On Thursday, Feb. 3, AMF Garden City Lanes transformed from a bowling alley into an Islanders playground, as eight players laced up their clown-like, ruby-red bowling shoes and hit the hardwood with some of their biggest fans. The Lady Islanders Girls Ice Hockey Program of Long Island held their second annual Bowl-A-Thon in conjunction with the Islanders to fundraise for their Under-19, Under-14, Under-12 and Under-10 teams. The four female squads, solicited sponsors for this year’s event, collecting over $6,000 to help pay for ice time, jerseys, equipment, tournament registrations, league fees and more. In addition to raising money, the girls were rewarded with the opportunity to bowl with some of their hockey heroes. They also had the chance to take numerous photos with the boys in blue and brought home bags full of autographed yearbooks and player cards. Veterans Matt Moulson, Bruno Gervais and Josh Bailey led the way and brought rookie teammates Nathan Lawson, Ty Wishart, Jeremy Colliton and Travis Hamonic along for the evening’s festivities.

Talented high school baseball players throughout Nassau and Suffolk Counties, and New York City are hoping to defray the hefty price tag of a college education using their talents on the baseball diamond. Yet according to the NCAA, only 6.4 percent of high school students go on to play collegiate baseball and fewer still receive athletic scholarships.
High school baseball players and their families can take more of a proactive approach to succeed on the college level and beyond. Pro1 Sportz, a full-service, integrated sports agency serving New York and New Jersey is offering a free, no obligation seminar for high school baseball players and their families on navigating through the college recruiting process.
