Mattituck High School finishes third in all-sport championship award


From a state championship in soccer to a state title in baseball, Mattituck High School achieved a near unprecedented level of success in athletics this past year. 

All those accolades, when combined together, put Mattituck as one of the top schools in the state for the 2014-15 school year. Mattituck finished third overall in the boys standings for the Kerr Cup, an all-sport championship award presented by the New York Sportswriters Association. The Kerr Cup is determined by tallying points for how successful each team in a school is over the course of a year.

For the boys, Mattituck finished third behind Shenendehowa (42.17) and Victor (35). Mattituck totaled 30 points and was the top Class B school in the state.

The results were announced Tuesday morning by the New York Sportswriters Association.

In boys and girls combined, Mattituck finished eighth and was the third Class B school.

Mattituck was the only Long Island school to finish in the top-10 for the boys and girls combined score.

This is the seventh year of the Kerr Cup. It’s the first time a North Fork school made the list.

The success for Mattituck this past season was sprinkled throughout the year. Starting in the fall, the boys soccer team won the Class B state championship. The wrestling team in the winter won the Division II county title. And the baseball team in the spring won the Class B state championship.
