In many respects, Luke Kosmynka’s season has mirrored that of the Mattituck High School boys tennis team. Both knew they were going to be competitive, they just didn’t know how competitive.
Well, both have exceeded expectations. The Tuckers (10-2, 10-1), who lost several seniors to graduation, are tied with Southampton for the Suffolk County League VIII lead and Kosmynka could not have asked for a better season as the No. 2 singles player. He is a perfect 11-0. READ

Gabriel Romano did not have an opportunity to finish what he started, which was one gem of a game.
The Shoreham-Wading River senior righthander was disappointed that he was pulled after reaching the Suffolk County pitch limit of 105 with one out remaining in a Suffolk County League VI encounter at Bayport-Blue Point. (more…)
For Bishop McGann-Mercy, it was a case of double jeopardy.
Not only were the Monarchs facing one of the best softball pitchers on Long Island in Allie Stanya, they were playing against one of the finest teams in the state in Babylon. READ
Oh what a relief Joe Marti has been for Bishop McGann-Mercy this young baseball season.
