TUCKERS 20, CLIPPERS 11

Trish Brisotti and Colby Prokop have been on this rather remarkable journey together for a while now. They began playing lacrosse together since they were in third grade. They both made the Mattituck/Greenport/Southold high school varsity team four years ago as freshmen. There they were on Friday, standing together during a halftime ceremony, being recognized as the Tuckers’ only two seniors on senior day.

Brisotti and Prokop have seen a lot during their time with the Tuckers — the good, the bad and the ugly, as they say. They saw some of the lean years (the Tuckers went 1-13 and 5-11 during their freshman and sophomore seasons). They saw a major breakthrough last year when the Tuckers posted their first wining record (9-7) and reached the playoffs for the first time.

And now this. The Tuckers, in their sixth year of varsity play, are already assured of another winning season and a place in the playoffs. Brisotti and Prokop had to feel good about that as they took their places not far from their younger teammates, who lined up during the halftime presentation on the field in Cutchogue.

Before Trish Brisotti was even a full day old, she already owned her own lacrosse stick, a small plastic one that she still has.

“It was a tradition in my family that when you’re born, you’re presented with your first lacrosse stick,” Brisotti said. “It’s kind of weird.” (more…)
