In a Nassau Conference 1 football game played at the Massapequa High School field Oct. 30 arch rivals Massapequa Chiefs and the Farmingdale Dalers played a hard fought game won by the Dalers 35-21.

He now has 30 career touchdowns, a mark that broke the old Farmingdale record of 28 held by Jerome Williams. Massapequa has a 4-4 record, while Farmingdale goes to 6-2.

When James and Dolores Baldinger relocated their family from Pennsylvania to Massapequa, there was no way of knowing that their young children would be accomplished professionals in their chosen fields. When one of their sons, Gary, entered the Massapequa schools at the age of 12, he immediately got involved with sports. By the time he entered Massapequa High School, Gary was already on top of his game. Basketball, lacrosse and football were to be the beginning of a great sports career. Gary told me that he received an enormous amount of encouragement from his father and Bill Cutillo, his MHS coach, to pursue his dream of becoming a professional athlete.
In 1988, Massapequa native Carolann Habeeb commuted from her academic and athletic duties at St. John’s University in Queens back to her hometown to coach the Massapequa High School girls’ volleyball team. The program, as Ms. Habeeb admits, was “not competitive.” But she would soon change that. Twenty-two years later, Ms. Habeeb has built the volleyball program into a Nassau County dynasty. The Lady Chiefs have won 10 consecutive Conference AA-I titles, with both Long Island and New York State titles in 2007.
