Schools: Local teams bring home titles – Huntington Now
The Northport High School field hockey team won the New York State Class A Championship after an unbeaten 21-0 season, just a day after beating Clarence High School in the Class A semifinals from the NYS.
Olivia McKenna scored the only goal of the game with an assist from Shannon Smith.
The team won the Long Island Championship last season, but couldn’t play a state championship due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The team coined the hashtag “#NotDoneYet”.
âThis team encompasses what it means to be a Northport High School Tiger athlete,â said Mark Dantuno, director of health, physical education and athletics. âThey’re playing hard and their unbeaten record reflects that. The commitment of their
coaches, their parents and of course the students themselves, that’s what makes this team amazing.
The Elwood-John Glenn team won the 2021 #nysphsaa Class B Women’s Volleyball State Championship.
