9738-1T 4/29

04/29/10 12:00am

In a reference to his modest receiving statistics last season, Mike Owen took a realistic approach to his view of the National Football League draft. “I’m at the bottom of the barrel,” Owen was quoted as saying by NFLDraftScout.com before the draft.

And yet, even though Owen wasn’t drafted last week, the Syracuse University senior tight end may have felt as if he was on top of the world when he received a phone call from the New York Jets.

The Jets have invited the former Riverhead High School football star to try out for the team. Owen received the invitation about 45 minutes after the conclusion of the NFL draft on Saturday.

First, one of Owen’s agents, Craig Redd, called to say that the Jets wanted him. Owen, who watched the televised draft along with his parents, Don and Pam, at his apartment in Syracuse, was speechless. “I couldn’t even say anything,” Owen said in a phone interview. “I was bouncing off the walls. I was running all over the place. I broke down in tears. It was the greatest moment in my life.”

Don Owen said his son “looked elated. I can tell you, between me and my wife, some tears broke out.”

Several teams — including the Jets, Minnesota Vikings, Kansas City Chiefs, Houston Texans and Miami Dolphins — had expressed an interest in Owen, contacting him before the draft.

Mike Owen said he prayed for the Jets to select him during the draft. “It’s close to home,” he said. “It’s like the perfect situation for me.”

Don Owen said that if his son was going to be drafted, it was going to be in Rounds 5, 6 or 7.

“From a parent’s standpoint, it was very draining and nerve-wracking,” the father said after the ordeal was over. He said that when the Vikings used one of their seventh-round picks to select Penn State tight end Mickey Shuler, he figured his son wouldn’t be drafted.

But it wasn’t long before the Jets called.

“At that time we were all excited and happy. There was a lot of relief,” Don Owen said. “It was just a big joy. I couldn’t be any more proud of him. He’s done everything he’s been asked since he started playing football.”

Mike Owen is expected to arrive at the Jets’ training complex in Florham Park, N.J., on Thursday for a three-day tryout. If the Jets like what they see, they could offer Owen a contract, but that wouldn’t necessarily mean he will make the team after preseason training camp opens this summer.

“It’s good to get drafted, to have your name called, but it wasn’t a big deal to me because I just wanted a shot,” Owen said. “I want one shot to prove that I belong here.”

Last season Owen caught 12 passes for 93 yards and a touchdown for Syracuse. Over the course of his career with the Orange, he made 39 catches for 319 yards and three touchdowns.

Scouts from the Jets and several other NFL teams got to see Owen work out, along with Syracuse quarterbacks Greg Paulus and Cameron Bantley, during a pro day in the Carrier Dome in early March.

Scouts like Owen’s size (6 foot 4, 251 pounds) and soft hands, but want to see better blocking skills from him, according to NFLDraftScout.com, which projected Owen to be an undrafted free agent.

“Mike’s always optimistic,” the Riverhead High School football coach, Leif Shay, said. “He has a big belief in his ability, and he truly believes he can make it to the next level.”

Owen played several positions for Syracuse. He arrived at the school as a linebacker. A year later he was moved to defensive end, and then he spent his last three seasons playing tight end.

Owen, who will graduate next month with a degree in child and family studies, has also expressed an interest in coaching. But playing in the NFL could be at the top of his priority list right now. He said he had told his parents ever since he was in kindergarten that he wanted to play in the NFL.

Shay said he saw early on that Owen wasn’t a typical high school player. “As a freshman in high school, you could just see that he was a cut above the average kid,” the coach said. “He’s got all those intangibles. Kids like that are very rare.”

Rarer yet are the ones that make it into the NFL.

Don Owen said, “If he’s the Mike Owen that I know … he’s not going to let the Jets down.”

The differences are so slight that it may be impossible to say who is a better tennis player, Desi Tetrault or Anthony Losquadro. It can be close when they play each other in practice. That means tiebreakers, deuce points, three sets. Who is the better player, you ask? Well, that depends on the day or the direction the wind happens to be blowing.

