SYRACUSE, N.Y.— Jordan Barbagallo, a freshman at Mahopac High School, traveled to Syracuse on May 5 to try-out for The Under Armour All-America Underclass Lacrosse Tournament.

Two days later Barbagallo received an e-mail that she was one of two goalies selected to represent Upstate New York on the Command team in the prestigious tournament.

Each year, Under Armour, along with Corrigan Sports Enterprises, selects 20 field players and two goalies from each of the nations 11 regions to compete in a four-day tournament in Towson, Maryland which occurs between June 30-July 2.

Barbagallo, 14, has been playing lacrosse since the third grade and became a dedicated goalie in the fourth grade. She has worked long and hard to achieve this goal by training year round with private goalie coaches and playing lacrosse year round with MSA, Mahopac High’s JV squad and her league team Westchester Elite. Additionally, she has been working with Massi Machado Sports Performance and Training Group for strength and conditioning since she was 12 years old. Barbagallo did all of this while taking honors classes and maintaining a 3.85 GPA in her first year of high school.

Not true! Since April 2017, Amazon has collected sales taxes in all states that levy ...

‘Sister Act’: A Musical Like Nun Other

Of all the Broadway musicals I’ve seen over the years at Westchester Broadway Theatre, only a handful have elicited the noisily enthusiastic audience response I observed at the recent opening night of “Sister Act.”

There were outbursts of applause in the middle of some numbers, and several clever turns of phrase sprinkled in the dialogue landed squarely, to the delight of big ...

Cleaning the Empty Nest

Part of the shock of being a part-time empty nester is when the kids come back to visit and I have to watch my house transform overnight from a pristine haven of OCD goodness to a place that looks like an explosion happened at Forever 21.

After my kids moved mostly out, I put away whatever tchotchkes they chose to leave behind and then I put on a hazmat suit and cleaned their rooms until they ...
