In many respects, Luke Kosmynka’s season has mirrored that of the Mattituck High School boys tennis team. Both knew they were going to be competitive, they just didn’t know how competitive.
Well, both have exceeded expectations. The Tuckers (10-2, 10-1), who lost several seniors to graduation, are tied with Southampton for the Suffolk County League VIII lead and Kosmynka could not have asked for a better season as the No. 2 singles player. He is a perfect 11-0. READ

For good reason, too. In the final regular-season home game for Liz Dwyer and the rest of Mattituck’s seniors, they won and in the process clinched a share of the Suffolk County League VII girls basketball championship. READ
As a deep freeze continued to envelop Long Island, Mattituck didn’t freeze in the big moment. Instead, Mackenzie Daly iced things for the Tuckers down the stretch.
Just three days into the new year, Mattituck put itself in the driver’s seat in the race for the Suffolk County League VII girls basketball championship.
