The undefeated record is no more.

Shoreham-Wading River joined the ranks of high school softball teams that have a mark against them in the “L” column Saturday.

Payton Capes-Davis made quite a splash — in more ways than one — in her introduction to the 2,000-meter steeplechase on Wednesday.

Talk about hitting the ground running. Eric Cunha ran and ran and ran — and then he ran some more.

Cunha wasn’t allowed the luxury of easing gently into the spring season. In his first track and field meet since competing in a national indoor meet in March, the Riverhead High School senior ran in four events — totaling four miles — and walked away a winner in each of them Wednesday.

It’s not something that is seen every day, an athlete from one team cheering on an athlete from another team, a rival team at that.

But there was Kait Butterfield of the Bishop McGann-Mercy Diocesan High School girls track and field team urging on Mattituck’s Melanie Pfennig during a race Tuesday. The two seniors are living proof that rivals can be good friends.
