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.

If the Farmingdale Rams are going to get over the top and capture the Skyline Conference for men’s soccer in 2014, it will take some more aggressive play. That’s according to team captain and defensive player Vincent Danetti. 

 

“We don’t have a lot of big guys on our team,” Danetti said. “We need to play aggressive.”

Farmingdale team wins annual Bethpage Ocean to Sound Race

On Sunday, Sept. 28, the Farmingdale-based Runner’s Edge team earned first place overall in the 29th annual Bethpage Ocean to Sound Relay. The team, representing the Runner’s Edge running and multisport specialty store located at 242 Main St. in Farmingdale, consisted of Boyd Carrington, Andrew Coelho, Nick Pampena, Tim Lee, Shawn Anderson, Ryan Healy, Kevin Galante, and Brandon Abasolo. It completed the 50-mile course from Jones Beach State Park to Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park in Oyster Bay in 4 hours, 41 minutes, 58 seconds. The runners won by a margin of more than 10 minutes over the runner-up team from the Sayville & Smithtown Running Company, with much of the difference supplied by the strong Leg 2 performance by Andrew Coelho. Runner’s Edge Teams also took second place honors in the Mixed Open and Men’s Masters Divisions of the Relay. The Relay was sponsored by Bethpage Federal Credit Union (“Built to Give You More”), with new Race Directors Glen Wolther and Keith Montgomery managing the event for the host Greater Long Island Running Club.