“Flip a coin,” said Losquadro.

No wonder the two seniors on the Southold/Greenport high school boys tennis team have been trading the first and second singles positions back and forth.

Recalling a trip the two took to Boston last summer, Tetrault said they played on a number of different courts, but each time Losquadro won. “I couldn’t beat him, and then there are other times when he can’t beat me,” Tetrault said. “We both kind of learn from each other.”

No wonder a bemused look crossed Coach Andrew Sadowski’s face when he was asked before Tuesday’s match against Riverhead who would play first singles for the Clippers. Tetrault, the winner of the most recent challenge match between the two, was the one.

Both were winners, though, as Southold/Greenport scored a 6-1 win at Riverhead High School, the same result as when the two teams played on April 8.

Tetrault was put to the test by Riverhead’s plucky freshman, Seth Conrad. In the first set, Tetrault overcame a 3-1 deficit, and then he bounced back after being behind, 5-4, in the second set for a 7-5, 7-5 triumph. He outpointed his younger opponent, 75-67, in a tight match that featured some long, exciting rallies. It ended somewhat anticlimactically, on a double fault, Conrad’s second of the match.

Losquadro, meanwhile, had an easier time of it in his 6-3, 6-0 defeat of Devon Brewer.

Interestingly, Tetrault and Losquadro share something else in common. This season represents a tremendous jump forward for both of them.

For the past two years Tetrault was a doubles player, more out of team need than anything else. He partnered with Matt Marinace last season.

Losquadro was a second singles player for the junior varsity team last year, the first time he had ever picked up a tennis racket.

With 14 seniors on Southold/Greenport’s 15-player roster (sophomore Josh Robinson is the only non-senior), the competition for places in the lineup is tight. That helps explain why the Clippers have been doing so well, with a record of 7-2, both overall and in Suffolk County League VIII. Their win on Tuesday was their sixth in a row.

“It’s a nice run,” said Sadowski, whose team is 15-6 over the past two years. “We’re playing real nice tennis.”

Losquadro said: “We know we can beat other teams, even if they’re really good like William Floyd and Mattituck. We can compete against them. We certainly have a chance. You can’t count us out anymore.”

Don’t discount the first doubles team of K. J. Metz and Kevin Parma, who retained their perfect record on Tuesday with their ninth win from nine matches. The two Clippers beat Efe Erol and Andrew Plattner, 6-1, 6-0.

In the only three-set match of the day, Southold/Greenport received a 2-6, 6-3, 6-1 victory by Zach Sacher in fourth singles. He defeated John Rios.

Robinson, who played first singles for the JV team last year, was a 6-1, 6-1 winner over Victor Camacho.

Southold/Greenport’s No. 2 doubles team of Jack O’Donnell and Tim Winters scored a 6-2, 6-2 defeat of Stephen Loquet and Leslie Lawerence.

The only win for Riverhead (1-9, 1-8) came in third doubles. Patrick Carroll and Geoff Wells teamed up for 6-3, 7-6 (7-2) victory over Dan Murphy and Elliot Shine.

Who will play first singles for the Clippers in their next game on Thursday against William Floyd? That’s a question for another day, and one that may not be particularly important.

“I think the most important part is not to worry about what position you play, as long as you get the W and get the win,” Losquadro said. “That’s what the whole team is looking for.”

Pat Stepnoski of Bishop McGann-Mercy made good contact on this pitch.

The penalty assessed for losing a ball in the lights Friday night at Jean W. Cochran Park in Peconic? Getting hit by a pitch the next time at bat.

Nowhere in the baseball rule book does it mention this as being an infraction, nor is there an official punishment for such an error. It just happened to work out that way for both right fielders, Bishop McGann-Mercy’s Tom Tenaglia and Southold’s Luke Hokanson, in the First Settlers’ 7-5 win over the Monarchs.

