Honors for High School Track and Basketball Athletes

 Honors for High School Track and  Basketball Athletes
During the April 25 board of education meeting, three of Bellport High School’s All-County athletes were honored for their outstanding performance during the winter Sports season. Kyler Pizzo, Jarell White and Emily Zahralban received certificates from the board of education and central administration for their individual accomplishments.

Kyler placed third in the Suffolk County championship tournament in the 55-meter hurdles. He ran a time of 7.68, which was two-tenths of a second off the winning time. With his third-place finish, Kyler qualified for the New York State Championship Tournament where he finished in the top 10. He also competed on the 4x200 relay team, which finished fourth in Suffolk County.

Emily finished second in Suffolk County in the 1500-meter race walk with a time of 7:05. Her time and second-place win qualified Emily for the New York State Championships where she finished fourth and earned All-State honors. Emily continued her top performance with a sixth-place finish at the national championships, earning her the title of All-American.   

In basketball, Jarell led his team to a 20-2 record for the second consecutive year, a League III championship title and a final four finish in the Suffolk County Championship tournament. He was the leading scorer in Suffolk County, averaging more than 30 points per game, and was the leading rebounder with more than 15 rebounds per game. Jarell has been named League III player of the year and Suffolk County Player of the Year. He was also named to the All-Long Island Team for the third consecutive year and will be named to the All-New York State Team in the upcoming weeks.

The district congratulates the athletes on these outstanding athletic accomplishments.
