Big 10: Hauppauge wrestlers climbing the ladder

1. GLENN WRESTLING (remain at 1) The Knights capped an undefeated Suffolk League VI schedule with a 59-3 win at Miller Place. They earned victories over Commack and East Islip B at their own dual-meet tournament. Against Commack, Vinny Punzone (112 pounds) pinned his opponent in the second period, while Kenny Massa (103) won by technical fall extending the school’s dual-meet winning streak to 57. The two-time defending champions will host the League VI tournament at 9:30 a.m. Saturday.

2. HALF HOLLOW HILLS WEST BOYS BASKETBALL (remain at 2) Beat the best of Suffolk League IV last week, knocking off stubborn Bellport, Copiague and Deer Park.

3. EAST ISLIP BOYS BOWLING (remain at 3) The team finished 14-0 in league and conference play. They have a 37-match winning streak and average 1,104 per game and 3,649 per series, both state records. John Knieriemen is tops in the county with a 230 average, Eddy Tuskan is fourth at 223 and Bobby Martin sixth at 223.

(remain at 4) Another year, another undefeated dual-meet season for Half Hollow Hills, which ended the season with a 96-85 win over Ward Melville. This marks the fourth straight year Hills has had a perfect regular season. The four-time defending county champions are led by Long Island’s top diver, Ryan Savit, who scored a personal-best 286.13 against Deer Park/North Babylon.

(up from 6) The Eagles beat Sayville and Kings Park to win the Suffolk League V dual-meet title. Against Kings Park, Nick Mauriello upended All-State performer Max Soria, 9-2, at 112 pounds. They won the Newburgh Duals with wins over Arlington, Chaminade, Warwick Valley and Valley Central, 49-25, in the final. Chance Menendez was team MVP after earning three pins.

6. LONGWOOD BOYS BASKETBALL (down from 5) The Lions remained undefeated in Suffolk League I play at 10-0, with two tough victories behind guards Darien Davis and Tajric Boggs. They outlasted upset-minded Ward Melville, 67-65, and beat Brentwood, 86-74.

(remain at 7) The undefeated Patriots (11-0) make their debut in the BIG 10 after a 19-9 win over Newfield. They have not been challenged this season. Christal Nworjih went 2-0 in epee for Ward Melville, which will play Commack (10-1) Thursday for the league title.

8. NORTH BABYLON GIRLS BASKETBALL (remain at 8) UConn-bound Bria Hartley is dominating. She had a triple-double with 27 points, 12 rebounds and 10 steals in a 60-32 win over Francis Lewis (Queens) in the Under Armour Classic. Katrina Plummer scored 19 points as the Bulldogs beat Half Hollow Hills East, 85-23.

9. EAST ISLIP GIRLS BOWLING (remain at 9) Lena Sorrentino leads Long Island with a 215 average and Tara Ernst rolls for a 203 average, two pins better than teammate Nikki Wilson. They’re the top three seeds in the county tournament. Islip’s Alex Devries is the only other girl averaging at least 200. The Redmen have a team average of 1,004.

10. GREAT NECK SOUTH BOYS SWIMMING (remain at 10) Great Neck South, having completed its second consecutive undefeated season, is primed to repeat as Nassau champions.
