The Wolves are howling now! Our own Great Neck Wolverines ice hockey team grabbed a share of first place in their spring tune-up league last Saturday night. They beat the previously unbeaten Rangers by a score of 5-3. Both teams are now tied for 1st place with a 3-1 record in a 10 team conference. The win was the Wolverines third consecutive victory after dropping their opener.
It’s hard to believe that this group of kids took the ice as a team just four short weeks ago. At that time, there was a lot of uncertainty surrounding the team as it got started. This collection of Great Neck High School hockey players had never played together as a team. They have grown together faster than anyone could have predicted.
With the advent of Spring our local little league baseball players return to their happy place upon the fields of the Great Neck Park District. This season finds our fourth and fifth graders playing in a four team division consisting of the Cardinals, Dodgers, Marlins and Nationals- each team outfitted with their Major League Baseball caps and matching shirts.
Early season action has seen the Marlins led by the steady hitting of Marc Zalta and Perry Choo. The Dodgers have shown life with the strong bat of Noah Ondris and the pitching of Oliver Besman. The Cardinals are being paced by the overall play of Max Chafiian and Brad Fritzhand while the Nationals have gotten strong hitting and pitching from Mitchell Hutt and Dylan Damaghi.
On Saturday, April 24, The Great Neck Wolverines ice hockey team picked up right where they left off in game one. After mounting a strong comeback in the third period of game one, they started off their second game with a strong first period taking a quick 4-0 lead. They played with energy and passion throughout the game on route to a commanding 9-3 win.
The Wolverines continue to utilize the spring league as a building block for the competition in the Long Island High School Hockey League of Nassau County in the fall of 2010. The team is comprised of 17 Great Neck high school students. They are a special group of kids that would not take no for an answer when told there would not be a high school team. They have built this program through hard work and dedication. The team has six defenseman, nine forwards and two goalies.
Runners, walkers and wheelchair athletes from all over Long Island are invited to join the investment firm of David Lerner Associates and the Greater Long Island Running Club for the 19th annual David Lerner Associates Long Island Police Appreciation 5 Kilometer Run, to be held on Thursday evening, June 10, at Eisenhower Park in East Meadow.
The entire net proceeds will once again be turned over to the special Police Crisis Fund that has been established to aid Nassau and Suffolk County law enforcement officers and their families in time of emergency. In the 19 years of its existence, the Fund has distributed over $250,000 to local police officers and their families. In 2008, the Fund was privileged to be able to make a $25,000 donation to Nassau County Police Officer Kevin Baribault, who suffered multiple injuries when he was struck by a drunk driver’s vehicle on the Long Island Expressway. Thanks to David Lerner Associates and the Long Island Running Community, the money was there to help Officer Baribault and his family in their time of need, and the Race Committee is hopeful that Officer Baribault will be on hand to serve as the Official Starter of the 2010 Run.
