The Adelphi University Lacrosse team is geared up for another championship run and aiming to claim its 8th NCAA title. After a heartbreaking lost to Le Moyne in last season’s semifinal, expectations for another deep run this year are very high.
The Panthers are led by seventh year head coach Gordon Purdie, who led the team to a dominant 10-1 conference performance and a 14-3 overall record. The squad got off to a sizzling 6-0 start matching the best start in the program’s history. While the team was ranked seventh at the start of last year’s campaign, Adelphi played hard and continue to climb up the rankings, resulting in its first NE-10 Regular Season title since joining the conference in 2009-10.

The Garden City Girls Winter Track Team recently competed at the trials for the Millrose Games where a 4x400m team of senior Laura Jaeger, junior Emma Gallagher, and seniors Emily Cafaro and Kelly Lawkins won the Nassau County section. The quartet ran a time of 3:55.33 which ranked them as U.S. #1 among high school teams at the time. On Jan. 25, the sprint relay team also had the fastest time in the country at the New Balance Games at the Armory.
Although the Garden City girls softball team lost nine seniors to graduation last year, do not mistake that for being in a rebuilding mode. The team has a new wave of veteran players; some of them still underclassmen, according to Head Coach Melissa Reichman.
Last year’s squad finished with an 11-5 record. But its season ended in the first round of the playoffs with a 9-0 loss to Wantagh. Luckily, many Lady Trojan starters will be returning.
Pitching wins championships, and Garden City baseball Head Coach Rich Smith is confident that his team has enough of it to make a run in 2014. He is not deterred by losing 11 seniors, many of which contributed to the team’s 15-7 season. Smith, in his 42nd year with the program, has seen almost everything on the baseball field, but noted that this team is unique in one way.
“On paper we have three lefties in the starting rotation,” said Smith. “And that’s something I’ve never had here,” he added. The trio of southpaws could prove to be nightmarish on the conference, even after its new alignment.

Things are looking up if you were a captain for a top youth soccer team, Albertson Fury ’91.
Fury captain Crystal Dunn, the 2012 Hermann Award recipient, was picked first overall by the Washington Spirit in the 2014 National Women’s Soccer League Draft. The other captain on the Fury, Garden City’s Emily Menges, was selected in the third round by the defending champion Portland Thorns, led by their former youth soccer coach, Paul Riley.
The Trojans of Garden City are still holding onto control of their own playoff destiny, even after a tough loss to Westbury 62-45.
“We got some good shots, we just didn’t finish,” said Garden City Head Coach Larry Steiner. “Westbury did a job on defense,” he added. Westbury chose to play a 1-3-1 half court trap to limit the effectiveness of Garden City’s strength, which is its outside shooting. The Trojans struggled to get through the trap.
