Vito Sciascia was recently named Hicksville Soccer Club’s Volunteer of the Year at the 2014 Long Island Junior Soccer League 2014 Kick-off Convention.
Sciascia started coaching travel soccer in 1998 for a boys team, the Flash, who later changed their names to the Muddogs. He could always be found at various sporting fields trying to recruit new soccer players. He would make each of these boys feel important and there was always room for another player. He tried to never turn a child away and when other coaches were having trouble with a boy he would take them on his team, no one was ever too much for him. Sciascia found the good in all those boys and they in return respected him. He took them to many tournaments and solicited enough sponsorship so that it was never a financial burden on their families.

Life’s challenges are not supposed to paralyze you. They are supposed to help you discover who you are.
As a legal matter, Long Islanders can enjoy trout fishing year-round, but the harsh conditions of the past few months have not been friendly to recreational fishing, so there was probably some pent-up demand released on April 1, for the official state-wide opening of trout season.
According to a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service survey, in 2011, New York State was second in the nation in total spending on fishing-related items, and remains a clear leader in paid angler licenses, with nearly one million purchased.
The Hicksville varsity softball team is coming off a strong season after defeating Long Beach in the playoffs, and Head Coach Rich Hinnerschietz is confident about his team building on that success. He does not care that the current squad will only feature five returning players.

The Comets will have the challenge of replacing All-State pitcher/shotstop Ron Bauer who won six games on the mound, and is now playing for Division-II Molloy.
The men’s basketball coaches in the East Coast Conference recently selected Hicksville’s John Petrucelli as the 2013-14 East Coast Conference Player of the Year.
Petrucelli, a four-time All-Conference recipient, takes home the conference’s top honor in his senior season. In 28 games, Petrucelli has poured in a conference leading 23.7 points per game on 47.5 percent shooting. His scoring prowess, which also currently ranks seventh in all of Division II, led to him eclipsing the Molloy program record for points earlier this season. Petrucelli does much more than score for the Lions, stuffing the stat sheet in numerous categories. He ranks in the top ten in the conference in nine different categories including minutes per game (36.1), rebounds (208), and steals (103). His steals total and steals per game number (3.68) are tops in all of Division II.

Hicksville’s Matthew Sloan faced off against the best young soccer players in the world recently, as he traveled to Turkey with the Olympic Developmental Program.
The Hicksville High School freshman started playing soccer when he was three and advanced his game to a more competitive level at age 10, when he was chosen to play with the Long Island Rough Riders. Sloan plays other sports and is on the boys basketball team, but says that he loves soccer because of the fast pace, and because of the coaches who have had a great influence on him throughout his training.