Tenaglia was the first one to lose a fly ball in the lights. With the bases loaded in the bottom of the first inning, Southold’s John Dunne launched a 1-0 fastball from Al Yabakowski to deep right field. Tenaglia settled under it, but as he looked up, the ball was nowhere to be seen. That is, until it glanced off his glove, hit him in the face and rolled away. By the time center fielder Pat Stepnoski retrieved it, Dunne had a three-run triple to put the First Settlers up, 4-0.

“He was definitely right under it,” Monarchs Coach Ed Meier said of Tenaglia. “He has the bump to prove it. It was a lot of contact with him and the baseball today.”

Yabakowski had a hard time finding the plate in the first inning as he issued two walks and gave up three hits for the Monarchs (5-3 overall, 3-3 in Suffolk County League VIII). He gave up two more runs in the first inning as the First Settlers sent 10 batters to the plate and took a 6-1 lead.

Yabakowski’s counterpart on the mound, Shaun Hansen, had his own troubles through the first two innings for Southold (4-5, 4-3). “It was definitely discouraging,” Hansen said. “Definitely some ugly baseball.”

Said Meier: “That was kind of like a circus there. Then we started to play some real baseball and it was fun.”

Hansen started the second inning by striking out two of the first three batters he faced. Just as quickly as it seemed he had regained his control after walking three batters in the first inning, Hansen lost it again. He walked a batter, gave up a single and then beaned Tenaglia. The first two pitches of the at-bat were high and inside.

With the bases loaded, Monarchs third baseman Chris Sachalk hit a fly ball to right field. Hokanson started to his left, then reversed field, but never found the ball. It rolled to the fence for a three-run double.

“I’m not going to give him the benefit of the doubt on that,” said Southold Coach Mike Carver, whose team suffered a 6-3 loss to the Pierson/Bridgehampton Whalers on Tuesday. “He should have caught that ball.”

Hansen ended the inning with another strikeout, but Southold’s lead had been cut to 6-5. That was one of 13 strikeouts Hansen notched on the evening. He also walked seven batters, five of them in the first two innings, during which he threw 71 of his 134 pitches. Nearly half of them were balls.

“You could say it’s a little bit sore,” Hansen said of his right arm. “I’m definitely going to feel it tomorrow morning.”

After his adventures in right field, Hokanson led off the second inning for Southold. On a 2-2 count, a curveball from Yabakowski hit Hokanson under the left eye. He crumpled to the ground. He managed to leave the field under his own power. After a brief pit stop in the dugout for some ice, Hokanson left the park with an ice pack over his mouth to go to the hospital as a precautionary measure.

“Hopefully there won’t be any fractures,” Carver said.

Once the game resumed, Yabakowski settled down, going six innings and allowing just one more run. Unfortunately for him, Hansen’s wildness had also disappeared. The Monarchs managed only one hit off him in the last five innings. Hansen struck out the side in the fourth and sixth innings.

“He pitched well,” Carver said. “He got stronger as he went on.”

The Monarchs threatened briefly in the fifth inning, getting men on first and second base with one out. But Hansen got Ian Traynor to ground into an inning-ending double play. Another double play in the seventh ended any hopes the Monarchs had of a comeback.

“That was a good win,” Carver said. “That’s going to be a momentum-builder right there.”

Jamesport resident and avid boater Joan Cear takes a moment to relax back on the North Fork after appearing on ‘The Today Show’ last Monday to talk about her work as president of the New York Women in Communications Foundation.

Sitting with Matt Lauer, Ann Curry, Al Roker and Natalie Morales outside Studio 1A in Rockefeller Center last Monday, Jamesport resident Joan Cear found herself getting a little nervous before her first interview on “The Today Show.”

“Normally, it’s my job to get my clients interviews,” said the 51-year-old public relations professional. “But the tables were turned on me. You get the butterflies when you’re in that position.”

