Glen Cove’s boys varsity basketball team captured their second conference title in four years when they beat Floral Park 69-63.

Ralik Jackson led the way in points, scoring 19 for the team. He was followed by Corey Dinkins with 16. 

“What a difference a year makes,” varsity coach Peter Falen said. “Last year the boys were 2-15 overall, and this year they captivated a worst-to-first finish with a 12-5 record to capture the Nassau County Conference A III title.”
 
Assistant coach Adelki Paulino told the team that if they buy in and put forth an effort night after night, they would be rewarded – and rewarded they were.  Glen Cove will host a first round playoff game against North Shore on Feb. 13 at 6 p.m.
