Division Wins Team Counties

South Levittown Lanes congratulates Division High School on its Nassau County Team Championship win. Division dominated all day behind a total team effort from Junior Brasino, Nate Smith, John Licht, Chris Reilly and Brandon Soedarmasto. Game 3 Division shot 1,189 behind Soedarmasto’s 289 game. 

Congratulations to Megan Wing and Kerri Delisi for making the County All-Star team. Wing was as steady as ever in her march to the States as Delisi posted a 701 series for her final three games to clinch a spot in the Top 6. The final girl’s spot wasn’t that easy to seize as a roll off was needed to fill the team. The roll off was the first ever during the counties. The state tournament will be held March 2-3 at Strike and Spare Lanes in Syracuse. 

News

When the Pubic Service Enterprise Group (PSEG) took over Long Island power operations in January of 2014 after what many perceived as one folly after another on the part of the Long Island Power

Authority (LIPA)—culminating, of course, with their chastised performance during Superstorm Sandy in 2012—Long Islanders held their collective breath, hoping that the new guard would be an improvement over the old.

 

However, even the best-run operations need time to dig in their feet and push, and while PSEG does their best to shoulder the great task of providing power to 1.1 million customers in Nassau, Suffolk and

Queens, it stands to reason that New York State would be keeping a watchful eye over them.

U.S. Army Veteran James Boyle, 86, of Levittown served five years of active service, making three trips overseas during both World War II and the Korean War. 

 

Despite never seeing combat, he remembers witnessing first-hand the repercussions of wartime. Serving a non-combative role, working as a radio technician, Boyle still recalls marching with his troop in the aftermath of a battle on the streets of Munich during his first tour of duty.


Sports

Boys and girls with the Levittown Police Athletic League recently visited the New York Equestrian Center in West Hempstead, where they were given a chance to learn more about the sport of horseback riding.

On June 21, Maiden Field in Glen Cove played host to the inaugural Dan Daly Cup High School All-Star Lacrosse game, honoring the legacy of U.S. Marine Sgt. Maj. Dan Daly, a two-time Medal of Honor recipient.

 

Sponsored by the U.S. Marine Corps, in partnership with the Nassau County Lacrosse Coaches Association, the New York Lizards professional lacrosse team, the City of Glen Cove and the Glen Cove School

District, the game featured 50 of Nassau and Suffolk’s elite high school lacrosse players.
