Glen Cove High School athletes and Landing School physical education teacher Karen Serani taught third-grade students in Joanne Flower’s class the basics of lacrosse during a recent physical education class.
During the visit, high school student-athletes Michelle Melfi, Sean Morrisey and Lindsey Payton offered tips on how to hold a lacrosse stick and how to cradle the ball. They also spoke to students about peer pressure, emphasized the importance of taking part in extracurricular activities, and reminded them to always look out for their own best interests.
In addition to promoting the sport of lacrosse, the high school athletes encouraged the elementary students to participate in the Glen Cove Jr.
