That familiar crack of the bat was back as several dozen teams from SYAC Girls Softball recently took to the athletic fields to begin practices for the spring season. Each spring, hundreds of girls from Syosset, Woodbury and Jericho in grades K through 9 play SYAC softball. SYAC has four divisions: Instructional (grades K-1), Pony (2-3), Junior (4-5), and Senior (6-9).
The season begins on April 23 and extends to playoffs in early June. Teams hold practices before the season begins, and once the season starts, there are several games a week. Games are held on weekday evenings.
The annual SYAC Girls Softball Skills Clinic will be held Saturday, April 21 at Syosset-Woodbury Park. The clinic is free to all girls registered to play SYAC.
The SYAC Skills Clinic will be conducted by U18 players on the Long Island Thunderbolts Softball Club, a tournament travel organization. Coaches Carmine Mazzaro and Peter Janowsky will instruct the Thunderbolts players, who will teach hitting skills with older players and basic skills with younger players.

A Syosset surgeon has become the first in the United States to present findings from a clinical trial on a combined bariatric approach to enhance weight loss that involves implanting a Lap Band and performing surgery on the stomach.
Plication, or surgery to fold the outer curve of the stomach into a pleat, is new in its application to bariatric surgeries. For decades, the procedure was used to treat perforated ulcers or stomach trauma.
