And we present to you the last regular-season installment of Players of the Week. Yes, the Nassau Class B tournament is underway and there were some big performances on Monday, but those will be included in next week’s batch.
Here we’ve got the independent women who rang the alarm and made us check up on their performances. (That’s three song title puns in one sentence. I think that’s about...Read more »
<plays Vitamin C's “Graduation.”> There. Did that set the mood for you? There’s only one week (and like, a handful of games) left in the regular season, and the close of this school year is coming up FAST. That also means there’s only a few editions of Girls Who Run This World left. If you think I’ve forgotten any great performances, email me. I tried to spread the love a little this week,...Read more »
During the first practice, after Glenn Lavey took over the Herricks girls lacrosse team two years ago, he assured the players that they would make the playoffs. And they all laughed at him.
This was a group deficient in depth, skill and experience, and one playoff appearance in program history had them a little short on optimism.

Today’s interview comes courtesy of Sam Croston, Mt. Sinai’s JV goalie who played in her first varsity game just last week against Kings Park. She’s fun, y’all, and the undefeated Mustangs are no joke this year....Read more »
Let’s start things off right: Shoutout to Sayville’s Liz Koehler and Gina Palumbo, seniors who scored their first goals of the year on senior day. Way to be clutch (and make it memorable). Now, off to the races… Vanessa Costantino, West Islip – I wanna stick that extra ‘n’ in her last name every time. Ms. Costantino scored the winner with eight seconds left in the first OT in the Lions game win...Read more »
As always, email me or @StephenHaynes4. Now, let's get right to it.
Katherine Zisis, Roslyn: In one of the more touching sports-related scenes you’ll see, Zisis, a senior with pulmonary stenosis and development disability, scored a goal in her first varsity appearance on Saturday. Zisis has been the Bulldogs’ manager for four years and, in Roslyn’s last home game this season, she was cleared...Read more »
When the Tewaaraton Award watch list was paired down to 25 last week, Duke attack Kerrin Maurer was stunned to see her name.
“It was a dream just to play in college, but I never thought I would make that list, let alone in my sophomore year,” the former St. Anthony’s star said of being a candidate for the award given to the NCAA lacrosse players of the year. “It’s a huge honor, but definitely...Read more »