Ms. Cear is managing director and head of consumer practice at G.S. Schwartz and Co., a New York City-based public relations agency. She is also president of the New York Women in Communications Foundation, a networking organization founded in 1929 for communications professionals in the metropolitan area.

Ms. Cear was interviewed on “The Today Show” along with the organization’s 19 scholarship winners — high school and college students pursuing careers in communication — before heading to the Waldorf Astoria for the organization’s Matrix Awards, where famous women such as rocker Sheryl Crow, “Saturday Night Live” alumna Tina Fey and Google vice president Marissa Mayer were honored.

This year marked the 40th anniversary of the Matrix Awards, an event that has attracted professionals in the communications and entertainment industries of all stripes. This year’s scholarship recipients also got to meet high-profile journalists Oprah Winfrey, Katie Couric and Lesley Stahl at the sold-out event.

“It’s always our biggest night of the year,” said Ms. Cear, a 1980 graduate of SUNY/Oswego and former broadcast journalist.

Though she splits her time between New York City and the North Fork, Ms. Cear has called Jamesport home since 1991. A native of St. James, she has strong family ties to the area. Her grandmother, Agnes Reinhart, owned a liquor store in Peconic, and her grandfather, Howard Reinhart, trucked produce from local farms across the East Coast. She and her husband, James, are avid boaters and enjoy living near the water and beaches.

After her hectic week rubbing shoulders with celebrities, Ms. Cear chatted with a Suffolk Times reporter about her career and volunteer work.

Q: How does one qualify for a scholarship from the New York Women in Communications Foundation?

A: You have to live in New York, Connecticut, New Jersey or Pennsylvania or be attending a school in one of New York City’s five boroughs. The organization is not limited to women, but obviously by its name tends to attract women. High school seniors and those already in college apply, but other candidates are older and in the midst of a career change. And those careers run the gamut of the communications field, from journalism and public relations to graphic design and marketing.

Q: So you started out as a journalist?

A: I took a job in radio for an NPR station in Hutchinson, Kansas, for a year and a half after college. It was interesting to live in the middle of Kansas for a while. There was a large Mennonite population, and wheat was integral to the culture as a whole.

My first love is news, and I worked for an all-news radio station in Dallas, Texas, where 24-hour news was being broadcast well before CNN and the Internet. But, like they do now, people wanted to know what was going on, all the time.

Q: Are traditional media — print, radio and television — becoming dinosaur-land?

A:Not in the sense that traditional media have, for the most part, learned how to incorporate digital media — they’ve had to. Radio and television stations have websites. I get tweets from my old radio station, letting me know what’s up.

Q: How do you advise the journalist of today to adjust to the digital age?

A:The journalist of today has to be very versatile and very savvy with technology. They need to be able to shoot video and edit video. They need to be able to write headlines with key words that will link up to other sites on the Web.

David Pogue of The New York Times is a good example of someone who’s adjusted. He’s not trained in broadcast, but he went from technology reporter for the paper to doing segments on “CBS Sunday Morning” and blogging. So the next crop of journalists not only have to be smart people who know how to gather information, they have to be able to apply what they’ve learned across the range of technology. It’s very much hands-on.

Q: When did you know you wanted to go into communications?

A: When I heard Alison Steele, the Night Bird, on WNEW. She was one of the first female rock-‘n’-roll DJs in the city.

Q: So the relatively few females in the field when you were younger didn’t discourage you?

A: No, because I had the most wonderful parents in the world. They never set any limits on what I could do. When I learned how to drive, my father encouraged me to change the oil and tires and belts. My brothers cooked and cleaned. We were not aware of any boy’s job or girl’s job. And I never said to myself, “Oh, I can’t do that because that’s a boy’s job.” I think every child should be raised that way.

Q: As a successful professional in communications, do you often find yourself hobnobbing with American cultural icons as you did last Monday?

