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.
Game day is finally approaching.
Following a 20-year wait, the Southold/Greenport high school softball team has returned to the playoffs. As Suffolk County’s only Class C qualifier, the Clippers have had to wait until Thursday when they face Nassau County champion East Rockaway in a Southeast Region semifinal at Hofstra University.
Southold/Greenport has waited 20 years to return to the high school softball playoffs, and now that the Clippers are finally back in the postseason, there’s more waiting.
Since Southold doesn’t have any opposition for the Suffolk County Class C title or the Southeast Region semifinals, the Clippers advance directly to a regional final on June 3. The opponent and site are to be determined.
It was a celebration 20 years in the making, and the Southold/Greenport high school softball team was making up for lost time. So, the Clippers celebrated and celebrated, and then celebrated some more.
They screamed. They hugged. They danced. They threw confetti.
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.
