Robert Seaman Elementary School’s student body gathered in the gymnasium for a much anticipated student-faculty volleyball game. The eager fifth-graders filed into the gymnasium, prepared to challenge the faculty with an array of aces, assists, serves and spikes. The faculty lineup, led by Principal Adam Winnick, was also prepared with a display of athleticism, zeal and lots of enthusiasm.
The fifth-graders were divided into two groups, with three sets of games played by each group. Mrs. Treiber’s class and half of Mrs. Horowitz’s class played the first set of games. The final score was 2-1 in favor of the fifth-graders, with three close matches. The second team, comprised of Mrs. Gladd’s class and the other half of Mrs. Horowitz’s class, was also filled with excitement and thrills. The final score was again 2-1, fifth-graders. The teams were fortunate to have Physical Education Coaches Patrick Smith on hand as a referee and Lauren Browne as a scorekeeper, counting every point and watching every move.
The Long Island Thunderbolts Softball Team will host a five-week training session for young softball players at the Hebrew Academy of Nassau County, at 25 Country Drive in Plainview. This clinic allows the Thunderbolts to raise necessary team funds, while teaching girls the skills they need to be ready to hit it out of the park during softball season in the spring. The “2013 Winter Work Out” will feature lessons on hitting, bunting and fielding.

This past fall, Jericho native Amanda Epstein was a force to be reckoned with on the soccer field. The sophomore led her team at Marist College in points scored and also led the Metro Athletic Athletic Conference (MAAC) in game-winning goals for the second year in a row. She also won two Offensive Player of the Week awards from MAAC, was named the No. 2 player from MAAC out of approximately 270 players, was one of only 16 players across the nation to be named to the CollegeSoccer360.com Primetime Performers Weekly Honor Roll, and finished an impressive seventh in the nation in NCAA Division 1 game-winning goals.
Not bad for a season where she was forced to spend a solid quarter of it on the bench.
Once again this year, the Long Island Thunderbolts Softball Team will be hosting a five-week training session for young softball players at the Hebrew Academy of Nassau County, located at 25 Country Drive in Plainview. This clinic allows the Thunderbolts to raise necessary team funds, while teaching girls the skills they need to be ready to hit it out of the park during softball season in the spring. The “2013 Winter Work Out” will feature lessons on hitting, bunting and fielding.
Hitters need to bring a bat and helmet, fielders need to bring gloves, and pitchers need to bring their own catchers. Tuition is $175 for all five classes, or $40 per session; a special team rate is available, $1850 for a maximum of 14 players. Parents must sign a waiver before their child may participate.
Dates have been announced for families to register girls to play SYAC Girls Softball in spring 2013 and to be evaluated for a team. Each year, hundreds of girls in Syosset, Woodbury and Jericho, from grades K-9, play softball with SYAC. The program has been held each spring for the past four decades.
SYAC will hold registration and evaluation sessions in the small gym at H.B. Thompson Middle School to evaluate skill levels to form balanced teams. Girls should wear sneakers and bring a fielding mitt. Girls may also bring a bat, though bats are provided. All girls who register and are evaluated are placed on teams. The cost for the season is $130.
