PAIR OF BLUE DEVILS EARN MEDALS AT BRENTWOOD FENCING TOURNEY ...

Huntington junior Haileigh Smith and senior Ally Kustera captured medals in the sabre competition at the Brentwood Holiday Tournament, an invitation-only affair that drew hundreds of the top Long Island fencers representing teams from across the metro New York area.

The Blue Devils gathered their gear at Jack Abrams STEM Magnet School at 6:45 a.m. before boarding their bus to Brentwood. They returned home many hours after the sun had set for the day. But the medals made the long day worth it.

What exactly is sabre? Here’s how the Team USA website describes it:

“‘Saber fencing is like Formula 1 racing,’ said U.S. Olympic men’s saber fencer Daryl Homer. ‘It’s aggressive, fast and requires split-second decision making.’ Each point is over in a matter of seconds as the two combatants lunge at each other with swords honed in on making a hit tracked by an electronic system. Footwork on the competition strip is quick. And lunges are often accompanied by loud shouts in both men’s and women’s competitions.”

The two Blue Devil medalists are clearly and undeniably among Long Island’s finest in sabre, which along with epee and foil, make up fencing’s three disciplines, which are all contested in the Summer Olympic Games.

Ms. Kustera placed sixth in sabre and Ms. Smith grabbed eighth. They are both notable achievements considering the sabre field numbered 42 and the quality of the competitors was first rate.

“Brentwood is an individual annual tournament where fencers go through a preliminary pool round where they are then ranked by how they performed and then begin direct eliminations, which are 15 touch bouts,” Kustera explained. “The winner moves on and the bracket continues.

Smith was thrilled for her teammate. “It’s incredible for Ally because it’s her senior year and it’s nice to close the Brentwood chapter of her fencing career on a high note,” the junior said. “As far as the tournament itself, I had a lot of fun meeting people from around Long Island and what happened makes me optimistic about the tournaments to come.”

It was 5:30pm last night. I had finished at the mission and was getting ready to go the wrapping night at Huntington Assembly. I had a few minutes between so I decided to do a little decorating at our house across the way.

I went to throw something outside in the trash and a little old honda was idling in the driveway, parked with a mom, grandma and little boy around 3 years old. I went over to see how I could help them or what they needed.

The mom was looking and pointing to the Christmas trees that we had standing in our parking lot. They were donated by Huntington Manor FD Some really nice, live trees that Lisa Jamison from Family Service League had dropped off to us

"How much are the trees?" she asked. "They're free!" I told her.
"Free?" she said? And she started to cry. "My little boy has been asking, "Where is my Christmas tree?" every day and we don't have money to be a real or a fake tree. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!" she said. And I went to get some string to tie it on the car.

After we tied it on. I asked her if they needed some lights and ornaments for it. Her mom said, "Yes. How much are they?" I said, "They're free too." and she started to cry. Then I started to cry. and soon we were all just in the parking lot crying and watching the little boy dance around, happy about his tree and Christmas.

I went inside and was able to give her lights, ornaments, a wreath and some table decorations thanks to GENEROUS DONORS who have brought their BEAUTIFUL CHRISTMAS decorations to share with our community.

This is just one story...the love that has been shared this season is amazing and we thank you for helping us to share moments like this with some beautiful families. Thank you for all the beautiful decorations that have blessed literally hundreds of families. We appreciate your kindness! Merry Christmas!

🎅Please put the foster youth of suffolk county on your gift list and make their holiday brighter!🎅 Also please copy and paste to share this far and wide. On your page and any groups you are a member of. We are collecting for the youth in out of home placements in the Suffolk County Child Welfare System, please help give them a great holiday season. Our youth range in ages from newborn to 21 and varying ethnic backgrounds. We have sibling groups that range from 2 with our largest at 12. Last year we were able to present gifts to over 500 children, we are hoping to double or triple that number. There are 4 ways that you can help: 1) use this link which is updated everyday for gifts that youth themselves have asked for. Suffolk DSS Foster Youth - Amazon Holiday Gift List - https://www.amazon.com/registries/holiday/3FSGYK3SCRZYF/ Delivery is to our Suffolk DSS office 3455 Veterans Memorial Hwy; Ronkonkoma, NY 11779: Attention Sandra Davidson. 2) adopt a family, purchase gifts for a family vs. individual gifts listed on the amazon link; text me, Sandra Davidson, Chief Deputy Commissioner Suffolk County DSS. 631-829-0535. 3) donations of youth items that you believe a youth would like; to include gift certificates... anything can be sent to or dropped off to: Suffolk DSS office 3455 Veterans Memorial Hwy; Ronkonkoma, NY 11779: Attention Sandra Davidson. 4) copy and paste this list so others can participate. (If you click share only the gift list will show up). The gratitude that youth and families had last year is indescribable, most youth involved in our system get hand me downs or the weight of purchasing what they need vs. a gift weighs heavily on their minds...this gives them an opportunity to have normative experiences. I thank you ahead of time for your support. Happy Holidays!
