The Syosset Spartans Travel Lacrosse Teams played in the Tri-State National Lacrosse Tournament in Princeton, New Jersey on July 8-10. This three-day lacrosse tournament attracts teams from all over the country, including Massachusetts, Ohio, Maryland, Michigan, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Colorado and many other states. With over 75 players and nearly 100 parents from Syosset in attendance, it was a great community event. Congratulations go out to all of the players for their great play in the tournament.
Ben Rosen’s road to the NHL may not be complete, but he’s certainly getting there. The longtime Syosset resident participated in this summer’s edition of the New York Islanders mini-camp, held at Nassau Coliseum from July 12-16.
The mini-camp featured a mix of recent Islander draft picks and undrafted invitees. Rosen, who participated in last year’s camp, was invited after a successful sophomore season with the Boston University Huskies.
Congratulations go out to Plainview’s own Shari Klarfeld, who scored as the first woman overall in the 8th annual Heart and Sole 5 Kilometer Run through the streets of Plainview on Sunday, July 10.
Klarfeld crossed the finish line at the Plainview-Old Bethpage Middle School in 18 minutes, 57 seconds, a pace of 6:07 per mile that brought her to the finish 41 seconds in front of women’s runner-up Stepanie Gerland of Garden City. Plainview’s Jessica Petrina was the fourth woman overall in 20:16. Tom Glenn of Levittown was the first finisher overall in 17:00.

On Sunday morning, July 10, a very special event will take place on the roads of Plainview: the 8th annual Heart and Sole 5 Kilometer Run. Host Greater Long Island Running Club (GLIRC) is asking for the cooperation of local residents to help make the run successful and safe.
The club will be staging the run on behalf of the Plainview and Syosset Hospitals of North Shore - Long Island Jewish Health System, with the proceeds earmarked to support the Plainview/Syosset Scholarship Fund for local students considering a career in a medically related field and to support community services at Plainview and Syosset Hospitals to better serve patients.

Jericho resident Keith Adwar got an unwelcome gift on his 44th birthday - he was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. The diagnosis changed his life in many ways. He began to exercise more frequently, and he developed a passion for biking. In an effort to assist the American Diabetes Association with its mission to cure Diabetes, Adwar signed up to ride in the American Diabetes Association’s annual Tour De Cure in Riverhead on June 11. He encouraged his friends and family to join him, and Team Adwar was created.
