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.

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.
