Hard as it may be to believe, one of the few prizes to elude Katherine Lee during her glorious track and field career has been an indoor state title. Saturday was her last chance to change that.

Although Lee didn’t walk away with a winner’s medal, she earned a pair of consolation prizes: nice looking runner-up federation and public school medals that will make a nice addition to her trophy case. READ

It didn’t bring him a gold medal, but Rickie Casazza turned a scary moment into a golden moment for him in the state winter track championships Saturday.

The Shoreham-Wading River high jumper had missed his first two attempts at 6 feet, 4 inches. Then the senior cleared the height on his third and final try.

Matyka appeared on the path to a Cinderella story. The Riverhead junior was a wild-card entry to the New York State Public High School Athletic Association Championships.
