Team leaders get grand send off

The 2013 Garden City boys basketball team celebrated Senior Night on Monday, Feb. 10 against Wantagh. The seniors, all of whom are captains this season, are Spencer Bais, Ed Blatz, Dan Bonchonsky, Andrew Granville, and Kyle Skramko. Each of the players made significant contributions to this year’s team.

The boys, joined by their parents at mid-court, were presented photo plaques by coach Larry Steimer before the game honoring their years on the team. The game against Wantagh also featured a ‘white-out’ highlighted by coach Steimer’s very formal three-piece white suit. As a team, the GC boys have fallen just short of getting into the playoffs with two disappointing close losses to end the season.

 

Soccer Coaches Sought

Friday, 22 February 2013 00:00

The Garden City Centennial Soccer Club is looking for qualified coaches to head its new U10 teams that will tryout in June 2013. The birthdates for the children on these teams will fall between Aug. 1, 2003 and Dec. 31, 2004. 

League play for these teams will begin in September 2013. Anyone interested in these positions would need to be available to run practices in the summer, begin with tournaments in August, be able to attend practices/games at least two times a week during the school year and be able to commit themselves and their teams for several tournaments during the year. A good candidate for this position will have good knowledge of all aspects of soccer and must be able to share the love of the game with elementary school-aged children. The commitment is great but the rewards are greater.

If you are interested in these positions, please contact Sandra Young at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . An interest sheet will then be mailed to you that must be returned by the March 1 deadline in order to be considered.

Forty-two-year-old Garden City speedster Karen Pompay took first place honors among the masters (age 40 plus) women in lat month’s Sayville Running Company 10-Mile Run to the Blue Point Brewery. 

Pompay crossed the finish line in 1 hour, 13 minutes, 13 seconds, more than a full minute in front of front of Christine Hart of Islip Terrace, who was the second place women’s master.

While it wasn’t nearly as warm as it was for the 2012 edition of the run, Mother Nature provided clear skies and a not-too-terrible temperature on that January morning for the 3rd annual running of the Sayville Running Company 10-Mile Run to the Blue Point Brewery. The race’s 1,079 finishers enjoyed a fast, flat 10-mile course from Patchogue through Blue Point and Bayport to Sayville and back followed by one of the best post-race parties around, courtesy of Pete Cotter and his team at the Blue Point Brewery in Patchogue.

Ferraros Bring Elite Hockey To Eisenhower Park

World-class sports facility

comes to Nassau County

Call it a coincidence, but the timing for Chris and Peter Ferraro’s announcement of the creation of a new hockey and recreation facility couldn’t be any better.

Two days before the National Hockey League was set to drop the puck for a shortened, 48-game season beginning on Jan. 19, the Ferraro twins – former NHL players and Olympians themselves – broke ground on their $15 million, privately financed Twin Rinks Ice Center at Eisenhower Park.

“It is our passion to support Long Island families so that they will no longer have to be torn apart or have their family life disrupted just because a child excels in hockey and wants to try to make it to the NHL,” said Chris Ferraro. “This facility will enable us to create a hockey hot bed right here on Long Island.”
