Recently, Park Lacrosse – The Revolution, a new travel lacrosse club in New Hyde Park, hosted The Edge, a travel team from Toronto Canada. There was a chill in the air and stands were full with both local parents and a large group of Canadian parents to watch the game. The crowd was not disappointed as the game went to the final minutes with the Canadian team scoring a goal to win the contest by a score of 9-8. This was a great opportunity for both the players and spectators to watch some great lacrosse with an international flair.

The NHPAA 14U Team Intensity were crowned champions of the 2010 HBQVB “Never Give Up” Fall Travel Tournament winning 3 consecutive hard fought games against the Brooklyn Cyclones, Middle Village Explosion, and the Cyclones Silver. The girls were relentless in their pursuit of the grand prize and stood the test, displaying fierce determination against these elite teams comprised of All-Stars from many different towns.
In the first game, New Hyde Park squared off against the Brooklyn Cyclones who had a dominant pitcher who has been clocked at 57mph and is considered by some to be among the top pitchers in the PSAL Brooklyn/Queens High School League. NHP was led by right fielder Kim Spagnuolo who had 6 hits in 10 at bats on the day along with 5RBI and also made several eye popping defensive plays. Spagnuolo was 2-4, 2RBI, 2R, and 2SB against the Cyclones playing her best when it mattered most. Jillian Sakowich (2-4) set the table from the leadoff spot scoring twice and had the game winning hit to right on a clutch two out – two strike single to score Kayla Buff. Kristen Hickey was the winning pitcher throwing an impressive 5 1/3 innings allowing 4 hits while striking out 6. Hickey also went 2-3 with a towering triple to left for 2 RBI in the first inning and later had a sacrifice bunt to 1B in which she alertly stopped and backpedalled towards home before being tagged out which allowed Geena Fornataro to score from third.

Merillon Athletic Association will be making some changes to our Boys Spring Intramural Division alignment for next season. These changes will only affect the Upper Farms, Lower Farms and Instructional Divisions. All other Divisions will remain the same including our Summer and Fall Travel Programs.
After careful consideration of the likely impact of these changes, we have concluded that they will create a stronger development path for your children both on and off the baseball field. Similar to when your child attends school wherein the curriculum changes each year they move up in grade level, we are taking the same approach from a baseball perspective.

New Hyde Park Memorial High School held its Annual Homecoming Day and the day was picture-perfect beautiful, towards the end of the festivities it became cooler, but nonetheless beautiful.
The parade started on Hillside Boulevard, came down New Hyde Park Road and then turned on Lincoln Boulevard and into the school grounds where the floats were parked in the parking lot and the various other participants took their places.
All in all the floats were marvelous and showed that they entailed hours and hours of production and the rest of the homecoming festivities were wonderful including the step team, the Romanettes and each and every routine was the result of hours of long , hard practice. The homecoming was a huge success and it was especially fun to win the homecoming game.
