The Port Jefferson girls soccer team wasn’t beaten by Miley Cyrus, but the actress/singer sure didn’t help.
While some of the Port Jefferson players attended a Cyrus concert at Jones Beach, the Royals were left with only eight players for their Town of Brookhaven Summer League small school semifinal against Shoreham-Wading River on Friday evening.
It wasn’t enough.

For the record, the Shoreham-Wading River summer girls soccer team doesn’t have two players wearing No. 9 uniforms. It may seem that way sometimes, but that’s only because Megan Kelly can appear to be in two places at the same time.
The truth is, Kelly doesn’t have a clone on the field with her. She just does a lot of running and covers a lot of ground. (more…)

This has been a summer of basketball for Courtney Clasen, and a busy one, at that.
A player of unquestioned athleticism, Clasen has been known for being more of an athlete who plays basketball than a basketball player. So, this summer she went about working on that by playing for an Amateur Athletic Union team, the Long Island Renegades, and seeing the larger basketball world outside of Suffolk County. An intensive schedule saw the Renegades play close to 30 games (including 13 this past week) while traveling around the country and playing in places like Washington, D.C., Chicago and Orlando.
That’s a lot of basketball, and it was beneficial to the Shoreham-Wading River High School senior. (more…)

In her travels across the country playing soccer, Alex Kuhnle had met big-time stars before. Mostly, though, the encounters were brief and in a group.
As a freshman at Shoreham-Wading River last year, Kuhnle made a big impact on varsity as a striker. A quick, skilled player, Kuhnle has already generated interest from Division I schools like UCLA and the University of Miami, Shoreham coach Adrian Gilmore said. (more…)

The summer league roster for Shoreham-Wading River is divided into two general camps: the softball girls and the lacrosse girls. Depending on which day of the week it is, the Shoreham girls basketball team playing in the Town of Brookhaven Basketball League can count on at least one group’s absence. (more…)
