A group of Long Island High School students are in for a holiday treat. Farmingdale High School students received a grant which funded the resurfacing of their track which is said to be at no cost to taxpayers. Legislator Dave Mejias was involved in the process and attended the ceremony. School officials say the eight year old track was in need of resurfacing and in came in time for their new season. The damage to the field was due to weather conditions and school administrators say it was in serious need of replacement.
The new state of the art facility is said to give the Farmingdale Dalers a more competitive season and an extra advantage to receive athletic scholarships.
