Blue Ribbon Prostate Cancer Run Rescheduled To December 9

Tuesday, 20 November 2012 00:00

Moved to Syosset-Woodbury Community Park

The 2012 Blue Ribbon 5K Run For Prostate Cancer, which had been scheduled for Sunday, Nov. 18, has been postponed until Sunday, Dec. 9, and has been moved to a new location, Syosset-Woodbury Community Park, 7800 Jericho Turnpike in Woodbury.

It is never an easy task to have to postpone an event, not to mention having to move it to a different location. However, the devastation from Superstorm Sandy required it. The Town of Oyster Bay Golf Course is not yet safe for an event to take place there due to the storm. Fortunately, with the enthusiastic cooperation of Town Supervisor Venditto and the Town of Oyster Bay Parks Department, the event has been rescheduled and relocated to the scenic grounds of Syosset-Woodbury Community Park, which is just a mile from the original location.

Garden City Doc Dribbles Into NY Basketball Hall Of Fame

Written by Christine Weiner Monday, 05 November 2012 16:56

The night began at the New York Athletic Club with a rousing cheer as the 2012 NY Basketball Hall of Fame inductees were ushered into the club’s spacious ballroom.  This year, NCAA Final Four hero-turned-Garden City-dentist Donald “Red” Goldstein goes into the hall alongside fellow Big Apple ballers Ray Felix, Connie Simmons, Ricky Sobers and Charles Yelverton along with high school coach Chuck Granby. As Goldstein made his way toward the podium alongside famed New York Post sports columnist Peter Vecsey, the crowd of New York basketball royalty, family and friends responded with a standing ovation. During his acceptance speech, the humble Brooklyn native spoke of the first time he got goose bumps upon hearing Louisville Assistant Coach John Dromo give the pep talk at the 1959 NCAA Tournament Final Four. Louisville, led by Goldstein, pulled off one of the biggest upsets in NCAA tournament history when they defeated No. 2 Kentucky, 76-61. His lucky streak continued when later on that year he joined forces with fellow superstar collegians and future NBA Hall of Famers Oscar Robertson and Jerry West to win a gold medal in basketball at the 1959 Pan American Games. In a show of humility that those closest have come to expect, Goldstein failed to mention this equally impressive accomplishment.

Charlie Grego, PGA, the assistant professional at the Garden City Golf Club (GCGC), spent his evening off instructing Bigs and Littles from Big Brothers Big Sisters of Long Island (BBBSLI) on August 27 at Eisenhower Park Driving Range.

In fact, he planned and hosted the evening of golf instruction with the generous assistance of members of GCGC. Charlie secured a donation from Greg Burke of Lane Office Dirtt Knoll to purchase collared shirts for all participants, worked with Al Vanasco to obtain a permit to reserve stalls at the driving range and borrowed six sets of junior golf clubs with the assistance of Ron Furman. Additionally, Charlie enlisted the help of fellow golf professionals Matt Lavolsi, assistant professional/PGA apprentice of Cherry Valley Club and J.R Repetti, outside operations of GCGC to provide instruction for the 12 Bigs and Littles from BBBSLI.

Garden City Girls Swim Team Sets Nassau County Record

Written by Ed Rotondo Friday, 12 October 2012 00:00
The Garden City girls swim team has been a model of consistency over the past 13 years for coach Anne Sullivan. And the term consistent may be selling them short. They have been consistently awesome, having won the Nassau County title each of the last 13 years, while going undefeated for the past 10 seasons.  

With the season under way the Lady Trojan swimmers are keeping the streak alive with a perfect 4-0 record. Their latest victory was on Thursday at Jericho by a score of 104 to 74. The significance of this particular victory was that Coach Sullivan and the girls swim team has now won an incredible 100 consecutive victories, a Garden City record for any sport and a Nassau County swim record. The streak started in 2001 after GC lost a meet to Sewanhaka. The team went on to win their last meet of 2001 and haven’t looked back since.  When asked about the accomplishment Coach Sullivan remarked “I’m not really into the numbers, it’s always been about the girls doing their best – and that has always been good enough for us to win.”
