Greenport High School christened its new-look gym in style Tuesday night. Not only is there a new floor on Coach Al Court, which will be dedicated to former Porters coach Al Edwards on Dec. 20, but there are also snazzy new purple bleachers with the letters “GHS” spelled out in gold.
But what Greenport may have liked best of all was the harassing, pressure defense it applied in its 86-31 season-opening win over Bishop McGann-Mercy.

Up-and-coming underclassmen on the Mattituck/Greenport/Southold high school wrestling team have an opportunity that young Tuckers in similar situations didn’t have in recent years.
Now is not the time for reflection.
Liz Dwyer said that in time, well after she graduates from Mattituck High School and whatever college she decides to attend, she will reflect back on her time playing basketball for the Tuckers. She will have a lot to reflect on, too, including perhaps some memories that haven’t been created yet. READ
The awards, honors and statistics speak for themselves, but when they are brought up, Ahkee Anderson speaks about something else. That loss to Stony Brook in the Suffolk County Class C boys basketball final this past February still stings.
The Mattituck High School girls basketball team has never won a regional championship, but it has come close. For a second year in a row the Tuckers reached the Southeast Region Class B final this past March, only to be denied by Irvington.
The Greenport High School boys basketball team made a tremendous leap last season, rising from a 4-14 record the season before to winning the League VIII championship, reaching the Suffolk County Class C final and finishing with a 14-8 mark. That’s quite a jump.
Coach Ev Corwin believes the Porters have another big jump in them as a new season beckons. READ
Baseball is ingrained in Luke Hansen’s family history. In addition to the sport being an important part of his past and present, he wants it in his future.
Hansen has high aspirations. He would like to play professional baseball one day. “That’s my end goal,” he said. READ
Mattituck High School has an impressive addition to its trophy case.
In yet another testament to the Mattituck/Greenport/Southold wrestling team’s historic 2016-17 season, the Tuckers were presented Friday with The Pascal Perri Cup for being the top Division II team in New York State. READ
Volleyball may be the ultimate team game.
In no other sport, I think, are the players tied together, almost as if by a rope. The six players on the court are inextricably linked, the success of one player depending on the ability of the player next to her, and so on. READ
College signing ceremonies don’t always go in threes, but lacrosse players Alex Beebe, Ashley Burns and Jane DiGregorio wouldn’t have it any other way.
The three Mattituck High School seniors are close friends, have risen through the ranks together and played on the same teams for years, so it seemed only natural to them. Why not put pen to paper and sign their national letters of intent together at the same time and place? READ
