Wins have not come easy for Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology this season, but the team picked up a huge confidence building victory Thursday, beating Singleton’s 14-8.   ZP combined fantastic defense and timely hitting to stay ahead of a very tough team.  The right side of the infield was flawless.  1st baseman Kevin McGinnis and 2nd baseman Marty Dunn both ranged far to their right numerous times to take hits away.   Tyrone Clark at 3rd and John Hernandez at short also flashed leather all night long.   The also outfield was solid with Bino Reverberi getting yet another assist and Tommy Dittmeier flagging down fly after fly.

 

At the plate, Dunn was also a star.   His 3-run homer gave ZP the lead and set the tone for more runs to come.  For the night,  Dittmeier was 4-4, Steve Lenci, Jerry Mazza, Anthony Nicolich and Dunn all had 3 hits.  Winning pitcher John DeFalco helped his cause with 2 hits while Hernandez and Tyrone Clark also banged out a pair of hits.

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.
