Taylah Hudson Joins the 1,000 Point Club
Glen Cove High School girls varsity basketball player Taylah Hudson continues to make headlines. After becoming the program’s all-time leading scorer back in December she has followed that distinction with a new milestone. On January 25 Taylah scored her 1,000th point against Floral Park.
Taylah’s coach, Greg Mayerhofer recently reached a milestone as well, winning his 400th career game against Valley Stream South High School a week earlier. Congratulations to Taylah and Coach Mayo!
Glen Cove Girls Basketball Coach Gets Win No. 400
Exactly one month after junior Taylah Hudson became Glen Cove High School’s all-time leading scorer in girls basketball, head coach Greg Mayerhofer achieved a personal milestone by winning his 400th career game.
Coach Mayerhofer secured the victory against Valley Stream South High School, 57-34, and the following day, before tipping off against Locust Valley High School, the team presented him with a special game ball, signed by every one of his players. Later in the day, the girls rewarded their coach with his 401st victory.
Although new to Glen Cove this year, Coach “Mayo,” as he is affectionately known by his players, is in his 26th season coaching girls basketball. He begin his career at Maria Regina High School before taking the reins at Floral Park High School from 1984-2008, where he guided the team to four county championships in 1988, 2007, 2008 and 2009 and two Long Island championships in 2008 and 2009. He has also served as an assistant coach in Massapequa and Levittown and runs an extensive summer basketball clinic.
Coach Mayerhofer has quickly become a hero in Glen Cove, as he is building momentum for the girls basketball program along with assistant coach George Ingram. “The student-athletes on his team know that he loves that game as much as he cares about each and every student-athlete in the program,” said Denise Kiernan, the district’s director of physical education, health and athletics. “We are very fortunate to have Coach Mayo here at Glen Cove High School and appreciate his efforts in making this program one of the best in the county.”
Taylah broke the team’s all-time scoring record with her 828th point vs. Floral Park High School back in December.

Welcome to the Glen Cove City School District’s Interscholastic Athletic webpage. Participation in interscholastic athletics is available to all students in grades 7-12.
The Glen Cove School District realizes the importance of a quality interscholastic program in the community as well as its role in the health and physical education of students. Athletics should be a broadening experience in which harmony of mind-body functions is created through striving for physical and mental excellence. This value- building experience should be offered to as many students as possible. A well-coordinated program is vitally important to the morale of the school and our community.
Everyone involved in the delivery of athletics possesses a unique opportunity to teach positive life skills and values. Therefore, this educational experience demands highly qualified coaches. Desire, dedication and self-discipline need to be developed in order to ensure the commitment and personal sacrifices required by athletes. Making such a commitment helps to nurture integrity, pride, loyalty and overall character. The final outcome is a better citizenry carrying these values throughout their life.
It is the nature of athletic competition to strive for victory. However, the number of victories is only one criterion when determining a season’s success. Guiding the team to attain maximum potential is the ultimate goal. To this end, the coaching staff must teach student/athletes to prepare their minds and bodies in order to reach maximum potential, and then to be modest in victory and steadfast in defeat.
Please refer to the links on this page for further information about all of the athletic experiences offered through the Glen Cove Schools.
