Lady Dalers Celebrate 2013 State Championship

The Farmingdale High School’s 2012-2013 Girls Lacrosse Team was recently honored by New York State Senators Kemp Hannon and Charles Fuschillo for winning the 2013 New York State Class A Championship. Members of the championship team, including Class of 2013 Alumni, were in attendance to accept their awards from the senators.

 

“The students have worked hard all year and we’re very pleased to see that their hard work has paid off,” said Farmingdale High School Superintendent John Lorentz. “Their diligence and dedication in the classroom and on the field has made them terrific role models within our community.”

 

The Lady Dalers posted a 16-3 record on the way to their State Championship. The team went on to defeat Baldwinsville High School by a score of 8-5 to win the title at SUNY Cortland.

 

“We are extremely proud of our Lady Dalers Lacrosse team and their accomplishments,” said Glen Zakian Farmingdale High School Principal. “It was an honor for them to be included in this ceremony and I know these young ladies will only continue to succeed in the future.”

News

There was a time when people knew what they were eating. Frozen meals, fast food chains and ingredients impossible to pronounce were non-existent. Instead, simple ingredients and meals were all made from scratch.

Joann P. Magri, owner of The Divine Olive, is keeping this way of eating alive. Offering hungry customers with a choice in quality foods and ingredients, Magri encourages customers to make their own meals. With shelves stocked full of 18-year-old vinegars straight from Modena, Italy, to extra virgin olive oils infused with various herbs and flavors, the Divine Olive features a variety of organic and vegan products, all 100 percent natural. It even has handmade spaghetti and fresh bread, which perfectly pairs with all of their other products.

It’s a cute little ‘bug.’ What it represents, however, is anything but cute.

An unusual-looking Volkswagen is toodling around Long Island this month. Painted to resemble the Asian longhorned beetle (ALB), the VW Beetle is part of efforts by the US Department of Agriculture to eliminate the pest, which can destroy 70 percent of an area’s tree canopy, according to the agency. Initially, officials held hope for complete eradication from about 23 square miles of LI designated as infested or at risk by 2016. Instead, this “landcape-altering pest” is spreading.


Sports

It will be difficult to top the exhilaration of being crowned Nassau County Champs, but the 2014 Farmingdale Dalers will begin their defense of the title on Sept. 13 at rival Massapequa—whom they beat to claim the crown.

“The attitude is that we have to prove it again,” said Head Coach Buddy Krumenacker, who has been at the helm since 1993. “But I think we’ll be okay,” he added.

Register now as classes fill up quickly and you don’t want to miss out on the chance to join in trapeze workshops at Eisenhower Park’s I.FLY this fall.

 

“I.FLY was designed to give kids and adults the ability to fulfill their dreams of being in the circus,” says instructor Anthony Rosamilia.  “Flying through the air never gets boring.  At I.FLY, we help people create lifelong memories.”
