The Garden City Maroon girls golf team completed yet another undefeated season last week, finishing 10-0 in Conference II for its 11th straight conference championship. The team has won 106 straight conference matches with its last loss coming in 2003. After losing three of his top golfers to graduation, coach Reid Sclafani wasn’t sure how this year’s team would fare. The girls exceeded his expectations,...Read more »
Yes, I went throwback with the Destiny's Child "Say My Name" for the title. Got a request for another Beyonce-themed subject line on this, so we'll rock with it for another week. As always, suggestions and nominations are welcome. Shoot me an email or tweet at @StephenHaynes4.
And here are the girls who made us, well, write their names.

And here goes another batch of awesome – this week’s installment of Players of the Week. A tribute to the girls who made us “Ring the Alarm” and admire the way they’ve managed to “Upgrade” their teams. (For real, this might be the last week of the Beyonce theme. I’m running out of song titles to pun.)
As always, feel free to hit us up via e-mail or on Twitter (@StephenHaynes4 and @AlbaneseLaura)...Read more »
1. Garden City (6-0) They're at it again, silencing the doubts. The 6-0 start with wins over Manhasset and Massapequa earns them the top spot. 2. Manhasset (4-1) A week ago, the Indians looked a team capable of running the table. One loss doesn't change everything - certainly not a 10-9 defeat in overtime - but their standing does take a hit. 3. Farmingdale (4-0) The Dalers have quietly gone about...Read more »

Section XI coaches named Williams its Suffolk player of the year and Section VIII coaches declared Ricchiuti its Nassau player of the year, earning both senior girls basketball stars the highest honor either county has to offer....Read more »
