WEST ISLIP

Last Season: 8-1-3 (12-1-3), lost to Smithtown East on penalty kicks in county championship game

Until a Class AA county championship game is played without West Islip, they will remain the favorite in what is the most stacked league in Suffolk this season. Seeking a fourth straight trip to the county title game, the Lions return 11 seniors and 18 players overall from a team...

Remember the Colts?

There is one simple question fueling the Half Hollow Hills West girl’s soccer season: “How will we be remembered?”

Although the slogan applies to the entire team, it’s dedicated to a group of five seniors - Lauren Casadonte, Tiarra Barbarito, Jackie DiMaria, Lauren Pabisch, and Bryce Kristall – who are concluding their four-year stay as varsity starters.
