For Mepham’s Louis Hernandez, stepping onto the wrestling mat had become second nature. Hernandez had been cruising undefeated through his junior season last year before stepping into the gym at MacArthur. He left that Conference IV-A dual meet with a blemish on his record after being pinned by Mike Marrero in 3:40.
It was the last loss Hernandez would suffer before going on another dominant...Read more »
The stage was set at Seaford on Friday night.
For the second consecutive year, the dual meet between Seaford and Island Trees would crown a Conference IV-A champion. And for the second consecutive year, the meet came down to a match between Seaford’s James O’Hagan, the consensus top 285-pound wrestler in the state, and Island Trees Vinny Manna, one of the serious threats to O’Hagan’s reign...Read more »
The Long Beach way of playing boys ice hockey is very simple.
"We like to get the puck deep and get it behind the other team's defensemen," Marines' 16th year coach Joe Brand said. "Just forecheck real hard and take that puck back."
In other words, Long Beach plays the dump and chase game. And who can argue with that? The Marines (12-1-1) are currently in first place in the small school...Read more »
Sewanhaka District coach Katie Mosie said that back when she was on the high school gymnastics team in 2006, they maaaaay have beaten Plainview JFK once. Maybe.
"You should've seen our faces today when we won," Mosie said. "We were shocked...we had them check it again."
That's how hard it is to beat Plainview. Sewanhaka defeated Conference I's second place team Friday, 158.4-158.0,...Read more »
Earlier this season, Kellenberg boys basketball coach Jack McCutcheon asked Long Beach coach T.J. Burke how his team was doing.
The reason McCutcheon was reaching out to Burke was because the Marines had been through a lot with superstorm Sandy.
“I told him we got the gym back at Long Beach and we got new uniforms,” Burke said. “But that was about it.”
McCutcheon and the Firebirds...Read more »
Elmont used one spurt to get back into the game and another to blow it open.

A seven-point possession to close the third period sparked Harborfields to a 59-49 victory over Farmingdale in the first game of the Nassau-Suffolk Challenge Sunday at the Hicksville Athletic Center.
Robert Pecorelli hit a driving layup and was fouled, converting the three-point play. Then a Farmingdale player drew a technical foul for bouncing the ball high in frustration. Pecorelli sank...Read more »
Liam Walker is making a habit out of buzzer-beating shots. And that's been a good thing for the Southold boys' basketball team.
Walker’s coast-to-coast layup was the winning basket in the First Settlers’ 57-55 League VIII road win over Greenport Saturday.
Walker had previously delivered a game-winning layup with 1.9 seconds left that helped Southold defeat Pierson, 57-55, back on Dec....Read more »
