Hicksville Runners Excel in 18th Annual Rob’s Run

Friday, 17 December 2010 00:00

While not quite as nice as last year’s weather, the weather for this year’s 18th annual edition of Long Island Blood Services Rob’s Run was a good deal better than in 2008, and this year’s finale of the USATF-Long Island Cross Country season welcomed 528 finishers to the Stillwell Woods course on Nov. 28.

Run organizers were pleased to welcome Eddie Lauterborn to the Run once again this year. The Run is conducted in the memory of Eddie’s brother Rob, an outstanding runner and wonderful human being, who left us far too soon 15 years ago.

The top finisher from Hicksville was 16-year-old Taylor Plank, who scored in 32nd place OA in18:14. Rafael Medalla of Hicksville also had an outstanding race, taking third place honors in the 40-44 Age Group with a time of 19:23.

Chris Mammone of the Bellmore Striders won top honors for the third year in a row, with a 15:31 finish that was 10 seconds faster than his 2009 winning time. Chris’ Bellmore teammate Matt Walsh was the runner-up, 13 seconds behind Chris. Noni Accetturi took top honors in the Women’s Division in 18:10, leading a 1-2-3 Bellmore sweep in the Women’s Division.

Kate Ahlers Completes Grueling 26-Mile Trek Through City

Many people recoil in horror when considering running 26.219 miles, but Kate Ahlers, who performed a majority of her training throughout Hicksville, took to the challenge in stride.

On Nov. 7, Ahlers, in her 25th marathon, ran alongside over 40,000 competitors in the ING New York City Marathon, one of the largest races in the world. Her boyfriend, Patrick Pendas, of Hicksville, helped her train locally and ran with her during miles 22 to 24 of the race.

“Afterwards you’re excited and bubbly and all that, but what’s funny is you really need to walk after the race or you really stiffen up.

Friday, 03 December 2010 00:00

The newest generation of the Hicksville Hurricanes is rapidly making a name for themselves.

The 10U (11U this spring) Team, who all summer were giving some of the best teams around a run for their money, took first place in the Bethpage Fall Classic in a sweet fashion.

After a slow and tired start, and a lineup tweaking by the coaches, the young Canes roared through the playoff rounds. They took out the Plainview Hawks in the quarterfinal, and thanks to the outstanding outing by the lefty Terence Wong, they crushed the Farmingdale Mudcats in the semifinals.

Kevin Kremler Scores in 2nd Annual Great Prostate Cancer 5K

Friday, 26 November 2010 00:00

The venue for the Great Prostate Cancer 5-Kilometer Run on Nov. 14 is a bit different than the standard road race, with 3.1 miles entirely on the pathways of the Town of Oyster Bay’s Golf Course in Woodbury, and the not-so-gentle (but short) hills provided an interesting challenge that the 382 finishers (a 30 percent increase over 2009) seemed to thoroughly enjoy once again.

Veteran Hicksville runner Kevin Kremler turned in another strong performance in this year’s Run, finishing in 22:06 to earn the second place award in the 55-59 age group.

Uniondale Stops Hicksville 24-0

Friday, 19 November 2010 00:00

There were a number of reasons why the 11-year-old Hicksville Crusaders lost their playoff game against the Uniondale Knights, but lack of effort was certainly not one of them. On this particular Sunday, the Crusaders simply got outplayed. The final score of 24-0 did not tell the whole story however.

Hicksville’s defense fought magnificently throughout the first half. Alex Pierce had a fumble recovery and Tom Fleming, Nick Austin and Ryan McBride all made important defensive contributions. Vincent Barretta grabbed his first interception of the season. Just before the half came to an end, Uniondale scored but was unable to convert.
