Dan McGrath scored his 12th overall victory of the year, Katie DiPietro took top honors among the women, and Peter Hawkins completed still another wheelchair win, as beautiful skies and brisk temperatures greeted the competitors in the 23rd Annual Carter, DeLuca, Farrell & Schmidt Ho Ho Ho Holiday Run on Dec. 18. A total of 1060 runners, walkers and wheelchair athletes navigated the streets of Bethpage before crossing the finish line at the John F. Kennedy Middle School.
A strong contingent of runners from the local area did exceptionally well in this year’s run. The first local finisher to cross the finish line was 15-year-old Tim Mahony of Syosset, who finished in 28th place overall and second in the 15-19 age group with a time of 19 minutes, 24 seconds. The first woman finisher from the local area was Shari Levi Klarfeld of Plainview, who was the second woman overall, and first in the 30-34 age group, in 19:38.
Junior Adam Fein of Woodbury helped the New York University men’s soccer team to an historic 2010 campaign.
Fein played in 15 games, starting 10, at outside midfielder. His lone goal of the season was a tremendous one, as it lifted NYU to a 1-0 victory over Brandeis University in the regular-season finale, clinching the Violets’ first-ever University Athletic Association (UAA) Championship. Fein added three assists during the year and enters his senior season tied for fifth in school history in assists per game.
NYU’s first UAA Championship secured it an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament out of a league that sent four of eight schools to the tournament. The Violets finished the season 11-3-4 overall (4-0-3 in the UAA), achieved rankings of #20 in the nation and #2 in the East Region, and were selected to host the first and second rounds of the NCAA Tournament. NYU’s historic season came to an end in the opening round of NCAA’s, where it fell in overtime, 3-2.

Dickey.
Runners of all ages and levels of ability – including and especially those from the local communities of Plainview-Old Bethpage, Syosset, Jericho and Woodbury – are invited to join in the fun at the inaugural Sayville Running Company 10 Mile Run to the Brewery on Saturday morning, Jan. 8, 2011.
The Dec. 7 kickoff meeting of the RunSmart training program was a big success. More than a hundred people were on hand at the Plainview-Old Bethpage Public Library to hear an introduction to the program by head coach Debbie Blair, talks by Bob Cook of the Runner’s Edge on running shoes and running apparel, Long Island Marathon Festival of Races Medical Director Dr. Edward Fryman on injury prevention, Joe Picini on motivation, Wayne Vartabedian on heart monitors as a training and racing aid, and Tracy Stopler on nutrition for runners.
Congratulations go out to the St. Edward Monarchs volleyball team on their winning season. The St. Edward Middle School team finished the season undefeated with an 8-0 record. The Monarchs made it to the championship round of the Long Island Catholic Athletic Association play-offs where they played a competitive match against St. Patrick’s in Huntington. Don MacAvoy, coach, said afterwards “I am very proud of our girls. They played their hearts out to the end and never gave up.”
The 2010 Roller Derby season on Long Island came to an exciting end as the Ladies of Laceration took on the Rolling Thundercats for the title of season champions. While the Rolling Thundercats eventually prevailed, it was a competitive, exciting bout all the way through that had hundreds of fans at Skate Safe America in Old Bethpage on Saturday night, Dec. 4 cheering on their favorite “roller girls.”
While not quite as nice as last year’s weather, the weather for this year’s 18th annual edition of Long Island Blood Services Rob’s Run was a good deal better than in 2008, and this year’s finale of the USATF-Long Island Cross Country season welcomed 528 finishers to the Stillwell Woods course.
