Men’s Tennis Selected to Win Fourth Straight Title

Three-time defending champion Farmingdale State has been selected to capture the 2014 Skyline men’s tennis title in voting conducted by the league’s seven head coaches.

 

The Rams received five first-place votes and 34 total points, while 2013 runner-up Mount Saint Mary placed second in the poll with 32 overall points and a pair of first-place votes. Farmingdale State welcomes back senior Judd Bahoui, who compiled a 10-2 record in

singles play and an 11-1 mark in doubles action a year ago.

 

Mount Saint Mary College returns a pair of All-Conference selections in senior Greg Jacob and sophomore Mike Balokoz. A three-time All-Conference honoree, Jacob recorded nine victories at the No. 1 flight last season, while Balokoz had a team-high 12 wins in singles play en route to garnering second-team All-Conference distinction.

 

The semifinals of the 2014 Skyline Men’s Tennis Championship will be held on Thursday, April 24, with the finals scheduled for Saturday, April 26.

Driving rain and cold temperatures could not keep Long Islanders from coming out to support the first annual DogFest Walk ‘n Roll, a fundraiser for Canine Companions for Independence. Held for the first time at Marjorie Post Park in nearby Massapequa, dogs of all breeds and sizes came with their humans with one goal in mind; to raise funds for CCI.

 

Event organizer Yvonne Dagger, past president and now board member, discussed the importance of the event. 

It’s been more than 50 years since the Farmingdale High School class of 1964 roamed the halls of their beloved high school, but that doesn’t mean that the memories have faded. The class—the first to graduate from Farmingdale High—came together on Saturday, October 18 at the Marriott in Islandia to celebrate all of the good times past and make new memories as a class.

3rd Grade Division

The Giants and Jets met for the 2nd time this season, with the Giants again getting the victory over the Jets.  Jalen Gordon scored late into the 1st half for the Giants, which turned out to be the only points in the half.  The Giants shut the Jets down for both halves, keeping the offense off the board.  The Jets strong point this weekend was the defense, with Kyle June and Jake Kuller picking up the weekly William June Foundation awards.  In what is turning into a rough offensive season for the Jets, these awards continue to remind the boys of the perseverance and determination of the award’s namesake and his “never say quit” attitude.
