Her older brother, Griffin Rock, was a star football and lacrosse player at Bay Shore, and last spring received the...Read more »
St. Anthony's entered the season with little experience and lost a few players to the U.S. Soccer Academy, but has lots of talent. The talent is coming to the surface and the Friars are quickly evolving into an excellent team.

Brendan Reardon and Joe Busuttil...Read more »

There are 27 undefeated public school football teams on Long Island, some of them pure chalk and some of them pure surprises. But after Week 3, they all have visions of the Long Island Championship dancing in their heads. How realistic are those dreams? We’ll know a lot more at this time next week because...Read more »
