Islanders Hold Ice Girls Tryouts At Iceworks For Coming Season

Written by Karen Gellender Friday, 07 September 2012 00:00

Needed: Skating skills and a winning personality

A blazingly hot summer day is a great time to head to Iceworks just to cool off, but the dozens of young women who showed up to the Syosset ice rink last month had something more ambitious in mind: showing off their skating skills to win one of just 10 spots on the New York Islanders 2012-13 Ice Girls Team.

With the exception of one lockout season (2004-05), the Ice Girls have been part of the show at Islanders’ games since the 2001-02 season. In addition to presenting the Islanders flag at every game, Ice Girls keep the ice clean during games, and perform an additional routine when the team wins. They also play games with the fans in the stands during time outs and distribute T-shirts. The girls must be over 18 with strong skating skills, capable of skating backwards as well as doing lunges, spirals, t-stops and power crossovers.

Barclays Tournament Tees Off At Bethpage Black

Written by Ronald Scaglia Friday, 24 August 2012 00:00
It’s about the length of two football fields, but for the world’s best golfers, it is 200 yards that can crush the dreams of winning a prestigious golf tournament, or propel a player into glory with an accurate tee shot and a well-executed putt. It’s the 17th hole of the Bethpage Black, where the Barclays Golf Tournament is being held this week.

The 17th hole is considered to be a signature hole of the course. During the 2002 and 2009 U.S. Open Championships, which were held at Bethpage Black, a loud and enthusiastic crowd helped to put a New York stamp on those tournaments. Barclays tournament directors are hoping for that same excitement as players arrive at the challenging hole.


Beefing Up The Back End With A Power Play QB

Isles swap ’13 third-rounder for Lubomir Visnovsky; Fourth pick yields blue-chip D-man Griffin Reinhart

Recently, Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum was the site of the Islanders’ 12th annual Draft Party. Calling the event festive was an understatement as the old barn had the aura of a carnival right down to the line of kids waiting to use the myriad of bounce houses, the multigenerational families wandering around clad in blue and orange and even a Ferris wheel whose passenger cars were festooned with the team’s logo.

After the Edmonton Oilers took Russian junior right wing phenom Nail Yakupov with the overall first pick, speculation was rampant as to who the Isles would take with the fourth pick. Forty-year-old father and fan, Jeff, hoped his Islanders would go in more for more scoring punch to go along with John Tavares and Matt Moulson.


More Olympic Glory For Sue Bird

Third consecutive gold medal performance for Syosset native

The recently completed London 2012 Summer Olympics brought more basketball glory for Syosset native Sue Bird. Not only was she a member of the gold medal-winning women’s basketball squad, she also served as team captain, leading the United States to its fifth gold medal in Olympic play.

The 86-50 win over France in the championship game gave Bird her third consecutive gold medal as she was also on the winning U.S. squads at the 2004 Olympics in Athens and the 2008 games in Beijing. Published reports hold out the possibility that Bird may compete, Michael Phelps-style, in her fourth Olympics in the 2016 games in Rio de Janerio. During the London games, Bird provided steady leadership for the talent-laden U.S. squad, combining her talents as passer, scorer and floor leader. Bird’s finest moment in this year’s games may have come in a semifinal game against perennial powerhouse, Australia, one where the U.S. squad faced an uncustomary deficit at halftime. In her role as team captain, Bird took charge, giving a halftime pep talk to her teammates, which helped to inspire them to an 86-73 win over the talented Australian team.
