Picking up right where they left off after last year’s undefeated season, East Islip High School’s kickline team started off 2011-2012 with another great win. The team competed at the Long Island Kickline Association’s first competition of the season on Dec. 18, and came out on top. After winning their Pom Division, the team enjoyed a celebration and the congratulations of their coach, Denise Naccarato, and the many spectators attending the event.
“This year’s team is made up of 25 girls and 19 of them are new to the team, so I anticipated a very rough start,” said Naccarato. “This is the perfect example of how hard work and dedication pay off. I am so proud of them and am looking forward to a great season. Win or lose, they should be proud of how they have come together as a team. I couldn’t ask for a better group of girls to represent East Islip this year as we compete against other Long Island schools.”
The East Islip kickline team’s next competition will be held on Jan. 15, 2012 at Uniondale High School, where they will be entering both the Pom and Kick Divisions.
