It’s sold out, and for the kids attending this week’s upcoming Ocean Breeze Cross Country clinic, it sure looks worth it.

The week-long clinic, held in the Ocean Breeze Athletic Complex, will provide kids with the opportunity to learn about different aspects as to how to achieve success over the hilly courses of Clove Lakes, Van Cortland, and hopefully Bowdoin Parks in the fall season. Last year’s inaugural edition drew about 100 young athletes and this year’s camp has quickly filled to 150.

Led by Ocean Breeze Park Administrator and former Manhattan College standout Lauren Primerano, the camp coaches include Vincent Stasi, Stephen McLean, and Peter Liotta.

*** and ***

Current Manhattan College coach Kerri Gallagher has also competed at the highest levels of cross country and the middle distances, as she is currently the seventh-ranked American Miler All-Time. In 2015 Gallagher, who was coached by Track icon Matt Centrowitz, qualified for the World Outdoor Track Championships, representing team USA in the 1500 meters.

JNEWS: Godino, Marcel [MC2015] Skidmore College assistant men’s lacrosse coach

Marcel Godino named assistant men’s lacrosse coach
8/3/2017 1:11:00 PM

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. – Skidmore College men’s lacrosse head coach Tucker Kear has announced the hiring of Marcel Godino as his assistant coach for the upcoming 2018 season. Godino will assist in recruiting, player development, offensive strategy, and scouting, among other tasks. 

Godino comes to Saratoga Springs after three seasons as an assistant coach with the Bard men’s lacrosse team. There, he assisted in recruiting, scouting, and game plan efforts for the Raptors. He developed two players at Bard who were honored with All-Liberty League selections over the three seasons. 

Prior to Bard, Godino worked with United Lacrosse from 2013-2015 as a coach and camp counselor, teaching basic skills and strategies to kids in the middle and high school levels. Godino also worked as an assistant coach at his alma mater, Summit High School in New Jersey, and has spent three seasons as a coach with the United States Naval Academy Lacrosse Camp. In his spare time, Godino has also worked as a private lacrosse tutor, working with players to help improve their physical and technical skills. 

Godino was a four-year starter and three-year captain at Manhattan College, where he played in the midfield. He tallied 85 career points on 55 goals and 30 assists, and snagged 61 career ground balls. He graduated in May of 2015 with a bachelor’s degree in Physical Education. In high school, Godino was a Newark Star Ledger Third Team All-State lacrosse selection at Summit, leading his team to a school record 68-game winning streak and back-to-back New Jersey State Championships. 

“During his two years at Bard College, Coach Godino has proven himself to be a tireless worker both on the field as well as the recruiting trail,” said Kear. “We are thrilled to have a guy with such high character and energy joining the staff.  Here at Skidmore, we pride ourselves on our positivity and creativity and I think Marcel is going to fit in perfectly to the way we like to do things.” “There is no doubt about his leadership ability, earning Captain for three straight years at Division I Manhattan College.  He is the guy who is always doing things the right way, whether or not anyone is looking.  I believe he is going to bring his own brand of lacrosse to the offensive side of the ball this year for us and we are ecstatic to get going with this year’s group and see how far we can go together.” 

Godino, originally from New Jersey, currently resides in Saratoga Springs. His brother, Jules, played lacrosse and was a team captain at the United States Naval Academy.
