Our Lady of Mercy’s Brittany Ross has signed on as a coach with SUNY Maritime’s women’s soccer team for the upcoming 2013 season.
Ross most recently served as the Junior Varsity Head Coach of the girls’ soccer team at Our Lady of Mercy Academy in Syosset. She has also worked with the Long Island Rough Riders Soccer Club since 2010.
Sophomore Attackman Mac O’Keefe of the Syosset Braves varsity lacrosse team recently announced a verbal commitment to Penn State, according to reports by LaxLessons, a source for lacrosse news.
The second in the class of 2016 to commit, after defender EJ Aronson committed to Army, O’Keefe made headlines this past May when he secured the quarterfinal win for the Braves in an intense triple overtime battle against MacArthur at Hofstra University.
Then a freshman, O’Keefe, exhausted, simply said: “I didn’t have that much time, so I just put it up in the corner of the net.”
Head coach for the Syosset Braves John Calabria has praised O’Keefe, saying: “We have a lot of confidence in Mac, he gets a lot of playing time for a freshman (at the time).”
The 2013 Sands Point 5K Sprint for the North Shore-LIJ Feinstein Institute was recently held on August 10, where local Plainview and Syosset runners were a success.
The Sands Point course is considered one of the most beautiful of any running event on Long Island by the Greater Long Island Running Club (GLIRC), however not an easy one. The trail in the third mile is not difficult to navigate, and the hill leading up from the trail is one of “the nastiest” found in any Long Island race.
Syosset High School Senior Matt Csillag is carrying inspiration from his grandfathers, Nazi concentration camp survivors Joseph Csillag and Oscar Cukierman, in all that he does in life - most recently winning the silver medal in golf at the 2013 19th Maccabi Games in Israel.
“My grandfather Joseph Csillag was on his way to the crematorium when he saw one of his friends who pulled him off of a pile of bodies and got him back on his feet,” Csillag said. “To think that he was that close to death shows me how lucky I am to be alive today, and I am even luckier that I was able to represent my country in the Maccabi games, which is centered around building Jewish pride.”
Malini Rudra of Syosset, entering grade seven attending Harry B. Thompson Middle School won the prestigious Maureen Olcutt Memorial Golf junior tournament held at the iconic White Beeches golf and country club in NJ.
The tournament was organized by the WMGA , the oldest women’s golf association in the U.S.
The Long Island Thunderbolts will be holding tryouts for the 2013-14 season for Girls Softball ages 10U-18U at Syosset/Woodbury Park.
The Long Island Thunderbolts is an organization that was established in 2010 and was founded by Coaches Carmine Mazzaro and Peter Janowsky. Their first year started out with just one team and they have now grown to five, as they look to expand on that. The club’s mission is to teach their players the game of softball one pitch at a time. They will accomplish this through discipline, respect for each other, integrity and poise as each player pushes and encourages one another to strive for greatness on and off the field.
The tenth annual Heart And Sole 5-Kilometer Run was held through the streets of Plainview on Sunday morning, July 22.
The Run started and finished at the Plainview-Old Bethpage Middle School. A record smashing field of 541 runners and walkers completed the Run as, in its tenth year, the Heart & Sole Run has clearly become one of the more important summer road races in Nassau County.
The 30th Annual Runners Edge Long Island Women’s Run on July 13 saw a field of 439 runners, walkers and wheelchair athletes crossing the finish line on the track at nearby Farmingdale High School.
Local runners were on hand for this event, and many of them took home awards. Top local finisher was Lauren Jasinski of Plainview, who finished eighth, overall and took home the second place award plaque in the 35-39 age-group.
The Syosset Braves varsity football team schedule was issued last week, pitting the number six seed first against East Meadow on September 12. Finishing in the bottom half of the 12-team Conference I last year, the Braves are looking to make a significant comeback.
The Braves, 4-4 last year, were stopped by Oceanside with a 49-24 quarterfinal loss. Going into halftime down 49-6, Oceanside had done all the damage they needed, and the Braves couldn’t make enough of a comeback.
The Long Island Rough Riders Women lost their last home game of the season 2-0 to the Virginia Beach Piranhas. Trailing seven points behind a playoff spot with two games remaining, they are now officially out of the hunt for another National Championship.
In the extreme heat at Cy Donnelly Stadium, both teams sought their opportunities early in the game. Three minutes into the game, W-League top scorer Shan Jones beat Marissa Mertens and Gabby Charno just outside the penalty box and had to be stopped by a courageously diving Rough Riders goalie Diana Poulin. The home team answered with a double chance in the fifth and seventh minute: Stephanie Colon’s header after a Dianna Marinaro cross could not threaten the Piranhas’ goal as it went wide. Deanna Murino finished a quick Rough Riders combination play with a strong shot but also missed the net.
