After a hard-fought battle for the Nassau County Lacrosse Class A Championship, on May 28, the Lady Dalers of Farmingdale would defeat the Syosset Braves 12-7, capturing the team’s ninth straight championship title.
Since 2001, the Lady Dalers have won 13 county championships, 7 Long Island championships, and three New York State championships.
Playing to a big crowd at Adelphi University, the Lady Dalers came out on the offensive early, putting away 7 goals before the Braves would score with 4:25 remaining in the first half.
Having already scored 5 of her 8 goals of the night, the Dalers’ Bridgett Weill would lead the squad into the half, up by a score of 8-2.
In the second half, the Lady Dalers started out a little slow, giving the Braves a window of opportunity to score twice. But it wasn’t long before Weill went back to work, scoring three more times.
Farmingdale’s Chrissy Kelly also gave a breakout performance, with seven assists and a goal, while Goalie Captain Kirk kept the team in it with 12 saves in the game.
The Lady Dalers’ Jill Alonso, Zoe Zebersky and Cailee Perettine would also score, giving Farmingdale a shot at defending their Long Island Championship title.
The Lady Dalers will now head to Dowling College to face-off against the Suffolk County Class A Champs.

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.

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.
