Katherine Lee doesn’t like running in a crowd. Her preference is to pull ahead of the pack and do her own thing.
So, the Shoreham-Wading River High School sophomore took and held the lead for the first half of the 3,000-meter final in the Section XI Individual Championships/state qualifier on Friday at Port Jefferson High School. At the same time, Lee had company. Bay Shore junior Bridget Kanaley wasn’t far behind.
The Suffolk County Class B boys lacrosse final didn’t start the way Shoreham-Wading River wanted it to. Sayville was taking it to the Wildcats, who were on their heels and looking out of sorts. At halftime, Shoreham was on the short end of a 5-2 score.
The Wildcats can’t say they haven’t been there before. Just five days earlier, in the semifinals, they trailed Comsewogue, 4-2, at halftime.
This race promised to be a good one, and it didn’t disappoint.
It was an intriguing sight, to be sure.
