A bit of rain could only delay, but not cancel, the festive kickoff to the SYAC Girls Softball spring season. The 2012 season officially began April 25 with the singing of the national anthem and a ceremonial first ball thrown out by Nassau County Legislator Judy Jacobs. As it is each year, SYAC Opening Night was held at the softball field at Syosset-Woodbury Park.
Each spring, several hundred girls from Syosset, Woodbury and Jericho play SYAC Girls Softball. There are four age divisions: Instructional (grades K-1), Pony (2-3), Junior (4-5) and Senior (6-9). Games are played weekday nights, and the season extends into early June with playoffs. For more information, visit www.syacgs.org.
