The Mattituck Tuckers know their ABCs. It’s just that like their opponents Tuesday night, the Mount Sinai Mustangs, they had never won a Suffolk County Class A-B-C title before.

Mount Sinai chalked that off its bucket list, though, thanks to some inspired play from Veronica Venezia and Gabriella Sartori. They scored 14 points each to help beat Mattituck, 59-42, at Suffolk County Community College in Brentwood.

Four of the eight Mattituck/Greenport/Southold wrestlers who made it to Times Union Center in Albany on Friday secured a place in Saturday’s Division II semifinals. Then two of those four, seniors James Hoeg and Tanner Zagarino, went on to claim the first individual state championships in team history.

To put it all in perspective, as New York State Public High Schools Athletic Association executive director Robert Zayas did during the pre-finals ceremonies, over 20,000 young men wrestle in New York State. The top 30 were crowned Saturday night in the 55th annual NYSPHSAA Championships at Times Union Center in Albany.

Four Mattituck/Greenport/Southold wrestlers were among the finalists who paraded into the arena for the finals. Mattituck has never had a state champion wrestler before.

History beckoned.

The mind had trouble believing what the eye was seeing. A halftime look at the scoreboard at Suffolk County Community College’s Brookhaven Gym in Selden showed Greenport High School’s boys basketball team with a mere 12 points. That required a second glance, and then a third and a fourth.

Twelve points?

“It really is astonishing,” said Stony Brook coach Mike Hickey.

Talk about a single-mindedness of purpose.

The awards ceremony for the Section XI Dr. L. Robert “Doc” Fallot Memorial Championships had just started and some of the Mattituck/Greenport/Southold high school wrestlers were already talking about what was next: the New York State Public High School Athletic Association Championships later this month.
