On Monday, Nov. 7, the Jericho Athletic Association celebrated the close of another successful baseball/softball program, with the JAA’s Annual Baseball Dinner held at the Ritz Club in Syosset.
This year, approximately 300 boys and 130 girls participated in these baseball/softball programs. Both boys and girls enjoyed free clinics offered by the JAA using professional organizations, a full slate of games and, once again, both baseball and softball players enjoyed games at home, as well as against neighboring towns. The away games provided the boys and girls in the program an intramural experience with a travel feel. The 9-and 10-year-old and 11/12 year-old boys’ teams met Syosset Baseball in the Third Annual Turnpike Challenge over Memorial Day weekend, and the children who participated were left with memories that will last a lifetime.
The KappaSigma fraternity of Adelphi University hosted the Nassau County PAL Special Needs Unit’s Flag Football team for a game on Monday night, November 28. It was the last game of the fall season for the PAL team.

The game was a seesaw battle and was tied at 19-all when, with only 56 seconds left, a long run off a handoff put the PAL team up by 6.

On Oct. 29, the Syosset-Woodbury Braves Travel Baseball Team took the field against the Long Island Sharks.
Joe C. took the ball for the Syosset-Woodbury Braves and gave attendees three perfect innings. The Braves jumped to an early 8-1 lead, led by Sean’s key walk and stolen base. The players contributed in the following ways: Joe C had a double and one run batted in, Anthony C. had one stolen base, Alex had one run batted in, Stephen had a single, Nicky had a double and two runs batted in, Anthony I. had a double, James N. had one hit and three runs batted in, Matty T. had a double, triple and a homerun, along with three runs batted in. However, great pitching by Eric, Anthony C. and Anthony I. was not enough to hold the lead; the sharks won 9-8.
On Sunday, Nov. 6 the 5- and 6-year-old Syosset Braves completed their successful regular season with an offensive explosion. Playing on a frost-covered field in the early morning, the Braves routed their cross-town rivals the Hicksville Crusaders five touchdowns to one touchdown.
As with most of the season, the reliable backfield tandem of Braden Sosnik and Jack LaBianca found the end zone early in the game for the Braves. Nicholas Polizotto and Matthew Donaldson added long touchdown runs of their own. But it was the Braves’ last score that would be talked about long after the game ended - Kyle Joe connected on a pass to Ethan Hart for a 60-yard touchdown reception.
