The Dalers have a string of games against highly ranked opponents that starts with nationally ranked Garden City at home on May 1, followed by Port Washington on May 3 and Manhasset on May 7.

The JV Lady Dalers are also off to a good start and currently 6-2. The JV Lady Dalers have a small roster of 14 hardworking and very dedicated lacrosse players.

Howitt Middlle School seventh and eighth grade girls combined team has started their preseason training. The Howitt girls had their first game on April 30 against Island Trees at home.

The eighth-grade PAL team has continued to improve this season. The girls recently faced some tough competition. The eighth-grade Lady Dalers came up short in a hard fought rainy game against Long Beach. The loss did not dampen the team’s spirit and they look forward to their next game against East Meadow.

The sixth-grade PAL girls are off to a rough and challenging schedule. The girls are coming together as a team and hope to improve with a win in their next game against Garden City.

The fifth-grade PAL Green had an impressive win over Huntington 10-5 on April 21.

The fourth-grade PAL White team has started their season with back-to-back wins over Dix Hills and Long Beach. Between victories, the fourth-grade team spent April 9 supporting the varsity Lady Dalers during their victory over Penfield. The girls got to warm up and interact with the Lady Dalers on the sidelines.

Third-grade PAL is off to an amazing first season coached by Allissa Calandrino. The girls played their first PAL game against Garden City and came up a little short, 7-5. Tremendous effort by all and their next game will be against Bayville.

The Farmingdale High School Lady Dalers will host the Long Island Challenge on May 5. Come out and support the best teams on Long Island as they compete at Allen Park. First game starts at 2:30 p.m. with the Lady Dalers, concluding this event at 8:30 p.m. against East Port South Manor.

Holidays Increase Daily Congestion 

While parking around LIRR train stations is typically a challenge, even on a regular work day, the holidays create more of a struggle for commuters in search of parking spots. LIRR spokesman Salvatore Arena said that ridership between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day increases by at least 10 percent; last year it was by 12 percent. Though the MTA is adding more trains to the schedule, that doesn’t ease the parking situation, which is operated not by the LIRR, but by individual municipalities in each town. 

 

“Every station is different,” Arena said. “A good part of our parking is in the hands of the locality. They set the rules essentially.”

At a special “wrap up “ meeting for the 2014 Marcum Workplace Challenge, Greater Long Island Running Club Vice President and Event Director Mindy Davidson of Farmingdale, presented a special plaque to Winsome Foulkes, team captain of the Farmingdale-based Telephonics Corporation.  Winsome is retiring from Telephonics after a long and successful career and has led the Telephonics Corporation in the Marcum Workplace Challenge since its inception.  

There is simply no better way for runners and their families to celebrate the Holiday Season than by being part of the fun at the Carter, DeLuca, Farrell & Schmidt Holiday 5 Kilometer Run, and on Saturday morning, Dec. 20, the Run will be celebrating its 27th anniversary edition at the John F. Kennedy Middle School in Bethpage. The run will start at 9:30 a.m. on Broadway in Bethpage.
