The ’84 track squad

On this day 34 years ago, the boys’ track team earned a fourth of five consecutive League Championships with a 127-20 victory over Mattituck.

The 1984 boys’ track team will be counting on the experience of returning lettermen and a couple of new students as it attempts to continue its tradition of excellence in league and conference competition. Richard Alioth (400m hurdles), Andy Hoffman (3200m run), Pierre Lawrence (11, 200m dashes), Ward Regan (110m hurdles), Paul Sanford (400m hurdles), John Shannon (3200m run), and Richard Wittman (800m run) all placed in last season’s conference championship. Newcomers Larry Hutchenson and Joel Whitman have shown evidence in early practices of talent that should mean points for the Shrike Cindermen.

Volovaya in action earlier this season (PC: Bruce Jeffrey)

This afternoon, in the first playoff match in girls’ badminton history, the #6 Bears overcame a 2-4 deficit by winning the final three matches of a 5-4 win over #7 Northport.

Mary Wang won her #1 singles match (11-4, 11-4) and Ariel Wang and Sophie Cai took their #2 doubles match (15-13, 15-1), but the Bears dropped #4 singles, #5 singles, #1 doubles, and #4 doubles to fall behind the Tigers, 2-4.

With their season on the line, reinforcements, fresh from the AP Euro exam, came in the form of Masha Volovaya, Judy Liu, Lily Zhang, and Ella Liu. Volovaya (11-3, 11-0) and Judy Liu (11-4, 11-3) cruised in their #2 and #3 singles matches to knot the match at 4-4, leaving the #3 doubles match as the decider. With all eyes on Zhang and Ella Liu, the tandem came through with a 15-11, 15-5 victory to send the Brook into the Suffolk County semifinals.

The Bears move on to face top-seeded Commack on Thursday afternoon at Half Hollow Hills East HS. The 3rd-seeded boys’ team matches up with #2 Commack, also on Thursday afternoon at Hills East.
