That's all it took for the Hicksville High School boys soccer team to advance to the semi finals last Wednesday, as Hicksville’s Matt Sloan delivered a clear-cut pass to TJ Kilmetis, who knocked in the game-winning goal with just minutes remaining in the hotly contested match against Calhoun.
Congratulations to Hicksville athletes Mary-Jo DePaoli and Kevin Kremler who both took home awards from the the Oyster Bay Town Supervisor’s 5 Kilometer Run.
DePaoli crossed the finish line in 22 minutes, 47 seconds, to earn second place honors in the women’s 35-39 age group, and Kremler earned the 5th place award in the 60-64 age group with a finishing time of 23:25.
The 5 Kilometer Oyster Bay course is a classic one through the heart of Oyster Bay hamlet, starting on South Street by the Firehouse, with a long uphill on Berry Hill Road, a steep downhill on Sandy Hill Road, and a stretch down East Main Street to the last turn into the Townsend Square parking field to the finish line.
It's almost Thanksgiving and that means soon it will be time for turkey, pumpkin pie and yes, lacrosse! The Michael Magro Foundation will be holding their second annual “Thanksgiving Lacrosse Alumni Game" on Saturday, Nov. 30 at the Hicksville High School turf field. Last year’s event drew nearly 70 alumni participants and many other Hicksville residents. Organizers are hoping for an even better turn out this year and are also encouraging all women alumni to participate. The event, which is sponsored by MDP Lacrosse, is a charity lacrosse game for Hicksville Alumni who are in town for the holiday weekend and want to get together to generate donations for a worthy cause.
Hicksville is full of young, talented athletes. Come support your Hicksville Comets at one of these upcoming games!

The Comets volleyball team was defeated by a very tough and talented Port Washington squad in all three sets. Despite the loss, Head Coach Danielle Sekasan does not want her team to be discouraged.
“They have a very good team,” said Sekasan. “They are pretty much intact from last season. They have strong players and they play on club teams. It is very hard to compete with players that play year round,” she added.

You know you have a product when you can attract more than 20 people at 7 a.m. every Saturday and Sunday morning, especially after restricting participation to TOBY residents. Except open gym isn’t really a product at all, but a free program offered by the recently built Town of Oyster Bay Hicksville Recreation Center, which, in a partnership P.A.L. Co-Director Doug Kenah calls “very positive”, splits its time between P.A.L. leagues for kids under the age of 18 and town-organized activities for adults 18 and over. In a world where adult sport leagues charge increasingly greater fees, Hicksville’s partnership with P.A.L. offers a refreshing movement against the trend of pay to play.
