On Sunday, March 21, bikers geared up for the fifth annual Spin marathon to benefit The Ralph Lauren Center for Cancer Care and Prevention.
Thirty cyclists took part in this unique event, which traversed four different fitness centers, including the Sid Jacobson JCC in Roslyn, Equinox Fitness centers in Roslyn and Woodbury and Ellen’s Fitness and Pilates in Plainview. Each center donated their facilities, and the spin and exercise instructors volunteered their services to teach the classes. The enthusiastic and dedicated spinners biked and grooved to the rhythm of invigorating music for 30-minute intervals at each of the four locations. A Pilates class and a stretching segment were interspersed for an additional fitness challenge to the athletes. Participants traveled as a group by bus to each site. Delicious food was served on the bus and local merchants provided raffle prizes.
The championship and victorious team members of the Mayor’s Softball Trophy Tournament were congratulated by Mayor Koblenz and the East Hills Board of Trustees at the Board of Trustees meeting held in March.

They have performed an important role for our village and this year, once again, we had the finest, most competitive games which were close-fought with exciting action up to the last pitch.”

Back in the day, when Sack was a hot shooting forward for Hunter, he so impressed future Fox Sports commentator Charley Rosen that Rosen recently referred to him in one of his columns.
