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.”

Farmingdale village officials will be holding a public hearing on Dec. 1, to reexamine school speed zones throughout the village, in order to establish a consistent school speed zone limit. 

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.
