Another record-breaking field of 392 runners and walkers crossed the finish line at the Plainview-Old Bethpage Middle School at the 7th Annual Heart & Sole 5 Kilometer Run on Sunday morning, July 11. It was the second year in a row that the number of finishers for this event broke the race record!
Lots of runners are great at the 5K distance and lots of other runners prefer the longer half marathon distance, but Long Island’s two classic women’s races will be teaming up to see who are the most versatile female runners at both distances.
Farmingdale resident and member of the Farmingdale High School Varsity Softball team Tori Kornfeld, pitched a one-hit shutout for the Long Island Mustangs 18U team last Saturday in the Triple Crown Firecracker Frenzy Fastpitch Softball Tournament in Brookhaven.
Kornfeld pitched six and one-third innings of no-hit ball against the LI Shock until giving up a bloop hit that dropped just behind the second baseman and in front of the right fielder. Kornfeld struck out nine batters and walked one leading the LI Mustangs to a 5-0 win in the qualifying round. She then gave up only two hits the next day in a 3-1 loss in the semi-finals, allowing no earned runs and striking out seven. Kornfeld has an earned run average of just under one for this year’s tournament season.

The Saint Kilian Saints baseball team capped off their perfect 12-0 CYO season with an 11-2 championship game victory. James Sotis got the start and was outstanding; he went six innings giving up only one earned run to earn the win.

Aaron Powell closed the game out by striking out the side in the seventh inning.
In season notables Dan Griffin (6-0 with a 0.00 era in 24 innings pitched striking out 49 batters), Steve Harris (.586 BA), James Sotis (four wins and a 2.33 era), PJ Spadalik, Brendan Nocella, Nico Rivera and Aaron Powell for all around outstanding play!
Record breaking scores propelled the Farmingdale Golf Team to win their second consecutive Nassau County and Long Island Championships this year. An unfortunate error omitted the team’s page from their yearbook, so it is with great pride that the school congratulate seniors Kurt Brey, James Darcy and Brandon Romano along with team members Kyle Brey, Matthew Lowe, and Michael Zelanzy for not only winning, but for breaking a Nassau County record, coming in first place in Nassau County, leading the tournament by 52 strokes and setting a Nassau County record for the lowest total team strokes, 759 for the two-day tournament. They also went on to beat Kings Park in the Long Island Championship, winning by 25 strokes at the Bethpage Black Course making it 32 straight matches without a loss.
