Two goals by John Rojas and one by Nick Pepi gave the Hicksville Outlaws all the goals they needed to win the Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association’s Boys-Under-13 Arch Capital Group Cup. Hicksville defeated another Long Island Junior Soccer League (LIJSL) team, Lynbrook/East Rockaway United, 3-1, in the championship game on June 8 at the Peter Collins Soccer Park in Plainview.
“We were very aggressive, very hungry and we have a great defense,” said Hicksville coach Mario Cirigliano.
Lynbrook/East Rockaway received the Howard Rubenstein Sportsmanship Award as selected by the game officials. Now retired, the remarkable Rubenstein was seemingly involved in every facet of New York soccer for decades and is a member of the Halls of Fame of Eastern New York, the US Amateur Soccer Association and the Long Island Junior Soccer League.

A forecast for steady rain did not deter hundreds of children, students, faculty members and community residents from attending Hicksville’s Homecoming on Sept. 13 at Hicksville High School.
The day was full of festivities for everyone, including the High School’s traditional family fair, which was held across the backfield before the hometown Comets’ game against the
Levittown Macarthur Generals. The fair featured a variety of foods, games, a bouncy house and booths for various school clubs and many other attractions. Faculty members reconnected with their students — both past and present — and there were countless community members and alumni proudly wearing combinations of Hicksville’s orange and black.

At 6 a.m. on a blustery Saturday morning 1,600 people arrived at Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park to participate in the 27th annual Runner’s Edge Tobay triathlon and tri- relay race. The participants were from all over Long Island, some from upstate NY, a few from out of state and were all ages and some even with disabilities but all came with one goal in mind, to finish.
The course starts out as a half mile swim in Oyster Bay Harbor, then a 9.3 mile bike ride through Oyster Bay, Laurel Hollow, and Cove neck which is very hilly but finishes with a 2.9 mile downhill to the finish. Then the riders have one more leg of the race which is 3.2 mile run through Mill Neck and Brookville, up to Planting Fields Arboretum and back down to Roosevelt Park to the finish line.
