The Cantiague Park Senior Men’s Golf League had its 9th tournament on Aug. 22. We had 26 golfers. We had 6 golfers who scored under 40, including a brilliant 33 by Bob Ross and Dave Malle. Low overall score was won by Dave Malle with a tiebreaker. John Valsecchi scored a 42, his personal best so far and easily won low overall net.
Please note: There will be no early outs from this point on. Club golfers who do not wait for the 7:30 a.m. start will lose rights to winning any prize money or points. Golfers who must be the first out at 7:30 a.m. will be accommodated. A new rule will also be imposed that you must play your round with club members only or default your score.

Old classmates reignited friendships and shared memories of their teenage years as the Hicksville High School Class of 1964 came together recently to celebrate their 50th reunion at the Holiday Inn in Plainview.
Among the attendees was Bob Cheeseman who met his wife, Lorraine (Kirwan) in middle school. They were serious throughout high school and married soon after. Bob said, “I enlisted in high school and went into the Air Force. I did 30 years active Air Force and another 15 after that. I retired in 2010 as a Brigadier General. After I retired, my wife received a certificate from the Governor of Texas and was designated a Yellow Rose of Texas.”

It seemed to happen in an instant.
Hicksville forward Michael Osmundsen was touching the ball past Kellenburg goalkeeper Jack Abuin to slot the ball into an empty net to score the lone goal in the non-league 1-0 victory over the Firebirds.
It’s nothing short of what Comets boys soccer head coach Scott Starkey would expect. He described his forward as “very explosive, fast and he’s not just fast — he’s tenacious.”
