The Varsity Girls Softball team at Portledge School hosted its first home game ever on its new field on April 3. The Portledge girls softball program, inspired by student interest and enthusiasm, began in 2009 and after only two years of away games the momentum was there to create a field on campus.
Another wet week ensued with various postponements. Here comes though some highlights from the last week.
Michael Useda had three hits as Ian Cukro (scored a run) and Ryan McCormick had two hits apiece in the Storm’s 10-5 loss at the hands of the Bats. The Storm then lost to the Sea Dogs, 18-11, despite timely hitting from Evan Stogner (two doubles); Michael Useda (double and one hit) and Rodni Leftwich (double and hit)...The Sea Dogs themselves lost to the Hooks, 16-8. The Sea Dogs scored six runs in the sixth inning led by Max Duchnal, Ryan Serrano and Chris Gielbeda, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the Hooks’ huge lead. The Sea Dogs’ Coloseno Bianco was a force behind the plate as Zach Gotterbarn and Genalie Prezeali were kept busy on the leftside of the outfield. Devin Maisunet, Anthony DiLeo, Joey Rant all went four-for-four with a combined six RBI in the team’s 10-5 win against the Storm. The Sea Dog outfield of Troy Wright, Jake Casale, Matt Bailey and Noah Capps anchored the defense.
The second-grade Glen Cove Junior Lacrosse “Knights” kicked off the annual Glen Cove Lacrosse Day on Saturday, May 12, with an exciting game against an experienced squad from Syosset. The Glen Cove players continued to show great effort and determination, even after they were trailing, throughout the game. Mike Mattern showed a lot of courage when he stepped in as goalkeeper for the first time this season. He made several great saves, never shying away from the fast hard ball that was thrown at him. Ryan Houghton and Micah Stone each scored their first goal of the season with strong runs to the cage. Matthew Small was aggressive and won a number of face-offs for the team and Charlie Benazzi had an impressive breakaway play. The young Knights are improving with each and every game.
More than 300 players, coaches and parents attended Grenville Baker Boys & Girls Club Second Annual Basketball Awards Ceremony held recently at the club. The banquet highlighted the talented kids, and recognized their achievements throughout the 2012 basketball season.
Going into their night game, on a two-game winning streak, the Glen Cove Girls Varsity Lacrosse team took on Roslyn and won 11 -10. The girls were fired up and ready to go.
The scoring trio of Alex Gerin, Arianna Cavalone, and Gabby Morrocu combined for 10 of the eventual 11 goals, with valuable passing from Tori Durso and Megan O’Connell.
“I was born with a form of the birth defect Spina Bifida that could have caused me to be paralyzed,” he said. “Thanks to microsurgery on my spinal cord, I have had no adverse effects.”
Patrick Lynn, pitcher for the NSHS Vikings varsity baseball team, pitched a no-hitter at a game against West Hempstead. He had 10 strikeouts and two walks. The last time a no-hitter was pitched was in 2004.
This week commences with another exciting season of Speedy’s Corner, summarizing results of the Glen Cove Junior Baseball/Softball League. However, before I begin, I need to mention a few of my heartfelt feelings for an amazing man, the late Rob Kormoski. Speedy would dare say that no one had ever known a more hardworking volunteer on our local baseball/softball fields than Rob. Over the last several years, Rob was a familiar sight on his cart running between games making sure every little nuance was taken care of, every issue resolved. It is only fitting that the league be renamed after him and his name memorialized on his golf cart. Rob would have it no other way. I also know that the Junior Baseball/Softball board of directors will do everything in its power to continue the hard work Rob performed in his 19 years of volunteer service. God speed, my friend. You’ve earned it!
The St. Boniface Sixth-Grade Girls Basketball team won the CYO Division A Championship after a strong season. The girls fought hard in the final against St. Hugh of Huntington and ultimately won the title by a score of 28-24. This win led to the opportunity to play in the CYO Classic against the Brooklyn/Queens Class A Champion. St. Boniface was, again, victorious winning by an 11-point margin.
The Glen Cove Junior Baseball and Softball League held their annual parade in Glen Cove on a hot and sunny Saturday, and then held their opening day ceremony. The Junior Baseball and Softball League board of directors voted to rename the league after Robin Kormoski, so it will now be known as the Robin “Rob” Kormoski Junior Baseball and Softball League of Glen Cove.
