1. CAREY FOOTBALL

The Seahawks earn the right to be BIG 10 champions this fall. Carey is the first Nassau team to have back-to-back 12-0 seasons. The Seahawks extended Long Island's longest current win streak to 24 games, and did it with a blend of power and finesse in a 41-7 thrashing of East Islip to win their second straight Long Island Class II championship. The defense, led by linebacker, Conor Colasurdo, held East Islip to 13 yards rushing.

2. MASSAPEQUA GIRLS SOCCER

The Chiefs, winners of 11 of the last 12 county championships, made school history by repeating as state champions. Meghan McCabe and Melanie Hingher anchored a dominant back line, Olivia Stegner controlled the midfield, Mackenzie Palmer and Hope Breslin generated offense, and Cara Gallagher and Rebecca White didn't allow a goal as the Chiefs outscored opponents 13-0 in the playoffs.

3. COMMACK BOYS SOCCER

Behind midfielder Anthony Izzo's two goals, the Cougars captured their first state title since 1995. Goalkeeper Ryan Sinnott and defenders Ryan Nigro, Peter Brennan, Josh Eisler and Noah Gittleman did not allow a goal in five November games. Midfielder Justin Cebollero was voted League I MVP by the coaches association for the second straight season.

4. LAWRENCE FOOTBALL

Halfback Jordan Fredericks scored four touchdowns and threw for another as Lawrence edged Sayville, 40-35, in another epic Long Island Class III championship. Melik Mavruk's 82-yard fumble return with 1:06 remaining was the game-winner. It was the third straight Class III title for the Golden Tornadoes, who are 35-1 over that span.

5. ST. ANTHONY'S BOYS CROSS COUNTRY

A second-place finish in the New York race at Nike Cross Regionals in Wappingers Falls Saturday qualified the Friars for Nike Cross Nationals, scheduled for Saturday in Portland, Oregon. Pat Tucker finished eighth in 16:06.9.

6. SACHEM NORTH BOYS VOLLEYBALL

Rob Steinberg had 47 assists and Dylan Missry had 36 kills to lead the Flaming Arrows (18-0) in their 3-1 win over McQuaid Jesuit (Rochester) in the NYSPHSAA Class A state championship match. The Flaming Arrows dropped just one set this season.

7. ST. ANTHONY'S GIRLS SOCCER

From Mackenzie Kober to the Venezia sisters to Sabrina Cristodero, the unbeaten Friars simply had too many weapons for defenses to contain and cruised to another state title. The defense, anchored by Kaitlin Loughren and Katrina Friedman, was just as solid as St. Anthony's outscored opponents 82-6. It was the 21st and final state title for coach Dave Prutting, who retires with a career record of 437-46-19.

8. SHOREHAM-WADING RIVER FOOTBALL

The Wildcats downed Roosevelt, 47-13, behind quarterback Danny Hughes and wide receiver Isreal Squires to capture the school's first Long Island Class IV championship. They finished a 12-0 season and earned the Rutgers Trophy given to Suffolk's best team. The defense was led by end Ethan Wiederkehr and linebackers Aaron Harley-Rey and Chris Rosati.

9. WARD MELVILLE GIRLS SWIMMING

The Patriots captured the school's 23rd straight Suffolk team championship with 301 points (runner-up Harborfields scored 250.5). Brittany Coughlin, Cassandra Willie, Casey Gavigan, Sarah Schoenfled and Katie Wang all qualified for state competition.

10. ST. ANTHONY'S GIRLS SWIMMING

The Friars enjoyed their fifth straight CHSAA championship and fifth consecutive undefeated season. Meghan Slattery earned MVP honors after she set the CHSAA record in the 50-yard freestyle in 24.22. Slattery also won the 100 freestyle.
