Despite the high heat and humidity that lingered long into the evening of June 24, an atmosphere of contagious enthusiasm was evident as the 130 members of LI-Kick gathered at the upper fields of Glen Cove’s John Maccarone Memorial Stadium to compete in the playoff games of Long Island’s first and undoubtedly most successful adult kickball league.
LI-Kick is the brainchild of 27-year-old Sal Farruggia who recently moved to Glen Cove and was looking for a way to meet new people in his new community.
On Monday, July 22 at 7:30 a.m., the 25th Annual John Maccarone Hall of Fame Golf Tournament will be held at the Glen Cove Golf Course. All the money raised from this tournament goes to the John Maccarone Scholarship Fund, which was set up in honor of the city’s late recreation supervisor and founder of the Glen Cove Hall of Fame. To date approximately $80,000 has been awarded to outstanding academic-athlete students. This year, as a result of the 2012 golf tournament revenues, six $1,000 scholarships were awarded to outstanding seniors from the Class of 2013.
Hooray! One of the best signs the school year is coming to a close is Field Day, and last month the fields at Friends Academy were swarming with Red, White and Blue as the Middle Schoolers romped through some friendly intramural competition.
Red won the day, but that didn’t dampen the fun for White or Blue. “This is way more fun than sitting inside,” said sixth-grader Nico Santiago. “I’m so pumped. No homework for three months!”
The leading Glen Cove law firm of Mejias, Milgrim & Alvarado has signed on once again to be the presenting sponsor of the 30th annual edition of the Runner’s Edge Long Island Women’s 5 Kilometer Run, which will be held on the roads of Farmingdale on Saturday, July 13.

Congratulations to Maggie Reid and Jeri Cavagnaro, both residents of Locust Valley, who came home with awards from the 22nd annual edition of the David Lerner Associates Long Island Police Appreciation 5 Kilometer Run, which was held in Eisenhower Park on the evening of June 6.
The Glen Cove third- and fourth-graders participated in the PAL LaxFest in Farmingdale and finished up their season by losing a tough one-goal game to Seaford.
It appeared the “Wee Knights” of Glen Cove outplayed Seaford, but they came up just short of victory losing 8 - 7. The effort was certainly there from the Knights who played great defense, came up with ground balls and backed up the shots on goal all game long.
Samantha Nadel of Glen Head competed in the 6K Junior Women’s Race at the 40 IAAF World Cross Country Championships in Bydgoszcz, Poland this spring. In her first international competition, she came in 44 out of 86 participants, with a time of 20:30.
The USA team finished sixth out of 15 teams. She and her teammates qualified to represent the USA in February at the 2013 USA Cross Country Championships.

This spring, she was also inducted into the National Society of Collegiate Scholars.

The Bulls won their second game of the season with a 14-7 effort against the Lugnuts. Ryan Annuziato was 3-for-3 with two homers and five RBI. Matt Babal was also 3-for-3 with two RBI. Gavin Conway was 2-for-3 for the Bulls.The Hot Rods outlasted the Bees, 13-8, with the two teams combining for 35 hits, including seven extra-base hits.
The Glen Cove Two Knights continued their lacrosse season by travelling to play a tough Port Washington Blue team on Sunday, June 2. This would be the last official game of the PAL program and the Knights were hungry to show the skills that they’ve developed over the six-game season.
