With just a handful of games left, the Hicksville boys lacrosse team finds themselves “in the mix” and a “second-tier team” according to Assistant Coach Tom Kinsella.

They currently stand at 5-5 overall (2-3 in division play) and will certainly have the ability to control their own destiny as the season is dwindling to its finale. They could be in much better position had it not been for an uncanny amount of misfortune. They have lost their five games by a total of six goals. Their largest defeat was 10-8 at the hands of Cold Spring Harbor.

Every once in a while you just tip your cap to the opposition. That was the type of game it was for Hicksville’s JV baseball team in their 3-0 loss to Massapequa. The starting pitcher for the Massapequa Chiefs, Patrick Clyne threw a complete game shutout, while allowing three hits, walking none and striking out four.

Clyne was forced to pitch under duress only one time and that was in the third inning with the game still scoreless. He allowed a two-out single to opposing pitcher Terrence Wong. The next two batters followed with infield hits to load the bases. He was able to make a big pitch, however, to end the threat and keep the Comets off the board.

 

Vito Sciascia: A Volunteer With Lots Of Heart

Thursday, 17 April 2014 09:01

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.

Working All The Anglers

Written by Edith Updike, eupdike@antonnews.com Thursday, 03 April 2014 11:33

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.
