Garden City suffers tough loss

The Trojans of Garden City are still holding onto control of their own playoff destiny, even after a tough loss to Westbury 62-45.

“We got some good shots, we just didn’t finish,” said Garden City Head Coach Larry Steiner. “Westbury did a job on defense,” he added. Westbury chose to play a 1-3-1 half court trap to limit the effectiveness of Garden City’s strength, which is its outside shooting. The Trojans struggled to get through the trap.  

 

Travel Soccer Coach Forms Available

Friday, 14 February 2014 09:33

The Garden City Centennial Soccer Club is looking for qualified coaches to head its new U10 teams that will tryout in June 2014. The birthdates for the children on these teams will fall between Aug. 1, 2004 and Dec. 31, 2005.  

League play for these teams will begin in September 2014. Anyone interested in these positions would need to be available to run practices in the summer, begin with tournaments in August, be able to attend practices/games at least two times a week during the school year and be able to commit themselves and their teams for several tournaments during the year. A good candidate for this position will have good knowledge of all aspects of soccer and must be able to share the love of the game with elementary school-aged children. The commitment is great but the rewards are greater.

Jessica Kitrys leading

Adelphi to best start in years

In this Sportscenter Era in which every athlete wants to become the next LeBron James or Kobe Bryant, it is refreshing to hear a player attempt to carve her own path. The leading scorer on No. 13-ranked Adelphi Panthers basketball is content being the best Jessica Kitrys she can be.

“I never really had a favorite athlete growing up,” said the senior from Parlin, NJ. “I just have a favorite team,” she added. That team-first mentality has enabled her to lead the Adelphi Panthers to a 12-1 start to the season which garnered national recognition in the latest coaches poll. They peaked at No. 13 with only one team in the NE-10 ranked higher, and that is Bentley University which also began 12-0.
