Winning can be so sweet.
Winning a second year in a row is so much sweeter.
Just ask Riverhead High School senior Curtis Flippen, who won the Suffolk County Division II triple jump championship for the second consecutive year at Centereach High School Monday afternoon.
Her formal first name is Isabella, although just about everyone calls her Izzy, which Izzy Sorgi prefers.
The Bishop McGann-Mercy Diocesan High School softball pitcher can be called something else: fearless.
Top-seeded Shoreham-Wading River, behind Zach White’s three-hitter, defeated rival Rocky Point, 5-0, in a loser’s bracket game in the Suffolk County Class B baseball tournament on Saturday in Shoreham. It was White’s second playoff shutout win.
Kevin Cutinella scored on a pass from behind the cage with 1 minute 49 seconds remaining to snap a tie and lift Shoreham-Wading River to an 8-7 victory over Eastport-South Manor in a Suffolk County Class B boys lacrosse quarterfinal on Saturday.
Steve Zoumas held his award high at the top of the race winner’s podium as the champagne sprayed. READ
Commit errors against the Center Moriches High School softball team at your own risk.
Center Moriches is too good a team to give extra outs to. The Red Devils will punish teams that don’t play a clean game, as Bishop McGann-Mercy was reminded on Wednesday.
The high school tennis players in the Suffolk County Division IV Individual Tournament on Monday had a lot more than just their opponents to worry about. Another factor was at play in a big way: the wind.
After a frustrating afternoon of fighting a misfire in his NASCAR Modified, Shawn Solomito of Center Moriches and his team rebounded in the 40-lap main event on Grand Opening Night at Riverhead Raceway on Saturday. Solomito claimed the victory with a late-race pass of Tom Rogers Jr. of Riverhead.
Solomito, the 2012 NASCAR Modified champion at Riverhead, spent 29 laps shadowing Rogers and biding his time. He saw an opening under Rogers as the duo exited a corner on Lap 29. By the time they raced into the first turn to start the 30th lap, Solomito had reclaimed the lead for good.