A: It’s always nice to have the opportunity to meet the icons. Throughout my career there have been many brushes with fame. Are the icons cool to meet? Yes. But so are my neighbors in Jamesport. I think the key to working in this business is being true to yourself and finding what really makes you happy. My passion is the volunteer work I do for the foundation. I love watching former scholarship winners act like mother hens for the new winners. The money helps, but the more important thing is the networking. At the Matrix, people like Tina Fey and Oprah might have spoken only for about 30 seconds, but they all referred to the future of these young people, and that really helps.

Sara Perkins handled some relief duty for Mattituck against Mount Sinai.

As the Mount Sinai Mustangs began hitting their stride at the plate, scoring 17 runs in consecutive games last week, their cleanup hitter, Sarah Shine, dipped into a funk.

Overanxious at the plate, Shine started grounding out on balls she could have been driving. So, before Tuesday’s game at home against Mattituck, Mount Sinai Coach Allison Maire slid Shine down a spot in the order.

The result was a spectacular afternoon for Shine, one of only three seniors for Mount Sinai. Shine batted 3 for 4 with five runs batted in and two doubles in an 11-1 Mount Sinai win.

“She showed me today,” said Maire, who notched her 99th career coaching victory. “I’ll take it. Four or five spot, it doesn’t matter.”

The Mustangs won their fifth straight game, feasting on League VIII in the crossover part of the schedule. Over their five-game win streak, the Mustangs (6-5 overall, 6-4 League VII) have outscored their competition, 58-4, and haven’t given more than one run in any game.

For a team accustomed to overpowering much of its competition, the 2010 season hasn’t been quite as easy. The Mustangs came into the season with a brand new roster from a year ago, a team filled with young players new to the varsity. They opened the season with three straight losses, two of which were league games. They lost only once in league in the previous two years combined.

While the Mustangs expected to take some lumps at the beginning of the season, they’re now reaping the benefits of their hard work. Maire said the players coming together off the field has helped translate into better play on it.

“Once they started doing the team thing, they went to a team dinner and did things together, they’re really starting to pick it up,” she said.

Eighth grader Holly Drasser earned the win against the Tuckers by pitching a complete game, giving up one run on six hits. She struck out 11 without a walk.

It was the second varsity win for the lefty Drasser. Her first came April 21 in a five-inning no-hitter against Southold/Greenport.

“She throws a lot of different pitches and they are getting stronger as she keeps going,” Maire said.

Drasser has rotated pitching duties with freshman Michelle Piergiorgi. Both girls have different styles of pitching, Maire said.

“They’re different, but they both know how to throw it and get it done,” Maire said. “Now that the defense behind them is getting more solid it’s a lot easier.”

The Mustangs played an error-free game against the Tuckers. Mattituck, meanwhile, made a few miscues in the field that allowed the Mustangs to blow the game open. Danielle Grim started for the Tuckers (2-9, 1-8) and pitched into the third inning before Sara Perkins came in to pitch the rest of the way.

The Mustangs struck for three runs in the first inning, capped by a two-run double to left-center by Shine. The Mustangs scored six runs in the third inning, aided by a pair of Mattituck errors.

Shine singled home the first run to make it 4-1 Mount Sinai. Lindsay Putkowski followed with runners on the corners. She grounded back to Grim, who threw for the out at first. Gianna Gulli raced home from third on the throw to score Mount Sinai’s fifth run. The ball bounced away from the catcher as Shine reached third base. She scampered home, but the catcher recovered in time to tag her out.

Mount Sinai scored two more runs on bases-loaded walks. Lilly McCullough was the top hitter for Mattituck. She was 3 for 3 in the leadoff spot.

Jackie Hinrichs drove in the Tuckers’ lone run in the second inning with a double to right field.

