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 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 seventh- and eighth-grade Glen Cove Junior Lacrosse team continued their winning ways by taking their third straight victory on Sunday, April 22. The boys entered the game on a two-game winning streak as they were set to play Point Lookout/Lido in their home opener.
Glen Cove came out on fire and jumped out to an early lead and they never looked back. Once again Ryan Feldmann, Michael Hatala and Geoffrey Field provided most of the scoring in the 9 – 6 victory. Whether it was shooting or passing the ‘Big Mac Attack’ had their hands in on eight of the nine goals. The hustle of the midfielders and the determination of the defense seems to be the strength of the team with Sean Morrisey, Andrew Patino and Jared Buehre adding some inspiring play. Goaltender Max Sutherland was once again credited for an outstanding game between the pipes.
The Glen Cove Varsity Girls Lacrosse team entered the week with a 1 – 0 league record and ended the week with a 2 – 1 league record. The weather was cool and windy and the varsity team struggled to keep their momentum going against Herricks; they went into halftime ahead but the game got away from them in the second half and they lost 10-12.
