Eric Haslbauer of Levittown scored fourth overall in the 11th annual Heart & Sole 5 Kilometer Run held on the streets of Plainview on July 20.
Haslbauer, 21, who has done most of his running lately for Molloy College, crossed the finish line in 17 minutes, 53 seconds, earning him the second place award in the highly competitive 20-24 age group.
A near record field of 531 runners and walkers completed the run, only ten less than the record set last year. The Heart & Sole has clearly become an important summer road race in Nassau County. The
Run benefits programs at Plainview and Syosset Hospitals. Race management was handled by the Greater Long Island Running Club.

Right off of Sea Cliff Ave. in Glen Cove, next door to the Sea Cliff train station, is the Robbie Wagner Tournament Training Center, a facility where children and adults alike have been coming to learn tennis skills for more than a decade, with several prodigies having gone pro. The center will host a Level 3 USTA Eastern Challenger this weekend, from July 25-27.
Tennis professional Scott Axler of Huntington runs all of the big junior tennis tournaments out of the facility, about 25 a year, including four national USTA events.
"The main thing in a level 3, is you want the kids to have a great experience,” says Axler. “We want them to have a positive experience; tennis should be fun. The tournament provides a good practice and the kids who get better move up.”
