Getting tired of CHSAA finals between St. Anthony’s and Chaminade? Too bad. The two rivals will go head-to-head in a championship match in a seventh varsity sport this season on Monday, when they square off in the CHSAA tennis final at Hofstra. St. Anthony’s, the No. 1 seed led by defending CHSAA singles champion John D'Alessandro, went undefeated in league play and knocked off No. 4 Kellenberg...Read more »
Things have gone according to plan for 7-0 Kellenberg this season, even though the plan itself has changed almost daily. Firebirds’ boys volleyball coach John Heitner said he’s been able to “open up the playbook,” this season, thanks to his team’s talent-stacked roster that so far has lived up to high preseason expectations. “There was a lot of hype before the season, and we’re off to a fantastic...Read more »

1. Tim Muller, Chaminade
After Chaminade’s win against Manhasset last week, coach Jack Moran said, “People sitting in the stands look for stats, but our kids know they get to play on offense because we’re really good on the other end.”

Losing to Chaminade for the second straight year has its benefits for the West Islip boys lacrosse team.
After Saturday’s 9-4 home defeat, coach Scott Craig said the Flyers might have been just a little too much to handle for the younger, less experienced Lions.
“They’re the No. 2 team in the nation and their defense is very large, imposing and physical,” Craig said. “It’s one of the...Read more »
Matchup: No. 2 Chaminade (2-0) vs. No. 17 West Islip (1-0) Game time: Saturday, noon, West Islip
It's as big a matchup as a non-league boys lacrosse game in March can be, and West Islip, according to its head coach, will be without its best player.
Senior midfielder Nick Aponte re-aggravated an upper-body injury during the third quarter of West Islip's 14-6 win over Connetquot on Wednesday...Read more »
