SUFFOLK COUNTY DIVISION IV FINAL | WILDCATS 47, KNIGHTS 10
The Shoreham-Wading River Wildcats, dressed in their navy blue uniforms, looked all business as they marched solemnly across the field toward their sideline before the game. Leading the way were four Wildcats. Aaron Harley-Rey and Danny Hughes carried a blue banner with “54” printed on it in gold, and Jimmy Puckey and Kevin Cutinella held the late Tom Cutinella’s retired No. 54 jersey.
Not only have the Wildcats clung to the memory of their former teammate, but they honored it Saturday by securing a place in team history. (more…)

It might have happened over a month ago, but Annie Harris and Shania Daniel still aren’t mad that their cross-country season ended without them finishing their last race.
In fact, they made the choice not to finish it. Instead, they helped out a fallen runner find emergency help. (more…)
