While the future of the New York Islanders’ franchise might be on thin ice, it was business as usual for head coach Jack Capuano at the team’s annual prospects mini-camp at the Nassau Coliseum on July 14.
Nassau County residents, who will have the chance to approve a $400 million bond on Aug. 1 to finance a new arena for the team, could possibly help remedy some of the uncertainty. Team owner Charles Wang publicly stated it’s unlikely the Islanders will remain in Uniondale beyond 2015 – when the current building lease expires – if a new arena isn’t approved.
The Hicksville Baseball Association Senior League Championship was won by the Blue Claws, a team everyone said could never compete with The Iron Birds.
The sun was shinning and it seemed like it was going to be a great day. Then the humidity hit us. Some men were able to play through it but many men started to slow down as they progressed through the round, as shown by the scores. We had 39 men but only 20 pars and Pete Guerra got four of them. There was one birdie by Dave Malle on the par 3, 173-yard, 3rd hole. Seven men shot under par and three shot even par for the round. The next tournament on July 21 will be the second round in our match play tournament. As soon as you get to the park, find out who you will be playing against and sign in together. You must play in the same foursome as your opponent.
On April 12, after just one practice, HBA’s 7/8-year-old Rangers baseball team took to the field for their first game of the season.
Unfortunately their first game was not victorious and neither were the next three, but after weeks of practicing, this once losing team turned their season around and won their first game on April 27 and went on to win the next 13 out of 14 games of the season. With three dominating pitchers in Jordan Ramlogan, Timmy Malony and Jeromy Poveda and two strong catchers in Daniel O’Connell and Jeffery Schlick, runs against and stolen bases were held to a minimum.

The 8-year-old Hicksville Hurricanes played in their first tournament together over Memorial Day weekend. They headed out to Connetquot to compete with some of the best 8-year-old teams in the area. The competition came from Queens, Nassau and Suffolk. After losing the first two games to the L.I. Sharks from Suffolk and the HBQVC Orioles from Queens, they regrouped and came out strong in the third game winning 14-4 over the L.I. Inferno. All the boys and coaches want to thank the great Hicksville Baseball Association for all the support they have given them.
After nearly a decade as a team that wouldn’t split up, the Hicksville Rising Stars (U-19) played their final game on Sunday, June 12. Many of the girls started together in Hicksville’s Giant Squirt League when they were 6 years old with Coach Steve Bonczyk.
Again we had near perfect weather for golf on June 2. It got a little humid as we played but it was a great day. A total of 38 men played and we had 36 pars and two birdies. They both came on the par 3, 173 yards, 2nd hole. The expert golfers were Sevald Knudsen and Bob Ross. Ray Onorato got five pars in his round. Nine men shot under par and three more shot even par for the round. The next tournament on July 7 will be the first round in our match play tournament. As soon as you get to the park, find out who you will be playing against and sign in together. You must play in the same foursome as your opponent.

Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano and Acting Police Commissioner Thomas C. Krumpter would like to remind county residents that water safety is something all parents should be aware of. Drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional injury related death among children ages 1-14. It can happen very quickly and in less than 1 inch (2.5 centimeters) of water, so filled bathtubs, swimming pools, wading pools, hot tubs, and even buckets of water and sinks can be dangerous.
