Lady Dalers Do It Again

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.

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.
