Written by Patricia Servidio Friday, 31 August 2012 00:00

Weather reports were not promising on Aug. 3 as forecasters were calling for rain and storms the following day, the date of Mastermind Unit’s Soccer for a Cause Event, which was the fourth year that it benefited the Hicksville-based Michael Magro Foundation.

Terrie Magro was undeterred. Ever cheerful, she was at the Corporal Kevin T. Kolm Memorial Park, bright and early on Saturday, Aug. 4, with a word of encouragement to everyone who showed up to help or practice before the event. As unbearably hot as the day was, Terrie was available everywhere – at the registration table, greeting visitors at the park gates, visiting tents … she was there with a word of kindness for everybody. But that’s who Terrie Magro is; even in the face of adversity, she is cheerful, resourceful and positive. She is an inspiration and she is a hero. And so is her husband, Paul.


LI Lizards Coach Honored As Coach Of The Year

Friday, 24 August 2012 00:00

Major League Lacrosse, the premier professional outdoor lacrosse league, announced Wednesday that Long Island Lizards Coach Joe Spallina has been named as the 2012 Brine MLL Coach of the Year, according to MLL Commissioner David Gross. The award was based on the votes submitted by the head coaches and general manager of each of the League’s eight teams.

“It’s a tremendous honor. This is the highest level of the sport that we all love, so I’m tremendously humbled. Our team dealt with a different kind of hand and dealt with adversity and guys deciding not to play or being injured, but that’s a tribute to the character of guys we have who share the same vision that I had of restructuring and getting to the top level,” said Spallina.


Barclays Tournament Tees Off At Bethpage Black

Written by Ronald Scaglia Friday, 24 August 2012 00:00
It’s about the length of two football fields, but for the world’s best golfers, it is 200 yards that can crush the dreams of winning a prestigious golf tournament, or propel a player into glory with an accurate tee shot and a well-executed putt. It’s the 17th hole of the Bethpage Black, where the Barclays Golf Tournament is being held this week.

The 17th hole is considered to be a signature hole of the course. During the 2002 and 2009 U.S. Open Championships, which were held at Bethpage Black, a loud and enthusiastic crowd helped to put a New York stamp on those tournaments. Barclays tournament directors are hoping for that same excitement as players arrive at the challenging hole.


New York Islanders Hold Tryouts For 2012-13 Ice Girls

Written by Karen Gellender Friday, 17 August 2012 00:00
A blazingly hot August day is a great time to head to Iceworks just to cool off, but the dozens of young women who showed up to the Syosset ice rink on Sunday, Aug. 12 had something more ambitious in mind: showing off their skating skills to win one of just 10 spots on the New York Islanders 2012-13 Ice Girls Team.

With the exception of one lockout season (2004-05), the Ice Girls have been part of the show at Islanders’ games since the 2001-02 season. In addition to presenting the Islanders flag at every game, Ice Girls keep the ice clean during games, and perform an additional routine when the team wins. They also play games with the fans in the stands during time outs and distribute T-shirts. The girls must be over 18 with strong skating skills, capable of skating backwards as well as doing lunges, spirals, t-stops and power crossovers.

Community event to fundraise for foundation and feature 20 teams

On Saturday, Aug. 4, The Michael Magro Foundation will be teaming up with Master Mind Unit for their Fourth Annual Soccer for a Cause at the Kevin Kolm Field in Hicksville.

The tournament, which raised close to $9,000 last year, helped the Michael Magro Foundation to assist pediatric patients and their families with incidentals that we all take for granted, such as petty cash for lunches, dinners, groceries, gas cards and the like. With mounting medical bills, these families have difficulty with meeting simple needs – and this is where the Michael Magro Foundation comes in, as their gift card program has assisted many families with obtaining the basic needs that would otherwise go unmet.
