If you are a hockey player who plays or resides on Long Island, then you have probably heard of Hockey Underground, located at 145 Milbar Blvd. in Farmingdale.

Sometimes taking advice from people is not the best option, as Scott Litts found out. He used that theory and it ended up being one of the best decisions he ever made. The Ronkonkoma native has put together a tremendous season for the Dowling men’s cross country team. He has led the squad to a ranked position in the ECC conference tournament which qualified them for a spot in the NCAA regionals in Boston, MA.
“My brother told me not to be on the winter track team,” said Litts. “He told me I would hate it and it was basically just running in snow. I joined, I ended up making a ton of friends and I enjoyed it,” he added. Fortunately, Litts did not heed the advice of his brother because that decision began a long and prosperous career as a runner for him once he ditched playing soccer.
Massapequa’s Brendan Henry took to the streets in the 2013 ING New York City Marathon representing USTA Serves, the philanthropic and charitable entity of the United States Tennis Association, helping to raise funds for the programs it supports.

For Carlos Mendes, it’s about coming home. The Mineola native, who became the revived New York Cosmos soccer team’s first signing in nearly three decades last December, is itching to bring a premier soccer club back to its storied glory.
His time in Mineola set him up for the star defender that was set to run the pitch when the revived Cosmos kicked off its season on Aug. 3 at Hofstra University against the Fort Lauderdale Strikers. Mendes played soccer for the Mineola Portuguese Soccer Club from 1993-1998 and the Albertson Soccer Club before graduating from the Wheatley School and attending Old Dominion University.
As a freshman, Ashlee Thompson posted an impressive season for Farmingdale State’s women soccer team. She scored 10 goals and added four assists in just 18 games. To this point, she has already exceeded those statistics. In her sophomore season, the Ronkonkoma native has 13 goals and four assists through 17 games.
Thompson has always been a standout athlete. She began playing soccer at the age of four, and also was a member of the volleyball, softball and basketball teams in middle school. Eventually, soccer became the main focus and it has brought her to Division-III SUNY Farmingdale.
