LI-Kick, the co-ed adult kickball league based in Glen Cove, was formed a little over one year ago and is already making a name for itself on the competitive kickball circuit. On Saturday, July 12, the league sent two teams to McCarren Park in Greenpoint to compete in a national kickball competition sponsored by Brooklyn Kickball. Teams came from as far away as Toronto, Portland and Atlanta. LI-
Kick was the only league from Long Island to participate.

Glen Cove High School recently held its first-ever Athletics Wall of Fame Induction ceremony in the school’s athletic wing.
Wall of Fame inductees are varsity players who have been selected as All-County in their respective sport. This year, 12 Glen Cove students were named All-County, earning themselves an eight-by-ten photograph mounted and framed on the storied wall near the gymnasium. The Wall of Fame dates back to its first inductee in 1974.

Gregory Puskuldjian completed his four years at Adelphi University and graduated this spring with a degree in business and an incredible lacrosse career as a Faceoff Man playing for the Adelphi Panthers.
Puskuldjian joined Adelphi after graduation from North Shore High School, looking for an opportunity for a good education but to also to play lacrosse. Puskuldjian dabbled in many sports while he was younger and many remember him as a hockey and soccer player, but he always loved lacrosse.
On Saturday, June 21, Glen Cove High School’s Maiden Field hosted the inaugural Dan Daly Cup High School All-Star Lacrosse game, honoring the legacy of U.S. Marine Sgt. Maj. Dan Daly, a two-time Medal of Honor recipient.
LI-Kick, Glen Cove’s co-ed adult kickball league, continues to grow in popularity. Now in its second year, the league, which partners with the City of Glen Cove Department of Parks and Recreation, has 224
members with two separate leagues, one playing on Tuesday evenings, the other on Thursday evenings. Nearly 60 percent of the players are returning kickballers, some traveling from as far away as Long Beach and Centereach, despite opportunities to join leagues closer to their homes. The youngest player is 21; the oldest is 58.
The popularity of the league does not surprise its founder, Glen Cove resident Sal Farruggia.
“We’re a competitive league, with playoffs and trophies,” he said, “but we also have a recreational component.”
The final week of the season took place at Farmingdale College for the annual Nassau County PAL Laxfest where the always improving first- and second-grade Two Knights faced a tough challenger in Huntington Station on the Farmingdale turf, the main stage at the tournament. With rookie Vincent Pascucci defending the goal for the very first time, he managed several saves before Huntington got on the board with the first goal of the game. That was enough to spark defenseman Jack Spoto, who shortly after scoped up a loose ball and went coast to coast to even the score at 1.
The Long Island youth girls’ lacrosse community is surely talking about them and the incredible season they had. All of their expectations were exceeded as they played in PAL’s Div. 1 in Nassau/Suffolk Counties, which is the most competitive division in the league. The Lady Vikings played seven teams this spring. These team’s varsity programs will end up in the Top 50 Girls Lacrosse Programs in the nation in 2014.
The junior LAXers were back at it last Sunday with the third- and fourth-graders taking it to the “Pit” in the first game of a home double header. There was no lag in their step after a week off as they jumped all over visiting West Islip and quickly found themselves with a four goal lead.
After that, they began to settle it down and get everyone involved as they needed to complete three passes before going to the goal, per the PAL rules. This changed the tempo of the game but did not hold back the spirits of these young lacrosse players. The excitement could not be contained as rookie third-grader Matt Nystrom recorded his first, but not last, career goal. Also tallying in the 6 – 2 victory were Micah Stone, Charlie Benazzi, Ryan Houghton, Eamon Doyle and Lukasz Dubicki. A goalie trio of Tyler Shea, Christian Maiorano and Eamon Doyle manned the pipes and totaled 20 saves in the win.
