The district’s athletics and physical education department recently garnered a number of accomplishments based on successes during the 2018-19 school year. 

A number of modified sports teams on the middle school level were recognized by the New York State Public High School Athletic Association for having best exemplified the spirit of sportsmanship during the 2018-19 spring season. The district congratulates the Oakdale-Bohemia Middle School/Ronkonkoma Middle School modified boys swimming team, OBMS modified girls track team, OBMS modified boys lacrosse team, OBMS modified girls lacrosse team and the OBMS modified softball team. 

Additionally, Connetquot High School varsity swim/dive coach Alex Scichilone was recognized as the National Federation of State High School Association’s Coach of the Year for excellence in coaching the Connetquot High School boys swimming and diving team during the 2018-19 season. The organization recognizes active coaches for the 2018-19 school year who coached the top 10 boys and girls sports teams throughout the year. The CHS boys varsity swimming and diving team finished in the top 10 rankings statewide, securing a third-place finish in the county and second place in the league this past season under coach Scichilone’s leadership. 

“On behalf of Connetquot’s athletic department and the school community, we congratulate coach Scichilone on being named the 2019 Boys Varsity Swimming New York State Coach of the Year,” said Connetquot Central School District Director of Health, Physical Education, Athletics and Recreation Peter Melore. “This is a tremendous and well-deserved honor; through his hard work and dedication to the student athletes in Connetquot, he has made the entire community proud. Coach Scichilone has exemplified what a coach should be and mentored so many student athletes along the way, and has set a shining example for his athletes to emulate and their parents to appreciate.”
