This has been a good run for the Mattituck High School girls track and field team. Coach Chris Robinson sees no reason for it to end just yet.
Mattituck ran through all six of its Suffolk County League VIII dual meets last year, going a perfect 6-0 for a second straight league championship and seventh overall. “We plan to continue that,” said Robinson. READ
Before Bella Masotti had even been handed the baton for the second leg of the 4×200-meter relay, she had already handled quite a workload in the Suffolk County League V Championships Sunday. The Mattituck High School freshman was tired after competing in the 55- and 300-meter events earlier, but they may have served as a good warmup for her. READ
As with just about any sprinter, Max Pasko felt he could have run faster. However, there were extenuating circumstances.
The Greenport/Southold sophomore has been dealing with shin splints and hamstring issues, but that didn’t prevent him from making a strong showing in the boys winter track League V Championships Saturday at Suffolk County Community College in Brentwood. READ
What may be the longest road trip in Suffolk County high school sports continues.
The Bishop McGann-Mercy girls volleyball team is a team without a home. Because of work being done in Mercy’s gym, the Monarchs haven’t been able to use it at all for practices or matches this season. READ
You know that new car smell?
Greenport/Southold has a new volleyball smell.
Evidence of that newness is seen from the new gym floor on the Porters’ home court at Greenport High School to the school’s new volleyball setup (posts, net, referee stand included) to new uniforms to new balls and even to new players.
The Mattituck High School girls track and field team has fond memories of 2016. After all, it was the year that brought the Tuckers their first league championship in 16 years.
A remarkable 73-73 tie against Bishop McGann-Mercy ended up having huge implications. Both teams finished with identical 4-0-1 records and a share of the Suffolk County League VII title. Does that make the Tuckers driven to repeat?
Frank Massa, the Mattituck High School girls volleyball coach, was in the school’s weight room one day this past winter when athletic director Gregg Wormuth walked in.
“Frank, I hate to do this, but I’m going to ruin your day,” said Wormuth.
After all the raw days of cold, rain and wind this spring, nice weather finally made a belated appearance for the Mattituck High School girls track and field team on Monday. It has been a while. Then again, the Tuckers had waited for something even longer: a league championship.

At the start of the high school girls volleyball season, it’s the dream of every team in New York State to play their final game of the year at the Glens Falls Civic Center, the site of the New York State Public High School Athletic Association Championships. READ

If the athletes on the Mattituck High School girls track and field team have a noticeable bounce in their step these days, it may be because they have a brand new track to run on this year, a blue surface that gives runners some bounce.
The Tuckers recently did away with their old cinder track and have modernized with an all-weather surface. They have already seen the benefits of the new track. For one thing, they have been able to hold some outdoor practices that they might otherwise not have been able to had the cinder track still been in place.
“It’s just a different feeling coming out there than in the past from my experience as well as the girls,” coach Chris Robinson said. “They’re very excited about it. I’m very excited about it. The coaches are very excited about it.” (more…)
