Final Spring Big 10 for 2016

1. WANTAGH BASEBALL. The Warriors earned the Spring Big 10 title. They defeated Williamsville East, 6-5, in the state Class A championship five hours after knocking off previously undefeated Queensbury, 2-1, in the semifinal of the state tournament in Binghamton. Junior Jimmy Joyce tossed a one-hitter in the semifinal and hit the winning, two-out home run in the final to give Wantagh the win. Senior Bobby Hegarty threw all nine innings in the state final for the school’s second state title and first since 1998.

2. HUNTINGTON BOYS TRACK. Not only is Huntington the best team on Long Island, an argument can be made that they are the best team in the state and, after the state championships in Cicero, that’s hard to argue. Huntington, according to scoring, won the state meet and nearly doubled up the field. Infinite Tucker won the 110-meter hurdles, 400 hurdles, and anchored the winning 4 x 400-meter relay.

3. COLD SPRING HARBOR BOYS LACROSSE. Cold Spring Harbor (18-1) made it back-to-back state Class C championships with an impressive 15-4 rout of Penn Yan in the title game at Middletown. The share-the-wealth offense was led by Riley Cox, Matt Licciardi, Ian Laviano and Taylor Strough.

4. GARDEN CITY GIRLS LACROSSE. The Trojans and their 17 seniors capped a dominant season with a 16-5 statement win over Yorktown in the state Class B championship. Katie Muldoon (seven goals, three assists) and Brooke McDaid (two goals, eight assists) made big contributions during the state tournament.

5. SACRED HEART SOFTBALL. The Spartans captured their first CHSAA league and state championships in program history. Claire O’Brien tossed five shutout innings in a 6-0 semifinal win over Cardinal Spellman, and then allowed one run in a 4-1 victory over Nardin Academy to win the state title. Marissa Braito went 3-for-4 in the final.

6. SYOSSET BOYS TENNIS. Syosset capped a 17-0 season with a 5-2 win over Roslyn in the Nassau championship. The Braves top two players, Neel Rajesh and Kabir Rajpal, joined forces to finish third in the doubles state tournament.

7. WARD MELVILLE BOYS LACROSSE. Ward Melville (18-4) entered the Suffolk playoffs as a No. 4 seed but wound up winning county and Long Island titles before losing a heartbreaker to unbeaten Victor, 7-5, in the state final. John Day led a terrific defense that was backed by goaltender D.J. Kellerman.

8. MOUNT SINAI MUSTANGS. A stalwart defense led by goalie Hannah Van Middelem and defender Emily Vengilio led the Mustangs to their second straight state Class C title with a 12-3 win over Skaneateles. Meaghan Tyrrell had six goals and two assists in the tourney.

9. SACHEM EAST GIRLS TRACK. The Flaming Arrows dominated the Suffolk Division I championship this season, scoring 142 points, the second-highest point total in Division I meet history. The title was their fourth consecutive, encompassing cross country, indoor, and outdoor track.

10. SYOSSET GIRLS GOLF. Malini Rudra shot a 3-over-par 74 at Middle Island Country Club to lead the undefeated Braves to a third-consecutive Long Island Championship.
