Leo Petrina made crossing the finish line in 16:40 look easy, scoring a victory over defending champion Katie DiCamillo by a 41-second margin.

The Farmingdale Xtreme U7 Girls Tournament Team recently won the U7 division at the Plainedge Fathers Day Tournament. The girls finished with a 5-0 record, allowing not one goal against them. They played tough teams from Valley Stream, HBC, POB, New Hyde Park and Plainedge. Going into the last game the Xtreme were tied with Plainedge for first but defeated Plainedge on a penalty kick by Kelysha Petit-Frere with five minutes left in the game to win the tournament. All the girls contributed playing fantastic soccer! Coach Steve Kolodny is proud of all of his players. A special thanks to all the dads who spent their Father’s Day watching their daughters play.
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.
Before the highlights this week, the Over the Hill Gang sends its best wishes to Singleton’s manager Richie Brancaccio as he recovers from surgery. Come back soon Richie, “Big Red” is not the same without you!

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. The Saints got clutch RBI hits from Aaron Powell, Brendan Nocella, Nick Panza, and Nico Rivera but the offensive star of the game was Phil D’Abbraccio who hit a three-run, fence-clearing home run to the deepest part of the ball field to give the Saints a 6-0 lead. 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!
