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.”

News

Last year, U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer stopped at Moby Drugs in Farmingdale to highlight the launch of a drug take-back program, which was designed to help residents remove addictive prescriptions out of their medicine cabinets. 

 

Yet, despite studies conducted by the Center for Disease Control—which found 70 percent of those addicted to prescription drugs get them from home, family or friends—federal regulations have prevented pharmacies in New York State from hosting the take-back program. 

Lt. Matt Komorowski of Farmingdale was recently honored with the first annual American Heroes award, for showing bravery when faced with impossible odds. 

 

On Sept. 11, 2001, Komorowski was one of  six FDNY firefighters with Ladder Co. 6, called to the World Trade Center just a short while before the tower collapsed. Arriving at the scene, Komorowski and the members of his ladder company rushed inside the building. As they rushed up the stairs the men of Ladder 6 stopped to assist Josephine Harris, a then 60-year-old Brooklyn grandmother, who was stuck in the stairwell of the building.
