The scholarship in Jim Amen’s name is given each year on the school’s awards night to a deserving Division Avenue High School athlete who has demonstrated excellence not only on the field, but off the field as well.
Last year the Girls’ Varsity Soccer Team at Division Avenue High School captured the Conference One Championship and was voted the best regular season team in Nassau County by the Nassau County Coaches Association. With many key players lost to graduation, it was unsure where the Lady Dragons would be placed for the current season. However after assessing the returning talent it was decided the Blue Dragons could compete and hold their own in the top ability group in the county.
It was a great day of fun and community pride as family, staff and friends gathered for homecoming on the grounds of Division Avenue High School (DAHS). The kickoff to the weekend commenced with a pep rally in the gymnasium, where students proudly wore their school colors and cheered for their athletes.
The DAHS marching band led the parade, followed by the kickline team, cheerleaders, Wisdom Avenue’s marching band, homecoming king and queen candidates and students who accompanied colorful and creatively themed class banners. Prior to the start of the game, senior football players, cheerleaders and kickline team and marching band members were honored alongside their parents for having dedicated many hours on and off the field. Members of the board of education, high school administrators, student council members and coaching staff were also on hand to participate in a ribbon-cutting ceremony with Legislator Dennis Dunne (Class of 1968), who donated a new scoreboard for the athletic field.
The Levittown Cardinals 14U won two championships in three weeks in their divisions in the NCYAA Summer League 2012 and in the NJBL Labor Day Weekend Tournament 2012.

The team then took a final score of 8-2 to win the NJBL Labor Day Weekend Tournament 2012 against the LI Bandits.

The Levittown Swimming Association (LSA) wrapped up its 2012 season, with Slate Lane pool returning as champions. In an exciting turn, the Bluegrass team etched out a second place finish over Acorn by a single point, proving that every event matters.
“This season was a tremendous success,” said LSA President Ed Taylor. “The season went off remarkably well.” LSA has been keeping Levittown residents from eight to 18 active each summer for more than 50 years. “I think all of our 450 swimmers certainly had a fun season,” said LSA Vice President Steven Dalton.
Freshman midfielder J.T. Famularo of Levittown scored the lone goal of the game in the 109th minute to give the Farmingdale State men’s soccer team a double-overtime victory over the Potsdam State Bears. The Rams improved to 1-4 overall, while the Bears dropped to 2-2.
Potsdam controlled the first half with an 8-4 shot advantage, while Farmingdale controlled the second half with the 8-4 shot advantage, forcing sudden death overtime period.
