High school students will get a chance to show off their powerful strokes and strong footwork, and learn about often overlooked opportunities to play college tennis from coaches at USTA Eastern’s 24th Annual College Showcase Day.
The Showcase, which will be held Nov. 7 at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Queens, is designed to reach the thousands of students who are not recruited by the top college tennis teams, but want to play tennis after graduation.
GC Thunder 7 took on a very athletic Baldwin Bomber team at home this past Sunday. All week, the Thunder team practiced to perfect their strategy, and also to rally around the idea of playing hard every minute of every game. After watching the boys play Baldwin, it is clear that the Thunder team is committed to taking that message with them out on the field. After the Bombers scored on their opening drive, the Thunder answered right back with a touchdown. Pierce Archer cutting his way through the defense, with great blocking by Griffin Minuto, Thomas McAuley, Timmy O’Hanlon, and Enzo Cupani. The Bombers then engineered another scoring drive, with the hope that it would stifle the heart of the Thunder defense, but Luke Concannon, Joseph Donovan, and Jack Greene, showed otherwise, denying the Baldwin offense the extra point. The first half proved to both teams that this was going to be a battle, and as is the case of any great game, neither side would be giving away points easy.

GC Thunder 7’s Maroon traveled to Floral Park for their fourth game of the season, and immediately went to work on offense as Willie Blair chose heads and won the coin toss. Pierce Archer cut his way through the defense, with great blocks by Michael Tully, and Joseph Donovan, that ultimately led to his 50-yard touchdown run, his first of two on the day. From there, it was all Thunder offense, executing plays they labored over in practice. Tommy Boland taking the snaps, Thomas McAuley, Michael Haass with big runs wearing down the Titan front line and linebacker core leading to Thunder touchdowns by Grant Molloy, and by Griffin Minuto. Aiden Magnotta supplying the extra point, and Garden City was showing the results of strong coaching in a well-executed bounce back performance.

CSEA Nassau Local 830, Nassau County’s largest public service union with 10,000 members, is holding their First Annual 5K Run/Walk on Sunday, Oct. 31, at Nassau Community College in Garden City. They have partnered with the Jorge Posada Foundation for Craniosynostosis and CAPPS (Craniosynostosis and Positional Plagiocephaly Support Inc.) Hundreds of runners and dozens of sponsors have already confirmed participation.
Craniosynostosis is a condition in which one or more of the sutures of an infant’s skull prematurely fuse. Surgery is the only treatment for this. Positional Plagiocephaly is when the sutures are open and early diagnosis and treatment are important to avoid further deformity. One in every 2,000 infants are affected by Craniosynostosis and one in every 350 by Positional Plagiocephaly.
This year the Running Club of Garden City, a committee within the Welcoming Club of Garden City, is pleased to report their plans to participate in many exciting running events! It is with great pleasure that committee co-leaders Lynnette McKenna and Lisa Colletti announce that over 50 women from our club will be participating in the first ever, women’s only ”Diva Half Marathon” on Saturday, Oct. 3. This event will be taking place in the Eisenhower Park and Museum Row area.
Many of these women had never run more than a mile or two at any time before joining our group. Within a few weeks of their training, mileage racked up and friendships evolved over the early morning runs throughout the village. The Divas have become a well-known group within our town and a familiar fixture at the St. Paul’s meeting spot.
