Boys Farms Division

Dr. Zatz’s Mighty Molars and Park Funeral Home had an old fashioned pitchers’ duel on Monday, May 20. The game went to the fourth inning without a run scored, when the Mighty Molar’s Joshua Park, cracked a double up the middle, followed by a long triple to left center by Steven Niles who drove in the only run of the game.

 

The May 23 matchup of Thomas Dalton Funeral Home and Dr. Zatz’s Mighty Molars, turned into a slug fest. Both teams had their bats on go, highlighted by multiple hit games by Alec Guglielmo, Matty Zatz, Joe Fabio, Eric Destabler and Ian Camaione. The Mighty Molars got some strong pitching from Jake Binaso to stem the tide, and hold Thomas Dalton scoreless in the third. There were also several sparkling fielding plays by the two teams; John Cutter caught an inning ending fly ball, and Ian Camaione threw a bullet from deep third to home to end another rally by the Mighty Molars. 

 

Both teams are poised to make a big run in the playoffs.


News

15 Below, an alternative rock band composed of Sewanhaka High School students, rocked the William Gill Theatre in New Hyde Park Village Hall on Wednesday, July 23. The band had the crowd tossing up beach balls to energetic beats and swaying their iPhones along to slower tunes. 

 

“They were very good tonight,” said Darren Derick Polanco. “I always come to their shows.”

New Hyde Park Village trustee Donald Barbieri contends helicopters are still flying right over New Hyde Park and other residential parts of the north shore, harming citizens and the town with excessive and unlawful aircraft noise. In spite of what federal law says and in spite of what a federal court says, the noise levels are still an issue.

 

Barbieri drafted a letter to the Federal Aviation Administration, apprising the entity of New Hyde Park’s situation. The FAA did not return calls for comment.


Sports

 Students at Charles Water Karate & Fitness, located at 122 Hillside Avenue in Williston Park recently received belt promotions after successfully completing a series of extensive exams.

 

“Our goal at Charles Water Karate & Fitness is to facilitate mental growth enabling our students to reach their highest potential as human beings,” says Charles Water, owner and director of the school.

“Our studio teaches students how to defend themselves responsibly while instilling self-confidence, self-discipline and respect for others.”

Runners and walkers from New Hyde Park are invited to join in the fun on one of the most unusual 5K courses on Long Island at the Saturday, Aug. 9 Sands Point Sprint.

 

 The run presents the Long Island running community with an opportunity to traverse a unique combination of paved paths and runner-friendly woodland trails at the Sands Point Preserve. 

 

The August 2013 edition of the Sands Point Sprint attracted 313 finishers, including top New Hyde Park finishers Michael Ringel, who scored first in the 11-14 age group and Dave Frisone, who earned first place honors in the 65-69 age group. Race organizers are looking for both Ringel and Frisone, and a host of other New Hyde Park runners, to be back next week.
