Pick a word. Extraordinary. Spectacular. Dominant. Perfection. Champion. Any of them apply to the four high school athletic programs that have risen above the pack this fall.
There are more than 1,000 varsity teams that compete on Long Island each fall striving to be the best at what they do. But only a precious few reach the pinnacle.
Four programs stood above the rest throughout the season. Half Hollow Hills West, Garden City, Ward Melville and St. Anthony's dominated in most venues and raised multiple championship banners.
