Webb‘s No-Hitter Takes Rams To 4th Straight Title

Junior pitcher Taylor Webb threw a no-hitter to win 10-0 over top-seeded Sage, and lead Farmingdale State to their fourth consecutive Skyline Championship. 

 

The Rams earned the conference’s automatic bid to the 2014 NCAA Division III Softball Tournament this year. 

 

Sophomore catcher Meagan Anderson led off the game with a bunt single and later scored on a Michelle Mongiello RBI single to center to quickly put Farmingdale State (23-12) ahead 1-0.

 

The Rams extended their lead to 2-0 in the second inning on an RBI single to center by junior shortstop Hillary Genova.

 

In the top of the fourth, Anderson hit a two out RBI single to left field, before Mongiello’s RBI double to right center increased the advantage to 4-0.

 

Freshman second baseman Victoria D’Alessandro put Farmingdale State on top 5-0 in the fifth with an RBI fielder’s choice and the Rams followed with an unearled run to make it 6-0. With two outs and the bases loaded, Mongiello hit a grand slam to center field to

put the game out of reach at 10-0.

 

Mongiello was 3-for-4 at the plate with a grand slam, a run scored and 5 RBI, while Anderson had three hits, an RBI and scored three runs.

 

Webb (12-4) pitched five no-hit innings with a game-high seven strikeouts.

 

The NCAA has made a change in its regional format for the 2014 NCAA Division III Softball Championship. This year the event will feature 16 regional championships (14 four-team sites and two three-team sites) with a standard double-elimination format. The 16 regional winners will advance to eight super regional sites and play a best-of-three series for the right to move onto the national championship, which will be in Tyler, Texas.

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.
