1. MASSAPEQUA GIRLS SOCCER You can crown the Massapequa girls the Fall BIG 10 champions. Melanie Hingher, Skylar Vitiello, Rebecca White, Bianca Furci and Hope Breslin became the five members of the Chiefs to play on all three state championship winning teams during the current Massapequa dynasty. Mikayla Pugliese scored the tying goal and Breslin tallied the winner in a 3-1 win over Baldswinville, as Massapequa became the first Class AA soccer team in New York, girls or boys, to win three straight state titles.

2. NEWFIELD FOOTBALL The Wolverines finished 12-0 to complete the finest football season in the school’s 58-year history. They captured the Long Island Class II championship with a 41-33 win over MacArthur. They set the Suffolk record for points scored in a season with 518. Quarterback Ryan Klemm threw for a school record 31 touchdowns and 2,441 yards. Halfback Elijah Riley scored 31 touchdowns and wide receiver Jelani Greene added 14.

3. CONNETQUOT GIRLS VOLLEYBALL Coach Justin Hertz led Connetquot to the school’s first-ever state volleyball championship in decisive fashion, having only dropped a single set at the state tournament in Glens Falls in November. A young core of Nicole Migliozzi, Mackenzie Cole, Cassandra Patsos and others will return next season with hopes of starting a dynasty.

4. SAYVILLE FOOTBALL Junior quarterback Jack Coan threw for 36 touchdowns and led Sayville to a 12-0 record and the Long Island Class III championship. The Golden Flashes beat previously unbeaten Plainedge, 59-15, as Coan rushed for three scores and passed for one. Junior halfback Ashton Bradley scored four touchdowns for Sayville in the title rout.

5. WHITMAN BOYS SOCCER The Wildcats (20-1-1) scored 12 goals in two games as they won the Class AA title, their first state championship in program history. Witman Hernandez had five goals and an assist upstate, and Michael Lorello had four goals.

6. ST. ANTHONY’S GIRLS SOCCER A dominant attack with multiple weapons proved too difficult to contain. Francesca Venezia, Kayla Arestivo, Sabrina Cristodero, Francesca Picicci, Miranda Ozimek and company guided the Friars to a 4-1 win over Christ the King to capture a second consecutive CHSAA state championship.

7. CHAMINADE BOYS SOCCER Chaminade defeated Canisius, 5-0, to win the CHSAA state title. The Flyers, who did not allow a shot on goal in either match in the state tournament, last won a state championship in 2010.

8. ST. ANTHONY’S BOYS CROSS COUNTRY The Friars placed fourth at the Nike Cross New York Regional Championship at Bowdoin Park in Wappingers Falls this weekend. Ryan Kutch finished 14th in 16:20.2. Ryan Dearie was 15th in 16:21.1.

9. SHOREHAM-WADING RIVER FOOTBALL The Wildcats have extended Long Island’s longest current win streak to 24 games with a 35-7 win over Locust Valley to claim their second straight Class IV title. Halfback Chris Rosati scored four touchdowns in the championship win.

10. SACHEM NORTH BOYS VOLLEYBALL The Arrows won the Long Island championship and reached the state tournament final for the second straight year, finishing the season 19-1, and winning 57 of the 63 sets.
