Farmingdale Names Two Valedictorians In The Class of 2014

The Farmingdale School District is proud to announce that Leah Ragno and Elijah Mas have been named Farmingdale High School’s Class of 2014 Valedictorians. Leah and Elijah earned a grade point average higher than 105 during their four-year academic careers at Farmingdale High School.

“Leah is an excellent student, extremely self-motivated and is a tremendous role model for our entire student body,” said Glen Zakian, Farmingdale High School Principal. “Not only has she devoted her time to academics, but has been an outstanding presence in our school community and in the greater Farmingdale community.”

Leah was a vital member of the school’s Science Olympiad Team, Environthon program and the Farmingdale High School’s Marching Band. In addition, she was inducted into the National Honor Society and the French Honor Society.  Leah interned at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Hospital in New York City for four years where she served as a patient representative and assisted in patient escort services.  She also volunteered for the Maria Regina Innkeepers and Mary Brennan Inn Soup Kitchen organizations. Leah will attend the University of Pennsylvania in the fall to pursue a career in medicine.

“Elijah is a true scholar, active leader and a self-motivator.  He continues to impress me with his devotion to learn and his drive to succeed,” said Lisa A. Jensen, Farmingdale High School Guidance Counselor. “Elijah’s accomplishments have spoken for themselves as he has challenged himself in the most rigorous classes our school has to offer.”

Elijah is an Advanced Placement Scholar and will receive an Advanced Regents Diploma with a Mastery in Mathematics and Science upon graduation. Outside the classroom, Elijah was president of Farmingdale High School’s National Honor Society Chapter and was captain of the school’s Environmental Competition Team. He is also a member of the school’s Science Olympiad and Mathletes teams, and is actively involved in martial arts and music in the community. Elijah will attend Yale University in the fall to study astrophysics.

Over the weekend, thousands of Long Island residents flocked to the Village of Farmingdale for its 26th annual Columbus Day Weekend Fair and Fireman’s carnival. Running from Oct. 9

to 13, the five-day affair featured live music from Farmingdale’s own Electric Dudes and Long Island party band Superbad, a Fire Department barbecue, food vendors, a street fair, fireworks, carnival rides, games for kids of all ages and, of course, the Columbus Day parade. 

If the Farmingdale Rams are going to get over the top and capture the Skyline Conference for men’s soccer in 2014, it will take some more aggressive play. That’s according to team captain and defensive player Vincent Danetti. 

 

“We don’t have a lot of big guys on our team,” Danetti said. “We need to play aggressive.”

The 2014 Reilly Cup finals featured the two most successful OTHG teams over the last 9 years. Sal’s Place and Singleton’s have had 11 finals appearances and 7 championships between them during this period of time. They split 2 games during the regular season and Singleton’s became the winner’s bracket representative in the 2014 Cup by beating Sal’s deep in the tournament.

 

Sal’s took the first game 14-7. The game was close until the 8th inning when Sal’s broke it open with some timely hits and taking advantage of a Singleton’s miscue or two.  Sal’s held

Singleton’s to 7 runs with outstanding all-around defense, which was particularly impressive given that some of their significant contributors were visibly fighting through late-season injuries.
