The second annual Hicksville alumni lacrosse game was held Saturday, Nov. 30 at Hicksville High School’s turf field.
The event, which is becoming a Hicksville Thanksgiving weekend tradition, raised $5,230 for the Michael Magro Foundation, an organization dedicated to the support of children with cancer and their families.
“It’s a great time when many of us are in town and can get together to raise money for a good cause,” said Class of 2005 alum Rob McCormick.
The boys golf team finished in third place with a 5-3 record, making the fall season one of their most successful in recent history. Their six wins doubled their previous year’s win total and surpassed their win total for any of the previous seven seasons. The team posted a record low team shot total at Eisenhower Golf Course with a 221 against Mineola, a total not recorded in the previous eight seasons.
Moreover, based on individual golf averages and county cut scores from last year, the team is poised to send Steven Maiorca and Andrew Maiorca for the second consecutive year to the Nassau Boys County Golf Tournament in the spring of 2014. The 2013 Boys Golf season was a tremendous success due to the hard work and dedication the entire team put forth this year and the previous three years.
Showing real strength for the 2013-2014 season, the Hicksville Varsity Girls Swim and Diving team finished at 5-3 in the conference. This is the most girls that have earned post season honors in the last eight years. Individually the girls have shown marked improvements. Senior Alessandra Riccio dropped 10 seconds in the 200 IM while junior Hunter Isnardi reduced her time from 8:10.09 to 7:35.29 in the 500 freestyle.
The most recent additions, eigth graders Valentina Petruso and Gabriella Niculescu, were a huge asset to the team. Both girls swam in the A relay team the entire season. Hicksville won the Conference 200 Medley Relay with a time of 2:18.88 and was third in the 400 Freestyle (Sarah Crespo, Hunter Isnardi, Gabriela Niculescu, and Lauren Janovsky). Crespo also won the 50 Free and 100 Free, Lauren Janovsky was 3rd in the 100 Backstroke and Hunter Isnardi was 3rd in the 100 Breast Stroke at the Conference finals.
Hicksville’s Jill Loveland, 28, scored as the second finisher among the women in the 25-29 age group in the 21st annual New York Blood Services Rob’s Run, a 5 Kilometer cross country race held through Stillwell Woods in Woodbury on Sunday morning, Dec. 1. Loveland finished the run in 22 minutes, 29 seconds.The weather for this year’s run was nearly perfect for a late Fall cross country race, and the net result was a bunch of pretty impressive performances — and lots of enthusiasm — on the part of the 534 finishers. The run was staged by the Greater Long Island Running Club in cooperation with the Town of Oyster Bay.
“We were thrilled to see Jill Loveland do so well in this event,” observed Run Co-Director Sue Fitzpatrick. She is a great competitor and a valued member of the club."
As they come off their most successful season in 30 years, the Hicksville Boys basketball team faces a challenge in replicating last year's success. The 2012-13 season saw the Comets compile a 15-5 record and had their season ending in the Nassau County semifinals to rival Baldwin. According to Head Coach Phil Essigman, who is entering his 14th season with the varsity team, the team will feature only two returning players from last season. Last year’s team was incredibly deep and experienced and it is part of the “rollercoaster”, as he described it, of high school sports for teams to go through periods of grooming inexperienced players.
Hicksville’s Mary-Jo Depaoli, and Nao Joe scored with awards on Sunday, November 17 in the 5th annual Blue Ribbon Run for Prostate Cancer, a 5 Kilometer road race that started and finished at Syosset-Woodbury Community Park.Depaoli crossed the finish line with a time of 23:01, earning her second place honors in the women’s 35-39 age group, and Joe finished the race with a time of 28:36, to earn third place in the women’s 30-34 age group, A record breaking total of 414 runners and walkers crossed the finish line.

The third grade Our Lady of Mercy Boys Basketball Team got off to a strong start Sunday, Nov. 17, in front of a packed house at the OLM Gym in Hicksville.
The boys took on a tough Saint Killians squad from Farmingdale. Johnny Sullivan led the way on offense, scoring six points for Mercy. Liam Toner did an outstanding job running the offense, and scoring four points of his own. RJ Ivers was tough to defend as he also dropped four points. Nicholas Soliman played great on both sides of the court scoring two points of his own. Evan Glusic hit a clutch freethrow. Joe Sayers played his usual tenacious defense, and hustled on every play. Danny W. was a force on defense, and Lucas Spector, and Tyler B. were also playing great on both sides of the court. It was a great game that ended in a 17-17 tie.This was the boys first ever CYO game, they have been playing in the Our Lady of Mercy Basketball Clinics since kindergarten.
