The Hudson Independent
Our Schools
Interim SH High Athletic Director Looks to Revive Sports Programs
by Tom Pedulla –

*** begin quote ***


Michael Gulino, who be­came the in­terim ath­letic di­rec­tor at Sleepy Hol­low High School on July 1, is think­ing big while ad­mit­ting he has rel­a­tively lit­tle time to re­vive some of the school’s sag­ging sports pro­grams.

Gulino spoke of his de­sire to have “a great ath­letic pro­gram across the board for all kids in all sports.” The cir­cum­stances sur­round­ing his ap­point­ment, though, will make it dif­fi­cult for that to be­come a re­al­ity any time soon.

“That’s my goal,” he said. “Can I do it in one year? I don’t know if I can do it in one year, but we’re def­i­nitely go­ing to work at putting the pieces in place to have a great sys­tem mov­ing for­ward and start to work at build­ing it to where it should be, at the top of Sec­tion 1 ath­let­ics.”

Gulino, 64, em­pha­sized that long-term an­swers will have to come from some­one else. He re­tired in June 2015 and noted that his ap­point­ment is for one year. He suc­ceeds Denise Kier­nan, who re­signed af­ter an undis­tin­guished two-year stint that left cer­tain pro­grams, such as foot­ball, with a long climb back merely to re­gain re­spectabil­ity. Kier­nan re­signed amid wide­spread dis­sat­is­fac­tion with her per­for­mance and that of nu­mer­ous teams.

Christo­pher Bor­sari, su­per­in­ten­dent of schools, ac­knowl­edged the need to do bet­ter when he said in a press re­lease an­nounc­ing the hir­ing of Gulino that the in­terim ath­letic di­rec­tor “will be tasked with re­view­ing our ath­letic pro­gram through an ath­letic study process fo­cused upon im­prov­ing the ath­letic ex­pe­ri­ence of stu­dents.”

Gulino spent most of his ca­reer in the Byram Hills Cen­tral School Dis­trict in Ar­monk. He was a mid­dle school health teacher there for 20 years and the ath­letic di­rec­tor at the high school for an­other 14 years. He grad­u­ated from Man­hat­tan Col­lege and holds Mas­ter’s de­grees from Co­lum­bia Uni­ver­sity Teach­ers Col­lege and Lehman Col­lege.

The Aliann Pompey Invitational in Georgetown, Guyana, named for the country’s four-time track Olympian, recently had its fourth edition. The fan base has continued to grow as has the level of competition. Pompey, an assistant coach at St. John’s University, wanted to bring international competitors to the track meet and also provide exposure for the country’s young talent eager to earn U.S. athletic scholarships.

Although she was greeted with enthusiasm from the Invitational’s inception, Pompey had been concerned whether the track meet would have staying power. “There have been meets in the region that didn’t quite make it past year three,” she said. “The feedback I got from the sponsors and the athletes was really positive. I’m thrilled for year five. We’ve started talking about what we would do differently and how that would look. It’s almost safe to say it’s a fixture now.”

JNEWS: Tucciarone, Joseph [MC1965] had a role in the moon landing


One giant leap
By: LIBN Staff July 19, 2019


  • Their memories are vivid and colorful: This is what they said:

*** begin quote ***

Joseph Tucciarone, founder of National Network of Accountants and former assistant spacecraft test manager at Kennedy Space Center

Like many Americans I watched the first moon landing glued to the television screen. However, unlike many other Americans, the moon landing on July 20, 1969 represented the end of a long journey for me. I graduated from Manhattan College in 1965 and immediately went to work with Grumman Aircraft of Bethpage.

Not long after, I was reassigned to Kennedy Space Center. During my days (there) I witnessed the launch of the Saturn 5 rocket, the first non-manned launch of the lunar module as well as the death of three astronauts during testing at the Cape. The landing on the moon represented the end of a long journey and the beginning of a new era for both me and America. The day was tense and I was very anxious. However, by night time I was beaming with joy and filled with pride and excitement. This was the day we as Americans changed the course of history and I was part of that change. It was exhilarating.

I personally grew from this experience into a proud American and a fulfilled engineer. This was a great moment in history. I believed at that time and until today, that this event was similar to Christopher Columbus landing on the shores of the new world.
