The wins, accolades and records are just background noise to Andrea Orlando, coach of the Stimson Middle School softball team. Though Orlando has coached her squads of young Wildcats to two consecutive undefeated seasons – and a 40-1 record in the last four years – the coach doesn’t focus on that.

All that matters to Orlando is her players.

Barbara Tripi was one of the Stimson Wildcats power hitters this season, coach Andrea Orlando said.

Drew Nugent was the type of person whose smile could light up a room. As his mother, Johanna said, typically once the 18-year-old lit up that room, he’d do whatever he could to help out those in it.

Nugent’s life, however, was tragically cut short on Aug. 5, 2011 – just weeks after he graduated from Walt Whitman High School.

Yet his lifestyle continues to live on through an initiative founded in his memory.

Johanna Nugent lost her son, Drew, tragically on Aug. 5, 2011, but has worked to keep his memory alive through the pay-it-forward initiative, Deeds 4 Drew.

When the judges’ decision was announced Friday night at the Barclays Center, Greenlawn’s Chris Algieri was unanimously defeated by Amir Khan. Through 12 rounds, the judges ruled, Khan was the better boxer.

Yet, in the eyes of many, Algieri was the better performer. Thanks to an aggressive new style, the 31-year-old former world champion was a victor even in defeat.
