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.
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.

The 36th Annual Garden City Turkey Trot was held on a sunny but cold and windy Thanksgiving day. The frigid temperatures were no match for the more than 5,000 runners who ran in Long Island’s largest Thanksgiving day road race. The Turkey Trot consists of three races—a Challenger Division Race for courageous special needs athletes, a 1.4-mile Fun Run and a challenging 5-mile race.
Knowing they were facing off against a very physical team which had made the States for the last two consecutive years, the Garden City Wings Varsity Ice Hockey teammates discussed strategies in the locker room at the Bethpage Ice Arena. Alex Feinstein’s past netminding experiences for the Sailors would prove valuable to them as he drew upon his insight in how to compete against them effectively. Playing with the Garden City Wings team, together they crushed the Oceanside Sailors 7-2, earning their first Varsity win of the season in Nassau County High School Hockey League. Feinsten faced 30 shots while his teammates unloaded 24 on the opposing goalie.
This year’s 10th annual St. Joseph School Golf Outing and Honoree Dinner at Cherry Valley Country Club was double the fun.

At the dinner, Maureen and Frank Liantonio were honored for their years of tireless dedication to St. Joseph School.
