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.

It looks like it’s going to get crowded at the top of the Suffolk County League VIII boys tennis standings.

SUFFOLK COUNTY TEAM TOURNAMENT | THUNDERBIRDS 6, TUCKERS 1

Like Mount Olympus, the upper three tennis courts at Half Hollow Hills East High School in Dix Hills sit on an elevated plot of land, with greenery and trees bounding two sides and birds of all types gliding from one tree to another.
