The 2011 Lady Daler Softball Team, under the direction of Laura Malone and Brandon Oppenheim, had the season most softball athletes dream of. For the first time in program history, the Lady Dalers won the Nassau County Title. That led to the next battle, for the Long Island title against the Suffolk premier team, Bay Shore. They won the LI title 11 times in the last 17 years, are the 2010 state champions, and have the win ingest coach in New York, Jim McGowan.
After beating West Islip for the Long Island Class A Championship, the Dalers went up to White Plains on Wednesday, June 8 to take on Shenendehowa High School for the New York State semifinals. With temperatures on the field over 100 degrees, many line changes were needed to keep the players hydrated.
The Dalers came out hot, by scoring three goals in the first three and a half minutes. They lead 6-2 after the first quarter, 9-5 after two, and 12-7 after three quarters. Shenendehowa started a comeback in the fourth and got the score to 12-9 with five minutes left.
Jan. 12, 2010 marked a particularly tragic day in Haiti’s history, as the effects of the 7.0 magnitude earthquake that shook the country’s already impoverished population and infrastructure were catastrophic.
Paradox Cafe continued their winning ways against Changing Times this past week, posting a 26-7 victory. The game started off tight in the first four innings with the score 7-6 in favor of Paradox. The fifth and eighth innings proved to be the game changers and Paradox broke out for 19 runs combined. Solid pitching by Bob Thompson carried through along with strong defense including multiple rundowns by Billy Gonzalez in left field. Swinging the bat well on the night were Gary Innes, Al Celeste and Walter Hasemann each with 3 RBIs. The whole team continues to consistently bat up and down the order and more importantly, to play strong defense. Paradox wishes a speedy recovery to Tony Scime who injured his leg this past Friday.
The Farmingdale Xtreme Girls U8 tournament team captured first place at the Commack Memorial Weekend Soccer Tournament. The team went undefeated and played amazing soccer. The coaches are Xtremely proud of all the players as they all played as a team on and off the field. These girls had a great U8 winter and spring season playing up against U9, and they kept it up for their first spring tournament! Special thanks to all parents for their dedication and support for all the leagues and tournaments this past year.
Under the direction of coaches Laura Malone and Brandon Oppenheim the 2011 varsity Lady Daler softball team finished the regular season in second place with a conference record of 10-5. Overall, they finished 13-6 in what many consider the most elite conference for Long Island softball. They began their playoff journey seeded second.
Congratulations to local endurance athletes Amy Goldstein and John Kaufmann of Farmingdale, who were among the hardy finishers in the Nassau-Suffolk Greenbelt Trail 25 Kilometer Run, held on Saturday, May 7.
The clash between Autocraft and Lockie & Nowachek Family Chiropractors, both courting 1-2 records, was one of those old time barnburners with Autocraft coming out on top 17-15. There were some great moments for Autocraft that overcame the bad. The topper was a home run blast by Donnie Simone that cleared the fence behind the trees in left center, something rarely seen. Mike Ferreti kept L&N honest by pitching a strong game giving little or nothing away. Veteran Dave Rubino looked like his early days having a multi-hit night including one off the pole in deep left center. Aldo Balducci, Joe “Mr. Steady” Lutz, Dennis “Ace” Oehl, and Brian Landy all had big nights at the plate, as did Big Mike Mormino. Frankie “Quatro cinco seis” promised his teammates a hit next game.
