For college students from Nassau County, winter break doesn’t have to mean a month of inactivity. The Nassau County Aquatic Center is offering residents who are college students the opportunity to swim and work out through a short-term winter break membership, announced Nassau County Executive Thomas R. Suozzi.
Through Jan. 31, 2010, the “College Total Health Pass” provides students with unlimited access to the Olympic-size swimming pool and the state-of-the-art fitness center overlooking the pool, for a fee of only $35.

What an exciting season the 8th grade girls soccer team had, coached by John Vitale and what a dynamite way to finish out their very last CYO soccer game. The girls worked hard during the season and have earned 1st place in their division! Most of these girls have been playing CYO soccer since kindergarten and have formed a bond of friendship on and off the soccer field! It has been a lot of fun watching these girls grow up into beautiful young ladies who know the importance of teamwork and also how to have fun on the soccer field! On behalf of all the parents, we would like to thank John for his dedication for the past 9 years and offer congratulations to all of the girls who made this victory possible.

On a picture perfect day, the Mineola Mustang Run, conceived by Lynn Fairgrieve and with the help of her hard-working crew, ended last Sunday after 25 successful years. The feeling by all, and there were several hundred, at the run was one of sadness and nostalgia.
The rain and wind of a nor’easter could not dampen the spirits of the girls as they came up big against a very good Farmingdale team en route to a much deserved 3-2 victory. The Lady Pumas continued their hot streak going 3-1-1 in their last 5 games, improving week after week. Saturday’s win was the highlight of the season to date.
Summary: NHP got on the board first about 5 minutes into the game when Cara Becker crashed in on goal, caught the Farmingdale goalie charging out, and lobbed a shot over the goalie’s head to make it 1-0. The first half ended 1-0 NHP. About 5 minutes into the 2d half, Farmingdale dashed in on goal and tied the game 1-1 - and created the makings for an exciting finish. NHP then countered with 2 quick goals of their own. Casey Sanders scored the key of goal of the game – making a beautiful spin move to spring herself into the penalty area off a long ball pass from Izzy Glennon, and then tucking a well-struck ball into the far right post for the 2-1 lead. Katie Krems then netted what would be the game winner, off a nice steal pass from Sophie Leeds that Kate put away for the 3-1 lead. Farmingdale got a goal back to make it 3-2 with about 5 minutes left in the game, but the girls held tough and did a good job playing D to preserve the victory.
It was another great outing for the mighty Cardinals who displayed both offensive power and defensive excellence against a very good Angels team today. The hitting assault was led by John Napolitano who not only just missed hitting for the cycle (single, double, triple, 1 RBI, 1 run scored), but made a great diving catch of a hard hit line drive to 3rd base. Also swinging a hot bat was Sean O’Connor (2 singles, 2 RBI, 1 run scored) and Andrew Colgan (single, double, 1 RBI, 1 run scored) who also continued to display impressive fielding skills and a tremendously strong arm in the field. Jake Glueck, who hit a single and his third double of the season, and Anthony DePompeis, who hit 3 singles, combined to drive in two runs and score another two runs. Scott Schanter displayed great range at 2nd base with a nice play of a sharply hit ball to nail the runner at 1st base and contributed offensively with a single and a run scored. Grant Joseph not only hit a single but was steady at 2nd base while Alessandro Lacerra did a solid job in the outfield and behind the plate as catcher. Kenny Gensch and Joseph Griffin each flashed the leather in the field.
