Mattituck might have looked at its penultimate regular-season boys basketball game as a slam dunk, but Ryan Seifert took things to a different level.
Seifert, who had never dunked in a game before, was presented with a golden opportunity 5 minutes, 26 seconds into Monday night’s Suffolk County League VI game at Port Jefferson High School. Xavier Allen set him up and Seifert took care of the rest. The 6-3 senior slammed down a right-handed dunk. READ
When you’re coming off the bench in a high school girls basketball game, playing time can be quite precious.
So, no one has to remind Mattituck’s Ashley Perkins or Alexa Burns that they must find ways to make an impact. (more…)
Since Sabrina Basel wasn’t feeling too well, Mattituck/Southold/Greenport girls soccer coach Chris Golden started the senior defender at outside midfielder. Less than a minute into the match, Basel must have been feeling a whole lot better.
Just moments after the opening kickoff, Basel scored her first goal of the season, kick-starting MSG’s 7-1 throttling of Port Jefferson Thursday at Southold High School. READ
Rain, rain, go away. Now they’ll have to play another day.
Two winless high school baseball teams, Southold and Port Jefferson, were hoping to pick up their first win Friday morning, but that meant having to get their game against each other in. So, with an ominous weather forecast, the game’s starting time was pushed up an hour to 9 a.m. in an effort to beat the weather. It helped, but it wasn’t enough. READ
It was almost as if the five Southold/Greenport seniors didn’t want the final home basketball game of their high school careers to come to an end. For a while there, it seemed as if it never would. READ
Practice is important.
Perhaps that’s the overriding theme to come out of the Southold/Greenport high school girls basketball team’s loss in Port Jefferson on Monday night. READ
You know that new car smell?
Greenport/Southold has a new volleyball smell.
Evidence of that newness is seen from the new gym floor on the Porters’ home court at Greenport High School to the school’s new volleyball setup (posts, net, referee stand included) to new uniforms to new balls and even to new players.
It was a celebration 20 years in the making, and the Southold/Greenport high school softball team was making up for lost time. So, the Clippers celebrated and celebrated, and then celebrated some more.
They screamed. They hugged. They danced. They threw confetti.
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.
That string of 19 playoff-less years may finally come to an end this year. Judging by the way the Clippers have been playing, not only do the playoffs look likely, but a Suffolk County Class C championship is a real possibility and who knows beyond that.
Two hundred career wins mean a lot of things. What do they mean to Mike Carver?
“It means that I’m a lot older than when I started — 200 wins older,” the Southold High School baseball coach cracked.
