Jessica Kitrys leading

Adelphi to best start in years

In this Sportscenter Era in which every athlete wants to become the next LeBron James or Kobe Bryant, it is refreshing to hear a player attempt to carve her own path. The leading scorer on No. 13-ranked Adelphi Panthers basketball is content being the best Jessica Kitrys she can be.

“I never really had a favorite athlete growing up,” said the senior from Parlin, NJ. “I just have a favorite team,” she added. That team-first mentality has enabled her to lead the Adelphi Panthers to a 12-1 start to the season which garnered national recognition in the latest coaches poll. They peaked at No. 13 with only one team in the NE-10 ranked higher, and that is Bentley University which also began 12-0.

Garden City topples Westbury

When a team is struggling to find consistency, they look for their star player to take charge and swing the momentum back in their favor. That is precisely what junior Sam Auricchio did for the Garden City girls basketball team in their 61-41 victory over Westbury.

“She means everything to this team,” said Head Coach Anthony Sparacia. “She has really become an elite player because she is an all around player, whereas she used to just be a shooter, now she’s going to the rim and the free throw line. She shoots the ball lights out from the perimeter—she makes us go,” he added.

Adelphi alum follows in

Hall of Famer’s footsteps

Making it to the Major Lacrosse League is an extraordinary feat, especially if you come from a Division II lacrosse program. But for former Adelphi University standout Joe Vitale, it’s a family tradition.

At age 8, Vitale was handed his first lacrosse stick by his uncle, New York Saints attacker Don Borges. Later, Vitale went on to earn All-American honors at Adelphi, where he graduated in 2012 after leading the team to a National Championship game appearance. This past year, the 23-year-old Lynbrook native earned a paycheck playing for the MLL’s New York Lizards, who play home games at Hofstra University.

Getting Sweet Revenge

Garden City Wings

upset Owls 7-2

Since Garden City’s loss in last year’s semi-final playoffs to Lynbrook, Coach Rich Peck wanted the Wings to emerge victorious against the Owls the next time they were matched up. However, for that game at the Bethpage Sakting Rink, the Garden City team was to be short-benched on players. To overcome this, Coach Rich invited Alex Feinstein, one of his goalies, to play out while Matt Lobasso, the resident goalie on the Wings, closely guarded the net.   

During the first half of period one, both teams found themselves scoreless. Finally, powerhouse Post (#27) broke Lynbrook’s shutout unassisted, with seven minutes left on the clock, followed by (#97) Junior Matt Borges, unassisted, with 4:48 minutes left. The Owls were unable to respond in kind.

Attorney says

“Boxing is

like litigation”

Garden City’s Roseanne “Ro-Hammad Ali” Beovich was taken aback the first time she took a hit when preparing to box for the 10th annual LI Fight for Charity that took place last month at the Hilton in Melville. After training at the Glen Cove Boxing Club three times a week, it became easier for her to put up her dukes and get into the ring to raise money for local charities on Long Island.
