Scanning down the Mattituck/Southold girls lacrosse team’s 28-player roster, two things stand out. They would be the Tuckers’ only two seniors. And one of them, goalie Emily Perry, sat out the entire season with an injury.

The only starting player from this year’s team that the Tuckers lose to graduation is defender Corinne Reda.
