SAYVILLE GOLDEN FLASHES

Coach: Tiffany Rowan

2015 record: 18-4

Key players

Ally Bricker 1B Jr.

Hailey Comiskey OF Sr.

Katie Wallace 2B Sr.

Lyndsey Shaw SS So.

Nicole Farese OF Sr.

Outlook: Sayville returns the middle infield duo of Shaw and Wallace. Wallace led the Golden Flashes with a .473 average and added 27 runs and 32 RBIs. Shaw has started since seventh grade and uses her great arm strength to take away base hits. Bricker saves her infielders errors with the scoop at first while hitting .433 and Comiskey commands the outfield.

ISLIP BUCCANEERS

Coach: Dennis McSweeney

2015 record: 17-5

Key players

Taylor Larson C Sr.

Ginger Sherry CF Sr.

Alexis Freudenberg 3B Sr.

Maddie Feddersen P Jr.

Sam Seeger SS Jr.

Outlook: Islip returns seven of nine starters from last year’s county finalist, led by two-time all county selection and four-year starter Taylor Larson. Sherry, the team leader in runs and steals, is another spark plug.

COMSEWOGUE WARRIORS

Coach: Jason Surdi

2015 record: 10-9

Key players

Emily Whitman SS So.

Taylor Murray 3B Sr.

Alexa Murray P Fr.

Lauren Erhard 1B/P Jr.

Erica Hickey 2B Jr.

Outlook: The Warriors return their entire infield after a 10-win season in which they qualified for the playoffs for the first time in 20 years, Surdi said. The 1-2 punch of Whitman and Taylor Murray lead the offense. Surdi called Whitman “the motor that drives the Comsewogue offense.”

ROCKY POINT EAGLES

2015 record: 7-11

Key players

Paige Csikortos 2B Sr.

Karisa Lawrence P Jr.

Juliana Vosilla C Jr.

Key players

Yesenia Paula CF Sr.
