Hicksville had beaten a very good Massapequa team in their
semi final to get to the Championship game. Hicksville was
led by long time LISGYLL coach, Larry Fox, pictured in the
middle, who is the most senior and respected of all
LISGYLL's coaches. Larry, with no children on the team for
the past 10 years, has coached the Hicksville LISGYLL team
for even longer than that.

cannot be found anywhere else in the United States
||The Wantagh 8th
grade LISGYLL team won a dramatic and exciting 2013 Eighth Grade
Conference A Championship against an extremely excellent
Cold Spring Harbor team in the final game of the season.
Cold Spring entered the game undefeated having won their

record and having won their semi final game against the
always tough and competitive Harborfields team. In the

game as well as anyone around. Congratulations to both
teams for two outstanding seasons and years in LISGYLL.
