Local Runners Go the Distance at Marine Corps Marathon

Written by Marilou Giammona Friday, 03 December 2010 00:00

But All Agree: There’s No Place Like Home

There were no tricks for many local runners who ran the Marine Corps Marathon in our nation’s capitol on Halloween. Indeed, they ran every step of the 26.2 mile course. There were, however, treats—the biggest of which was a finisher’s medal for the 35th annual Marine Corps Marathon.

For Floral Park resident Katie DiPietro-Rees, this was her eighth marathon. She already has five New York City Marathons and two Boston Marathons under her belt. “This was my first time doing Marine Corps, and  I ran my best time.” She finished in 3:05:06, despite having tripped on debris in the road and falling to the ground around the 4-mile mark. In a field of 21,944 overall finishers, 8,698 of whom were women, DiPietro-Rees placed 251st overall and was the 19th woman to cross the finish line.

Garden City’s Jacqueline Raynor – Nassau County Singles Champ

Friday, 19 November 2010 00:00

The Nassau County High School Tennis Tournament was recently held at Oceanside High School and Garden City High School’s Jacqueline “Jax” Raynor was seeded second overall going into the weekend of competition. Jax won her first round on Saturday 6-2, 6-0 as well as her first match on Sunday, 6-1, 6-3.

After only a 45-minute break, it was time to face her top-seeded Syosset opponent in the finals. Jax fell behind a break early on in the first set, but battled her way back on serve at 4-5. It was then one long point after another bringing the two to a tie at 6 all. Jax’s game got stronger with every point and she was able to win the tiebreak 7-4. It was all Raynor from then on. Jacqueline finished the second set at 6-2, taking the Nassau County Singles Title for the first time. Jax is pictured here after the tournament with her championship trophies.

Garden City Running Club News

Friday, 12 November 2010 00:00

In late May, the members of the Garden City Running Club, a group within our town’s Welcoming Club, began training for the inaugural Long Island Divas Half Marathon. While the initial group included a handful of local moms, it wasn’t long before the spirit of running with friends by your side became contagious and the team grew to include 56 women.   

It is with great pride that co-leaders of the group, Lynnette McKenna and Lisa Colletti announce that 100 percent of the team successfully completed the 13.1-mile race. While many of the women had never run more than a mile before signing on for this challenge, their hard work coupled with the encouragement of friends and family, carried them to the finish line.

Garden City High School Homecoming 2010

Friday, 05 November 2010 00:00

On Oct. 23, a Saturday filled with warm sunshine and light breezes – a day just meant for parades and celebrations, Homecoming 2010 kicked off in downtown Garden City. Below the fluttering gold leaves, the sidewalks bustled with activity as local businesses shared their wares and services with visitors to the annual Street Fair. Crowds lined the parade route as the Homecoming Parade moved west on Seventh Street, a rainbow of colors against the blue autumnal sky: Garden City High School’s familiar maroon and silver worn by Grand Marshal Jake White in the lead vehicle; myriad colorful banners and flags carried by high school groups and service clubs; the crisp black and maroon of the marching band; the royal blue of the Cub Scouts Pack 55; the fire engine red of, well, the Garden City fire engines; and, capturing the oohs and ahhs of aspiring young equestrians along the route, the tan and cream of the parade’s anchor horse and rider.
