Intel Science Talent Search competitors

January 17th 2007 it was announced that James Devlin and Kaitlin Duncan were named as 2 of the 300 semifinalists of the Intel STS. There were a record 1,705 entrants nationwide. January 31st Kaitlin Duncan was named a finalist in the Intel STS. She is one of 40 finalists and competed against the other finalists for a $100,000 scholarship in Washington DC in March.


The 2005-2006 school year's budget was stripped to a minimum operating budget because of 2 failed community budget votes. This forced the school district onto an austerity budget. For the first time in Long Island history, all athletics were cut entirely from the district. A group of parents formed the Plainedge Parents Athletic Club and started SOS (Save our Sports) and raised over $500,000 to bring back every, single sports team. The Plainedge High School Red Devils then proceeded to win the Nassau Division III Football Championship. Their next game, Plainedge lost to Huntington High School in the Division III Long Island Championship. The Huntington Blue Devils then proceeded to give a standing ovation to the Red Devils as they walked off the field (As seen in the December 5 2005 issue of Sports Illustrated Magazine). Linebacker, Kurt Steubing, won the Top Linebacker Award for the Island, John Scheffer won the top QB Award for the Island and Coach Rob Shaver won Nassau Coach of the Year. All three made the All-Long Island Team.
