On an emotional night for the Southold/Greenport girls soccer team, Grace Syron celebrated the squad’s first Suffolk County title in 30 years in the best way possible.
She scored the first two goals in a 3-0 victory over The Stony Brook School in the Class C championship game at Islip High School Friday night and dedicated the win to her late mother. Kathleen Syron passed away on Sept. 15. READ

The seven seniors on the Southold/Greenport girls basketball team knew that, regardless of the outcome, Thursday’s game would be the last they will have played in the Southold High School gym. What they didn’t want, however, was for it to be the last game of their high school careers. (more…)
The finish to the Mattituck/Greenport high school wrestling team’s Suffolk County League VII season was anticlimactic, to be sure, but that didn’t detract from the magnitude of the achievement. After all, an undefeated league season is an undefeated league season. That’s not too shabby. (more…)
