The district is proud to announce that varsity basketball coach Joe Lores has been selected to be inducted into the New York State Basketball Hall of Fame. This honor is a testament to the many years of hard work, service and dedication that Lores has put towards the district’s basketball program, students and community. 
Lores has had a successful 35-year career as coach at the high school, where he led the program to five conference championships, three Section/Nassau County Championships and two Long Island Championships. With that, his coaching career also includes a total of 222 victories, which is the most wins of any coach in the school’s history.

In addition, Lores has led numerous individual New York State Scholar Athletes, and Scholar Athlete Teams. He also has a strong standing in the community, where his teams have participated in multiple fundraisers for organizations such as Hoops for Heart, Jimmy V. Foundation and Toys for Tots. He continues to raise funds and award the Lorayne & Manuel Lores Memorial Scholarship, Tom Wilkinson Memorial Scholarship and Jack D. Butler Scholarship for district student-athletes.

Lores is the ninth coach from Nassau County to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. The ceremony will take place in Glens falls, New York, in March 2019.
