One more win, and they’re in.
The Southold/Greenport high school softball team could clinch a playoff berth as soon as Thursday when it plays in Port Jefferson. That’s especially significant because the Clippers haven’t reached the playoffs since 1997.
The last time Southold/Greenport reached the high school softball playoffs, the current Clippers had not even been born. It was decades ago, all the way back in 1997.
That string of 19 playoff-less years may finally come to an end this year. Judging by the way the Clippers have been playing, not only do the playoffs look likely, but a Suffolk County Class C championship is a real possibility and who knows beyond that.
