Skills, Drills And Practice = Wins For SYAC Travel Softball

Skills clinics, drills and lots of practices are paying off for the three Syosset Cyclones teams in the Travel Division of SYAC Girls Softball.

The U10 Cyclones came up big in competition against the Bellmore Blue Fire, with 12-2 and 19-1 victories on Sunday, Sept. 30. The Cyclones had their hitting shoes on as they pounded out big home runs and were speedy on the basepaths. The team is 6-0 for the season and leading the U10 division of the East Meadow Fall Classic.

The U9 squad lost a close one to the Long Island Hellcats in Oyster Bay. The Cyclones out-hit their competition and made the game exciting, as the girls showed improvement in both pitching and batting. The team is 2-2 in the Rocky Pacent League.

The U12 squad, which is 4-2 for the season, had a bye this past week. In addition to the travel program, SYAC Girls Softball hosts a spring community softball program for girls. For more information: www.SYACGS.org.

Eight students from Jericho High School, the largest number of students from any school on Long Island this year, are among the 300 semifinalists picked from 1,800 entrants nationally and overseas in the annual Intel Science Talent Search.

Brookville’s Green Vale School students were featured in the September/October 2013 issue of Sport Rocketry, the official journal of the National Association of Rocketry.

The seventh-grade students competed nationally at the Team America Rocketry Challenge (TARC) last May in Virginia and were the youngest rocket scientists competing. They were also the only team from Long Island that qualified to enter the competition and one of only two teams from New York State.