Sophomore Jordan Fiore had a big day at the plate for Mount Sinai, going 2 for 4 with an RBI and three runs. She also showed off her arm behind the plate, gunning down two runners at second on steals. “She’s very, very consistent,” Maire said.

Fiore can play nearly anywhere on the diamond, including pitcher. Her prime position, though, remains catcher. “She literally does it all,” Maire said.

Fiore had big shoes to fill at catcher after Jill Donnelly graduated. Donnelly was a four-time all-county catcher who now plays at Towson (Md.).

“Since I’ve started coaching, this is my seventh year, I’ve had one good catcher after another,” Maire said.

Tomorrow the Mustangs will host Hampton Bays, the only team in League VII they’ve yet to face. From there they’ll play each team in the league one more time.

“I think some of the teams will be surprised when they see us again,” Maire said. “That’s the goal anyway.”

Orient residents fighting the Suffolk County Water Authority’s three-mile extension of 12-inch mains east across the causeway suffered a legal setback Wednesday when a state Supreme Court justice ruled that a full environmental review is not required before work can begin.

Justice Ralph F. Costello found that state environmental law does not mandate a detailed review because each of the 24 houses in the Browns Hill community where the authority would be providing service was previously fitted with SWCA-provided water filters. He handed down the ruling from the bench in Riverhead after hearing arguments from both sides.

The decision came only days after settlement talks over the weekend failed when Orient residents rejected a proposal to allow the authority to add the new mains with restrictions on future hookups.

“The proposed settlement was totally unacceptable,” said MaryAnn Liberatore of Orient. “A complete waste of time for all concerned, particularly the majority of Orient residents who have moved to the position of ‘hell, no!’ with respect to SCWA and its proposed pipeline.”

The town was a defendant in the residents’ suit, based on the Town Trustees’ decision to grant the water authority an administrative permit, which did not require a detailed environmental review, for permission to drill at an angle beneath Dam Pond and install a 600-foot section of the main there without disturbing wetlands.

“We’re considering our options,” said Ms. Liberatore. “We’ll consult with our neighbors, counsel and elected officials, and make our decisions after thoughtful planning.”

In a partial reversal, the town recently told the authority that Dam Pond is not the only section of the pipeline’s route to fall under the Trustees’ jurisdiction and that additional permits are required. That position does not affect the Dam Pond permit.

“We would welcome any future application from SCWA, after public consensus for water service is established,” said Supervisor Scott Russell. “The court case was about the permitting process. That is just one issue here and it is the first issue. Down the road, I am sure we will be dealing with the other, larger issues of the comprehensive plan and the role and authority of towns in their own decision-making versus the power and authority of these so-called public authorities.”

“The court’s decision upheld the Trustees’ issuance of an administrative permit for directional drilling under Dam Pond, which is but a portion of the installation of this water main,” said town attorney Martin Finnegan. “The town has placed the SCWA on notice that no construction is to commence on the water main extension until the requisite approvals are obtained for the entire project.”

The town has long maintained that the authority cannot proceed unless the Town Board votes to change to the town’s public water service map. The Town Board recently voted unanimously, 6-0, against revising the map to accommodate the extension of mains from East Marion into Orient.

The authority argues that Browns Hills already lies within its service area and that further Town Board approval is not needed.

“There are issues beyond what happened in court this week,” the supervisor added.

Bob DeLuca, president of the Group for the East End, an environmental advocacy organization, said water main opponents need to shift the fight in a new direction and challenge the stimulus funding that would cover half of the project’s $3.8 million cost. Originating in Washington, that funding was funneled through the state.

“The public has carried this as far as they can,” Mr. De Luca said. “The stimulus money should be pulled until the environmental implications can be explored.”

SCWA CEO Stephen Jones doesn’t agree.

“The court’s ruling confirms that the authority acted in accordance with state law,” he said. “It is the authority’s purpose and mission to bring clean, safe drinking water to the residents of Suffolk County,” he added. “The authority will continue this in accordance with the requirements of state law.”
