Molloy in the News

The Molloy College rugby team played a big part in the day's rubbish roundup. The team heaved at least 500 pounds of waterway waste into a large 27-foot Carolina Skiff. The crew of 14 scooped Styrofoam out of the bay but found most of their six-bag load on Bay Colony, where their find included a Pokemon Sun video game cartridge, the vintage Pepsi bottle and an oar.
"As someone who lives on the bay, it was really eye-opening to see the amount of debris that's in the water, said Greg Lawrence, 21, of Rockaway. "I'm proud of me and my team members for bringing in as much as we did," said Lawrence, who vowed to hang the oar in the Molloy Rugby House in East Rockaway.
