Lucas Kosmynka brings a photogenic swing to the tennis court. And he’s not bad behind the camera, either.

It’s hard to say what Kosmynka is better known for at Mattituck High School — as the school’s top tennis player or for his talent with video. One stands a decent chance of finding Kosmynka holding a camera or a tennis racket at a given moment. The senior has done well with both. READ

Whether it’s in the Mattituck High School hallways or out on the school’s tennis courts in the offseason during frigid weather, one is bound to see Lucas Kosmynka with a tennis racket in hand.

That explains a lot.

“He’s a student of the game,” said Cory Dolson, who succeeds Mike Huey as Mattituck’s coach. “He loves playing tennis. He’s the kind of kid who’s on the courts all year-round, when it’s cold. The kid has always got a tennis racket in his hand.” READ

Colby Suglia and Ethan Schmidt have both been to the New York State Public High School Athletic Association Wrestling Championships before — as spectators.

This time was different. This time the two Mattituck High School juniors were participants. And, yes, it’s a lot different when you’re on the mat, grappling with the best wrestlers in the state, nearly all of whom are sectional champions. READ

Finishing as a county runner-up in wrestling is a nice achievement and something to be proud of, especially in Suffolk County, widely regarded as the top wrestling section in New York State.

And yet, at the same time, it’s awfully bittersweet coming so close to that top step on the podium.

Ethan Schmidt and Colby Suglia know the feeling well. Last year the Mattituck/Greenport/Southold wrestlers were both county runner-up finishers.

Now they know what it feels like to be county champions. READ

Malachi Boisseau doesn’t waste time. When the whistle blows to start a wrestling match, he goes right to work, bringing energy and a sense of extreme urgency. He wants to end the match in the first period, and for good reason.

“His biggest strength is the first period,” Mattituck/Greenport/Southold coach Cory Dolson said. “His biggest weakness is the third period.” READ

Two poster-sized photos that are to be hung in the Mattituck High School wrestling room are a reminder of who Mattituck/Greenport/Southold no longer has. That is Jack and Luke Bokina, who last season became the first twins from Long Island to win state championships.

That’s a big hit, but it’s not the only one. READ

The surprise team didn’t have one final surprise left, but it sure took its best shot.

It was hard to know what to expect of the Mattituck High School girls tennis team entering this season. The Tuckers, under a new coach, had lost their entire singles lineup to graduation. Players, untested at the varsity level, had yet to prove themselves.

So, what do the Tuckers do? They go on to win the Suffolk County League VIII championship. READ

A little Bishop McGann-Mercy green has blended in really well with Mattituck blue.

Kelsey Bundrick’s arrival on the scene couldn’t have been better timed, at least from the Mattituck High School girls tennis team’s point of view. For the first time in five years, the Tuckers have a first singles player not named Liz Dwyer. Dwyer’s graduation this past spring left a huge opening at the top of the singles lineup.

Enter Bundrick. READ
