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.”

Village officials have teamed up with James Faith Entertainment—founders of the Great South Bay Music Festival in Patchogue—to organize Farmingdale’s first ever two-day music festival, this September 13 and 14. 

 

“Farmingdale is another town that is starting to move forward,” festival producer Jim Faith told the Farmingdale Observer, last May. “[The inaugural festival] will be small, but we’ll start growing it... music festival always take a few years to catch on.” 

 

Faith said that when he first started the Great South Bay Music Festival, back in 2007, it too started small, growing little by little each year. For its inaugural year, Faith booked folk musician Richie

Havens to headline the event. Now, more than eight years later, the festival has featured numerous big name musicians, including: the Doobie Brothers, WAR, Billy Squier, Taking Back Sunday, moe., and Blues legend B.B. King, to name a few. 

The Farmingdale Baseball League recently capped off its fourth annual 9/11 baseball tournament with a series of championship games, to ultimately determine which Long Island town reigns supreme. On Aug. 16, teams from 8U to 14U fought tooth and nail for the ultimate prize.

 

One of the most exciting games was the 12U championship between the Long Island Devils and hometown Farmingdale Greendogs. Farmingdale started off the tournament path by going 6-0 in group play as the Devils went 3-3. In the playoff portion of the tournament, the Greendogs shellacked the Ozone Howard Renegades 11-3, on Aug. 14, while the Devils staved off East Meadow from getting on the scoreboard, beating them 5-0.
