6. LINDENHURST FOOTBALL

The Bulldogs won the Long Island Class II title and finished 12-0 behind a sturdy defense led by junior Jack Winey, who earned Newsday’s Rob Burnett Defensive Player of the Year Award. Virginia-bound Sunkonmi Agunloye and All-Long Island first teamer Will Ruckert were also keys in that stingy defense.

7. SACHEM EAST FIELD HOCKEY

Sparked by a strong midfield, including two-time Newsday Player of the Year Kristen Shanahan, who led Long Island with 40 points, the Flaming Arrows captured their second straight Suffolk and Long Island Class A crowns. The defense was also dominant, posting 15 shutouts.

10. SHOREHAM-WADING RIVER FIELD HOCKEY

The Wildcats defeated Spencerport, 2-0, to win the state Class A championship, and their first state title in program history. Shoreham-Wading River only allowed multiple goals twice all season, led by a tough backline and Alison Devall in goal.
