Impressive season for Boys JV lacrosse team

The 2014 Garden City Junior Varsity lacrosse team posted an impressive 14-1-0 record against tough league and non-league competitors. Led by Head Coach Tom Flatley and Assistant Coach Brett Hepworth, the Trojans’ high octane offense, which averaged over 11 goals per game, proved too much in most every contest, as a stingy, gritty defense and stellar goaltending held opposing offenses to under four goals per game.

Senior leads way as Trojans win Wood Stick Classic

In his final Wood Stick Classic, Garden City senior Cody George made a lasting impression, netting a hat trick against his team’s Manhasset rivals.

The rivalry lived up to its billing as the Trojans held on for a 9-8 victory on Saturday afternoon in Garden City. Since 2000, the Trojans (11-2) have won 12 of the last 16 meetings between the teams.

“The Wood Stick has always been one of my favorite games to play in. The intensity is just insane, so many people in the crowd and just to beat Manhasset made my senior year 10 times better,” said George, who pushed his goal total for the year to 24.

Balance Of Power

Lady Panthers looking for a championship repeat

As the softball season wraps up, Adelphi’s Lady Panthers are aiming to finish strong and make another run at the Northeast-10 title. The Panthers are looking good and appear to be a lock in postseason with an impressive 14-8 NE-10 campaign and 25-16 overall record.

It felt like yesterday when the Panthers won it all last season during Coach Breanne Nasti’s inaugural season at the helm. Adelphi would go on to post a staggering 25-5 record in Northeast-10 Conference play, eventually capturing not only the Southwest Division Regular Season crown but also winning the program’s first tournament title, as the fifth seed in the NCAA East Regional. Coach Nasti and her assistants Ophir Sadeh and Leah McIntosh were named the NFCA Division II East Region Coaching Staff of the Year, thus another first-time accomplishment for the program.

A Change Of Scenery Does Him Good

Cliff Brantley making an immediate impact at Adelphi

Sometimes it’s best to make a change in your life. It’s possible something was holding you back from reaching your potential. In the case of Cliff Brantley, he just needed a change of scenery.

“Things were not working out for me at my previous school, baseball-wise,” said the junior who played at Wagner College in Staten Island. “I was in a position where I needed somewhere to play and I remembered receiving a letter from Coach Dom Scala my junior year in high school. I took the chance in telling him I was interested in playing. I visited the school and came down with my parents. I am extremely grateful to Adelphi and Coach Scala for giving me the opportunity to play.”
