New York Islanders Hold Ice Girls Tryouts at Iceworks Syosset

Written by Karen Gellender Friday, 19 August 2011 00:00

Every hockey fan likes to think their favorite team is special, but the New York Islanders can boast that they were the first team in the NHL to introduce the Ice Girls: a dedicated team of skaters who present the team’s flag at every game. On Saturday, Aug. 6, 24 female skaters headed to Iceworks Syosset on Underhill Boulevard to try out for one of only 10 spots on the 2011-2012 Ice Girls team.

With the exception of one lockout season (2004-2005), the Ice Girls have been part of the show at Islanders’ games since the 2001-2002 season. In addition to presenting the Islanders flag at every game, Ice Girls keep the ice clean during games, and perform an additional routine when the team wins. The girls must be over 18 with strong skating skills, capable of skating backwards as well as doing lunges, spirals, t-stops and power crossovers.

San Diego Padres Draft Garden City’s Matt Colantonio

Chaminade HS Alum on the Fast Track To Making Major League Debut

Considering his .341 batting average and the six runs he drove home in the first 14 games of his professional baseball career, it might feel like slugger Matt Colantonio is an overnight success. But for the best hitter to come out of Chaminade High School since 1980’s Minnesota Twins great Gene Larkin, the road to the big leagues has been long and winding.

Colantonio, 22, was selected in the 22nd round, 683rd overall, by the San Diego Padres in this year’s Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft. After signing with the franchise, he reported to a Rookie League baseball mini-camp in Phoenix, Arizona before traveling to Oregon for work in the Northwest League with the Padres’ Class A affiliate: the Eugene Emeralds.
