Somewhere, deep in a faraway corner of Miller Place, are images that would be hard to believe if seen. If uncovered, they would need to be examined and scanned for authenticity. Even then, there are many who still would refuse to believe they were real.
“They’re pictures of Tiana and I coming in dead last at field day,” Talia Guevara, half of Miller Place’s talented twins, said. “I was not...Read more »
Chaminade can feel it. They can see it. They can even taste it.
After winning both the cross country and winter track CHSAA intersectional championships, the Flyers are one season and one more intersectional title away from what would undoubtedly be their finest achievement — the triple crown.
Chaminade hasn’t won the most prestigious CHSAA title across all three seasons since the 1997-1998...Read more »
Chaminade standout midfielder Sam Bonafede was asked Friday afternoon, the day before the season opener against Ward Melville, who the Flyers' starting goalie would be.
He didn’t know for sure.
“It could be one of four guys,” Bonafede said. “But that’s because they’re all pretty good.”
Matt Isnardi proved how good he is on Saturday. The senior goalie, who was behind Dan Fowler...Read more »
Pat McCormick likes to call Brian Lang the “X-factor.”
"That's the best way to describe him," McCormick said of his new Hicksville lacrosse teammate. "He could do a lot on the field. That's why he's going to Ohio State. He could be one of the best middies in the conference this season, if not the county."

And Lang didn’t...Read more »
Brian Cannon wants to be remembered after this season as one of the best lacrosse players to graduate from Northport.
And there’s a specific way the senior attacker would like to achieve that.
“Northport has not won a county championship in a while,” Cannon said. “It’s all about helping the team get to that goal. And by doing well as a team, I think after that, my own individual success...Read more »
If James Sullivan is even half as good at racking up points as he is at taking faceoffs, Garden City might be in for another special season.
Actually, considering Sullivan’s mark of nearly 75 percent at the faceoff “X” last season, a shooting percentage of less than half of that would be fine, he said.
The junior, who has served as the team’s faceoff specialist since eighth grade, is...Read more »
It was a goal Matthew Cecchini will never forget -- ever.
After all, it put Manhasset in position to win its first state hockey title in the Mixed Open/Division.
“I was able to get a shot on net from the top of the circle, and to see it go in was an amazing feeling,'' said Cecchini, who scored 30 seconds into overtime to give the Indians a 7-6 state semifinal victory over Jamestown...Read more »
Things are a lot different now for Sachem North’s Katie Michta. Last year, the senior was sitting on the sideline, nursing a heel injury that wiped out most of her winter season. This year, she’s made up for that lost time in a big way.
Two weeks after winning the New York State 1,500 meter race walk championship, Michta finished second in the one mile race walk at the New Balance Indoor Nationals,...Read more »

The announcement came a little prematurely. After word of Matt Brisson's intent to retire after this season hit the Internet and spread quickly Friday morning, the coach discussed it with his team.
After 30 years of teaching health and physical education at Sachem East, and a sparkling decade of coaching its girls basketball team, Brisson had decided to call it a career.
The timing of...Read more »
