1. WARD MELVILLE BOYS FENCING

Ward Melville won its 158th consecutive dual meet in the Long Island championship earlier this month. It is the third longest winning streak in Long Island high school sports history. The Patriots (17-0) beat Garden City, 14-13, to win their 10th consecutive Long Island title.

2. WARD MELVILLE GIRLS FENCING

The Patriots handed Great Neck South its first loss of the season in a 14-3 win in the Long Island championship. Ward Melville improved to 17-0 and won its 14th title in 15 years.

3. EAST ISLIP GIRLS BOWLING

The Redmen won their second consecutive county crown as Melissa Mavrich rolled a 1,281 series and Lauren Christie added a 1,265 series. East Islip will represent Suffolk at the state championships in Rochester, March 4-5.

4. AMITYVILLE BOYS TRACK

Emmanuel Oguntoye qualified for the state championship in both the long jump and the triple jump. Oguntoye won the long jump with a 22-foot, 11-inch mark and the triple jump, flying 47 feet, 4 ¼ inches at the Suffolk State Qualifier. Alijah Benymon also qualified for the championships, scheduled for March 4 at Ocean Breeze Athletic Facility in Staten Island, with a 45 foot, 4 ¼ inch flight in the triple jump.

5. ST. ANTHONY’S GIRLS TRACK

Halle Hazzard had the top 55 meter (6.94) and 300 (39.07) time on Long Island. Those times put her in prime position for state gold in both races. Alyssa Yeboah-Kodie had the top 55-meter hurdle time (8.20) on Long Island.

6. BALDWIN GIRLS BASKETBALL

Having earned the top seed in the Nassau Class AA playoffs, the Bruins have been on a bye and haven’t played this week. There’s no denying this team’s ceiling, and a trip to the state tournament is realistic.

7. MASSAPEQUA GYMNASTICS

Gillian Murphy exhibited the dominance she’s had all season, winning the all-around (36.15), vault (9.35), uneven bars (8.8) and floor exercise (9.325) as the Chiefs capped their 10-0 regular season with the Nassau team championship. Massapequa clinched the win on the floor exercise, where Emily Corso and Tayla Quinn each posted a 9.1.

8. LONG ISLAND LUTHERAN BOYS BASKETBALL

The Crusaders had no problem with Brooklyn Law & Tech, registering a 78-37 victory. Chris Coalmon and Brandon Jacobs led the way with 16 points each. Crusaders are off until next weekend’s LuHi Postseason Invitational.

9. WANTAGH WRESTLING

The Warriors crowned three Nassau champions, freshman Josiah Encarnacion (99 pounds), junior Justin Vines (126) and junior Jonathan Loew (160) to capture the team title. They had 14 All-Nassau wrestlers.

10. ROCKY POINT WRESTLING

The Eagles swept the Suffolk dual meet and tournament titles behind 113-pound champion Anthony Sciotto III and 120-pound runnerup Anthony Cirillo. The Eagles scored 142.5 points to win the Suffolk title.

On the cusp: East Islip boys bowling, Half Hollow Hills swimming, St. Anthony’s boys track, Long Beach wrestling.
