Written by Richard Hendler Friday, 24 September 2010 00:00

The Great Neck Jaguars have hit the soccer field running this season with a tournament on Labor Day at the Mitchel Field complex. Practicing three to four hours a day, the girls put a lot of hard work and dedication into a great start this fall. Defense was rock solid as ever, and many goals were scored, all evenly distributed among the players. This is truly a credit to the girls’ passing skills and unselfish teamwork and play with smart positioning for goal delivery. With a record of 2 on 2, the Jaguars pulled together a strong finish to their first fall tournament.

As the heat and humidity of this hot summer starts to fade, there is a slight chill in the air. This past week, the Parkwood pool has closed (fortunately, as the final swim was by our canine friends) and the ice has been frozen. In just five short weeks our inaugural high school hockey team will take the ice. The team has been reunited, and they are starting to skate.  Their first official practice at Parkwood will be on Wednesday, Oct. 6 at 7:30. On Oct. 13, we invite everyone down for an open practice session and season kickoff party, 7:30 to 9. This is a chance for the community to get familiar with the Wolverines before the season opens.
