All-Star LAX Game Comes To Glen Cove

 Glen Cove High School will host the first-ever Dan Daly Cup Lacrosse All-Star game on Saturday, June 21 at noon.

 

Sponsored by the U.S. Marine Corps, in partnership with the Nassau County Lacrosse Coaches Association, the New York Lizards professional lacrosse team, the City of Glen Cove and the Glen Cove School District, the game will feature the top high school junior lacrosse players from Long Island, recognizing their superior achievement and building awareness of the legacy of U.S. Marine Sgt. Maj. Dan Daly.

 

Daly, who grew up in Glen Cove, was a two-time Medal of Honor recipient and one of the Marine Corps’ most admired and decorated heroes. Glen Cove Mayor Reginald Spinello will conduct a rededication of the Dan Daly Memorial at Glen Cove Monument Park on the morning of

the cup game. Following the ceremony, there will be a parade down Dosoris Lane led by the 30-member Quantico Marine Corps Band and 300 Marines culminating at Glen Cove High School’s Maiden Field, where the game will be played. Spinello will also execute the official coin toss at the start of the game. Nassau and Suffolk County lacrosse coaches, in conjunction with New York Lizards players, will serve as coaches for the game, and the Lizards organization will honor the Daly Cup winning team at their July 3 home game.

 

Leading up to the Dan Daly Cup game, players and Glen Cove students will have the opportunity to participate in camps led by the Marine Corps that will include fitness training, lacrosse skills training and character-building exercises, as well as discussions about Daly and what his contributions mean to present-day Marines. 

 

“This is a wonderful opportunity for the Glen Cove School District,” said Glen Cove Superintendent of Schools Maria Rianna. “These organizations coming together have brought a real sense of community to this event. We are proud to have been selected to host some of the most talented lacrosse players on the Island. Most importantly, this is an opportunity to show our students what character and leadership are all about, as we bring them together with members of the Marine Corps and honor a true Glen Cove hero in Sgt. Maj. Dan Daly.”

 

Glen Cove varsity lacrosse players Philip Grella and Sean Peet are featured in the U.S. Marines poster that advertises the Daly Cup game. Additionally, the Glen Cove High School Select Choir will perform at halftime of the cup game.


News

If Heather Lehrman is not yet a familiar face to local pet owners, her name is likely to soon become a household name to dog lovers and families with young children, as her children’s book, Bullied at the Dog Park, was released this week. The book is based on a real-life incident with her own dog, Herbie, and fans will have a chance to meet her and Herbie at a book signing at Petco in Glen Cove on Saturday, Oct. 25.

 

“I wanted to help get the message out in my own way about the effects of bullying,” says Lehrman, a resident of Great Neck. “This book teaches children valuable lessons about treating all dogs (and people) with respect, and the importance of simple kindness.”

It was Dec. 31, 1999, the last day of the 20th century, and Florence Dolling was preparing an elaborate Thai dinner for a New Year’s Eve celebration in her home in Glen Cove when the phone rang.  It was her doctor reporting that, “Yes, it was breast cancer.” She kept on cooking, attempting to retain as much normalcy as she could muster, knowing that, with the new millennium, there would certainly come change.

 

“I wore a red strapless bustier for the party because I thought I was saying goodbye to the ‘girls’,” she says. “My husband, my sense of humor, and my friends, helped me get through that night,” she recalls.

On Tuesday, Oct. 7, the Glen Cove Finley Middle School opened their football season with a home game against Thompson Middle School. The game opened with the Glen Cove offense going on a nice drive, which saw quarterback Mike Vaughan score on a 30-yard touchdown run. 

Six North Shore High School athletes competed in the 2014 JCC Maccabi Games and led the New York Delegation to victory, winning gold. The students included Jacob Abramowitz, Brett Bennett, Drew Jacklin, Ben Lerner, Josh Mandell, and Ben Saltzman. The Maccabi Games is a week-long Olympic tournament for Jewish teenage athletes, ages 14-16 years old. It is held in numerous venues across the United States. 

 

Bennett proudly said, “Competing in the Maccabi Games was a unique and thrilling experience for me. It not only was a highly competitive basketball tournament, but it also emphasized the importance of building strong values such as good sportsmanship, leadership, team unity, compassion and respect.

This, for me, was an experience of a lifetime!”
