Vision LI Makes Presentation at Village Meeting
The Farmingdale Village Board flew through multiple items on the June 21 agenda, pausing briefly to take stock in the residents' approval and understanding of each one.
St. Kilian's Girls Win Softball Title
The St. Kilian's Girls Softball team became Nassau/Suffolk CYO champions on June 18 by defeating defending champs St. Rocco's 3-1 in the final game of the season. It was a very exciting battle between the top two teams in the division as St. Rocco's jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the first on three consecutive singles. However, St. Kilians ace Isabella Corrao quieted the St. Rocco's bats over the next few innings, recording 14 strikeouts in the process. St. Kilians tied the game in the fourth when Cynthia Kramer led off with a walk and dashed home on base hits by Marianne VanMeter and Christine Pica. With time running out on their season, Lauren Rumpf and Jennifer Jacobs would not give in, and led off the sixth with walks. Once again it was Christine Pica who came through with the big hit, driving in both girls to put St. Kilians ahead for good. Patient at bats, strong pitching and tight defense would rule the day as it did all year long for the young St. Kilians squad. The previous week saw the St. Kilians team defeat a very powerful OLMA team in the semi finals 13-2. Kathryn Roberto smashed a three-run homer in the first inning to set the pace early while Stephanie Ringbauer shut the OLMA offense down over seven innings.
Over the Hill Softball Report
