A hallway wall that runs adjacent to the Southold High School gym bears awards for the school’s various sports teams over the years. Down near a corner at the end hang the boys tennis team’s modest contributions: two league championship plaques for 1993 and 2000.

Luis Morales had been warned to expect low numbers when he took over as the new coach of the Greenport/Southold high school boys track and field team. Morales, however, was pleasantly surprised to end up with 32 athletes on his team, a nice number for a small school.

But there is another number that Morales and his athletes have to feel good about: 3-0.
