Those with an eye for the chic and stylish are well aware of Ralph Lauren’s famous logo which adorns apparel and fragrance bottles world-wide. The signature emblem is of a polo player on horseback carrying a long handed mallet. In the fashion world, this image has become synonymous with elegance and class. For many others, the actual game of polo still remains somewhat obscure.
One modern day American polo pioneer is Long Island’s own Bob Ceparano. He immediately fell in love with the sport, back in 1986, when asked to play by his father-in-law. Ceparano owns Country Farms Polo and Camp and Equestrian
Center out east on Long Island. He won the bid for the polo grounds at Bethpage State Park in 2011 and Country Farms Polo has been hosting games there ever since.

Local officials pose with participants of the Runners Edge TOBAY Junior Triathlon. Youths ages 8-13 participated in the event in which the children bicycled, swam, and ran their way through the course. Some of the young athletes participated in a training program that began on June 29 and continued on Saturdays throughout the summer, leading up to the event. Also pictured are race directors Jose Lopez (wearing a visor) and Ray Farrell (wearing a baseball cap).
Among the list of top finishers on the Aug. 17th Inaugural Discover Hicksville Run was 19-year-old Megan McCarthy of Levittown who took home the second place award plaque in the women’s 15-19 age group. McCarthy reached the finish line in 41 minutes, 30 seconds, a 8:18 per mile pace.
The Hicksville Chamber of Commerce and the Greater Long Island Running Club collaborated on what turned out to be one of the highlights of the Long Island running and racing summer – the inaugural Discover Hicksville 5 Kilometer Run.
Starting and finishing at Cantiague Park, more than 200 runners enjoyed a great race through the streets of northwest Hicksville, and a terrific post-race Barbeque (hot dogs, hamburgers, beer, ice cream, baked goods courtesy of All Round Foods, and all the trimmings!). Fifty-five youngsters took part in the 1/4 mile Fun Run that preceded the main event.
The Cantiague Park Senior Men’s Golf League had its 9th tournament on Aug. 22. We had 26 golfers. We had 6 golfers who scored under 40, including a brilliant 33 by Bob Ross and Dave Malle. Low overall score was won by Dave Malle with a tiebreaker. John Valsecchi scored a 42, his personal best so far and easily won low overall net.
Please note: There will be no early outs from this point on. Club golfers who do not wait for the 7:30 a.m. start will lose rights to winning any prize money or points. Golfers who must be the first out at 7:30 a.m. will be accommodated. A new rule will also be imposed that you must play your round with club members only or default your score.
