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.

News

At a recent meeting of the Farmingdale Board of Education, school district superintendent John Lorentz discussed New York State’s proposal to invest $2 billion into districts statewide

through the Smart Schools Bond Act.

 

If approved by voters in the upcoming general elections, the act would allow the state to borrow $2 billion in the form of a capital bond to provide students with access to classroom

technology and high-speed internet connectivity, with the goal of equalizing opportunities for children to learn, adding classroom space, expanding pre-kindergarten programs, replacing classroom trailers with permanent instructional space and installing high-tech security features in schools. 

Over the weekend, thousands of Long Island residents flocked to the Village of Farmingdale for its 26th annual Columbus Day Weekend Fair and Fireman’s carnival. Running from Oct. 9

to 13, the five-day affair featured live music from Farmingdale’s own Electric Dudes and Long Island party band Superbad, a Fire Department barbecue, food vendors, a street fair, fireworks, carnival rides, games for kids of all ages and, of course, the Columbus Day parade.

The 2014 Reilly Cup finals featured the two most successful OTHG teams over the last 9 years. Sal’s Place and Singleton’s have had 11 finals appearances and 7 championships between them during this period of time. They split 2 games during the regular season and Singleton’s became the winner’s bracket representative in the 2014 Cup by beating Sal’s deep in the tournament.

 

Sal’s took the first game 14-7. The game was close until the 8th inning when Sal’s broke it open with some timely hits and taking advantage of a Singleton’s miscue or two.  Sal’s held

Singleton’s to 7 runs with outstanding all-around defense, which was particularly impressive given that some of their significant contributors were visibly fighting through late-season injuries.
