1. ST. DOMINIC BASEBALL

We have a new No. 1. The CHSAA is very deep on the diamond and the Bayhawks are the regular-season kingpins. Pitching and defense produced a three-game sweep of highly-regarded St. John the Baptist led by sophomore Kyle Young, who tossed a no-hitter in a 2-0 win.

2. MANHASSET GIRLS LACROSSE
