Bombers 10U travel baseball team announces tryouts

The Garden City Bombers 10U travel baseball team recently announced tryouts for 2014 Baseball Season. The Bombers play a high level of play versus other competitive travel teams from throughout the New York and Long Island metro area. All homes games are in Garden City; while preference is given to Garden City residents, boys from surrounding communities, such as Hempstead and Roosevelt are also welcome, and this diversity supports a very good team.

The spring season includes games every weekend, and tournaments during the weekends of Memorial Day, Father’s Day, and Independence Day.  The summer season, which runs until mid-August, generally includes weekend and weeknight play. There are also special games planned at the original Yankee Stadium, and on the new baseball field at Governors Island. The team also plays a fall season, and has extensive indoor training during winter months.    

To be eligible, a player should be 10 years old by April 30, 2014.     

Interested parents can inquire at 516-637-8644.

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.

Garden City topples Westbury

When a team is struggling to find consistency, they look for their star player to take charge and swing the momentum back in their favor. That is precisely what junior Sam Auricchio did for the Garden City girls basketball team in their 61-41 victory over Westbury.

“She means everything to this team,” said Head Coach Anthony Sparacia. “She has really become an elite player because she is an all around player, whereas she used to just be a shooter, now she’s going to the rim and the free throw line. She shoots the ball lights out from the perimeter—she makes us go,” he added.

Adelphi alum follows in

Hall of Famer’s footsteps

Making it to the Major Lacrosse League is an extraordinary feat, especially if you come from a Division II lacrosse program. But for former Adelphi University standout Joe Vitale, it’s a family tradition.

At age 8, Vitale was handed his first lacrosse stick by his uncle, New York Saints attacker Don Borges. Later, Vitale went on to earn All-American honors at Adelphi, where he graduated in 2012 after leading the team to a National Championship game appearance. This past year, the 23-year-old Lynbrook native earned a paycheck playing for the MLL’s New York Lizards, who play home games at Hofstra University.
