 2-2. It was only after the Penalty Kick overtime that the Panthers were declared the Long Island Champions.

Congratulations to the Nassau County Champion Girls Varsity Soccer team for a terrific season!
