The venue for the Great Prostate Cancer 5 Kilometer Run on Nov. 14 is a bit different than the standard road race, with 3.1 miles entirely on the pathways of the Town of Oyster Bay’s Golf Course in Woodbury. The not-so-gentle (but short) hills provided an interesting challenge that the 382 finishers – a 30 percent increase over 2009 – seemed to thoroughly enjoy once again.
The 10-year-old Syosset Braves Football Team are Super Bowl champs this year. In a rematch of last year’s title game, Syosset proved to be the better team this time around in a thrilling, hard-hitting affair that ended 6-0 in favor of the Braves over the Baldwin Bombers. It was a fitting ending to great season that saw the boys play great football as they grew more competitive from week to week.
The offense, led by quarterback Tyler Parlo, dominated the Baldwin defense. They kept the Bomber offense on the sidelines for all but one possession in the entire second half, proving the old adage that the best defense is a good offense. Parlo was on top of his game as he made perfect pitch after perfect pitch to his running backs, keeping the Baldwin defenders at bay while not turning the ball over. His play allowed the coaches to open up the playbook and had the defense playing on its heels when it mattered most.
There is simply no better way for local runners and their families to celebrate the Holiday season than by being part of the fun at the Ho Ho Ho Holiday 5 Kilometer Run, and on Saturday morning, Dec. 18, athletes from Plainview-Old Bethpage, Woodbury, Syosset, Jericho and surrounding communities are invited to celebrate the 23rd annual edition of this event at the John F. Kennedy Middle School in Bethpage.

The Syosset Girls Varsity Tennis Team defeated Half Hollow Hills West at Smithtown East High School by a score of 6-1 to clinch their second consecutive Long Island Championship. The varsity team defeated Half Hollow Hills West by the same score, 6-1, in 2009 for the Long Island Championship. The Syosset team also defeated Garden City High School, 5-2 to win the Nassau County Team Championship.
This past weekend, the 5- and 6-year-old Braves completed their successful season with two games. On Saturday, Nov. 13, Syosset traveled to Bellmore where the “Battle of the Braves” would end in a tie, with two touchdowns each.
For the most part, a field goal in football is worth three points, a game winning score or plays second fiddle to scoring a touchdown. For Craig Pinto, it was worth raising over $5,000 for celiac disease, awareness and a place in the Guinness Book of World Records.
This past Sunday, the 5/6 Braves continued their winning ways with a three-touchdown-to-two-touchdown victory over the Floral Park Titans. The close score was not indicative of the game, as the Braves dominated on both sides of the field.
The sun was shining, the wind was blowing and the answer to the question “Can the Jericho JV football team go undefeated?” was only 48 minutes away. These boys put their hearts and souls into their practices, working with their coaches, and their will to learn. This Saturday’s football game against the Valley Stream Central Eagles started and finished like all the rest.
