The spectators and fans who attended the 4th/5th Grade Girls PAL Soccer League Champion game at Memorial Field on Nov. 22 were given a special treat. Both teams played their heart out, but the Cyberrays came out on top by just one goal. Erica Levy and Romi Sofi each scored goals for the Cyberrays. Erica was the Cyberrays’ top goal producer throughout the season and continued her torrid production when it counted most.
In their final game of the season, the Great Neck Jaguars prevailed against Rockville Centre on its home field, winning by two goals. In November, the Jaguars enjoyed a dominating victory of 4-1 over Manhasset at Plainview’s Soccer Park. In both games, the Jaguars’ offense was outstanding, maintaining a fluid rhythm between the midfielders and forwards, while the defense remained solid and almost impenetrable.
Congratulations to 30-year-old Great Neck superstar Rita Siminkas, who scored as the second woman overall and the first finisher in the women’s 30-34 Age Group in the inaugural Great Prostate Cancer 5 Kilometer Run on Sunday morning, Nov. 22.
Nearly a thousand runners, walkers and wheelchair athletes registered for the Capital One Bank Blazing Trails 4-Autism 4 Mile Run held in Great Neck on Sunday, Nov. 8, and 794 of them were recorded as successfully completing the four mile course that ended on the track at Great Neck South High School.
The Pirates threatened early on a Mike Ayala double. John Kyriannis followed with a smash to centerfield, which was caught, bobbled and then caught again by Joe Mogilner. It was the defensive gem of the day. The Braves battery consisted first of Jordan Grieff throwing to starting catcher Jared Schwartz. In the middle innings they reversed roles with Jared taking the mound and Jordan moving behind the plate. Both combinations were effective and held the Pirates scoreless through four innings.
On a beautiful Sunday afternoon the PAL Baseball Playoffs began with four semifinal round games. A crowd of about 50 fans were witness to one of the greatest Little League baseball games in Great Neck history. The Pirates, led by coaches Mark Putter and Mike Kyriannis faced the Rangers led by coaches Ron Guggenheimer and Fred Palacios.
Shouting and cheering all around, Great Neck North High had a spectacular main event this year for the Long Island Special Olympics basketball teams. Being the host, the Great Neck Spirits basketball team not only played well, but supported every team with encouragement, cheering and good spirit. On Sunday, June 7, the main event started bright and early with the National Anthem sung by one of the athletes. It was a great way to start off this tournament of athletes from all over Long Island, who not only competed against each other but also enthusiastically supported one another.
On Thursday, Oct. 15, over 70 people gathered at Tulip Restaurant on Welwyn Road in Great Neck, to show appreciation to Barbara Mandell for arranging their tennis games. Barbara has been organizing tennis groups at Memorial Field for over ten years, according to players’ abilities and compatibilities. The group is comprised of more than 50 men and women ranging from beginner to advanced levels.
The party was fun filled with live entertainment by group members, including professional singers, authors and even a harmonica player. But most of all, players spoke from their hearts, offering dedications and poems to let Barbara know how much she is appreciated for keeping the group together.
On Oct. 10, former Great Neck Bruin players, coaches, families and friends returned to the ice rink they knew as their home when they were growing up to participate in the first ever Great Neck Bruins Alumni Game.
The event, co-sponsored by the Great Neck Park District, was cleverly scheduled in conjunction with the 30th Great Neck High School reunion being held at the USMMA that evening. So players were on hand from all over the country, who normally would not have been able to attend.
