Wings shut down and sink Sailors

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.

Brittany Burke and

Hannah Eilbeck

go to State Finals

For the eighth year in a row, Garden City was represented at the State Tennis Tournament in Albany. The doubles team of Brittany Burke and Hannah Eilbeck finished third at the Nassau County Tennis Championships held at Eisenhower Park last month, earning the duo a spot in the State Finals.

Upon entering the Nassau County tournament, Burke and Eilbeck were seeded second overall in the single elimination tournament. This seeding earned them a first round bye. Round two was a 10-game pro-set against a team from Carey which they won comfortably at 10-2. Round three pitted the girls against conference rivals Lai and Hwang from Great Neck South. Burke and Eilbeck really started to play their best tennis, reading the other team’s every move and attacking the ball early in the point. They defeated them 6-2, 6-0. In the quarter finals, the ladies were up against another conference foe: Roslyn. Once again, Garden City brought their A-Game and defeated Roslyn, 6-1, 6-0, putting them in the semi-finals on Sunday.

The Garden City girls’ soccer team won their second Nassau County Championship in four years with a shootout victory over South Side at the Denton Avenue field. Coach Mike Heedles and assistant coach Scott McCauley both knew before the game that the girls were loose and ready to play on Tuesday night. What they didn’t know was would that be enough against a talented team like South Side, the two time defending State Champions. The girls answered any doubt with a resounding victory after 110 minutes of physical, well-played soccer and five perfect penalty kicks.

Surgeon supports

Breast Cancer Awareness

Free falling for nearly 65 seconds, the plastic surgeon sported a pink jumpsuit as part of a month-long promotion that donated proceeds to the Breast Cancer Foundation of New Zealand.
