In the searing heat and humidity, Jordan Fonseca turned the spin cycle on high.
Fonseca’s athleticism and dazzling runs, complete with razor-sharp cuts and lightning-quick spins off tacklers, dazzled on Friday night as he helped Greenport/Southold/Mattituck’s high school football team to a season-opening 40-0 blowout of Bishop McGann-Mercy at Harold T. Murray Memorial Field in Riverhead.
Jeff Trelewicz didn’t hesitate for a moment.
When Bishop McGann-Mercy athletic director Melissa Edwards asked Trelewicz if he would like to become head coach of the high school’s girls volleyball team, he didn’t need to think it over.
The playing surface has perhaps the biggest impact in field hockey than any other sport. Whether that playing surface is grass or field turf makes a tremendous difference in how the game is played. READ
I have often joked that I am well qualified to give a seminar to sports reporters on how to cover the blowout game. You know, a game that is basically over minutes after it began. READ
While Riverhead braced for Hurricane Hermine, it first had to deal with another hurricane — the one from North Babylon. Those Bulldogs pack quite a punch, too. READ

Race day started early, especially for two Brooklyn runners, Angel Confesor and Felipe Garcia, who shared the Sunday morning drive to eastern Long Island for the Jamesport First Department’s 18th annual Sound to Bay 10K. Garcia said they were on the road by 6:20 a.m.
In keeping with the early-bird theme, both men were the first two finishers in the 10-kilometer race, with Confesor winning for the second year in a row. He reached the finish line at South Jamesport Beach in 36 minutes, 24 seconds, well behind his winning time of 35:33.9 last year. Garcia was well behind him. Despite getting lost on the course — he figures those missteps added about a minute to his time — Garcia still took second place in 39:04. Jose Vlloa was third in 40:21.
Angel Camarillo’s high school varsity soccer career had started so promisingly last year when, as a sophomore, he started the first two games of the season for Riverhead.
And then, just like that, his season came to an unexpected, sudden end.
