As the girls stepped off the bus back at Mattituck High School Saturday night, “We are the Champions” began to blare over a portable speaker. The girls on the Mattituck/Southold girls lacrosse team began singing along as friends and family that had gathered to welcome home the state champions snapped photos.
It was a triumphant return home from Cortland for the Tuckers, who earlier in the day defeated Bronxville, 12-1, in the Class D state final. It was the first state title in program history.
Here’s a look back at some more photos from the championship game:
