Somers Tops Tappan Zee

ORANGEBURG, N.Y.— Behind five goals apiece from Gabby and Livy Rosenzweig, Somers’ varsity girls lacrosse team defeated host Tappan Zee 18-8 on Wednesday, May 4.

The Tuskers led 7-3 at halftime, but pulled away in the second half.

“In the second half we started adjusting to Tappan Zee’s style of play and started taking the game into our control,” said Gabby, who also had two assists. “We stopped letting them control the pace of the game. They were very athletic and aggressive and we weren’t letting the game come to us in the first half. By the second half we started being more patient and playing smart and that was the key to our win.”

Teagan Lucchese had three goals and an assist, while Katie Campbell and Hannah Tiso each added two goals. Sydney Ericson also added a goal.

“We’re continuing to click as a team and it’s something very special to watch,” Gabby said. “We all want the girl next to us to succeed and this mindset is pivotal to our success.”

Jess Monaco made six saves for the unbeaten Tuskers, who improved to 14-0.

Somers took on Ursuline on May 11 and will host defending Section 1 Class C champion Bronxville on May 14, at 11 a.m. for its senior day to close out the regular season.

“Bronxville is a very talented team,” Gabby said. “Most of their girls play year round and they are very athletic. To pull out that win we need to play with a lot of energy, heart and hustle. If we play our solid defensive game and fast-paced offense we will be set.”

The two-time defending Section 1 Class B champion Tuskers are getting prepared for sectionals, which start on May 18.

“Going into sectionals we’re working on our endurance and game situations, so that we’re prepared for anything that is thrown at us, Gabby Rosenzweig said. “Hopefully this week we pull out two wins that will add to the momentum we have going into playoffs.”

The power of less productivity

Many of the people I meet are trying to do too much. This can be in the domain of home, work or community groups. Often the problem is that these people volunteer to help but do so to their own detriment and then become overwhelmed and ineffective. I have clients who volunteer to join committees, run errands, do someone else’s job or say they will show up for an event when they should just ...

Why Do Kids Hate Math?

Dear Dr. Linda,

I am in second grade and have a problem about math. My teacher just keeps giving me homework and it’s driving me crazy. Because she keeps giving it to me on weekends and spring and summer breaks. And it’s only one level and it’s too hard. But the other people who have special needs get to be moved into a higher or lower group and they learn even more because ...

‘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 ...
