Seaford Wellness Hot Chocolate 5K Run
Sat. Dec. 1st at 9am

The Seaford Wellness Council brought back the once popular Hot Chocolate Run on  Saturday, December 4, 2004.

This popular 5K Run was a favorite for many runners in the  1980s, as the course is fast and flat with only four right turns. Many PRs are set, and runners  enjoy hot chocolate and bagels afterward.

The awards ceremony includes first place overall male and female trophies as well as 1st, 2nd and 3rd place medals for males and females in age groups starting 9 and under, and every 5 year age group up to 75 and over.

From the Heart of a Runner
by Adam Clark 11-12-2006

What I will try to convey to you right now, I don’t believe can entirely be done. You see, the cross country team we’ve become and the immense brotherhood involved is something not everyone has the satisfaction and joy of experiencing or comprehending. It is for the sake of our team that I am writing this, as a sort of “thank you.”

Our foundations lie deep in the team of a few years back, when the personalities of Chris Castellano, Chris Kaminski, and Greg Weber (just to name a few), were alive and well on the team. They set the stage for the miracle to come this year. Coming up just short of the county title for another consecutive year in 05', myself and co-captain Brian Richman were determined to motivate our guys to work until our lungs were bleeding to give our team the well deserved title of County Champions, not only for ourselves but for our predecessors. Their graduation last year only strengthened their spirits on Wantagh Cross Country this year. read more .:

Winter Track Recap 2006
by Maria Pomponio 2-21-2006

The boys and girls winter track teams, led by Coaches Svolos and Apfelbaum, as well as Captains Chris Castellano, Nicole Kalofonos, Keith Kieliszak, Steve Kuron, and Michelle Warburton, finished their 2006 seasons strong.  Although the girl’s team didn’t finish as well as expected and both teams had to deal with bad weather conditions to hinder what could have been more successful practices, dedicated athletes continued to work hard and standout this season.


Cross Country Recap 2005
by Maria Pomponio 1-15-2006

The Wantagh High School boys and girls varsity cross country teams entered the 2005 season with high hopes and great expectations.  Under the leadership of devoted Coach Hedgecock and senior captains Michelle Warburton, Chris Castellano and Jared Koreff, it was predicted that the boys and girls teams would surely be ones to watch.  For the boy’s team, it would take a lot of hard work from the few un-injured members to pull through the difficult meets with runners out to injury.
