Graduate Athletes Earn All-American Honors

The Women’s Game of U.S. Lacrosse recently named three former student-athletes from the Farmingdale High School Class of 2012, Kaitlin Gaghan, Kimberly Kolodny and Colleen Reynolds, as High School All-Americans.

“We are extremely proud of Kaitlin, Kimberly and Colleen for achieving this outstanding and notable recognition of being named High School All-Americans,” said John Lorentz, Farmingdale School District superintendent. “Their diligent work ethic and dedication in the classroom and on the lacrosse field made them well-deserving candidates of this honor.”

Kolodny and Reynolds were selected as First Team U.S. Lacrosse All-Americans for their exceptional skills and sportsmanship. They currently attend Rutgers and Fairfield, respectively. Gaghan earned herself a U.S. Lacrosse Academic All-American award for her outstanding achievements in both her academics and lacrosse and now attends Quinnipiac.

“Kim, Kaitlin and Colleen were team captains and emotional leaders who left an indelible mark on the high school lacrosse program,” said Shari Campbell, Farmingdale High School head girls’ lacrosse coach. “They are well-deserving of being recognized as High School All-Americans.”

News

At a recent meeting of the Farmingdale Board of Education, school district superintendent John Lorentz discussed New York State’s proposal to invest $2 billion into districts statewide

through the Smart Schools Bond Act.

 

If approved by voters in the upcoming general elections, the act would allow the state to borrow $2 billion in the form of a capital bond to provide students with access to classroom

technology and high-speed internet connectivity, with the goal of equalizing opportunities for children to learn, adding classroom space, expanding pre-kindergarten programs, replacing classroom trailers with permanent instructional space and installing high-tech security features in schools. 

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.

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.
