Rams Fall in First National Women’s Tennis Appearance

The Farmingdale State College Women’s Tennis team traveled to regional host, Amherst College for the First Round of the NCAA Division III Women’s Tennis Tournament last week, but fell to Endicott College 5-2 in the opening round.

 

The Rams end their first-ever Championship season at 15-3 overall, while the Gulls advance to Second Round action against Amherst.

 

Farmingdale State fell behind 3-0 in doubles play, despite two close decisions. Freshman Tatiana Rosamilia and sophomore Denise Liguori were defeated 8-2 in the no. 3 spot, against freshmen Jamie Zompa and Skyelar MacLeod.

 

In No. 1 doubles play, junior Jessica Sickles and Priscilla Signore fell by a close 8-6 decision to junior Amy Heacox and freshman Mackenzie Rhodes. Wrapping up doubles play in the #2 spot were freshman Michelle Fredericks and junior Alex Bentz, who fell in a tiebreaker, 9-8 (7-

2), to sophomores Suzie Newman and Brittany Potter.

 

At No. 3 singles, Rhodes got the Gulls their fourth point with a 6-0, 6-1 decision, before the Rams took two straight matches from Endicott. Sickles defeated Heacox at #1 singles (6-3, 6-0) and Rosamilia took a 6-0, 6-2 decision over sophomore Savannah Deady to make it a 4-2 score.

 

Endicott got their match-winning point in the No. 6 spot with a 6-2, 6-4 win, while both the No. 2 and No. 4 spots were split when the match was called. The Rams and Coach Waterhouse will look to get back to the NCAA’s in 2015 after this record-setting season, as they return their entire roster.

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.
