The best is yet to come, according to coach Sruli Beitler, when asked about his North Shore High School Hebrew Academy boys’ floor hockey team.
With the Stars’ season coming to an abrupt end last week in a Metropolitan Yeshiva High School Hockey League opening round 3-0 playoff loss to Rambam (from Lawrence), Beitler was anything but discouraged. “They gave it their best,” he said. “They took the loss well but they just didn’t have it.” With less than 13 minutes to go, Rambam broke a scoreless tie and then added two more goals in the final period.

As part of a renewed focus on workforce wellness, the North Shore-LIJ Health System is sending 40 employees to Paris, France, after they successfully completed a three-month fitness challenge in which they walked 7.2 million steps – the approximate distance from New York to Paris.
The winners of North Shore-LIJ’s “Walk to Paris” were announced on June 28 at the Crest Hollow Country Club, where more than 900 team captains converged to watch President and Chief Executive Officer Michael Dowling randomly select the four winning teams of 10. Of the nearly 1,500 teams (comprised of 15,000 employees) that entered the walking competition last March, 914 teams (or 9,140 employees) were eligible for the drawing after successfully completing the Walk to Paris, with individual team members averaging 8,000 steps a day over a three-month period. The health system gave each walker a high-tech pedometer to track their steps.
Matt Dobyns, head golf professional at Fresh Meadows Country Club in Lake Success, completed a runaway victory Wednesday, June 27, in the PGA Professional National Championship, closing with a 2-under 70 on the Bayonet course for a record eight-stroke margin.
The 34-year-old Dobyns finished at 13-under 275. The former University of Texas player shot a 68 at Black Horse on Sunday, and followed with rounds of 68 and 69 at Bayonet to take a six-stroke lead into the final round.
The New York Mets called up Justin Hampson from Triple-A Buffalo on Monday, June 25, making the pitcher the 11th former Duck to make it back to the Major League level after playing on Long Island. Hampson joins Carlos Baerga, Bill Pulsipher, Nelson Figueroa, Pedro Borbon, Jr., Ken Ray, Mel Stocker, Jay Gibbons, Erick Almonte, Robinson Cancel and Joey Gathright as Ducks that have made it back to the game’s highest level after playing at the Duck Pond.
Hampson earned the promotion after compiling a 4-2 record with a 2.13 ERA and two saves in 28 games with the Buffalo Bisons. The left-hander struck out 42 batters in 42 and one-third innings while walking just 15. A native of Illinois, he pitched in four games out of the bullpen for Long Island in 2010, striking out four batters in four innings.
In the championship, an early spark of offense from literally everybody in the lineup for the White Sox gave them an early 8-0 advantage. Some notable offensive players for the Sox in this game included Brad Fritzhand, Kevin Li, Oliver Pour, Noah Hakimian and Alec Rich.

“This is an incredible opportunity to raise unlimited funds for the participating charity and there are absolutely no costs to the organization,” said The Barclays Executive Director Peter Mele. “Fans will get to witness the very best the PGA tour has to offer and generate revenue for charities in New York and New Jersey during a time when these organizations need our help more than ever.”
