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

Glen Cove residents may see a 1.64 percent increase in the tax levy next year, the amount proposed at last week’s public hearing. Mayor Reginald Spinello and the Glen Cove City Council held an initial reading of the proposed budget for 2015, and will take final vote on Tuesday, Oct. 28, at the next city council meeting.

 

“It’s very easy for a first time mayor to raise the taxes and blame it on a prior administration, and that is not what I am doing,” said Mayor Spinello. “In the past three administrations there were budgets with increases of  almost 28 percent to down to 12 percent, but it’s a different time now...I think that the residents are certainly going to feel relief. I put together a budget...that I believe is fair and reasonable and a good budget.”

Richie Cannata may be best known for his song credits but his name will become a part of history this week. Cannata, a 28-year resident and business owner of Glen Cove, will be inducted into the Long Island Music Hall of Fame on Thursday, Oct. 23 at The Paramount in Huntington.

 

As a member of the Billy Joel Band, the saxophone player was propelled to fame in 1975 when he joined the band and played on songs including “New York State of Mind” and “Scenes from an Italian Restaurant.”
