Golden Eagles Earn Placement on Wall 

The District and community gathered on July 21 for a ceremony to welcome the sixth group of inductees into the Bethpage Athletic Wall of Fame.

This year’s class included 1978 graduate Fran Brown along with former coaches Samuel Prioleau, Harry Settino, Jr. and Donna Weikman.

Fran Brown was a four-sport athlete and represented the Golden Eagles in field hockey, volleyball, basketball and softball. She was part of many league and divisional championships in volleyball, basketball and softball in addition to being captain and the most valuable player of the county champion field hockey team. She went on to play volleyball at Slippery Rock University. 

Samuel Prioleau was a beloved teacher, mentor and coach in Bethpage for 35 years. He holds one of the highest winning percentages on Long Island as a baseball coach and led the Golden Eagles to a county championship. Under his guidance, the junior varsity football team achieved many undefeated seasons. As a mentor, he encouraged students to fight for what they believed in and made them believe they could accomplish anything.

Harry Settino, Jr., had a positive impact on many student athletes during his 23 years in Bethpage. He was a “jack of all trades” by coaching varsity football, varsity baseball, girls’ varsity track and field and boys’ varsity bowling. He also went on to officiate basketball and baseball in addition to being a Nassau County lifeguard supervisor.

Donna Weikman was a symbol of excellence for the Bethpage girls’ bowling program for 43 years with 400 compiled wins, 21 conference championships and two county championships. She began her career in Bethpage in 1969 as a physical education and health teacher in addition to her role as a coach. Donna coached the field hockey team for 17 years that included five division championships, six conference championships and three county championships. She also led the badminton team for 28 years with a total of 312 wins and 11 conference championships. 

“We are very proud to welcome these four inductees into the Bethpage Athletic Wall of Fame,” said Superintendent of Schools David Schneider. “They are proud Golden Eagles.”
