As Syosset Baseball Association (SBA) concludes another successful year of youth baseball in the community, the year-end Annual Awards Dinner at Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury approaches on Nov. 7.
The season started just after last year’s awards dinner where Hall of Fame Pitcher Goose Gossage was the featured guest speaker to over 500 players and parents at The Crest Hollow Country Club. Shortly thereafter, several board members had the privilege of meeting new registrants during in-person registration for the Spring ’09 intramural season. As registration concluded, managers and coaches were put together by the SBA Board of Directors and notified them of their appointments for the upcoming year.
Emotions were at an all-time high when the Jericho Jayhawks seniors took their home field for the last time on Saturday, Oct. 22. One by one each senior, including Seth Fried, Niko Alvarez, Jacob Albinder, Jordan Shenker, Jordan Brett, Maxx Marcus, Gary Gill, Alex Romanelli, Sameep Dhawan, Justin Platz and Matt Klang were congratulated for all their hard work for the Jericho football program.
The Syosset Girls U9 soccer team continued its winning ways by taking first place at the Syosset-Columbus Day tournament.

The defense was led by Kendall Halpern, Nicole Fanelli, and Julia Sobel. Strong offensive play came from Nicole Barkoff, Gabi Wood, Sally Hooey, Stephanie Wiener, Maya Croce, Eli Ruggiero, Carrie Ruggiero. Great goaltending was played by Claire Galante.
Four SYAC Travel Softball teams from Syosset began wrapping up their fall seasons this past weekend, Oct. 22 and 23.
The Syosset Cyclones senior U10 team fell one game short of reaching the championship game this past weekend after completing a successful regular season in the very competitive East Meadow Fall Classic league.
Jericho Varsity football put together four quarters of football which resulted in an impressive win over the Herricks Highlanders 35-7. It was an all-out well-orchestrated 48 minutes of football.
Jericho started the same way they always have done with the defense stopping opposing teams, but this week it was not just in the first half. After the Jayhawks stopped the Highlanders on their first possession, the Hawks came out with a new look on offense, the wishbone. The first touchdown came when Jason Albinder took the handoff from Ian Green for a 4-yard touchdown run.
The 5/6 Braves looked to extend their winning streak in a rare late Saturday night game under the lights at the Farmingdale Knights. For the second week in a row, Braden Sosnik set the tone for the game with a 60-yard touchdown run on the first play of the game. A few plays later, after Gian-Paul Trapeo ran the ball to Farmingdale’s 5-yard line, Matthew Donaldson barreled through the tough Farmingdale defense for his first touchdown of the season. Ethan Hart continued Syosset’s scoring, cutting down the field for a long touchdown run that seemingly secured the win. All was working well for the Braves — they even completed their first pass of the season, with Kyle Joe hitting Nicholas Polizotto for a big gain. However, a resilient Farmingdale team fought back, cutting the Braves’ lead to one touchdown with the clock winding down. With their backs against the wall, the Braves did what they do best: played shutdown defense. Although Farmingdale was able to get within 10 yards of the tying score, the Braves’ defense held tight and kept Farmingdale out of the end zone with a spirited red zone hold. Matthew Donaldson and Braden Sosnik were the hard-hitting anchors of the Braves’ defense, penetrating Farmingdale’s backfield and making open field tackles. Even though the game ended past the players’ bedtimes, the Braves seemed energized by the well-earned three touchdown to touchdown victory (or was it the post-game cookies and donuts?). This win was a total team effort, with quarterback Avery Kurtzer and center Blake Weingarten leading the offense, Jack LaBianca adding gritty runs and linemen Jake Cohen, Kyle Joe, Bryce Newman, Liam Pheffer, Robby Sokolski and GianPaul Trapeo out-muscling Farmingdale’s linemen on both sides of the ball. Syosset begins a three game home stand this Sunday when they host the Franklin Square Warriors. The Braves coaches and players thank their cheerleaders for making the late night trip to Farmingdale to support the team.
The Syosset 7-year-old football team continued on its winning ways beating Farmingdale 6-0 and going to 3-0 on the season. The first half was a defensive battle. Robert Trapeo led a defensive that gave up only one first down in the first half. Trapeo from his cornerback position was all over the field making tackles with help from Andrew Lenneberg from his right defensive end position and Luke Citron playing both Linebacker and Cornerback. Farmingdale kept pounding the ball up the middle and the Braves defensive line of Nicholas Chazotte, Marco Babino, Judson Levi, Joseph Mehran, James Modena, Ron Regev, Jett D’Agostino and left defensive end Ryan Voight held tight. When Farmingdale got through the line the linebacking core of Nicholas Macchia, Luke Citron and Erik Kitogrod would shut them down. After many failed attempts inside, Farmingdale tried running outside to no avail. They were stopped by cornerbacks Robert Trapeo, Luke Citron and Ari Regev.
The Syosset Cyclones U10 Senior girls softball team battled to a 10-10 tie against East Meadow White, the top team in the East Meadow Fall Classic League, on Sunday October 9. The Cyclones are 3-1-2 and play one more game before entering the playoffs on October 23.
The Cyclones turned to a bunt strategy against an overwhelming East Meadow pitcher. Syosset bunted successfully six times, including one from speedy Katie Niki, who turned her a bunt into a home run, thanks to a couple of overthrows by the East Meadow defense.
SYAC Girls Travel Softball’s four teams enjoyed a victorious time on the weekend of Sept. 24-25.
The U10 Cyclones senior team, playing in the East Meadow Fall Classic League, triumphed over Farmingdale by the score of 16-4 on Saturday, Sept. 24. The win was a total team effort, and Nicole Avidon was awarded game MVP for getting two solid hits and driving in four runs, while doing a great job of catching. Caroline DiCostanzo pitched two strong innings to close out the game.
After an opening day victory at home against the Bellmore Braves, the five-and six-year-old Syosset Braves hoped to take the back-end of the home-and-home series on Sunday, Sept. 25. Braden Sosnik opened the scoring, giving Syosset an early one touchdown lead with a long run. However, Bellmore came back on the subsequent possession, knotting the game at one touchdown each.
