Academy Players Selected to
Newsday's All-Long Island First Team

 

Haley Anderson, 18 Red

The all-around star led the Bulls to their 10th straight League III title and a berth to the county final. Her skill set will be on display at Quinnipiac next year.
— Newsday, 12/11/16

Gabrielle Ayzenberg, 18 Red

An offensive powerhouse who also possesses one of the best serves on Long Island. She had 336 kills this season, finishing with 1,066 for her career. She’ll play at SUNY Geneseo
— Newsday, 12/11/16

Mackenzie Cole, 17 Red

Newsday's Suffolk County Player of the Year

Cole plays with so much control and poise that’s it’s easy to see why she will be playing at Duke, where she has made a verbal commitment. Cole is the leader of Connetquot’s stingy defense, making 247 digs and just eight dig errors. She also had a 92.9 serving percentage.

Sean Hannett, 18 Red

Hannett provided both veteran leadership and skilled play on the outside for Sachem North, and was instrumental in helping the Flaming Arrows complete a fourth straight unbeaten regular season.

Nicole Migliozi, 17 Red

She’s one of Long Island’s best at distributing the ball, racking up 667 assists, and with so many hitting options, Migliozzi makes sure they all stay involved. The junior has already verbally committed to Quinnipiac.

Christopher Shanley, 17 Red

The powerful hitter was instrumental in leading the Bulls to their first county and Long Island Championships. He had 15 kills in the county final and 20 in the Long Island Championship, and was named to the all-state tournament team.

Jamie Smith, 18 Red

Newsday's Long Island Player of the Year

The Iona-bound lefty is the most versatile talent Long Island has to offer. She had 419 assists, 235 kills, 151 digs and 38 blocks this season as the on-floor general for another extremely talented Chiefs team that won its 17th consecutive Nassau AA title. Smith’s value comes in her willingness to do whatever it takes to score or prevent a point. As a setter, she combines great awareness with overwhelming confidence in her hitters. When she’s not setting, she’s arguably the team’s most consistent hitter. Defensively, she’s a stud on the back line and at the net.

Lauren Wilke, 17 Red

The team leader’s versatility helped the Phantoms trump longtime rival Glenn in the Suffolk B Championship game. She’s a two-way setter who is equally as effective at setting and hitting.
